Do girls honestly ever smile/stare at guys?

Anonymous
a lot of people (both girls and guys) suggest that the best way to tell if a girl likes you, whom you've never talked to before, is see how she reacts to your presence. If she stares at you or smiles, she's interested and you should definitely approach her.

Is this true? I've literally never had a girl openly smile at me, or even stare at me. Heck i've never seen a guy do it to a girl either. But when I go up and talk to the girl anyway she talks to me just fine, and yes she does continue the conversation.

So what gives?

Just to clarify again, i'm only 22. had my fair share of going out in public a lot to public events, or walking around university. never had a girl openly smile at me EVER.

but when i go up to them and talk to them anyway, they respond just fine?
