  • A good friend you can be truthful to, but other than that you have to treat it like a neutral greeting and just respond politely. Fine, thank you, how are you? :)

  • Nah, I do kind of betray my emotions, in person. But I don't go in to a big explanation. If i'm awesome I say that, if I'm down I'll say "egh" or something along those lines.

  • For the most part, I'll say "Good, thanks, how are you?" Or if I'm having a rough day I'll ask them if they want me to sugar coat it. LOL

  • I'll be honest. Don't ask a question if you don't want to know the answer!

  • I most always say I'm doing great! Even when I'm not. It's my attempt to be positive.

  • I think it depends on who is asking... A close friend I will be more open, a stranger, I will say "fine thanks, you?"
