>>25963790 In a way it's kinda good. I'm not a total robot, but pretty much every time I meet someone new they say something like "I'm really surprised you're pretty pleasant to talk to, when I first saw you I thought you're gonna be aggresive". Or when I'm just standing around minding my own bussiness someone I know comes to me and says "Hey, stop frowning" or "Hey, why are you angry?". Even when I'm neutral.
>>25963879 Where do you live anon? In my country people don't seem as friendly and they just straight up avoid me. Very hard to make friends if everyone doesn't feel like talking to you on their own accord.
>>25963924 Czech Republic, a country which is stereotyped by the foreigners to be full of people who always look unwelcoming and angry. And even here, I look exceptionally unwelcoming, so that should tell you something. I think it's more common in post-soviet countries to be like this. Where are you from?
>>25963959 I don't know anon. I'm from Poland and people here don't seem friendly at all. And that's kind of a general thing for people here. I'd say we're about as closed off as Fins are. I'm pretty surprised Czech Republic is different in that regard.
>>25964021 I think it's pretty similar actually. The people I know, who talk to me, that's always from my initiative. But when I do try to strike up a conversation, they get caught off guard by me not trying to punch them in the face(or whatever they picture me doing to them) so it's pretty easy to talk to them even with the most basic social skills.
So no, people aren't friendly unless I go out of my way to actively convince them I'm not gonna clobber them to death. Actually it's common when using public transport that people(women especially) would rather stand for 40 minutes than sit next to me(and before you ask, I shower at least once a day, wear clean clothes, take care of myself, etc).
But it works in general too. For example on a train platform people would try to stand as far away from each other as they can. When in a tram, people always try to sit as sparsely as possible. I guess it's just our national habit. It is very surprising given our high population density, well not population density but the high number of rather small settlements(hundreds of people). One would think that people would be used to each other, but it's quite the contrary.
>>25964119 To be fair there was this one girl who thought I'm a fucking creep (literally heard her say that), but when she was forced to work with me in a pair one time, she realized I'm a pretty decent guy who doesn't want to murder her violently. The transformation of her staying as far away from me to her actually getting closer to me and liking me was weird as fuck.
>>25964273 Yeah it always is, it kinda makes me bitter. It's easy to make people talk to you, but knowing they hated you just minutes ago for things you can't change makes me want to not be around people at all.
>>25964478 >but knowing they hated you just minutes ago for things you can't change makes me want to not be around people at all. Yeah. To finish the story with the girl, I kinda liked her but I just couldn't get over remembering her words back then. I just couldn't pretend nothing happened. Hence I never really tried to make it into anything more than acquaintance-level relations with her.
>>25963640 I don't got the eyes but I got the eyebrows that do the same. A random girl on Chaturbate told me that they reminded her of classic film villain eyebrows. Like she could imagine me having a handlebar moustache and stove pipe hat, rubbing my hands as I plot something. >>25963730 I have this problem too.
>>25964538 Yeah similar thing happened to me couple of times too. What's worse, thanks to this people assume I'm dumb. I guess the stereotype of neanderthal eyebrows does kinda make sense. But see, I'm a programmer and I work for a company that makes CNC machines, once we were installing a machine to a customer. And this customer was a real cunt with big mouth. He openly said "Is THIS GUY really the programmer? He looks like he can't even count to five."
That pissed me off, because in my field appearances are kinda important. And everyone thinking you're a knuckle-dragging retard would hurt your chances I'd imagine.
