Most people reject me on sight. I suspect it's a combination of physical appearance (ugly), social status (dress like a bum), awkwardness (anxiety), and gender nonconformity. I'm quite used to expressions of disgust, distaste, or contempt on the faces of strangers, though, ofc, most seem largely indifferent. I don't recall offhand any positive reactions from people who don't know me.
I do go out of my way to be pleasant, friendly, and reassuring in my interactions, so I don't think it's my demeanor that puts people off (I'm never cold or rude and smile a lot), just my appearance. Over time, with enough interaction, some people lose that disgust and become indifferent; very rarely, they may become friendly.
Many people who have been forced to interact with me on a regular basis (fellow students, coworkers, roommates, etc.), and who have gotten to know me, have warmed up to me, so I've always been able to make friends eventually if given the right environment. I've never really been sexually attractive to anyone, though, which makes relationships a lot harder to find.
Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there.
