People with social anxiety disorder (SAD) are often mistaken for being aloof or disinterested.

If you struggle to meet new people or join in conversation at social gatherings, it might be that your body language is sending the message for others to stay away.

It might be that they seem tough as nails on the outside, but still cry during that one part in , or that their assertive personality makes them seem pushy and abrasive instead of the sweetheart they actually are.

Of course, there are some people who can be the exact opposite, but these 4 zodiac signs, in particular, will shock you with how different their personality seems at first to how it really is.

If he can’t handle you before you even utter a word, then Lord knows he won’t be able to give you what you need in a relationship. Everyone gives off vibes, and when your vibe is negative it can easily be sensed by others.

But the problem is that there's nothing in my response that connects me to the other person as a fellow human. If you suffer with severe anxiety it might feel overwhelming to try out these strategies to appear more approachable.Although it will feel unnatural at first, with time you might start to feel more open and confident as a result of changing your body language.It's funny how often, when I'm sitting on the subway and I catch the person across looking at me, I think (sometimes only for a moment) that the person is judging me. More probably, he just happens to be looking at me because ... He has no strong opinion about me, but just happens to have an intimidating face. There are ways you can dress, stand, move and act that can "soften" you. (It's a mistake if my goal is to come across as approachable.) See if you can spot it. I will confess right here that I don't always want to have anything other than a transactional interaction with strangers, so I don't think I did anything wrong in the above example.
