Welcome to day 2 of the College Dating Makeover Challenge, From Ice to Nice: 5 Days to Be More Approachable.
For those of you just joining us, this week the experts from The College Crush are going to share with you daily videos with simple challenges to help you go from shy to getting noticed. In a good way. (Not, in this sorta way.) Yesterday, your challenge was to put on a happy face.
Now that we’ve got our smiles down it’s time to move on to a big next step: eye contact. Eye contact with a smile is the easiest way for someone to notice you and know that it is good to make the approach. Remember, if guys think they are going to be shut down, they just won’t go there. It also exudes mucho confidence.
Quick fact: when you don’t make eye contact with people, the brain gives off a warning to the other person that you might be lying or distrustful, so this one is BIG. Definitely worth spending some time on if it isn’t comfortable right away.
If you are super shy, just start with quick glances and a smile until you get more comfortable. As you move into fabulous mode, make the eye contact longer, look away, back up and then slowly smile. It will be hard to resist!

And don’t forget to share your experiences in the comments section! At the end of the week, we’ll randomly choose one commenter to win a free one hour one-on-one session with the Dating Makeover Coach herself, Kira Sabin, to get to the nitty gritty of what isn’t working and what is.
