    I would have to say looking into someone’s eyes when they are telling me how they feel. It’s especially hard when that someone is upset at me or complimenting me.

  2. Joy says:

    I’m with you Gary. That’s how it is for me too.

    looking into someone’s eyes when they are telling you how they feel….you can get a lot of info out of some ones eyes….for example if there lying they go a certain direction……

  4. Karen Joy says:

    Ditto what Gary said.And why is it so hard to look at someone when they are giving a compliment anyhow?
    Great question by the way Joy!

  5. Lucy says:

    Both it hard, but I think I have a harder time looking at someone when I’m telling them how I feel

  6. Tosha says:

    Both are hard I agree.. Its worse for me when someone is telling me how they feel. If its a really emotional conversation.. I’m quick to downplay people’s feelings b/c I have a hard time handling peoples emotions and its harder to downplay or ignore when you are looking them in the eye and can see the emotions

    Other people have eyes? haha

    I have figured out that I have way too much estrogen. I am like a woman, in that I want to talk about everything (feelings included).

    I’ve never really given this question much thought. But upon reflection I have more difficult looking into their eyes when they are telling me how they feel. The reason is; it usually revolves around how I have made them feel sad, inadequate or otherwise “unhappy.” 😦

    OK it looks like I am the strange one, I don’t have a problem with either!

    Umm neither for me, I don’t have a hard time looking anyone in the eyes. If someone is upset with me then maybe I’ll have a harder time but not generally.

    Hmm, I can’t believe I’m the odd one out here. I don’t find it hard to look into people’s eyes when they are telling me how they feel. I love to stare into people’s eyes and try to figure out their state of mind just by how their eyes look. I’m actually pretty good at it, once I know the person.

    If I am afraid of the person for any reason, though, I have more trouble holding my gaze. Maybe that is a defense mechanism – keeping ready in case I’m physically attacked.

    As for looking into people’s eyes when I’m expressing my feelings . . . well, first of all, it is extremely hard for me to talk about “feelings.” So if I do manage to force the words out, I’m wanting to hide or run away. I’m not sure looking anyone in the eye at that time is even possible for me.

    Not sure…I’ll have to check it out and see…
    I’d imagine it is looking into someone’s eyes when I am telling them how I feel…mainly because I am always thinking about what I am saying and I am visual, so when I think about it, I picture stuff in my head and tend to look everywhere…
