I get the exact same thing as you. Just because my eyes aren't emerald green doesn't mean they aren't green. Forest green still counts.
Also, my eyes appear brown in picture but blue in video, and I've gotten Facebook comments such as, "Your brown eyes are so pretty!" and while I'm thankful for the compliment I'm still like hargleblarg my eyes are green, not brown.
I was on a train with a girl I know and she said my eyes were hazel, I corrected her and was like 'no they're brown'. Then she started arguing with me over my eye colour lmao, like I think I should know, ITS NOT LIKE THEY'VE BEEN IN MY HEAD FOR THE PAST 19 YEARS OR ANYTHING! That's the only time its ever happened, she was dumb for sure lol
I usually get people thinking they're blue, if they even take a guess at all. It doesn't bother me. They're green, but it's an easy mistake to make, considering I wear glasses every waking hour and some people may not be able to see my eye color clearly unless they're right up in my face. =P
My eyes are a bit tricky! Mostly they are dark blue, but sometimes they turn into light green...which is a bit odd... It happens when I cry, or when it's cloudy outside /raining.../.
People usually always see the dark blue color, since it's what they're used to, but when I meet someone new with green eyes haha, they get freaked out when they see me the second time and see that then I've got blue eyes. x)
