Blink, Damnit!

OK, so we all know eye contact is a good thing when talking to someone, right? NEWS FLASH: when you're in a conversation, and you give the constant, unflinching, unending stare-down, it's just creepy. We know you've read How To Win Friends and Influence People, we get it. You don't have to prove to us that you're not afraid to make eye contact. You look like a snake (which, consequently, I've found is quite fitting more often than not). Looking people in the eye in a natural, normal way as though you're a natural, normal human being will do just fine. Otherwise, you just make us wonder what the hell you're hiding behind that Sauron gaze that forces you to try to convince us how comfortable you are with yourself. Either that, or you're trying to tell me you want to have sex with me. If that's not the vibe you're going for, knock it off. And if you're a guy knock it off regardless, especially if that is the vibe you're going for.
