how often a day do u smile at others?

Post by gnd » Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:21 am

Caught myself doing that "not really a smile, mouth closed, but sortasmiling" thing yesterday. Did it in the mirror to remind myself how stupid it looks.

Gaw.

Silently to self: smile dammit. actual smile.


So. Do you smile at others, or do the not-smile at them.

If I fancy them, I smile regularly with gay abandon.

All the time. I'm Mr Smile.

Often a merry quip, too.

I don't always smile, but I do smile fairly often.

I smile whenever I interact with a stranger, I think. Beyond that, I really don't know. Smiles aren't something we're constantly aware of, are they?

I just checked my expression tracker and it says I smile at people 89.24% of the time on first encounter. I smile a lot, I am happy guy, most days.

I paid a lot of money for my smile when I paid for braces at 23. It's gotten me laid on numerous occasions. And helped the work stuff. So, yeah. Often.

My nature is not to engage with strangers but I’m trying to change. A smile, kind gesture, whatever, can lift someone’s spirit, and since I want to be a ray of sunshine wherever I go, smiling at strangers is a step in the right direction.

I can't remember when I last cracked a smile.

Probably the most foreign remark I've ever consumed was DCComic, commenting and sneering a decade or so ago, about 'Seppo cunts' walking around Paris and smiling. He's English, doesn't speak French.

I don't always smile, but when I do, I'm drunk on Dos Equis.

I have a t-shirt that says "Stop telling women to smile"
May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May annoying people trip and spill a bit of coffee on their white shirts, but have no time to change, and feel completely self-conscious for the rest of the day.
