Thanks X. Good question (how do I express myself). I guess it depends on who I'm around. If I'm around strangers, I tend to feel shy and quiet. So, I guess my shyness and my quietness come across as bitchyness.
Kinda sounds strange to me at first but then I look back at other people that were the same way around me (as a stranger) and sometimes their shyness came across as bitchy to me too.
But I really think it has to do with sexes. Women are generally the ones to say I look bitchy. But maybe (unknowingly) I come across bitchy to them? I was raised with 6 boys - no girls. So, naturally I'm more confortable around men. I understand them a lot better than I do women.
