Do you smile back?

Why don't people smile anymore? I'm always smiling at people at the store and in public. . .and it seems that less and less people smile back as time goes by!

  • I live in a town that has grown greatly over the past 10 years or so. It has been very upsetting for me to go from being able to talk to anyone who was standing in line at the grocery store to not even getting smiles as i walk down the street.

  • I always smile, sometime I even say Hi if you could imagine. The same thing while driving through our neighborhood I always wave, what happened to people being nice. I don't know something about being friendly to others makes me feel better inside. Maybe I am just starved for adult interaction while hubby is out to sea. How long does it really take?

  • I smile all the time and I'm pretty much of a happy person. But not everyone responds. Too bad,isn't it?

  • People are mean and nasty, but I smile back, and I also initiate smiles or hellos. :)

  • i smile back when i am in the mood. some people can be a bit much. i live in south alabama, and some of the people around here can be so chatty. if i am in a hurry, i don't look up at other people. i may never get out of the store.
