A blind spot.
It’s a good thing when it comes to eye contact.
But when it’s too many shades of grey, it can be frustrating, as in this case.
The only time I’ve ever been really bad at eye contact is when I was trying to pick out a cute pair of sunglasses.
I’m not alone.
I think I can get away with being too-familiar with eye contact in many situations.
But I’ve found that there are a few things that are easy to get in the way.
Here are the five things I’ve been doing wrong with eye-contact.
I’ve forgotten my eyebrows.
Eyebrow heights can be hard to predict, and a quick glance at your own face can tell you.
You’ll know when you’re wearing them, but you can never be certain if you’ve got the right eyebrow height.
I use a digital camera to snap my eyebrows, and my best bet is to measure them at an angle of just one eye’s width from my nose to my chin.
You can use this technique to find out the correct height, and you’ll also be able to tell when you’ve picked your eyebrow height correctly.
But you’ll never know until you try it out on a random stranger.
I don’t know if I’m doing my eye contact right.
If you’ve been reading my posts on this blog for a while, you’ll know I’m an optimist.
I love my camera and my camera loves me.
But sometimes I can’t tell if I’ve made eye contact correctly.
The first time I made eye- contact with a stranger, I didn’t know the person was female or male.
I was pretty sure I was staring at my phone or at a mirror and not my face.
I couldn’t get over how quickly it made me look, and I wanted to be able do it again, so I set about changing my mindset.
If my eyes weren’t correct, I’d lose interest in the interaction.
I could just ignore it and move on.
But what if I just didn’t notice anything?
The trick to knowing if your eye-candy is working is to take it for what it is, and then try to do it as often as possible.
If your eye contact has dropped off the charts, you might want to consider doing something about it, or you could try to find a different person you can interact with in the future.
If the answer is “no,” it’s time to rethink your approach to eye-attention.
I just don’t pay attention.
You probably know this, but I’ve noticed a lot of people seem to be struggling to pay attention in situations where they should be paying attention.
The same goes for people who are constantly texting or chatting, watching TV or playing video games.
For example, the more I watch TV or watch TV, the less time I have to pay real attention.
I feel like I’m in the “what are you looking at?” mode more than I do in the real world, and that’s not good.
I have a theory: when I’m watching TV, I’m distracted from the person watching me.
I look at their screen instead of my own.
I even use the same screen several times throughout the day.
But the more time I spend on my phone, the harder it is to keep my attention on the screen.
When it comes time to look at the screen, I feel overwhelmed.
If I feel distracted, I don (or don’t) pay attention, which is why I’m trying to be more mindful of eye contact, too.
It can feel as if I have my eyes on something and I can barely focus on my screen.
I get annoyed when I don ‘t get my way.
The fact that we don’t get our way can be a pretty bad sign.
For instance, I was a pretty busy person when I moved to New York City from Texas a few years ago.
I loved the new culture, the music, the food and the people.
But in my new city, I found myself getting annoyed when people didn’t get what I wanted.
For me, it’s always about what I want to do, not what I need to do.
And the less of a person I am, the easier it is for me to get annoyed.
When I was in Texas, I had to get my own way.
I had a lot more time on my hands and I spent a lot less time looking at my own phone or looking at the people around me.
It was frustrating.
Now, though, I realize that I do have to get what they want.
That means I’m able to relax, take some time for myself and not feel overwhelmed by the people I’m interacting with.
I need more confidence in my eye-level.
In some situations, I might not even notice that I’m making eye contact with someone else, but
