Do you have the habit of smiling when a stranger looks at your face?
4 Feb 07
I would usually never smile at a stranger unless he/she is a "stranger-I-know". What I mean by "stranger-I-know" is I've seen this person a couple of time and vice versa. Other than that, if I'm in a unfamiliar territory, I tend to be a bit more reserved. In the event that the new stranger smiles, I would surely smile back but if the new stranger looks at my face, I'll probably just look away.

I am blessed with what they call a disarming smile. There are times when I do look like I have a cloud over my face, but in general my pleasant demeanour draws a lot of smiles. A smile costs nothing and spreads goodwill and cheer around. But I am careful about establishing eye contact, particularly in unsafe places. But my general principle is present a smiling face and the world smiles with you.

most of the time i wait for them to smile at me first. actually i stare myself a lot to other faces that interest me. some stare back, some smiles.. when i stare and they smiled while i seriously stare, i like that -- it makes me happy too and giggle sometimes.
