Something Wrong With Me Because I Don't Like To Look People In The Eye?

That is what someone just told me lol.

I don't like to look people in the eyes when I talk to them. Do I do it? Yes, as needed, like at work, etc. Do I do it with my friends or family members/people I don't know like customers at work? Not usually.

It's not that I can't. It's that I don't like to. It makes me uncomfortable. I have always been like that even as a young child. It's just simply uncomfortable for me.

Like I said I do it where I have to, like with my bosses, etc. It's uncomfortable for me then but I do it because they are my bosses. But I don't normally do it unless I have to.

That would really bother me if I was trying to have a conversation with you.

Cool hint.. If you stare at someone's nose, they can't tell you aren't looking at their eyes :-)

Eh. It isn't like you are anti social or straight up rude.

No, many people have an aversion to eye contact and have absolutely nothing wrong with them.

I'm the same. It doesn't help that every time I made eye contact with a boy while talking to him as a teen I was accused of flirting. I thought I was just being polite!

I have a Doc that doesn't look anyone in the eye. Maybe shyness or something along that line.
