Is it true that people are prettier when they smile?

  • Yeah, but I prefer not to smile, I feel like it's fake, so I don't like how I look when I smile.
    You look better while smiling though.

  • Yes! It makes you. literally, ten times more attractive. You are still a bit self-conscious in the last photo, but it's very nice.

  • Smiling makes women look a lot nicer than straight face to men, but the opposite isn't true of men for women.

  • I don't care how ugly someone is. A smile will light up their face making them more approachable.

  • It just makes them look more approachable but sometimes they can still look attractive without smiling.

  • I think it's because because of the emotion on their face that they look better. Anger can make someone look uglier while happiness makes them look prettier.

    Unless your like me and have crooked teeth.

  • It's not necessarily the smile. It's what shines through. When a person is happy and full of life, it shows. It actually shows more in a person's eyes, but is reflected in the smile. For instance, you gave a (tooth free) smile in the last picture. It still doesn't make you look happy. You look unsure of yourself and insecure. It shows all over your face and in your eyes.

    • by the way, you don't have a "resting bitch face" at all.

      As far as being prettier, you are pretty whether you smile or not. People are arttracted to those who look happy. That is what looks "pretty" to them.

  • Not for everyone... I personally hate my smile and I honestly look better with a smirk or just snout any look than showing teeth.
