D5100 will not focus!

Hi I have read some of the other threads and I am just at a loss. Help! I am taking portraits with the D5100 and a 35mm (which you know acts like a 50mm on this camera). I focus on the eyes and it looks in focus and it's not. The teeth are in focus, the chin, the neck. I have the center focus thing selected. Or the hair is in focus. I open the ap, i close the ap, i dial down the ISO, I raise it. i switch to P or auto to idiot proof it, and nope. I'm still an idiot with out of focus photos. I am ready to throw this camera out the window. Can someone please tll me how to fix it. OR what camera to switch to? What's the next logical step up from something like a 5100?

OH! also, like that other thread mentioned, all of a sudden, everything is looking super hazy. I need to fix my problem. Can anyone help?

neck's in focus instead of eyes

dreads in focus not face

shirt color in focus not eyes

Nikon D5100
