If you’ve ever taken a public speaking class, you learned that maintaining eye contact is crucial in establishing a connection with your audience.
Same goes for meeting women.
You communicate way more to a woman with your body language than with your words, and your eyes are the first tool you can use when trying to get her attention.
Fixing your gaze on her is the first overt action you will take to convey your interest.
Here’s what maintaining eye contact, both during your approach and throughout the interaction, will convey:
- Clear interest in her
Maintaining eye contact during an interaction also makes you more memorable.
Here’s another fact. Eye contact makes you more attractive.
This last fact was part of a 2007 study at Aberdeen University in Scotland. Here’s the conclusion from one of the researchers, “What we’ve shown is that people seem to like someone who likes them – based on the direction of their gaze – and it’s particularly true of the opposite sex.”
Establishing eye contact as you approach a woman and maintaining it throughout your interaction is one of the most important things you can do.
But it takes practice.
We’re so used to shifting our eyes that it takes a concerted effort to fix them on one person.
Practice on friends and family.
Focus on this act during all your interactions and you’ll find it will come naturally when meeting women.
