A Smile Does It
So, after a year of going to the same healthclub in the mornings before work, I still don't know anybody. Partially because everyone's kind of tired in the morning, and partially because I don't like the idea of starting up conversations when males are undressing quite close to me.
But, I've seen a lot of the same faces for over a year now, and I've made up personalities for these people in my head...at least, I've determined whether or not I like them.
After thinking about this, I realized that there is a huge correlation between those people that smile (look happy) and whether or not I like them.
So, if this true of strangers, think of how important smiling must be to succeed in other venues/relationships where actual human interaction takes place.
