What are rules for acceptable eye contact in your culture?
Eye contact is extremely important in American culture. Looking someone in the eye denotes honesty, interest in what they have to say, as well as love, or sexual interest. The eyes are the window to the soul, look me in the eye, the eyes have it, the eyes say it, etc. are all 'sayings' in our culture for a reason.
Much depends on the social situation. For example, if you are walking down a street and attempt to make eye contact with a woman she might consider that offensive. This is because men make sexual advances in this way. So you will notice that most women will not make eye contact in public places. In social situations, however, eye contact is important. To not make eye contact usually means you have something to hide.
there are no rules, eye contact is essential for understanding each other. Some cultures seem a little afraid of it, perhaps they have something to hide.
