For me, eye contact is based a lot around how long I have known the person. If they're long-time friends or family, I feel a bit more comfortable making eye contact with them, though I probably still make less eye contact than normal. Most of them accept that. If I don't know someone very well, I don't make very much eye contact at all. A little bit, slightly more if I like the person.
It also seems to depend on what we're talking about. If it's a neutral topic or something I know a bit about (have some authority on), then I'll make more eye contact than if it's talking about emotions/feelings or about something I know nothing about.
Mood probably has some effect too, as I think I'm more sociable when happy/content.
If someone in authority is mad at me, I barely make eye contact at all, adopt a submissive position and all that.
I always think that looking into someone's eyes is like looking into someone's soul. Somehow, you can read what's going on with them by looking at the eyes. I don't like people to be able to read me.
I do find that I don't know how to react to, or feel uncomfortable with, other people's strong emotions. I will occassionally attempt to offer support, but that's mostly to make it stop.
I always slept near-completely under my blankets, with a small place for me to breath. Partly, it was due to a fear of monsters and partly, it had to do with light. I found that I had to be in complete darkness to sleep. Any little bit of light keeps me up, even today. I probably sleep almost the same way now as I did then, on my stomach with the cover pulled over most of me except my face (up to the ear).
We all wear masks, every day, every where. The difference is that I can't take mine off.
