I know this question might seem silly or stupid but you'll be surprised of how many people out there that cant stand to see or make someone else happy without gaining something or having a motive a lot of people I've met online and offline dont understand that, I'm just the kind of person who likes to put a smile on peoples face just by providing helpful info or just by making them laugh. I honestly take joy in seeing others happy or relieved, long gone are the days of totally selfishness because being selfish dose not come from a good place and I'm a lot more mature now and I realize that nothing good can come from only thinking of one self, so when I feel happy or prosperous I want others to feel the same happiness and prosperity I feel and a lot of people I meet find it strange I guess oh well. So how about ya'll do you like to make others happy just because you want to and no other reason?

Hi, apples99. Yes, I want to see and make others happy just because. I don't want anything in exchange, I just want to see them smile and feel happy. People look so much better when they smile and are happy. It makes me feel good inside too. Your question is not stupid or silly at all. We actually have people like that in this world, that want to be seen to others as known when they can make another person smile. I do it for free, I want nothing from this person at all.

Hi,apples99.I like to make people happy not just because I can ,but because I can be happy at he same time.I like to speak cold jokes,and I also like to make some funny faces.When people become happy after I do these things,I feel better than I am happy just for myself.

It is very nice personality to make others happy without gaining anything. In this age of rats race everybody is tense for some reason. So, it's very nice if i can make them smile a bit. This can also enstrength the bond between us.

Yes why not? I will surly do what ever I can do to make some one Happy. Spreading Smiles is really a divine cause. And I will not do it because it is divine but because I like to do it.

I like to make people happy, not without reason. the reason is I care about my feelings,when I saw the smiling faces of people are happy it makes me feel happy.

It is a great feeling when you know you made the people around you happy without expecting anything in return. That great feeling itself is the instant reward you could get and for me that would be enough. =)

most of the time, i always find ways to make people around me happy especially when a depressed friend or even a neighbor. i just feel contentment and "feel good inside". It is more fulfilling to know that you were able to affect someone's lives just by doing an unselfish act. Just keep on doing what you have started and be happy..

Hello apples99. It is good to read this from you and it is very inspiring to know people that do wants to share their happiness and prosperity to others. Bless your good heart! As for me, that is one of my favorite thing to do. I wanted to make people laugh and happy just because I can, no other reasons, no other motives. Life is something that everyone should enjoy, so if you enjoy life, one purpose you need to accomplish is to share it, I am living by this now, and I am glad you are one with me. Also, making others happy, seeing the smile on their faces brings incomparable joy to my heart. It's addicting, I bet you would agree. Thank you for the discussion. Have a great day!

I love to make people happy. Even though I'm usually in a funk cause I miss my girlfriend, who lives in another city, or for other reasons, I'll go out and entertain my sister whenever she gets bored. She treats me like a monkey; coming to get me whenever she's bored. I'll hide it when my girlfriend makes me feel bad about something so she doesn't feel bad for making me feel bad. Cause.. it's really okay. And all I want is for her to smile.

My reason would be to let myself happy. I mean I would find a way to make other people happy because it makes me happy too when some body is happy.
