Hey, all mylot friends,do u think making friends is an easy or hard thing to do? lots of my good friends are known by only one smile or just a few words.. but things strange is u might hv known ur classmates for year or u lived with ur roommates for years, but ur relationship with them cant even compare ppls u known in few days. that feeling is so strange. i knew my best 4 friends by a smile. they sit beside me ..we didnt know each other before..but just one friendly smile starts our friendship.... time is an intereting thing....my best 4 friends are all very open and frank girls like me..i still remember we became cloes friend the day after we knew each other..that kind of feeling just like we knew each other for years.. hv u ever think making friends is such an easy thing? or u knew ur friends like me? in this way? thanks so much for ur reading hv a good day

Well, people always appreciate a good, sunny smile, don't we all. Would you like to see a great smile or a frown face? A sunny smile might touch everyone's warm heart, and we all love to see it. To win a good friend, like you said before, a good smile always work the best.

Hai babyorchid, well i think yes and no. yes, just a smile can blossom into a friendship, cus smiling makes you seem open. but than again, if you put really high standards for a friend than it could be difficult to find a friend. but overall, i think it's pretty easy if your open to new people :)

Yes, I think that a simple smile will start a new friendship. There is a saying that "smile and the world will smile at you, cry and you only cry alone". So why not give a smile to every one.

That does happen.It's weird but interesting at the same time.It makes you wonder can a random stranger have more in common with you then your supposed "best friend".There are just things in life that can not be explained.

With A Smile? I believe that this is a good way to make a friend. Only if He/She smiles back. To me a smile is the first step to a good friendship!

hello, i think a smile is a good tool in making friends, but to find a real friend is not that easy, we can smile to everybody but we don't know if it will go straight to friendship. i think it also depends on the people and our attitudes. have a nice day! :-0

it's really hard for me to make friends because i am so shy. i don't open up to people at all.. but people think i am nice and quiet. but i don't really have any friends at all. it sucks. i wish i did. i hate always being alone. but making friends for me is not easy.

It depends with the situation. Smiling to other people is an open invitation for friendship. But if the receiver of the smile don't want to do anything with you, then there's nothing you can do.

thats sweet but to me it takes lot of time. my best friends are those with whom i passed lot of time and they became my best friend once we had lots of time together. hehehe silly me i am too choosy about friends :)

Yeah, that is interesting.. count to think of it. We do meet friends that we just suddenly got friends with without a long span of time being consumed just getting to know each other while, there are those people that we have been with for a long time but, we simply don't know at all. I don't know, may be people just end up being friends while there are times when they simply won't be friends at all. They'll just know each other either by names or by faces but, aside from that, nothing else. (-_-")

In my opinion, making friends takes more than just a smile. There has to be some form of communication and interaction in order to determine the person's personality, likes/dislike, values etc etc.. friends are more than just people who you occasionally hang out with.. good friends are there to support you in time of distress/trouble...they are there to offer advice and to even share your happiness with. A simple smile does not, in my opinion, determine friendship... sure it has the potential to start a friendship.. but after that there's gotta be more than just a smile. :) .. People generally be-friend people who have shared or common interests (that way you guys can hang out and have something to talk about and do!)

It depends on the person. Personally I either open up easily with certain people or i completely shut myself off. I tend to enjoy keeping just a close small circle of friends rather than dozens of people i will see only occasionally.

Hello, I have also made some friends with just a smile and then we started a conversation. Other times I'm really shy so I don't know if I should smile or if I should start talking. I guess it all dipends on the other person also because if that person is also shy its a little bit harder to start a conversation. But its rally nice to have friends but most of my friends left to another state and my husband gets mad if I talk to them because they are guys. :(

Base on my experience through smiling to those people you dont know and they reply what you did to them means you make a friends through actions... we have lots of thing to make friends to people that surrounds us.. either verbal or nonverbal.
