Are you always smiling?

Asked by daytonamisticrip (4840 points ) August 28th, 2010

Are you usually smiling? Or do you usually have a straight face? Or are you always pissy faced? And does it always reflect how you feel?

I think I’m always pissy-faced, even when I’m in a good mood. That’s the impression I get.

People always tell me that I look sad.

Yes. “Tears of a clown when no one is around..”

I’m pretty readable. I have a default non-expression face, but it doesn’t look “sad”; it just looks…expressionless. If I look sad, I probably am. If I look happy, I probably am.

My co workers will say I’m always smiling but at home I relax and give it a rest.

I laugh alot. I even have a nervous laugh. I went to court one time and the judge asked me if I thought it was funny. I said no Wipe the smile right off my face, So yes I guess that is a yes.

I have a poker face unless I’m around a very special person. She always makes me smile.

I think it’s about 50/50 between a smile and a straight face. I only have a sad face when I am really, really sad. I try to hide my sadness most of the time, so I rarely have a sad face.

My face is generally straight/blank. It’s the funniest thing though, my best friend looks like a huge bitch by default. Before I’d catch her eye passing her in the hallway in high school, she always looked ready to beat someone to a pulp. Of course, then she’d see me and her face would light up in a smile. But even the friends we made eventually said to her, “I used to think you were a bitch, you always looked mean.” She hates hearing it though, cause she can’t help it.

Lately, no.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@le_inferno I have a friend like that as well. People always think she hates them before they even meet her.

Over time she really did come to be quite a bitch. I guess the accusations started to sink in.

Not always but a fair bit.

stardust's avatar

I laugh a lot – it doesn’t take much. In between laughter and smiling I’m usually straight faced.

I’m a smiley person ;)

Blondesjon's avatar

No, but I am constantly trying to get others to smile.

The best way to get someone to smile is for you to smile.

Confirmation: Travelling promotional guys who come to our stores every few months said they recognized me from the last visit by my smirk.

Trillian's avatar

Well, I think I’m smiling but I’ve had lots of peole tell me that I look unapproachable. That always freaks me out, because that’s not how I am at all. Wait….

Coloma's avatar

Mostly smiling. I’m a happy and zippy personality, even when I am sick as a dog I’ll find the humor in it. :-)

BoBo1946's avatar

pretty much so.

rooeytoo's avatar

Might as well smile, even if you don’t feel like it, you can act yourself into a way of thinking!
And it beats being miserable!

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Despite my extremely negative character, moodiness, depressive nature, when I am out, at work and generally in front of people, they ALWAYS comment on my smiling, pleasant nature.BUT on the inside….....another story!

Jabe73's avatar

On occasion. Nothing gets on my nerves more than someone telling me I need to smile more. I need a reason to smile. Ironically when I do smile I get people criticising me for that as well.

cookieman's avatar

My wife tells me that I always look like I’m about to kill someone. She’s said this for years. Even if I’m in a perfectly good mood, I look very intense. I think it’s just because I’m usually thinking about something.

So ‘no’ – not much smiling going on here.

mrentropy's avatar

@cprevite That’s the same thing I get. Even if I think I am smiling.

BoBo1946's avatar

Smiling and laughing is better than the alternative of crying and frowning! be happy!

Austinlad's avatar

I inherited deep lines from my nose down around my mouth, which I was once told makes me sometimes appear to be frowning. That’s one of the reasons I grew a beard years ago (which evolved over time to a goatee), but then I just looked like a frowning guy with a goatee. So I started compensating by trying to smile a lot. But then I noticed in the mirror one day what I thought was a genuine smile looked phony. So now I just try to be friendly and not worry about how my face looks. I especially try to smile at little kids, and am always stunned when they smile back. (Do parents teach kids today not to smile at strangers?)

cookieman's avatar

@mrentropy: Exactly. I’ll even think I look happy and someone will say, “What’s wrong with you?” LOL.

downtide's avatar

People are constantly telling me to smile more. I think I look naturally pissy-faced even when I’m happy.

curlyz's avatar

I smile a lot….until it hurts in my cheeks…..:)))

NaturallyMe's avatar

No. I think i often look much more serious than what i actually feel. I don’t hold back on smiles though when i have reason to give one, or something makes me laugh.

Broken_EarthAngel's avatar

Well not always..I guess you may say my smile can be a bit of a signature, sometimes I smile to the point my cheeks actually ache :) OUCH!
