    Default Eyes

    Do your eyes actually actually tell an attacker to be wary of you? do you have a look that tells those bent on ill intend to step aside and let you on by.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Some have told me I look like a biker. Mom's kind of look funny at me but the kids see right through it and wave and smile.

    Ive been told that when my store manager first saw me that he found me "intimidating." Im sure everyone else played that up!

    It would be a couple months before we actually worked together and he could get a proper opinion LOL

    I don't think My eyes convey intimidating vibe. Although my eyes do get a lot of attention. I swear I get asked if I'm wearing colored contacts at least 2 or 3 times a week. I guess thats the downfall of having green eyes

    From your photo it looks like you have very nice eyes. I wouldn't choose scary at all

    I suppose it is subject to whomever is observing me. However, my friends have said that I do have one of the best "Eat S***" looks on the planet though. LOL.

    Everybody at the studio says that I squink my eyes before doing everything. I guess I got that one from Mr. Joe, he always watches himself in the mirror and squints while doing anything.

    I believe there is some truth to this. Most criminals look to prey on those who appear weak, distracted or unattentative. This is the nature of the animal kingdom. People who are alert to their surroundings and carry themselves well are less likely a target. Your eyes and body posture say a lot.

    No, Tess... your just scary... period....

    ....course... most of us probibly consider that a good thing...

    ... I know I do...
    Missed ya..


    Most people who know me for while eventualy joke about thinking I was intimidating when they first met me but then they find out I am a big teddy bear.... course.. that could have something to do with the black ankle length trench, black gloves, combat boots, lots of dark earth tone clothing and that I am about 6'1... 6'2 in boots... and wear a size 52 suit.

    Then to really confuse them... I let it out that I used to study ballet.

    It works for me as a school teacher, especially when they see the Kenpo patch/insignia on my clothing.

    I tend to look every one I pass in the eyes, maybe that can be taken by some as a warning but that’s not the signal I am intending to send.


    On a side note, I was told by my drill instructor in boot camp that I looked at him like I was ready to nap his neck. Maybe that’s why he rode me so hard ??

    I think confidence and eye contact help to rule you out as a victim. No one has ever told me I was intimidating though. I guess I smile to much

    I guess it depends on my mood. Most of the time people fail to notice me at all. When I get upset, people generally chose to leave the area. I have bben told that my eyes literally change color with my mood. My wife says that she can always tell how upset I am by looking at my eye color. Thankfully, I don't get mad very much.

    Other than being aware, why would you want to walk around looking like that?
