But mostly, I look most people in the eye fairly readily. Not only does my job practically demand such, but I find I have greater control over non-verbal cues if I meet someone's eyes. And less talking is always a bonus for me in a job where I spend my time talking to customers all day. I have a harder time meeting someone's eyes when I'm attracted to them and we aren't involved in any way. Case in point, I could stare endlessly into W's eyes, but a stranger I think is cute, I might spare but the briefest of glances. Maybe it's because I don't want them to know I find them attractive and guess that my eyes/face must show that in some manner.
