    Default Bad Habit

    I have a bad habit of not looking at people "in the eye" when speaking to them.
    Apparently I do this to everyone, friends, colleagues, girls, boys, old people etc

    its very bad from what ive heard, people tend to think im snobbish or depressed or hiding something and whatever else they think.

    I never noticed it before.

    Any way I can fix it?
    Is it serious or not?

    What are you self-conscious about?

    I don't think it's serious, but it might be perceived in a way like you mentioned above.
    Not saying you're ill-mannered, but looking someone in the eye when talking to them is just good manners, IMHO.

    You break bad habits by replacing them with good habits. You build a habit by starting small and slowly building up. So, start by making a conscious effort to look someone in the eye once a day. Start with someone you feel comfortable around. After a day or two make a conscious effort to look two people in the eye a day. etc. etc.

    Looking women in the eye would be a lot easier if their eyes were on their boobs.
