So, you know this guy and he only looks at you when he talks to you in a group?
It’s obviously become a little annoying.
Maybe it bugs him too!
Either way, there are some possible reasons why he only looks at you when you’re around other people.
7 Reasons Why He Only Looks at You When Talking in a Group
I’ll list the most common reasons why guys tend to only look at other people when talking in a group.
You can apply a little ‘spoon theory’ to this and get a better idea of the reason why.
1. Is he afraid to look at you?
He may feel shy around you or feel uncomfortable looking at you.
Or maybe he’s just really not great with people in general, and doesn’t know what to say around them!
Some guys get really shy around girls…
This could be because he is physically attracted to you, but he’s a little shy.
He may also feel a little awkward if you’ve been talking for some time, and you still haven’t looked at him.
2. Is he avoiding eye contact?
If he has a habit of avoiding eye contact with people, he may avoid looking at you too.
I have a friend who does this.
He doesn’t look at people when talking to them, but he’ll still occasionally look at me.
For example, I was at a noisy restaurant with him a few days ago and we were chatting away for about 30 minutes.
As usual, he barely looked at me, but he did make eye contact with me a few times.
3. He doesn’t know how to talk to you.
It’s great if you guys are good friends or close friends, but sometimes he may not know how to talk to an attractive girl!
He may be used to talking to other guys because they are his friend, rather than girls.
This could be one of the reasons why he avoids eye contact with you.
4. Is he shy?
Some guys are shy around girls!
And if they are around other people, then they tend to avoid looking at them for some reason.
This is one of the most common reasons why guys avoid talking to girls.
5. He’s anxious!
Guys sometimes get anxious when they are around people, so it could be one of the reasons why he looks at you more than others when he talks to you in a group.
But if he’s not used to talking in a group, this could be a problem…
The whole conversation has been going well, then look!
The day can’t end soon enough!
You’ve caught him looking at you too much.
You try to talk to him about it, but he doesn’t really know how to respond.
If he’s not great with people in general, he can be anxious when talking to them.
6. He’s nervous about upstaging the other guy.
Maybe he’s been standing in the corner of the group talking to you, but when it came to making a speech, he didn’t do well!
He was nervous, and he looked at you to look for reassurance!
If he’s only looking at you when talking to other people in a group, this could be one of the reasons why guys look more at girls.
7. He wants to be alone with you!
He’s not a horrible guy!
He just doesn’t want to talk to you in front of other people, and he doesn’t want anyone else to know that he’s talking to you!
He might find it embarrassing if he knows his friends are talking about him, or if girls are talking about how good-looking you are!
How To Make Him Look At You In A Group Setting
Okay, so now that we covered a few potential reasons why he only looks at you when talking in a group and we’ve set out 7 reasons why he may ignore the other people in the group, we need to know how to fix this.
First, check whether he doesn’t like talking to the other people that are around you.
If there’s no issue with that (he’s into that group), then check if there’s a problem with him not looking at you all the time.
You could try talking to him about it.
Ask him if he’s uncomfortable or something.
Just be sure that you know when to ask him.
He may feel embarrassed if you point out this ‘problem’ in front of the group.
But if his problem with talking to you is because he’s not used to talking around people, maybe I could suggest a few things to you…
If he doesn’t like talking around other people in general, try getting him out of his comfort zone a little.
You could try to do this by making him laugh hard.
Then he’ll be used to talking around other people and he’ll start looking at you more.
He may feel comfortable because you made him laugh, and as a result, he’ll look at you more often.
But I’ve tried it out before and it works!
If that doesn’t work, then try talking to him about something that makes him feel uncomfortable or anxious.
When a guy won’t look at you when he talks to you in a group, it can be an issue… it could be because he’s not used to talking around other people, or that he doesn’t take a liking to talking around other people.
In that case, there are many potential reasons why he only looks at you when talking in a group.
However, if he’s not used to talking around other people, then I’d suggest that you get him out of his comfort zone by making him laugh hard.
Or try talking about something that makes him feel anxious or uncomfortable.
He may then start looking at you more, especially if you laugh at him or talk about something that makes him nervous.
Other than that, there are no easy fixes for what you’re going through…
