Default smiling

Im really insecure about my smile so I dont do it a lot. I try to look like Im busy with something all the time, or in a rush, so people dont approach me. the other day I went into a shop to get breakfast and the guy behind the counter said "you have a beautiful smile, you should show it more" as he handed me my order.

I was taken aback. Im never complimented by guys and especially not on my smile, my teeth arent the best looking and it makes me face look fat. I wasnt sure if he took my rushed attitude as upset/stressed and was trying to cheer me up or if he really thought I was pretty.

I can never tell with these types of things!

Me too. Smiling makes me feel ridiculous, it's just easier to look neutral and distracted because otherwise my neutral face looks rather vacant :|

At least you're not one of those creepy people who smiles all the ****ing time!!!

If you ever do learn to smile, please promise me that you won't become one of those "superficial" people who never doesn't smile!

In 7th grade, I had a teacher who always smiled NO MATTER WHAT, the smile was obviously fake, it was really dumb, and it NEVER EVER WENT AWAY!! Then one day, all the kids were nagging her to give them less homework and SHE JUST SNAPPED!!! She started throwing books everywhere, screaming, cursing the students, and WE NEVER SAW HER AGAIN after that. LOL, I'm not even joking, that really did happen!! NO JOKE!

<- Me too. I hate smiling I always think my smile sucks, or that I'm faking a smile. I mean it always seems like an act, that I have to put effort into even smiling. What's up with that!
