It works on my nerves when people do not take their sunglasses of when they talk to me, espesialy the dark ones, i cant see their eyes, and i have no idea what to think, if i cant look into someones eye i feel very mistrustfull, and just whant to stop the conversation, after all your eyes is the window to your sole, and if you cant see someones eye you cant see their sole, And another thing is when some one else is sitting away from you and they talk about you, you know they are, but they are so stupid that they think because they do have sunglasses on, no one can see them. I mean realy, how stupid is that. It is like a big ostrich putting his small little head in the sand and his whole body is sticking out, and he thinks no one can see him. What do you think?

LOL...I'm not one for sunglasses. I don't like wearing them. However, since I have started driving, I tend to need them more if I am driving. However, I think it is so annoying to see people inside wearing sun glasses or somewhere where the sun is not shinning on them. Or even on cloudy and rainy days. What's up with that anyway? Do they think they are so hot that the sun shines on them tweny-four hours a day (those of you who have seen My Science Project, will know what I'm talking about here LOL...). Uh Uh, I don't think so! Take off your sunglasses when the sun is not there, you just look retarded LOL....

Haha talking with sunglass-wearing people is interesting. I mean hello, it's as if that person is too cool for you. But your second guy is more irritating. That is what you call near "backstabbing". So near that even you can hear those supposed backstabs. Really dumb if you tell me and it just shows what cowards they are. And how they underestimate you. They're really crazy.

I think it's not polite to wear sunglasses when you are talking to someone.It feels so uncomfortable.I agree with that point-eyes are the window to the sole.If you can't reach the sole ,maybe you are talking to a wood.With the sunglasses on ,you can't see what he is really thinking.

I feel the same way you do about the wearing of dark sunglasses. In normal conversation, eye contact is very essential and powerful. How we encounter people during a conversation can be influenced by how we look at them and meet their gaze. This look reveals our interest in the other party. Looking at people and meeting their eyes also helps strike up a friendship and create a positive impression. Looking away can lead to rejection or embarrassment. Given that eye contact is so important in conversations, people who choose to talk with their dark sunglasses on are really depriving the other party of establishing this contact and maintain a good conversation going. Some people will consider that this is a sign of rudeness, and I certainly subscribe to that. If someone does this to me, I will request that the person removes the sunglasses before I engage him/her further.

i also don't like people who keeps their sunglasses on while having a conversation to someone especially when they are not in a sunny or open place. the way i see it, its a sign of disrespect and insincerity to the person you are talking to. it is acceptable to wear a sunglasses and no one will forbid you to, but i guess sunglasses should be removed whenever you approach someone.

Same here. It gets into my nerves when I talk to a person hiden in black sunglasses. Others dont even have the courtesy taking them off after they enter buildings. A person who can't take off glasses when speaking to other people to me is considered a con or someone sly. I agree with you that your eyes are the windows to your soul. About the gossipers who hide themselves like ostrich, they diserve a burning slap across the face. I myself don't like to gossip.

I also don't like it. I actually get annoyed if people wear sunglasses at night or if it's raining or something. It seems like they can't see without their very precious specs. It's really weird and silly. If it's really hot then using sunglasses is acceptable.

i agree, some people can not part with them, have you ever see people resting them on their forhead, very strange.

I have to say not something I have particularly thought about, but guess I would like someone to take off their sunglasses if I was having a proper converstaion with them. For a two minute chat then don't think it would bother me. A couple of questions popped into my head though, what about talking to someone who is blind, and wore sunglasses? or if you were having a long conversation on a sunny beach? would you still want them to take off their glasses?

no i would not like that if they are blind, and the beach thing, i would also understand, but if you would go to a market for instance to buy something and the person selling the goods have sunglasses on, that would desturb me, or if you speak to someone in a shady spot, i think they can remove them. I just dont find it very personal.

I tend not to think about it a whole lot unless I am inside. I wear my sunglasses all the time outside. If I am out and about and just running in somewhere for a second I might keep my sunglasses on. If I am shopping or somewhere else where I will be indoors for awhile, I put my sunglasses on the top of my head like a headband.

Yes it is annoying when someone doesnt take sunglasses off, its like they are hiding behind them for some reason. You cant see if they are looking at you or if they are paying attention to you, and I find it uncomfortable if I cant see the expression in their eyes. It is pretty rude to leave them on really.

Hi flowie I do agree with you that gets on my nerves too. I wear sunglasses alot but always take them off when Im inside and talking to someone. I always look at peoples eyes too. I dont like when someone is talking to me and they wont look at me. That means they cant be trusted or they are lying.
