    I had never been aware of not making appropriate eye contact. When I started to observe myself I realised I wasn’t looking at people’s eyes, but usually at their mouths. I have practised trying to look at people’s eyes but can only do it if I screw my eyes up and can only do it for a moment. Like you, I don’t know what is normal.

  2. Yes, I’ve only recently become aware that what I have always thought of as ‘eye contact’ is not the same thing that most people think of as ‘eye contact’. I do look at people’s faces when I talk to them, but it does feel very uncomfortable and seems far too personal to be appropriate. I’m still not totally convinced that people actually look into each others eyes – seems far too weird.
