Heheh... its a weird question that really asks how you interact to other people. I read a quote in a book that i just read. Here is the quote: SMILE A LOT. IT COSTS NOTHING AND IS BEYOND PRICE. Its seemed that smile is really important in our life... we face problems everyday, and our face always look serious and wrinkle comes faster than we ever known... Smile really bring advantage in our lives since its bring a good effect in our psychological and physical needs. You will feel better for your self and face other people in better way... People will react to you in better way also, since its seemed that you give a good expression while meet them... Its also a business way to attract consumer... Physiologically, smile will move our face muscle, and bring good effect for blood circulation... And SMILE IS FREE!!! you have freedom to smile or not... But its really have a good impact in your daily life... For me, i always smile this several weeks, i always try to smile... and people will smile at me. Even smile is really simple and no word requires, its symbol of affection and respect to other people, to show them that i'm happy to see them (even not all) lol. SMile!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't check to see where you are from. I am from the United States. We are taught to smile frequently from childhood. In the United States it is almost disingenuous to greet someone without smiling. We frequently smile without thinking about it. A friend from Europe once suggested that we smile too much, and that could be, but smiling at another person warms both their heart and yours. Smiling can make you feel much better. It can make others feel better and can make the day a little easier to go through. But as always, a smile only goes a little ways. You still need hard work and ability and talent and all the other stuff your parents talked to you about. But don't forget to smile. It can help a whole lot. I am smiling, just writing this. I told you, those of us in the United States are taught to smile at just about anything. lol. It is second nature to us.

well i smile everyday and laugh when something is funny. but i think most people just laugh too much like my mom. She laugh everytime she gets nervous when talking to someone... which is like everyday. i think it's kinda pathetic like that i don't want to tell her because it might hurt her feeling.

I often smile when i am out and about and it makes me feel so good to get a smile back in return. and I will stand in front of my mirror in the bathroom when i am down and smile and suddenly I feel just great.

Smile is never a commodity but it makes you profit a lot by giving it away. Why not? By smiling, you make yourself prettier and approachable. I like to be trusted and sought after for advice. When I smile, that gives people a clue they're welcome.

I also generally pass a smile when I'm at office or work. Well, if someone doesn't smile back, I still feel good about myself because that person may just come around at a later time and appreciate that smile. Some people do experience incredible stresses in life and possibly something just occurred or that person received unbearable bad news. But they will most likely remember that smile at a later time and even though we don't get to experience theirs, ours still does the job! It's all about giving and not receiving, right?!

I have always been one to smile a lot. As a child I heard one of my mom's friends question my mom if there was something wrong with me because I was very quiet and smiled too much. I was only about 5 and i will never forget it. My boss said that I have a natural smile on my face most of the time and my eyes are usually smiling as well. I do not always smile tho. When things are really bad in my life, I try to continue smiling and thinking positive but I will say that people who know me can tell by my eyes that something is wrong regardless of my mouth.Eyes will tell you much about a person. You are is healthy to smile even if you don't feel smiley. Sometimes the smiles you recieve back from others can turn a fake smile into reality. it works!
