making eye contact with people feels good and people constantly diverting feels off or weird.

I'm pretty bad with social ques but vibe, things said implicity and how someone positions there body is one of the most major factors in how I determine what someone is meaning when they say something.

Once I figured out how to do it small talk, starting a convo and keeping one interesting and navigating to cool topics is very easy and not stressful at all

I can't do eye contact due to eye contact being weaponised by my violent father. He'd demand you look him in the eye then scream at the top of his lungs letting you know what a useless piece of crap you were. For good measure knuckles wrapping the crown of your head was usually the closing move.
