The Woman Who Smiles First...


I have never been the woman who smiles first. I'm the woman who checks you out for a while, waits to see what her friends think about you, waits a little longer....and then decides if she likes you or not.
I don't follow the pack, I make my own decisions regarding who I'm interested in getting to know.
If it isn't there for me, it pretty much never is.
BUT, I have decided to turn a new leaf and try to be the woman who smiles first. Those usually are the really happy women. I can't promise that I'll warm up any sooner, I'll work on that later if I want. But I plan on trying out the smile.
What kind of woman are you? Do you smile first?

Olivia said...

I'm the smiley one. I've always been that away, it just comes natural for me. I know what you mean though!

I do smile first, I think it has to do with the fact that most of my jobs have been customer oriented so I've always had to smile first.

I am not a women ,but I always smile.It makes people wonder what you are up to.
I also decided I much prefer to see a happy face then an old grump not smiling face.
And all the women smile when they see me cuz I amso darn cute!!!!
Ok so maybe tha last line was a bit over the edge.I just try to always smile.

I would have guessed you to be a smiler. You are always to kind.

I'm a smiler. I may not say much at first, but I do smile. :)

Krista said...

I always smile first. Sometimes I may regret it when I find out later that person wasn't worth my smile. But I still smile first. Always.

Kayce said...

I'm the smiler! :)

Glinda said...

I smile because I'd rather smile than talk; I'm very reserved that way.

tracy said...

I'm the girl that always smiles first and if the smile or hello is not returned to me, I get annoyed. But I keep on smiling!

Tracey & Mike said...

I'm like steffie, I'll smile, but you're still being checked out!

This is starting to creep me out woman... I actually got choked up reading this- seeing that pic with the quote. JUST last night I was sitting with my best friend, complaining that I am ready to date, etc, and I said, "Do you think I'm unapproachable?" and she was honest, "Well, you're just really reserved at first, but not once you get to know you". I'm always being told to smile. Maybe I'll give this a try too.

I smile , but wait for the other to engage in conversation first. I'm a little shy.

Susie said...

I percieved that you were a smiler. I have trained myself to be a smiler. I feel much better when I'm first, but I'm kinda like Tracy in that if they don't smile back or ignore me I think 'lighten up'.

Mommy Spice said...

I am a smiler. I smile at anyone I make eye contact with. I'm not sure why. I just know that when someone smiles at me, it puts a little joy in my day.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

I don't like the insecure smile that some women give each other. I'm not suggesting you do it, but your post reminded me of it. It annoys me. It says "please like me". That bugs me. I will greet first, I may smile first, but I always make sure to do it with confidence.

Jonni said...

I definitely smile first. I was surprised to hear that you don't. You are so sweet, I just figured you are always smiling.

Hugs,
Jonni
