If somebody will smile to you in the street you will smile too?

Are peoples very happy who all time they smile, everywhere..in the street, to shopping, to work. But are peoples who smile just to see if you will smile too, and start to talk with you.. You will smile too, if somebody smile to you when you are in street or in public place? Do you think that is a sign that you are a open mind or is just a innocent gesture?

I don't think that a person who smiles all the time in public is necessarily a very happy person... they might be :) You can't be sure. However, I do think that people who smile in public are quite pleasant. If I'm walking in my neighborhood and I pass someone and happen to make eye contact, I'll smile back. I have to admit that I don't go out of my way to smile at people though because, in public, I don't like to encourage conversation with strangers if I'm on a deadline or in a place where I'm not especially comfortable. But I think, in general, it's nice to greet another person with a smile... sometimes, it just makes a person feel good to do that :)

Yes, if someone smiled at me in public I would definitely smile back in order to be polite. I feel like that person went out their way to be nice to me so I could at least return the favor. Sometimes, I smile at people briefly if we make eye contact.

of course i would! smiling to another person is always nice whether as a simple gesture or just a response to their smile, specially when you really mean that smile.. a simple smile can sometimes lessen the sadness in another persons heart when the person in front of them smiles, even without reason. it only takes a few face muscles to smile and yet, it does way more than using your whole body to make another person happy..
