Dear Carol: I can't make eye contact with people
Dear Eye Dropper,
You get points for realizing that meeting people’s eyes is considered a sign of interest, friendliness, courtesy and confidence. Why not practice seeing eye to eye with people who don’t intimidate you? For now, forget about the lifeguard or your crush. Make eye contact with your mom, friends, camp counselor, librarian, cousins. Everybody is shy at times, but make the effort and next thing you know, you’ll be making eye contact.
