Exclamation HELP! I can't look girls in the eye!

A couple of years ago, I could easy look girls in the eye because I was just playing games and stuff, but now that I have gained an attraction for them I find myself looking away when I talk. I can speak to girls fine but I just can't look them in the eye for more then a second or two. I don't know if this is some kind of shyness issue or something but if you can give me advice I would really apreciate it.thanks!

I had this issue three years ago when I was in 5th Grade. I frequently stammered and most of the time, I would always lose eye contact to the girl that I'm talking to. I finally overcame it when I was in 6th by being confident, calm, cool and collective. Be it just a simple conversation or help with an assignment, it would really help you when you try to be confident to yourself, calm with your gestures, cool with you actions and collective to the conversation and to the person to your talking to rather than to be shy, act tensed and nervous. Hope that this advice helps.

Yah I have been told that I am timidby other peeps
but Today in school I focused on having conversations with girls and I was able to talk to them while looking in the eye. I tell myself to act calm and casual and It works!
The only problem I have now is that I can barely even look at my best freinds face without looking away
i'm fine with other girls but lately it's been very hard to talk to my best friend that I've known since I was a toddler

It's hard to look at girls in the eyes but eventually you will get use to it and you wont even be thinking about it and staring in there eyes while talking and they will get creeped out ^^ lol

All you need is to have confidence (but not too much).
Just keep calm. Don't rush anything.
It's not a big deal, it's normal to be a bit shy. The girl you're talking to is probably just as nervous and shy as you are.
