Baby, Look Me in the Eyes (Ways We Communicate 3 of 8)

Part 3 of 8 

 Eye Contact – Do you have good eye contact with
your partner?  I briefly mentioned that
under body language, but it can be such a big way to communicate that I wanted
to pull it out separately too.  How about
if we are at a function and we are more than ready to leave?  We catch our partner’s eye and silently send
him/her the message with just our look. 
Other times simply making eye contact is enough when we encounter
something hilarious, but it is an inappropriate time to laugh or we are shocked
about something, but can’t say so out loud. 
This silent communication between two people is exceptionally powerful.
