It’s been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. You can learn a lot about someone through their eyes.
I love eye contact. If someone is maintaining eye contact (and not glazing over) they’re interested in what you have to say. It’s connecting, it’s bonding and aside from that, eyes are just beautiful things.
One of the first things I notice about a man is his how he carries himself, his smile and his eyes. If they’ve a lovely smile and their eyes light up, it’s a wonderful thing to see. Speaking for myself here, in a world where everyone’s in such a hurry and we’re (guilty party here! *raises hand*) glued to smartphones for whatever reason, I appreciate eye contact all the more.
My ultimate dating pet peeve, aside from arrogance and generally just being a douche, is someone who has their phone by their side or seems more interested in their phone than you.
If it’s necessary for work, like if you’re on call or waiting for an important phone call, then that’s absolutely fine, I have no issue with that. But if you just can’t go five minutes without checking Facebook, truth be told that annoys me. It’s just plain rude. There have been cases in the past when I’ve been on a date and genuinely said: “Sorry but, can you put your phone away please?”
During sex, it honestly depends. Sometimes we do have some eye contact, sometimes we don’t. It’s not really something I pay much attention to as we’re just going with the flow. My boyfriend, if you saw him, has very much of a “tough guy” demeanour. Very much a guy’s guy, strong, tall (think like Jason Statham tough 😂) you get the idea. But with me, he can get quite shy sometimes in a way that’s quite cute.
During sex, sometimes if I’m looking at him for a while he’ll bury his face in to my neck with a giggle/other shy noise.
It’s adorable how red he goes when I jokingly use geeky chat-up lines on him! 😂 Like one I saw on a Breaking Bad meme: What do you get when you combine Helium, Yttrium, Selenium and Xenon? HEYSEXE!
All my love,
