I seem to have a problem with eye contact when talking to someone. In conversation, it makes me uncomfortable to stare someone in the eye when talking to them, it seems intimidating in a pathetic way.I tend to look away a lot which makes the person think that im not interested in them. Am i weird?

Same here. I think we're both normal, just shy.

i used to have that problem when i was a teenager,i tried really hard to pretend i'm normal but it only got worse lol cos i was terrified of how not normal i probably am,it seemed the whole world can stare at each other no problem,but i found it intimidating,i thing its the self esteem and confidence problems...when i get more serious problems in my life and i had to deal with them,-it made me a stronger person and i now i'm fine with some moderate eye contact,i still dont stare cos i dont need to,and if someone stares-thats just lack of manners...i still cant eat comfortably in public places though,i just cant relax,-theres always some wanker who looks right at you and the way you eat etc.at the same time i examine people sometimes without realising it,when they eat or talk to friends..i guess we cant avoid being a part of society,i wish i was comfortable with attention any time any place...still working on it and im 33.Lena

No you are not weird. But you do need to learn to make eye contact. Otherwise you give off the wrong impression.

For me it is normal because I have the same "problem", I think it's because we don't have self-confidence, when I see someone in the eyes I think "what does he think about me?".
(Sorry if I make mistakes, i'm not very good in english.)

I have the same thing, I believe it's because I fear confrontation. I look someone in the eye if I'm going to fight them. Or lie to them.

I have the same exact problem. People always get all mad, accusing me of not paying attention, but I simply hate eye contact. It freaks me out to stare at someone and vice versa.
