Some people avoid eye contact for other reasons too, such as shyness or feeling self-conscious. But this is all subjective first you have to understand the context about why he is avoiding eye contact in the first place.

So, what is the context? I hear you ask. Context is the situation in which you notice him avoiding eye contact with you. Context is about who he is with, where he is, and what is going on around him at the time you notice the avoidance of eye contact. Think back to what was happening to give you a clue.

  • He could be trying to signal that he’s not interested.

1. He could be nervous, shy or have social anxiety.

It’s hard to tell when a guy likes you, but there are some signs to watch out for. One of the top reasons that a guy avoids eye contact is because he is shy or nervous.

Sometimes, when a guy is upset with you, he will avoid eye contact altogether. Think back to your last conversation and see if you upset him in any way.
