Hello lovelies, I’ve got an OOTD for you today!
Let me tell you a little about myself. You can call it a blessing or a curse, but I was one of those people that was given resting nice face instead of resting bitch face.
I guess it’s pretty advantageous to look like a nice person, but I’m here to say that it’s not that fun all the time.

You see, the thing is, having a nice face means it’s a little easier to talk yourself out of situations. It’s a little easier to convince people to do things for you. And it’s a little easier to look more innocent because people will probably never suspect you as the troublemaker, haha.
But the problem arises when they think a nice face translates to a literal nice person.
I will say that I would describe myself as a nice person. But everyone has their limits. Everyone has buttons that get pushed from time to time and I think it’s unfair that people assume a person with a nice face will never get mad. Just like how people with a resting bitch face supposedly look like they hate everyone when they’re not smiling.

However, the thing that annoys me the most is that people think that because I look like a nice person, I’m approachable all the time.
The truth is, a lot of the time, I’m not in the mood to interact with people. I’m very much an introvert who is selectively extroverted and I’m usually stressed about schoolwork if I’m on campus. I do have my good days where I’ll strike up a conversation with strangers at the register or at an appointment, but it doesn’t happen very often.
Most of the time though, I’ll get asked for directions or a complete stranger will randomly walk up to me to have a conversation.
Recently, I was sitting at a table at school and a random guy sat down on the same side as me, started talking about his homework, his lunch, and his quiz. Then he said that he should probably go to class and went on his way, leaving me utterly confused (by the way, I definitely did not know this guy, and I wasn’t responding to him, but he continued talking until he left). It’s the weirdest thing, and I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I look nice. I still can’t wrap my head around these encounters, and they throw me off every time.

And if my face doesn’t look “nice” that day, I don’t look bitchy. Nope; instead people will ask me if I’m sad or tired, and that frustrates me too. I’ve tried looking “less nice” with hoop earrings, darker lipstick, or trying on outfits that aren’t “cute,”but nothing works. *sigh*
Now, I get it. I should be grateful that I look nice instead of mean and bitchy. All those people with RBF are just as misunderstood. But hey, at least you don’t get random people coming up to you all the time for directions, to sell you things since you look nice, or to flirt with you because you look so approachable. Like no, I am not Google Maps, or an easily swayed consumer (okay well sometimes I am but still), or someone who wants to go out with a stranger I just met on the street (unless you’re actually a genuine and charming guy, but that’s pretty rare so yeah, still a no from me).
Top – Choies
So when I saw this shirt, I knew I had to have it. It probably won’t do much in repelling people, but at least I’m trying, right?
Jeans – American Apparel
What I’m trying to say is that when you’re an introvert, an RBF is probably way better than a RNF.
On top of that, I probably won’t be able to tell you where something is because I’m directionally challenged, I don’t want to buy what you’re selling, and I probably won’t give you my number as I trip over my words and stutter because you surprised me when you approached me.
So just know, if you’re thinking of talking to me, don’t, because I hate you 2.
Juuuust kidding! I don’t hate people, but I hope this post makes sense! I really do struggle on an everyday basis with people coming up to me just because I have a “nice face,” and it annoys me sometimes. I really do wish I had an RBF, haha.
Does anyone else relate to this? Let me know in the comments so we can complain about the perils of looking like a nice person together, haha!
And I hope you like this OOTD; I thought this shirt was so fitting for me since I wish there was a way to repel people sometimes and I like how it’s an unexpected message from a plain shirt. Anyways, thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you lovelies next week!
