They’re not angry! That’s just how they look.
Have you ever been told that you always look angry or that you’re a little intimidating to strangers? Well, you might just have RBF — better known as “Resting Bitch Face”.
Sure, it sounds awful, right? But it’s TOTALLY real.
Typically, if you have a serious case of RBF, you also tend to be that type of person that just doesn’t smile all that often. Your face naturally has what some might call a scowl, or a look of displeasure.
And you know what? That’s totally fine. You definitely DON’T have to put on a smile 24/7. In fact, it’s totally unreal and slightly creepy to smile all the time, amirite?
And if one day, you happen to be walking down the street and a random dude tells you to smile, by all means, continue walking. Maybe with a middle finger high in the air.
But, admittedly, having a bitch face probably scares away more people than you’d like. You probably get told all the time by your friends and family that you look totally unapproachable because of the face you’re making.
People NEVER cut you any slack because you just happen to always look pissed off. But what can you do? And WHY exactly do you have RBF?
Well surprisingly, if you look to astrology and to your horoscope, it actually could shed a little light on what it is about your personality that makes you feel so, well, serious all the time. Maybe it’s just written in the stars that you, more so than the rest of the zodiac signs, are one of those people who just takes life more seriously than the rest. Or that you tend to remain unimpressed with a lot of what everyone else would find entertaining.
Or you know what? Maybe you’re just straight sassy — ALL the time. No harm in that either.
Whatever the reason, looking to your zodiac sign can give you some insight on why you look so intimidating to other people. Some of us LOVE to smile and are always chipper, but you know what? Others of us are a little less cheery. In fact, these particular signs might look like they’re in the mood to punch someone, but really … it’s just their face. They are used to taking things so seriously all the time, it’s how they carry themselves.
If you want to find out which zodiac signs have a serious case of resting b*tch face, read on.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is always in a rush. She hardly has any time to stop and smell the flowers. That’s why she has a terrible case of RBF.
She takes life way too seriously to walk around looking happy ALL the time. She strides on with her sassy-slash-serious face, and people just can’t help but be intimidated by her.
Aries, in reality is extremely impatient, and she always looks like she’s in a rush. No one has the guts to stop her on the street because she definitely doesn’t look like she has the time to speak to you.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini sometimes gets into moods where she’s super serious, so when she’s in that particularly thoughtful or solemn mood, she looks totally unapproachable. She’s not even paying attention to the people around her.
Sometimes, Gemini just wants to be left ALONE and nothing says it more than her face. She’s just being honest… without having to say a word.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn is straight up intimidating. She rarely ever puts on a front or pretends to be happy just to put others at ease.
When she’s mad, sad, upset, or just plain moody, she will have a facial expression that screams, “DON’T BOTHER ME.” When people see her walking around looking super serious, they’ll immediately know put their guard up with her around.
Either that or try to make her smile, but asking her to do that — especially if you don’t KNOW her — is an AWFUL idea. Trust.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is sweet and friendly when she’s around her friends, but when she’s alone minding her own business, more often than not, she can fool you into thinking she’s pissed at you.
When she’s tired or not in the mood to deal with people, her face will look naturally unhappy. There’s nothing actually wrong with her – she just doesn’t have the energy to go out of her way to look super happy. She’s a naturally solemn person, so smiling and being cheery is pretty much the opposite of what she’s comfortable with.
As a result, she looks totally unapproachable. She’s not unfriendly or anything; that’s just how she looks.
