Do family and friends ask you what's wrong on a regular basis? Do strangers tell you to "smile" or "cheer up" when you're actually in a great mood? Like so many other women, you may be suffering from Bitchy Resting Face.
Ladies, you are not alone. Bitchy Resting Face, or bitchface as I like to call it, is something I've lived with since adolescence. Nine times out of ten, my sourpuss expression isn't intentional. It's just how I look when I'm not sporting a cheese-tastic grin. If I'm not smiling in a particular moment, it doesn't mean I'm miserable or pissed off. It doesn't mean I'm a bitch either.
I can't tell you how many times I've heard, "I thought you were a bitch when I first met you." Well, excuse the hell out of me for not being Buddy the Elf 24-7! For those of you who don't suffer from Bitchy Resting Face, I'm going to give you a piece of advice. It's never ok to judge a woman by the salty expression on her face unless you are 100% certain she's actually salty about something. It's like asking a woman when her baby's due and she responds with, "I'm not pregnant." Bitchy Resting Face will quickly become I'm For Real About To Cut A Bitch Face.
Disclaimer: Bitchy Resting Face should never be confused with ANY of the following:
Bitchy Resting Face effects millions of women around the world, including celebrities.
And we can't forget the queen, Victoria Beckham.
I've chosen to embrace my BRF as a way of life.
Because really, there's no better way to ward off unwanted creeps.
