In the military its a good thing to have. Which is why I think i have it. However all of my civilian friends who know me say i have resting ass hole face. In other words I could be in a good mood jist talking to someone but i still look angry and well... like an ass. I think its why people on the civilian side are so reluctant to talk to me. Any suggestions?

I "suffer" from resting bitch face, so I know what you mean.
When I'm talking to people, I have to mentally tell myself to smile, even if it's small, just so that people have that visual cue that it's okay to approach me or to keep talking to me. I've been told, by I can't even count how many people, that I look angry, so because of that, I'm always conscious if my facial expression matches what I'm feeling.
Like you said, I could be in a good mood, even happy, but my natural face reads annoyed, bored, and angry. So, the best suggestion I have is what I said above... be conscious that your face isn't necessarily reflecting what you're feeling, and slap a smile on your face (not a creepy or unnaturally big one though), make some eye contact, too.
I'm still working on it myself.0
