Commenters were excited to try the “psychology love eye trick.”

“I’m about to make the world mine,” one user wrote.

“I do this to everyone just because it’s fun,” another said.

Others were skeptical.

“It helps if you’re super pretty,” one user said.

“Y’all are this desperate?” another asked.

For what it’s worth, plenty of research shows that eye contact can have an impact on whether or not people feel attracted to you. The hack might not be magical, but it’s not too farfetched.
