QUESTION: How can you make yourself less intimidating? I've had friends say to me that I look scary if a person doesn't know me (like a serious, strict kind of person). Honestly I'm probably one of the silliest dudes around (also evidenced by my friends). It's funny, sometimes, if I go to ask someone a question, they'll have this scared look on their face and as soon as I start talking they'll smile as if relieved and will warm up to me quite quickly. I've also noticed that girls in particular seem to be afraid of me but again as soon as I talk to them they exhibit the same aforementioned behavior.

Anyone else have the same experience?

Btw. I'm a brown dude

  1. Now. Let's look at the main issue here.... what the hell does you being brown have to do with you thinking you look intimidating?!

    We need to stop racial profiling others and ourselves in this context if we want to stop racism... it's like this information is ultimately important to this problem

    I'm not being rude. I just don't care what your skin colour is, seriously.

  4. Do you also have a thick beard and wear a turban? That could be a contributing factor.

  5. I have a similar problem hahahha. I'm a nice girl but I've been told that I'm unapproachable because I have a resting bitch face when in reality I'm just super zoned out.

  6. I'm a sadist so I don't care what you look like. I'll say hello to anyone, and be friendly.

  7. You should see my drivers license picture, I have had bouncers be like "who did you kill the day of this picture" If I am ever a suspect for a murder, and that photo gets put on TV, everyone will just assume I did it.

  8. Nah, being brown could be relevant though. I mean, I feel like I'm automatically a bit scarier just with darker skin.

    Advice: just try to smile naturally, think happy or funny thoughts to do so otherwise it might turn creepy. I usually do this when approaching people cause I have the same problem.

    Or, I don't and I exult inwardly while they cower in fear.
