    Default Lack of eye contact: IOI?

    I was in a situation last night, a group of about 10 people, half women and half men...noisy brew pub scenario. Of the 10, about half knew one another and the other half were strangers.

    HB7 was sitting across from me... one of the familiars...and wouldn't look directly at me most of the night. By this, I mean she made eye contact with her friends, and with the strangers to either side of me, but not directly at me, for some reason. There were a couple of AMOG's on one end of the table, and the rest of the women were in the HB-6-8 range, she was a bit above the average at the table, I would say. Among the rest of the people at the table, she was a bit of a queen bee.

    I suppose it is possible that I was putting off some sort of off negative vibe... but the rest of the people at my end of the table were not feeling it, they were interacting with me fine. I think more likely that this chick was digging me and was being a bit shy.

    So, experts, please feel free to comment:
    1. Was this chick's apparent "shyness" possibly an IOI?
    2. How would you have approached in this scenario?

    Oh, side point: There were other targets at the table.. what I actually did was shrug it off and not worry about it...

    I'd also say that it is possible I was imagining the whole thing....

    Anyway, any opinion helps...

    Nobody will be able to answer this 100%.
    It's like asking, "Oh some girl looked at me in the supermarket, was that an IOI?!"
    No clue, unless you go talk to her or she does it multiple times.
    Generally you shouldn't care about IOI's, and escalate regardless of them no matter what or try to.
    Shy girls give absolute no IOI's, does that mean they're not interested? No, they're just shy.
    While confident outgoing girls will give IOI's out like its candy, does that mean they're interested? Possibly, or she's a flirt and loves getting attention from seducing you.
    Generally, I notice a girl's body language really well, and notice the IOI's as a bonus, but not something I depend on seeing.
    Like if I tell her a crazy story, and her body's turned toward me and she's giving me solid eye contact the entire time but just remains quiet, then that doesn't mean she wasn't thrilled listening to the entire story, she's just feeling quiet. Or doesn't know what to say because shes intimidated.

    Basically, take IOI's with a grain of salt. If you see them, awesome, definite confidence boost and keep plowing.
    If you don't see them, no worries. Just assume she's interested.
