Do you frequently find yourself - just to be polite - saying things you don't mean? For example ... when you say good-bye to someone who doesn't interest you, do you act as though you enjoyed their company? Explain ....

Sometimes I do say things that are not pleasant. For your question, I will say goodbye and be nice. Even if you do not like him or her, doesn't mean you have to be hostile to them. And being polite makes you a better person as well. You don't want to be somebody that nobody like, that's terrible.

I am very polite and talk even with eneiies too. I'll surely say "good-bye" to such person too and it often happens with me. I've learned a lot in my life now and tolerate many unpleasant things too now. By nature, i am polite.

That's great. I think everyone should at least be polite. There is no reason to be rude to people.

I have always been a firm believer in treating others the way you expect to be treated yourself. Nobody wants to think of themselves as a third wheel or the downer. I had a friend, who is now deceased, who was one of the most caustic people I had ever met. This woman had a heart of gold. She was generous with her time. Despite her being so miserable, she was a wonderful friend. I miss this woman terribly. Life is short. Focus on the qualities that you enjoy in a person. If you do not, you will only see the negative side of the person. Friendless is a lonely place to be.

I always try to be polite. When I say goodbye to someone who didn't interest me I do say i had a good time, so not to make him feel bad. When around a girl i dont care for I still hug her and act polite around her. always say thank you, your welcome etc.

I do that too. I figure why make someone feel bad by letting them know that I was miserable around them?

I tried to be double polite as far as possible till such time the other person is polite. If he acts funny then I also act double funny.
