Do I look hard faced?

Lovely people - I was told today (albeit, in a jokey way) that I look hard faced. I laughed it off but it hurt a bit - in the past I have been told I look like I mean business or generally look cold/miserable o.O Not sure if that's just my average look or not... but I'm not an iron maiden!! Would be interested to see if anyone else agrees though - this is my cover pic, it's the way my face is usually (i.e. when I'm not smiling my head off like a cheshire cat).
Do I look hard faced??

  • I think you look lovely. With that straight face you still look like a very kind woman. Just try to smile as much as possible, and don't let anyone tell you you look hard faced. Cause you really don't.

  • A bit of 'resting bitch face', with some strong facial features. I can see why people would say that. But I wouldn't take it to be a negative. You are very attractive, so it's not like it's going to scare men away. The thing that will help a lot is that even with just a small grin, like you have in your profile pic, your eyes totally light up. You can really see the smile come out through your eyes. So I think it will be a case where something like a one-off photo like you have above will read more 'stern' than you would actually appear in person, where those subtle eye and eyebrow motions will soften everything.

    Don't take it as a negative, a lot of people have a face that looks a little stern when at rest. It's not unusual. You look fabulous, no body is going to mind. It will only come up in joking situations.

    • Yeah I can see it too unfortunately :/ I'd hope it wouldn't scare anyone away lol! It just seems to be an involuntary mean look that comes naturally.. It seems making a bit more of an effort to smile is the way to go :) :) Thanks for your comments.. very sweet words :)

    • You're welcome. I don't think you need to make a very strong effort to smile more. Just be yourself. People that take the time to get to know you will see the smile in your eyes. No need to change to suit other people's misconceptions.

  • Might be a bit harsh. Everyone generally can have a part of themselves, where they're not composing themselves for the camera, where they chew on certain emotions, that project a slightly unwelcoming aspect of themselves. I generally find that people only do it because they're ultimately a bit insecure, or distrustful, or depressed, or hurt in some way, a bit fearful, self conscious, all those good emotions... but as I say, those are the same emotions everybody is chewing on to a greater or lesser degree. Those things don't phase me too much. I know I'm both light and shade. I expect the same in everybody else. In short, I think if I tickled you, I'd get a big smile from you...

    • Seriously? Wow. Kudos to you then :) I think when we're young and in our late teens we notoriously do not take care of our bodies... I know I never did, ate sporadically, drank excessively and smoked.. Physically and mentally we run ourselves into the ground I guess. I don't think people should dismiss anything that looks to be working so well :) I'll have a think about looking more into meditation then :) I find stress and anxiety impact a lot on my everyday life so the chance to unwind really could be helpful... Haha cool, I like your thinking there ;) save the martial arts for someone a little less incapable lol

    • Well, if you ever have any questions... And really? I thought you could batter anybody :P Certainly me, I'm deceptively gentle...

  • Naw you don't look hard-faced, but like you should be having my baby so i1127.photobucket.com/.../...m_MDY0NjQ3NTA3OTk.jpg

    But on a serious note you just jave a bad resting bitch face like me ^_^. You don't look mean or anything though

  • To me it just looks like you are focusing on something intensely, like paying attention or living in the moment. I do that too. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. To me it means you may be pretty perceptive. Like you're able to really focus on a topic without distraction (that's not bad imo). I wouldn't judge your character much without talking to you though.

    • Thanks for the comment.. :) nice to know it doesn't just automatically make everyone think I'm mean lol. I am quite focused/determined/headstrong so you got that right but it's a good attitude to not judge on appearance alone... :)

    • And knowing that you are focused/determined/headstrong, I don't see a need for you to walk around with a fake smile on your face that isn't sincere just to please what other people would like to see.

      Yeah I think your expression is cool though.

  • Just because you're not smiling doesn't mean you look "hard-faced." Your profile pic has a "softer" facial expression, but in any case you're a very attractive woman with a great figure.

  • If you were wearing one of your "I run shit" dresses, I could see how someone would think that.

    Other than that, I don't see it. Do you usually have a serious look on your face?

    • Lol what's a "I run shit" dress? Yeah I tend to have a serious look to me most of the time (except when I am smiling) but you can't have a grin on your face 24/7 can you? :/

    • Well there ya go. You don't have to look happy all the time, just try to loosen up the tension in the face, that's all.

      And a "I run shit" dress is what I call dresses that women wear who are in a position of power. Doesn't even have to be a dress, just anything that presents an image of authority.

      Usually looks something like this, or similar variations of it.

    • Cheers :) Haha! Oh I see what you mean now.. Yeah couple up some power dressing with a serious face and I could look pretty vindictive o. O

  • In the picture you appear to be in a serious mood. You are also pretty cute so if I was a random stranger walking by I would say something clever to put a smile on that cute face.

    • Yeah I suppose it is better than looking like a complete goofball that no one can take seriously lol

    • Hey, thanks for your comment :) Definitely, I look much more friendly and alive when I'm smiling, even just a bit. I wish I looked a little less imposing when I don't smile though... feel a bit self conscious about it now! :/ Glad it's subtle though and not too hard boiled...

    • yeah it's subtle. you don't look like a bitch or mean so i wouldn't be to self conscious about it.

      Stating previous opinions in your question may have made the answers bias. If you didn't say previous opinions I wonder if i would've though the same and may have thought nothing of it.

    • Glad I don't look mean or too much of an asshole! :)

    I don't know what they mean by hard-faced? You look kind of tough I guess, I think you could own me in a fight, but you have gentle features! You have a button nose and high cheekbones. You look like melted butter when you smile in your profile pic :P I wouldn't take that comment to heart!

  • It's because your not smiling in that pic. Some people seem upset/angry when they're not smiling. I've seen pics that were taken without me being aware of that and I noticed I looked grumpy, I mean, really xD lmao. I asked myself "damn, is this what I look like when I'm with my normal face?"

    • Yeah I know what you mean lol... it's just, if I'm concentrating or just looking serious, it comes across all wrong! :/ I'll have to make the effort to smile more so people remember I'm not an ax murderer :) Thanks for your comment! :)

    • Lol, I honestly think you don't need to worry. It's not like people would actually think you're a angry person or something. I doubt anyone has given up of be friends/approach you because of that, probably these thoughts you have of you being "hard faced" not even cross their minds.
      And you're welcome (:

  • Lol. Depends with pic you take. On your avatar pic, you don't look hard at all, you have a very sweety smile. But on your other profile pic, you look very serious even a little tpuch of a killer look ;-) So it depends which of the two you use the most. You can exercise improving the first one (although the second teases me also little bit ;-) )
