What makes someone ‘look’ unapproachable?


This is a personal question based on your SA.

Serious/grumpy face

Idk just people that give off a bad attitude. That make it feel like you approaching them is wasting their time.

True. I have a naturally grumpy face and people usually avoid me, and I notice it is mainly because of my grumpy face. But it is more like a first impression, though.

Yes - the thought of having the third eye - either on the forehead or a backup in case one falls out....would do the trick


Nah, seriously - an angry face. Preoccupation does wonders to the countenance.

It will take more than anxiety to explain my unapproachable-ness.
























On a cold winter's night in 19-whoopsie-daisies, it is where it all began...

Scowling. Not giving eye contact. Walking in a hurry. Seeming very preoccupied.

F, I think you just described my existence. Except for the scowling, which is mainly just how my face looks

I hope i don’t look miserable or anything.
I might have spotted another person in the shop with SA because i was walking down the the aisle and suddenly this woman came round the corner and brushed the side of the shelf with her shoulder and then said sorry even though she wasnt that close to me.

And i do the same exact thing!

Non outgoing facial cues, expression and body language. Not being opened about yourself but making others open up more on the their end, being too aggressively opinionated than what others called for, being rude and insensitive without knowing, and these things leading to social awkwardness.

^This is a good self-reflection.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
