Absolutely not. Stormrider may be cold and that's his style but there should always be some sense of subtlety with looking. As he mentioned, women know and have a kind of psychic ability to tell if you are slobbering all over them when you look at them or not.Should you be gawking at them giving them all your attention when you got nothing good going on for yourself in life?
Personally, I only look out my peripherial vision and not make things obvious. My rule is only look at them directly and hold eye contact if you are planning to approach them. Otherwise I don't really see a point in validating them. There maybe times when you can also tell if they are submissive with eye contact too but that is more of a game if you don't do anything with it. My $.02
