I get this remark all the time when I'm trying to upload good profile pics for dating sites. I ask people before I upload and most of them say I look like I'm about to murder someone. I really don't see it though but it must be true as the results show something's wrong. I try tons of different ways and they always say something's wrong like your smile looks fake and such.

I think this is an aspie thing?

According to one of those graphology books, my mom has the handwriting of a serial killer. She thought it was hilarious. :)

You shouldn't put so much stock into what random people say. I mean you can't just 100% believe every single thing people say to you, take it with a grain of salt. There is no specific 'look' for a serial killer if you would have taken the time to consider that....you may have seen their statement can't be accurate. Either it was meant in jest, like they were joking around or it was just a jerk comment.

Did the interaction seem friendly or did you feel like you were getting picked on? And how did they see your passport picture from 2009?

One of the most infamous serial killers was described as being attractive, clean cut and charming. I don't think hair-length really indicates whether or not a person is a serial killer.

There's an Australian game show where one of the segments is called "Musician or serial killer?"
They're shown pictures of people and have to decide which 'career' they think they have.
It confirms that more often than not, people can't tell what a serial killer looks like.
Of course, they may be a musician and a serial killer...

Oh, no! I just realised...

In addition to being able to tick just about every box in Skilpadde's list...

...when I used to go out to (try to emulate very badly) socialising in my teens and twenties...

...I sometimes overdid it and would end up having a melt-down in the pub/club...

...which, if I could possibly get away, meant running out into the night (I was a bit of a flight risk as a kid, too)...

...I would often come out of the melt-down miles away, usually out in the countryside, or in a park or churchyard...

..WITH NO IDEA HOW I GOT THERE OR WHAT HAD HAPPENED IN THE MEAN-TIME!! ! 8O 8O

Mind you, I do like watching the moon and I'm naturally rather nocturnal, so possibly I'm something really cool like a were-wolf or a vampire? :skull: :lol:

Vampires identify themselves on this site with red user names in their profile.

I met a vampire today in the GP surgery , she was taking blood from my GF for a blood test and my GF remarked how cold her hands were. I said 'cold hands', 'blood letting' , you are a vampire aren't you ? she turned and looked at me and said "at least I'm doing it in a safe and non dangerous way" - I was speechless :lol:

I don't know if they have the same rules where you live, but in Canadian passport photos you are not allowed to smile. Something to do with how smiling changes the shape of your face and can make you harder to recognize. So it's a common thing to look angry or "off" in the photos because when the photo is taken you are trying not to smile and it can make your face look a bit strange. When I got my photos taken for my passport I said the same thing about myself (that I looked like an axe-murderer or something) because of the non-smiling weird expression on my face.
