In different part of the world eye contact can be seen as disrespectful depending on the situation and etc. I'm wondering for Albanians, do they have their own eye contact code. The guy I like is Albanian but he lives here in NYC and I caught him staring at me for like 4 second until I looked away, and then I looked again, and he was still staring but with a normal facial expression as distracted or curious. Could it mean he's attracted to me? He was not day dreaming for sure because he had his head tilted and everything.

it means he was thinking about his girlfriend but would definitely do you a favor...
Another version is it means he does like you.
Maybe you look like his previous one.
Maybe someone told him something about you.
Etc etc.
Who knows what his mind was telling him?! You should know better.
It looks like he's good guy though. I wouldn't let the girl look at me twice.
If he did, it means you must help yourself ...

so if a guy will see a girl in her eyes that is bad and she will take it as offending?

No, is not offending but sometimes you just have to be careful hwo you look at a person. I know in some Muslim country holding eye contact with a mere stranger could be seen as disrespectful.

i know someone got in trouble for looking at a girl in a bar. But that doesn't meant in Manhattan looking at a girl will be like asking for trouble.
