    Sarcastic Grin?

    I don't usually smile. Mostly somewhat of a sarcastic grin if u can call it that. I force a really convincing fake smile when I'm at work in front of customers though but i don't think that counts.

    Probably Not.

    I hate getting my picture taken. I guess I always have. Even when I was a kid it was hard for me to fake a smile. Like for professional/school pictures.. Always awkward. But yeah, I probably don't smile enough lol..

    Why Do People Tell Me I Need To Smile?

    why do people tell me i need to smile? fake smiling actually makes a person feel worse, smiling doesn't just magically make a person feel better, so i just never understand why people ask me that.

    But I Can't Help It...

    I'm not one of those people that can constantly smile and not feel like a total idiot. I usually have a pretty neutral expression on my face, which is probably why I seem so off-putting to people. Then if someone ever smiles at me and I smile back I feel like I make the weirdest...

    I Know I Don't

    I'm told all the time that I don't smile enough. I know I don't smile enough but I just can't really fake a convincing smile (in my opinion). My natural disposition is a perpetual scowl, lol. I constanly squint due to having weak eyes and it's bright outside I squint without even...
