Why don’t Autistic people like eye contact? Why is eye contact hard for Autistic people?
I can pretend to make eye contact for a moment by looking at someone’s nose but I have to take breaks from the eye contact. Sometimes I need to fake eye contact but I do not think forcing an Autistic person to make Autistic is healthy for the Autistic person.
I only like to make eye contact in close intimate situations and don’t do so or even fake it unless I have to – normally at work.
