    Eye contact and smiling question

    Hello,

    So I know that eye contact, especially accompanied by a smile is a sign that a girl is interested. What I’m curious about is when it happens with someone you know? Is eye contact during a conversation simply a sign of respect? How can I tell if someone is just using eye contact to be friendly/polite during conversation vs conveying interest?

    It’s impossible to look at one aspect of anything and determine there is romantic interest.
    A person could simply be in a “great mood’ that day and feeling friendly period.

    You also have to consider the circumstances under which the exchange took place.
    You’d be surprised at how many people mistake friendly warm customer service these days for romantic interest.
    It may be one of the reasons why so many women in particular avoid smiling and saying hi to guys.
    They don’t want them thinking they’re “into them”.

    Now if there is smiling, eye contact, laughter, leaning in, and incidental touching or flirtatious banter/sexual innuendo….
    There is a strong possibility there is interest especially if it occurs multiple times.
    Simply put you have to tally up all their responses and behavior.
    If you feel there’s an opportunity then go for it! Don’t wait for a “sure thing”. Rejection isn’t the end of the world.

    In a world with over 7 Billion people rejection just means: NEXT!

    agree with the previous poster (d-s) …. how much eye contact people use is very individual anyhow. And also go by gut feelings is there a real vibe or not (not gut hopes).

    Ask her out. What do you stand to lose? Even if she doesn’t like you back, she will be flattered anyhow.

    Smiling and eye contact can be just friendly. But, if she combines that with things such as wanting to be around you a lot, playful touch, even a coy gaze…then she might clearly be indicating interest. Regardless, if you ask her out and she rejects you so be it. She’s not the only girl in the world.
