    I have a smiley face. I never stop smiling. I just can't help it. I once did a dramatic monologue from Macbeth. I was supposed to be angry and sad at the same time. I thought I did an amazing job and then, I get a C because my teacher tells me I was smiling the ENTIRE time. Nope, can't stop.

    I only smile nonstop when I'm with my good friends and such. At work, I smile, but I've realized that its fake. As soon as I walk away from the person or crowd my expression drops immediately. Kinda my work conditions though.

    Anyway, my thoughts are, if you're truly happy, smile. It's a beautiful sight.

    I tend to smile a lot too. What's worse is that I can get the giggles at the most inappropriate times -- and that is NOT funny. icon_eek.gif

    I'm the complete opposite. In fact, one of my NY resolutions is to smile as default, as oppose to the ever so friendly death stare.

    Agreed!

    I smile a lot whenever I talk with someone. When I'm by myself or staring off into space, I have a pretty neutral expression, but everyone says I look sad!

    I generally have a pretty serious face on and everyone thinks I am angry but usually I am just super giddy inside. I just think a lot so my face goes serious, haha. I am always life loving!

    My cousin standing up to sing at my grandad's funeral and his head going into the bottom of a flower basket hanging from the church wall.

    I recall years ago, when I was having all my friends sign my high school year book, that a secretary in the office that I knew signed two words, "Keep Smiling". Only think I recall from the yearbook but over 30 yrs later, that one I recall. Nothing wrong with smiling icon_lol.gif

    Depends on my surroundings, and people with me. I can usually just stop smiling if i want to.

    Smiling is contagious though, and nothing wrong with that, though at a sad event, it can be frowned upon.

    The real question is why would you want to stop smiling. Smiling does the soul wonders.

    Smiling really makes me feel good if I'm feeling down, it's an easy way out of a shit attitude...Serving at a country club restaurant I sometimes have to act a certain way in order to make the customer feel more at ease and this usually involves some smiling, I've noticed smiling, even if it's kinda forced usually makes me more upbeat in general. I like smiles, I think they can tell you a lot about someone.
