Trust is the number one thing that needs to exist for any successful relationship — friendship, friends with benefits, business, dating, whatever.
That includes fear, anxiety, anger, stress, and insecurity.
They also appear when you’re focusing intensely on something (like studying or playing a first person shooter).

Make initial eye contact and, from there, make the most of your gaze.
In body language theory, the direction of a person's gaze indicates where their attention lies; basically, we look at what we’re interested in. I’m pretty sure I look at everything I’m interested in.“I must have been in my own world,” I lied, knowing I had just been hiding behind my sunglasses.In that moment I began to wonder how my interactions with guys I was interested with would change if I made more of an effort to look them in the eye.Since Ok Cupid published their data in support of not smiling in pics, the tip has been quoted as gospel truth on dating advice blogs, PUA podcasts, dozens of dating subreddits, forums, everywhere.But, at the same time, widespread skepticism rose too.TL; DR: OKCupid’s study on male dating photos fails reproducibility If you’re a guy who uses online dating sites/apps, you’ve probably heard this one: don’t smile in your picture.
