How long can you stare into someone's eyes before it gets awkward? Science has the answer

How long is it possible to stare into someone's eyes before it starts to make them feek awkward? Based on science, not very long, apparently.

According to a new study by the Royal Society Open Science, it takes just 3.3 seconds on average before eye contact becomes awkward. They had 498 participants watch a video of an actor staring and indicate when the eye contact began to feel uncomfortable.

Curious how your staring measures up? Test it out using this video by Science magazine:
