The reason that Wisdom is personified as a girl is because it is a feminine noun in Hebrew: http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H2451&t=KJV

Also, Proverbs are in the Genre of Wisdom literature. This genre was written to tell about things that are true most of the time, but don’t always happen. You’ll get a lot of retribution talk in the Wisdom Lit. but we know that this isn’t a constant principle. That’s just one example…

Lastly, there is some rocking good stuff in Proverbs. It especially makes more sense if you think about Solomon, who had a buttload of wives/concubines, and all the Wisdom he must have gained from having that experience. That is, if you are one who believes that Solomon wrote most of Proverbs. Hahaha…
