QUESTION: My face isn't naturally expressive, so I tend to look emotionally flat, though I do have emotions. I don't care very much, but I lot of people have told me I give off a serial killer vibe. I tried consciously putting on the facial expressions for the emotions I feel, but they are as forced as they look. It's really keeping me from making friends or dating people. Any other guys have this problem?

  2. I have the same exact thing. I can't remember when I last showed or felt any kind of emotion other than. Anger or hate. It's even gotten to the point where I'm faking every day interactions and it's tiring me out. Like shit I don't give a cap about how you're doing or how the weather is.

    2. I'm not sure if the autistic diagnosis applies here, but you sound a lot like my friend when she was describing her depression. It's really nothing to be ashamed of. It might help you to talk to a doctor or a therapist.

      This might help:

    3. Ah see I'm different, even when I feel happy my face doesn't show it unless I'm actually laughing at something funny that happens, pretty much the only time I smile naturally is when I'm laughing

  4. I usually put on a hard exterior so people can't read me, but it sucks for meeting people. Once I am in a relationship I will open up, but getting there can be hard.

  6. I had this problem when I was younger, but I practiced emoting and now it feels much more natural. Anyway the first step is being aware of it. Keep trying. Also don't only consider the face; a lot of emotion is demonstrated through body language, like the crossing of arms.
