I would never tell someone to smile. I'd never tell anyone what expression they should have or mention it at all to anyone. It's just so RUDE!
Yes it is annoying more often than not, when people tell me to smile, it's always some guy. Just don't please, I don't wanna so cut it out.

Yeah, I personally don't walk around smiling like some fool hearted jack-o'-lantern. I do typically exchange smiles with most people since it's just something that occurs often when Im out and it seems appropriate in the moment

Yes.

I smile a lot, but I will agree itís obnoxious when some stranger (nearly always a man) calls out ďsmile!Ē as you walk by, deep in thought (or not).

When I smile at people, I usually only do little, polite close mouthed smiles. Itís not the same way that I smile for pictures with teeth showing.

I have a couple different smiles I use at various times and situations they are genuine

a) smile with lips closed, (the pleased to meet you smile)
b) smile but with some teeth visible (photograph smile)
c) Cheshire cat grin when I see something I like
d) wry smile of understanding
e) camaraderie smile
f) smile of surprise

and a few others, that are situational.

I commute public transit and generally have a nonplussed annoyed look (quasi RBF).


This one works well keeping strangers from bothering me.

An 11 yr old nephew described the look while looking through a photo album from a few decades ago as, "you look like you just killed someone".

Come to think of it I only give full teeth cheese smile for photos, gawd at least I hope. I haven't had any one give me a WTH face so I think I'm in the clear.

Yes. I dropped a few thousands for these straight pearly whites.

Going to work has not been so pleasant lately.
My Co workers have said numerous times they miss my beautiful smile.
I miss it too. One day I'll smile more at work.
Just not right now.

Yes. I'm told my smile/lips/mouth is one of my best features. I'm quite fond of it myself.

With Mr. Meta on one of our early dates. Definitely one of my favorite photos.



Later with pink hair.

What is an RBF? Anyway, I hated my smile for years. My teeth were very crooked. Then at age 40, I got braces. Although they are expensive, I'm glad I got them. I will get them off in about 8 months. Life is too short to be unhappy with your appearance.
