I really think I need to start smiling at strangers more, the reason I don't that often is because:
- I hate my smile
- I'd rather not feel like an idiot if they didn't smile back
- I'm scared he'll just think 'ew who the heck is that weird unattractive girl and who does she think she's smiling at'
If I catch any eye contact we just stare til we past and it grows kinda awkward, I don't like it.
This might seem like an obvious question but would you prefer it if girls smiled when we walked past you guys provided we have eye contact, straight face, or pretend you're not even there?

Everyone likes to be smiled at. It doesn't matter if it is a man or woman doing the smiling either. Its a friendly thing to do, and a great way to make a good first impression. I try to smile when I make eye contact with anyone. Not all of them smile back. Some might be thinking about some really upsetting stuff. Others are just too shy to smile back. A lot of other people do, smile back. In fact, a smile can be contagious. You might see that same person smiling a few minutes later from where you put them in a good mood. I say go for it. If that is your picture on your profile, why would you think anyone would find you unattractive?2
