One of my professors is creeping me out. Kevin, Yvonne, and I were sitting talking while waiting for class to start last night. My prof comes up and starts talking to us. No big deal, except he was talking to all of us but staring at me. He would not break eye contact. I would look at the door, at Kevin, at Yvonne, at something on my desk, anything just to break eye contact. I thought maybe I was crazy but Yvonne noticed it too.
I'm not a shifty person. I have no problem looking someone in the eye. However, I also believe that the eyes are the windows to the soul. As such, prolonged eye contact is a very intimate gesture, reserved for a select few. I equate what he does with someone who stands too close. It goes against social norms.
Don't invade my space and don't invade my soul.
