A Bad Case of Bitch Face

I can't help it!  When I'm not engaged or I'm lost in thought I get this really nasty bitch face.  But it's not my fault.  It's just the way my face is.  My entire life has been plagued by statements like, "smile" "you're so serious" "is everything ok?" "what's wrong?"  "are you upset?" I mean what am I supposed to do walk around with a crazy plastered smile on my face? I can't help it that my face is serious looking.

Do you have this problem?  Are you unjustly discriminated against because of your bitch face? Maybe we should start a support group.

I HAVE actually been told that I'm too serious before. I never thought of it this way, though. Maybe people expect to see something that is just not there in real life. I don't think most people walk around smiling all the time. Then again, maybe I just need to join your support group. Have a good day!

I get that all the time, too! I'd sit beside someone I didn't know in class in high school, and halfway through the semester, they would always say to me, "No offense but I thought you were a bitch until I got to know you." I have no idea how to get around it, either!

If I am not actually smiling my lips form a natural frown. I am always furrowing my brows too usually if I am concentrating or thinking. So the answer to your question is yes "Bitch face" is my normal expression unfortunately and I will need botox on my forehead soon!!

Yes, everybody is all "OMG WHAT IS WRONG?!!!!" and I'm like "huh? what are you talking about?" I can't help it!

Oh my gosh, yes! My friends have a joke, "is something wrong?" "No, it's just my face." I'm always thinking and solving the world's problems, and they're tough, so I have to wear my serious, thinking face!
