What do you do when a stranger smiles at you?

I always encounter this, what I usually do is to think first If I know the person and after that I smile at him/her also. LOL! Reverse psychology in short. But at the back of my mind, I tell to myself that he/she likes me. LOL! Im just being true to myseld and that's what I feel. LOL!

Hi sendoh, I live in Bombay and its a very busy place. Here usually people give each other a weird look and then move on . I mean its like mind your own business type attitude here. If someone is giving me smile then i return it with a smile and if some one gives me a weird look i give a weird look as well . Thats how it is and i really dont think too much y some one is smilling at me. Becoz most of the time iam in my own world and i have better theings to worry about . Cheers, Tutul

I guess there is no harm in smiling back and say hi or hello. I feel good when someone I encounter smiles at me. It seems as if he/ she wants to befriend me. But of course, it will depend on what his/ her actuations are when he/ she smiled at me.

I usually stare at the person who smiles at me, just as you do, I also smile back at them. But at the back of my head, I always wonder who they were. I can't blame them. I just think we really have met before 'cause sometimes, even my classmates way back in elementary through college, I can't recognize them anymore. Maybe I have this selective amnesia or worst a "memory gap".LOL....
