I went on a date with a girl on Saturday night and she could barely hold eye contact for a second always looking away. I thought she just needed a few drinks to loosen up but she continued to do that the whole night. It really put me off. I'm pretty sure it's a self esteem and possibly fear thing but you should definitely work on it. I find it to be really annoying. Almost as annoying as when people who NEVER break eye contact with you and just stare and stare and stare. That's very rude as well. Pick up some subtle social cues.

I don't know, but I do not trust people who will not look me in the eye, and sometimes I even interpret it as a lack of respect. If I were you, I would work to make it a habit.

Throughout my life for as long as I can remember, I've always had a difficult time looking people into the eye and i'm not really sure why.
