I haven’t met a single person not familiar with the concept of the Resting Bitch Face. It’s all over our newsfeed, twitter, and countless of other social media platforms. If I had a dollar every time I saw a picture of a girl’s Bitchy Resting Face, I’de be a millionaire.
The Urban Dictionary defines the look as “The bitchy alternative to the usual blank look most people have.”
Chances are, you’ve already seen it walking down the street looking like this:
Ironically, the look isn’t even sexist. Men have it too:
Personally, there have been countless of times I wish I could pull off this look. Unfortunately, there are those like me who suffer from the complete opposite. And it’s screwing you over, and over again…
The Resting Nice Face.
This is an usolicited, welcoming expression that a person carries at all times regardless of their current emotions.
Sadly, it’s real. And it’s completely working against you.
Don’t believe me? Here are six scenarios that will change your mind:
1. People feel comfortable sharing personal details with you
Ever have someone, you met for the very first time approach you and share something very (and I mean very) personal with you?
If you did – well, join the club.
Sitting at a dinner table at one of my friend’s wedding anniversary, I was approached by a girl only two years older than me.Half an hour into the conversation, she already confessed to being on drugs from a very early age as well as personal details about her family and friends….two hours later.
The resting nice face allows people to feel comfortable with you and share things about their life without you even asking for it. They think you don’t judge when on the inside, all you want to say is:
2. You get approached ALL THE TIME
To say my coordination skills are slim to non-existent would be one hell of an understatement. So imagine my surprise when random people ask me for directions, when most of the time I have no clue where I’m going myself. The Resting Nice Face gives off a more than welcoming vibe to people, making it easy for them to approach you.
3. What’s Wrong?
On the off chance that your Resting Nice Face turns sad, everyone (and I mean EVERYONE ) wants to know what’s wrong. Seriously, who invented the phrase Are you okay?
4. You’d think I’d really care…
5. Your hairdresser will experiment on you
Sorry to break it to you, but your resting nice face allows others to think they can walk all over you…
The worst person to do so, is without a doubt your hairdresser. And you wonder why you come out looking like this..
6. Are you invisible?
I’ve come to terms with the fact that, if you look like a good person, some people just don’t think you’re important enough to talk to.
So, if you think the Bitchy Resting Face is bad, think again..
