When you are talking to someone...

where do you look?

I normally look at their mouth (so that I can make out what they're saying), and if its a girl, I obviously glance at her chest every second or so :D

    when i talk to people i look into their eyes, which most people comment on and say that it's strange, but i can't help it.

    I would go for eyes, but this can be a bit intense sometimes, something they teach in counseling is to look at the top of their nose: this gives the impression of looking into eyes but is less confrontational. I use this and it is very effective.

    I just generally look at their face. I've never really thought about it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    If I like the person or know them really well then I never notice where I look. But if I don't like them or I'm nervous I'm one of those shifty people who looks all around then and says "anyway...." a lot. I'm getting better at it but its still very annoying!

    I'm getting better at eye contact now...so eyes, mainly.
    Good suggestion, Hobbs :)
    Lots of eye contact can be intimidating.

    was just about to ask if you had scary eyes, but i remember you saying that they're the same colour as mine...so that can't be it :p

    I don't think about where I look when I talk to people. I don't know where I look. If I think about it, I get really self-conscious and don't know where to look and feel really uncomfortable, so I don't think about it.

    Does that make sense?

    i look at the floor, i look at the wall, i look at the tv, i look at their forehead. i *never* look people in the eyes, its weird when ya do.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    if its someone im attracted to or nervous around i stare at the bridge of their nose, as it gives the impression of concentration, when really youre conducting an in depth analysis of their nose.

    if its someone i dont want to talk to ill look anywhere

    Yep. Sometimes I become really aware that I'm looking them in the eye and then I get really uncomfortable and have to look somewhere else. But then I have to keep glancing back so they don't think I'm trying to avoid looking at them. Um?

    Eye contact can be a bit full on at times.

    their eyes, breast and if i like the girl look at her all over, gives the impression you like her ;)
