Re: How much eye contact
Don't look at her for so long that she feels like you are gazing into her heart and soul to figure out if she will be your future wife. That is creepy. Keep it down to a max of three second intervals. The time span of looking away can be a fraction of a second, or a minute, but put a cap on your staring time, you must.
