I on occasion go to a social center for residents in my area. I have noticed one female member of staff there who although she seems friendly and chatty, I have noticed thet even though she makes eye contact with other staff and visitors she seems to avoid making eye contact with me.

Even it seems avoiding the general area where I am standing or sitting (I am male). I am not implying that she should acknowledge me, I am just curious about this behavior.
