Won't Can't talk about my paycheck. No, seriously, like, we were told on new hire training that we really were not allowed to ._. seemed really weird since it's not like I make a lot of it -le shrug- or work for the mafia xD
Other than that I think I'll answer anything that people ask me. If it's a question I deem "embarrassing" I'll have a tough time getting the answer out since usually I'll be giggling like an idiot (I guess it's my way of adjusting? no idea), but can't think of a time when I didn't answer =|

I'm not approachable at all. People tend to ignore me unless they're asking for directions and there's no one else around. People I know don't approach me either unless they have nothing better to do or they need help with school work. To most people, I don't exist. I like being a ghost sometimes.

I have little sympathy for someone that asks a question and doesn't like the answer.

I'm very approachable but I guess people mistake me for being too serious when I put my glasses on and very intimidating because I'm quite muscular. Although I admit, I tend to be not so approachable against like a small group of people that annoys me. I also put my headphones all the time so that might be a big factor there lol.

^ The majority of Crunchyroll.

Thank you for your post.


You'd be surprised at the number of people outside of crunchyroll who feel the same way. Approachable = depends on the other person: how another person views you. Answering questions = independent of the other person: how comfortable you are. It's 2 completely different things.


I suppose I am unapproachable in the opposite way. A person cannot start a conversation with me with "I like your shirt" or "nice haircut" and expect me to not close up. What a happy accident that I look good today! Screw off. If one comes to me rudely, I smile and listen until I have the chance to speak. And I don't always speak afterwards, depending on what I have to say, but I do not close up.

I work full time, so a majority of my social interaction happens while I'm on the clock (becoming a larger majority since I joined these forums). I got so fed up with a new guy telling me "You're doing some real good work over there, keep it up," that I accidentally (in enough of a joking tone that I got away with it) replied "Nobody likes your empty compliments. You don't know what I do here." Thankfully I have a presence and history at my work, so it actually helped build the relationship for me to say this.

I also jokingly got called a "bitch" as an attempt to include me in some "fun shit-talk" by a different new guy. I went up to him and quietly said "Most people don't get away with calling me a bitch, so don't expect this to continue." I got made fun of by the other guys who said I didn't do anything about it, and I was fine with that. Altogether, this was the more fun and more approachable me.

Today, some of the younger guys approached me to try and have a conversation with me about drugs, as if I must do them. Offensive. My friends do drugs, I goof off. I managed to relay a couple stories after I established with these guys that I do not do any drugs besides alcohol, nicotine, and way less THC than them. They were being dumb, "talking about the wrong things in the warehouse," and I was able to tell them that too.

That being said, if you want to talk about the weather or the beauty of a sunset, I'm all in.

So am I approachable? I guess not by conventional standards, exactly.

lol i am super talkative and always friendly. I am pretty approachable and easy to make friends with. However, i tend to hold up inside my room studying japanese or watching anime, so i am almost never out and about.

I guess I'm fairly approachable. I mean, I have no problem talking about anything, though i'm much better with some topics than a lot of others. If that makes sense.

I'm probably very unapproachable. I usually look really mad; I'm almost never mad that's just how my "neutral face" is and I can't change it much. I don't smile much because I have kinda crooked teeth and tend to be self-conscious about it. I don't talk often because I'm just not good at socializing and never have much to say.
So yeah, most people just leave me alone.

I'm pretty chill really. You can ask me anything, but obviously if it's too personal, I'll just say pass. Or if you ask a really stupid question, I'll respond with a sarcastic answer.

Specifically speaking, I don't look that easy to talk to in general. When there's a question you ask me, all I can do is say simple things to answer your question. (Despite that I don't know who you are. No offence). But nevertheless, you can ask me anything you have in mind. As long as it's not personal or stupid. More likely, I wouldn't say a thing, and move on to what i'm doing.

IRL really just strike up a conversation and we're good. Online however I block anyone I don't recognize or get to know, though getting to know me better is kind of a drag/bore so people don't talk to me much.

Face to face, if I can talk with you for a few minutes, I'll answer most questions.

If we are both a bit drunk, it will take a few less minutes.

On a forum like this.... maybe, maybe not...

Depends on the questions.

Some people have ulterior motives and I'm a bit of a cynic....



How's that?

I'm afflicted with Resting Bitch Face, this means I look rude/unapproachable/stuck up and what have you. I'll answer questions if it's not uncalled for. People have asked me for directions before, or when the next bus is coming/if a certain bus stops at this stop etc. If questions are asked without malicious intent, I'll feel inclined to answer as long as it doesn't make me uncomfortable to divulge such information.
