Guys-in-glasses filter: do contact lenses make a difference to the social side of things?

I've worn glasses for a number of, erm, decades. Suddenly, a few weeks ago, by a concatenation of circumstances (I lost my glasses, was abroad, replacement pair broke) I found myself wearing lenses for three weeks (previously I wore them exclusively when swimming). In that time, I've noticed that my relationships with people have improved, slightly but perceptibly. I'm a bit bouncier, a bit more outgoing, a bit more fun to be around; and people seem to be easier and more relaxed with me. It's chicken-and-egg in that I don't know which comes first: am I generating this response in others, or are they making me feel good: but either way I put it down to the removal of that barrier between me and the world, aka my spectacles. Has anyone else been in my position and had this experience, or am I kidding myself? Women please contribute, but I'm especially interested in the male perception. FWIW I'm not really thinking here of flirting and forms of romantic contact, but of interaction with others in general
