It's arrogant IMO.what would make you think it's your business to tell a stranger that? It just goes back to the mind set some people have about women having to always seem pleasant and pleasing to any man regardless of her actual feelings. I don't even respond to guys who say that stupidity, it's not cute
I think it's because you look upset, angry, or even bitchy. I'm guessing it's because you're a pretty girl, and they don't get why you look unhappy. Maybe they seek to help. There's also a chance they've seen you smile before, and think you have a pretty smile, but if it's random stranger probably not so much.
Granted, you don't have to do it, and I can see how it can get annoying. People do that to me all the time too. Still, I think they mean well enough. Especially if this comes from any of your friends family or assorted loved ones. In those cases, do try to be understanding. If it's strangers, feel free to tell them off, or bare minimum ask them what the fuck.
walking around with a smug glummy frown and attitude is disgusting and selfish wanting people to feel sorry for you. NOT attractive or inviting. You're already here on Earth may as well make the best of it.
It's kind of a compliment. It means they think you are cute, but would be cuter if you smiled. They want to see you looking happy. It's really important to guys that the women around them act happy because most guys actually feel somewhat responsible for the happiness of girls. Weird but true.
Its not a big deal. Its like people saying "hi, how are you?. Do they actually care how you are? Nooo Same as asking you to smile, people think its a way of breaking the ice or cheering you up, like smile it'll never happen.
they think your face exists for them to look at. they don't like how you're treating their property. making it look unattractive and reminding hem they can't have sex with u. smiles make you look more open to suggestion. more available. more accessible. anyways what right do you have to not make them feel like you're hAppy to see them.
I think it depends on my mood. If I am really annoyed and they insist that I smile, then I will be pissed off. But if it is on normal situation, then I would think that they are just trying to see if I am happy or not. Then usually I would smile at them.
