I'm curious how many people nod/smile/make eye contact or greet the opposite gender in passing..
Being shy in unfamiliar territory, I'm generally not one for any of the above. Until today.
I was wearing sunnies, but I figured I may as well step out of my comfort zone and actually smile at a random girl walking past. Sounds pathetic I know, but it's not my thing. I generally just ignore and go about my business like no one exists until they actually step into my world.
It wasn't a toothy/cheesy grin, but I think it was a smile of sorts. What surprised me was the fact the girl actually smiled back, and said Hi, to which I said Hello back! Honestly made my day!
i wish I took the time to smile at people more, because I'm usually furrowing my brows deep in thought, to actually notice that people exist around me. this is the main reason why I hardly have guys coming up to me because I always look pensive hahahahaha.
Most of the time I don't expect people to be friendly so I kinda ignore it because by the time I realize what they said or did I've already walked by but usually I look back and try to fake a smile
Ya I know I tried that on a guy I'm shy and just wanted to see what would happen-well I did something different I smiled at a guy id usually never talk to caz he's not the same race..I was expecting a smile or a ignore since its happened with guys of my race instead I got a smile and a verbal 'hi' I was shocked and barely mangaed to say hi back..but then again he was one of those people asking for doanations by safeway.but he didn't ask me
