I'm from the south and a very friendly person. We just moved out west to CO near Denver. When I see people in passing I look at them and smile. I notice a lot of men when I pick my daughter up from daycare look away when I do this. I'm just being friendly not looking for a date. I have a gorgeous husband at home. lol I'm black and my Hubby is white and our daughter has very light skin and Long silky curly hair. I often wonder if race has anything to do with it. What do you think?
FYI! All the negative people save it I don't care that you are unhappy in life and come on here to be negative to make your sad existence seem less sad. :0)

I doubt it has anything to do with race. I live in Denver, it's pretty diverse. In fact, I sometimes feel like the only white person in my area (which I think is awesome-- much better than where I grew up). Out here people are friendly, but not overly so. I tend to keep my distance and mind my own business. I've noticed a lot of other people do the same. I think direct eye contact makes people feel uncomfortable, unless they know you.

I think Friendly Eye Contact went out the window along with picking up the phone to say Hello, how are you? OR, writing a nice letter to someone asking the same thing. It's ALL COMPUTER'S. It's crazy. I purposely look people in the eye and ask "How are you doing today"?And if they answer at all, it's OK. Hardly EVER, OK and how are YOU? I find it very sad that to get any kind of caring for one another, there must be a catastrophe like 911 or Katrina. The compassion is obviously there but people are too afraid to show it on a regular basis. Make it a point tomorrow to look someone in the eye and ask them HOW ARE YOU>

SAFER JUST TO SKIP IT??? Can you tell a "nut job" by looking in their eyes? No, I doubt it. And to put women down by saying that their insecure is nothing but a cop out. Its also ridicules. WOMEN can ask How ya doing also. It has nothing to do with flirting. If I ask someone how they are, AND I mean it, then I'm not gonna only ask HOT guys. That line was degrading to Women.
