Yes, I'm aware that this will probably get laughed at/with but tbh I don't really mind.

Does anyone have any advice on how to sort it when you have the male version of a "*****y Resting Face", that thing where your face looks upset, angry, tired, drunk or all 4 at the same time, despite the fact you're just normally content, not ecstatic, not sad? This video might should explain it:

Even when my face is just normal at it's "Meh" level, I get people telling me to smile, cheer up, saying "It's not that bad!", or asking if I'm ill, why I'm tired or if I'm drunk. I didn't really mind before but this has got more and more frequent and it :O 's me off every time. I can't exactly walk around with a forced Cheshire cat grin all the time as that just looks creepy. I'm hardly going to have a massive grin absolutely all the time when I'm working or doing other mundane activities like "OMG YAY WAITING FOR THE KETTLE TO BOIL!!!"

Any advice?

I'm the same man, it sucks. I can't really offer any advice because I still have resting ***** face syndrome. I try to smile but it just looks fake and weird unless I'm actually smiling at something or laughing.

Some guy on my hockey team has this. I thought for ages he hated me but it turns out he just has one of those faces.

I don't really think you can do anything about it. Maybe try being extra friendly with new people so they don't think you hate them?

I think I have resting miserable face syndrome. There is nothing more annoying than being told to cheer up when I feel fine. Just **** off and leave me alone!

I'm the exact same, always getting told to smile/cheer up and it's so frustrating. I only really smile when I'm talking to someone - I'd find it strange to be sat smiling while doing work or whatever
