Can you maintain eye contact when talking to people?

Why can a person not maintain eye contact when they talk to people?
I can't.

Lack of eye contact is a trait of autism.

I win every staring contest... because I look straight into your soul 😈

Typical of an introvert. I can see a lot more of them than I should when I look into someone's eyes and it breaks my train of thought. Dandy finds it difficult being so amazing.

I am about half-deaf and read lips and I became very aware in my 20s I didn't make eye contact. I learned to look at people's eyes but focus about a foot in front of their faces so I could also see their mouths.

I have this image in my head of you being slightly cross eyed when you do that :>

@Fernie: Maybe that explains why I've never been married?

@hunkalove: HA! the cross-eyed need love too!

Sometimes I can. For me it was due to shyness.

I keep constant eye contact with the person I am talking to and listening to. If they can't do the same and keep looking away I have trouble trusting what they are saying. Being unable to look into someone's eyes means something

Probably they are intimated by the person they're talking to, not interested with the conversation or just not at the moment :)
