I run into this problem all the time. I recently started a new job and i've been there for a week, it's fun but i think i've said 4words within that week, why? because i'm shy and my voice is weird. I thought it was my anxieties making me think that everyone was wathing and judging me but no it's real. Today i was at work and someone yelled a question towards me from across a crowded room of my co workers, usually i would be close to the person talking to me and i'd be able to whisper a answer or nod my head "yes" but this time i had to ask a question back, and i swear on my life the moment i opened my mouth EVERYONE in the room turned and looked at me when i started talking.........I'm extremely self conscious about it and now i know that it's not in my head. I can joke around now and say that i sound like a transsexual, Like a guy that had a sex change and he's trying to talk like a girl....... When i go to work I dressed horrible, don't fix my hair or anything so i look kind of "rough" and then my voice sounds like i'm joking or something i dunno.

I need to know that i'm not the only person that deals with this :p

Well, I have been told I have a mature, confident and womanly sounding voice - which doesn't match my appearance considering I look younger than my actual age, and I can be painfully shy in real life sometimes.

Maybe because you are normally so quiet and shy, that when you did finally speak up enough for others to hear you, they turned around because they are just not used to your voice. We all have different voices, some days I think I sound like I am whiney, other days, I sound maybe husky/womanly. The more you speak out loud, even if you do it at home, maybe less you will feel self conscious.
I would record my voice on Vocaroo for you to hear, but I am too lazy right now.

It has come to my attention of the years, NO ONE sounds the way they THINK they sound. All you have to do to prove that is just record their voice and play it back to them.

As for sounding the way I look... no idea, not sure what a bearded 22 year old male with irish/german heritage is suppose to sound like. Maybe sad? College debt and all being the way it is.

But, I am also confident in myself and not really all that shy, I also don't care too much what others think of me. So even if my voice sounded weird I don't care, but I am told I sound like my old man... me and him still don't know what people are talking about.

The only time someone has commented on the way I sound was in my 10th grade English class. On the first day of school, my teacher told me that I have a deep voice for a girl.
It never bothered me though, I just have never paid much attention to the way I sound. And I'm not sure if my voice matches the way I look.

lol no. I'd say my aesthetics look very innocent and feminine, but my voice is deep. I always wonder if people are surprised when hearing my voice for the first time because I know I would. And don't worry about what other people think, I've been called man voice before but you just have to ignore them. They don't matter.

I sound like a small child, so I know what it's like. I once had a telemarketer call the police because they thought I was a child that had been left home alone. It took me twenty minutes to convince the police officers that no children lived with me. Also back when I was in college and working retail it was terrible whenever a customer would call with a problem. They would not take me seriously because they thought I was much younger than I was. I even had one customer rudely ask "how can a ten year old be working".

Whatever weird assumptions people make about you really don't matter. People develop random opinions about everything. In the end, if they get to the conclusion that you must be a transsexual because of your voice they'll also think you're a damn good one (if that is you in your icon). Even if you do have to dress down for work your features are very feminine and they'd have to make a pretty big leap to get to that. I understand being self-conscious about little quirks about yourself though.

My voice matches me pretty well. I have a rounder, softer face that has features in the cute range. My voice is high pitch and girly, also in the cute range. Lulu from LoL cute.

Everyone tells me I sound "white." For the most part I think I sound normal and I also speak with a very low person not cause I am shy or anything but I just don't wanna sound like a screaming.

This.
I didn't know I had such a terrible voice till I did this myself.
It does match my terrible looks tho, so I approve of it.

This is what the Mysterious Phersu sounds like. I've been told I have a soft voice, so I often need to speak louder. Who knows? I think it sounds fine. A bit harsh since I'm not using a quality microphone. Also, that noise in the background is Toonami.

Odd question. I don't really know if I sound how I look. I suppose I do. But no-one's ever said anything about it. I generally look mildly irritated, bored and slightly angry.
