"The strands in your eyes
That colour them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath."
-'I'll Be', Edwin McCain
No two ways about it, eyes are a massive turn-on for me. They're the most mysterious part of the body, by far the most expressive and draw me in more than just about anything else.
During conversation I always look someone in the eyes. It's one of life's little pleasures, but it can also make it hard to follow along because it's incredibly easy to get lost. There have been times when I've been talking with someone and realized after a few minutes, "I have absolutely no idea what you're saying." I never experience this when speaking with men, so it obviously runs deeper than what I see on the surface.
There's a tremendous connection that can be made through eye contact, it's far more powerful than many of us realize. We've all heard it said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, that we can tell a lot about a person just by gazing into them. If we're good at reading body language we can determine a lot of what someone's thinking or feeling by certain aspects of their eyes; the way they appear or where that person fixes their gaze during conversation. Pay attention and they'll speak without saying a word.
For example, we have very little control over our pupils; they dilate (enlarge) when we're interested in something we're looking at or the person we're talking to. Next time you're speaking with someone you think might be interested in you, check out their eyes. Flirt a little, then change the subject to something boring and watch what happens. It's all part of our eye body language (yes, that is a real term.)
I may do a post about body language, flirting and attraction later. But for now, some of my favourite eye candy...
Okay, who let the emu in??
