“Are you okay?”
“Are you mad?”
Yes, I cannot count how many times I get asked this on the daily. I am minding my own business, and the world still has to mind mine and just ruin my already good mood. I get it, you’re concerned about my face but the constant minding gets old. Everyone seems to like a girl who’s always in a good mood with a smile plastered on their face making this world a happy place! But this is me. I am sure you know some girls who have the RBF and even some guys too.
Here are the struggles of a girl with an RBF:
1. Guys don’t approach
We give off that vibe sending guys going to the opposite direction. I am sorry, my face is like that but I really want you to say hi to me. I could be shy too. Because I have an RBF, a guy may think I will shut him down or I am too full of myself that they’re already turned off just looking at my mug. Listen up, deep down that cold exterior, there’s a girl who has a lot of love to give. Give her a chance. You never know she could be the girl of your dreams, the mother of your future children!
2. I look intimidating
Trust me, I am a friendly person. My face just doesn’t cooperate. Say hi to me, I don't bite! We could be best friends at the end.
3. Why so serious?
I am a fun girl. I am not boring. My face looks like this but I can make you smile and give you some of the best times of your life.
4. Mean girl
Just because my face looks mean but I am no mean girl. In fact, I am goofy to my friends and I am loyal to my family.
5. Do not tell me to smile
Please don’t. It's rude! I will smile when I feel like it. When you see me smile, it’s genuine. That means you really made me happy and made my day.
I could be at my happiest; my face will look the same. Just don’t ruin it by asking me if I am mad? Then... I become moody lol.
I could be thinking what to make for dinner tonight or where I left my lipstick at because it’s gone missing. Then someone goes what’s wrong with you?
One of the worst things people describe girls with an RBF. A smiling girl doesn’t necessarily mean she’s a ray of sunshine. She could be silently plotting your death for all we know.
9. Zoning out
Life gets crazy busy, it feels good to zone out the noise and bs and just escape to your happy place at least in your head… When I zone out, I travel to a place where no one judges my face. But again, people looking at me thinking is something wrong with her?
10. People talking behind my back
What else is new? I could be reading something online or writing an important email to the boss, people around me start wondering and asking each other why is she so quiet.
I know people around me are just being nice and have my best interest at heart but it gets annoying. This is how I am and my face will always look like this. I do smile when I am happy. If you truly know me, you’d understand that I am not perpetually moody. Before you judge me, maybe you should get to know me first. After all, don’t always judge a book by its cover. You never know what beautiful story lies ahead once you open past the hard plain cover.
Cheers to the beautiful girls/guys with a resting bitch face and to those who don’t!
Thanks for the time reading.
