The Reasons Why
You Make Him Nervous: That’s right. He might be playing hideaway with his gaze because you actually make him nervous. As in palms are sweaty type of nervous. He might have trouble connecting with you, because he isn’t ready to take it that far yet. See if you can catch him taking glances at you throughout the night. You might notice than when your stare lands upon his, he suddenly looks away! This is definitely a sign that you are making him nervous. Keep an eye on him to see if he does any fidgeting. This can also be a sign that he feels as if he is under pressure. Now it’s up to you to figure out whether you making him nervous is a good thing or a bad one.
He Has Trouble With It: Believe it or not, some people just simply have a hard time making eye contact with others. This is a trait that some people have. We cannot tell you exactly why someone would have this issue, but it does happen more often than not. In this situation, it usually takes a good amount of time of getting to know you before he will be able to consistently lock eyes with you. This is totally normal. How can you tell if this is the reason? Try getting to know him. Maybe strike up a conversation and try to make him comfortable around you. After a little while you will see them start to make more and more eye contact with you.
He Has Partner: Yes, sadly he may be averting his eyes because he should be placing them elsewhere. Such as on his girlfriend. This can often be the situation if you are seeing him at public places, such as parties, pools, parks or stores. He might have a girlfriend hanging around him that you can’t see or aren’t aware of. Or you might be hanging out with someone who would tell his partner if he was staring at you. You never know! This is definitely a strong possibility when it comes to guys avoiding eye contact. They don’t want to be in the doghouse for it!
He Doesn’t Like You: Alright, so we know this is confusing, because one reason he might not be making eye contact is that he likes you too much, but another is that he does not like you at all. Unfortunately they can both be true! But how can you tell when which reason is the truth? By paying attention to other things that he does, too. You must be observant to the other ways that he might be using body language with you. He might like you if he is flitting his eyes to you and away. However, if he is purely avoiding all forms of contact and making sure you do not get close to him, then there is a good chance that he does not like you. He might actually get the vibe that you are crushing on him and he doesn’t want to initiate anything with you. He does not want you to make conversation with him or stare at him. We know this is not what you want to hear, but yes it can be the reason why a guy might be avoiding eye contact with you.
He Doesn’t Mean To: And sometimes he might just not even know that you are trying to make eye contact with him. He might be too busy to notice. Try actually approaching him and making conversation with him to see if he will start to make eye contact with you then. If so, he might have just not realized what you were trying to do before- Make eye contact with him!
