And, it's a good tool to cut through the cat and mouse game of trying to figure out another person's interest all night. This is one of the most direct ways to tell if a person is really interested. Magazines, journals, dating blogs, studies -- and we'd be willing to bet, flirting connoisseurs -- would all agree that it's through eye contact.There are a few different forms of eye contact, so follow closely for tips.If a person looks over at you from across the room and looks away when you look back a few times (we're not talking about stalkers here), chances are they are in to you.
A word to the wise: Be careful about the direct eye contact approach.
Because it is so direct, both of you need to be on the same page.
If someone you like looks away or stops making eye contact with you, chances are they are not interested so you need to move on.
In addition, constant staring at a person outside of social settings and flirting situations, borders on the line of a Criminal Minds television episode.
But for those on the prowl on a Saturday night, making direct eye contact for long periods of times is not only acceptable, it's welcomed.
