we see a lot of strangers and friends in our daily life. many of them smiles towards us (with or without any reason). so will you give back a smile to them ? there is a well known proverb SMILE COSTS NOTHING,BUT IT GAINS MUCH. i belive in it , so i usually smile back .

Hey Ram, I truly agree with "SMILE COSTS NOTHING,BUT IT GAINS MUCH". I do the same. And will wish that everyone inspire from you this post and begin smiling back. Hats of to you, really nice topic started.

Yes I do smile back to the person who smiles at me. I don't want to be snob so I smiling back to them and give them the impression that I'm friendly. Yes I believe in that saying too and there's nothing wrong about it.

For sure I do. I have experienced the best smiles ever from a total stranger. These smiles stay with you because for some strange reason they seem to mean more to me because they came from a complete stranger.

As long as it is not some creepy guy that is smiling at me in a way to hit on me, then I do give a warm smile back when I see people smile at me. I think that the world would be a much better place if people were happier and wanted to make others feel good by just raising their mouth into a smile, it is minimal effort, and someone on the street that is having a horrible day, that feels utterly alone, that tiny effort that shows appreciation of "hey you are here in the world, just like me, you deserve a sign of friendliness", that one tiny effort of being friendly and a kind person, could keep them going that day, or help keep them going.....this world is f'd up, we need to be positive to survive I think.
