Flat affect makes anything I say uninteresting

It’s annoying. I will be telling someone an interesting story of what has happened in my past, and since I have flat affect, they just stare at me with a vacant expression, then they go on to tell a story of their life, as if their life is more important than mine. Just because they have affect? It’s just simply unfair.

Yes, I hate my flat affect also. It really has a negative effect on interpersonal relationships.

Yeah flat affect is a problem for me also

You can have flat affect and still be interesting and funny.

hmm… I appreciate what you’re going for… But tell that to my relatives that don’t laugh at any of my jokes.
