Does anyone else get this? I'm new to the board so I haven't read through all of the topics(working on it haha).

People always ask me this and I just don't know what to say. My no expression face is what it is and I feel like people think I'm always angry at them and that is a reason nobody talks to me.

Sound like a serve case of "resting b*tch face" ;););)
It happens to me a lot as well, especially because i need glasses and without I'm always frowning. So it looks as if I'm frowning upon people or am constantly disgusted. it's just the face and you can't always smile.

I gotta be honest - I'm kind of disgusted that people SAY that to you. Lol To anyone. Is smiling pleasant? Sure. But do you have an obligation to smile all the time? Nope. I have probably been guilty of saying that to my husband, but it's essentially a selfish question - why is your face not the way I expect it to be? ;) Maybe just a pet peeve of mine...anyways welcome to the forum, whether you look happy or not! Your 'mad face' is welcome, in my opinion.
