Good points all - a smile very often brings out the best in peeps.

However, as you can see from my pic I am not smiling - 3 reasons.. 1. it was for my passport 2. I trnd to try and avoid cameras wherever possible! 3. I am normally the one taking the pics of everyone else. :p

Saying that I will try and find a piccie of me smiling.. there must be one in existence somewhere......

Well, I'm new to this site, but I personally think Grizzly0154 has a GREAT smile :-)

Life is short, especially in the world we live in today. Hey, why not smile? Things could be worse.

LOL i think my pic is enuf to scare anyone off lol, and thats me supposedly 'smiling' i swear i think i lok like a psychopath on day release lol, i must admit i love seeing a person smile esp if i put the smile there! But even if the mouth isnt smiling, eyes can show happiness, i adore 'laughing eyes' sometimes seeing the eyes smile means a lot more than the mouth curved upwards lol

I always smile in pics. It's because I have a gorgeous smile. I've been told that by many ppl, especially men. My ex (who I met online) said my smile is what caught his eye. Having straight, white teeth helps. LOL I do believe some ppl photograph better when not smiling. I guess if u're attractive it really doesn't matter if u smile or not, but I think a sincere smile lightens up anyones face and makes their eyes come alive. Which is what I find makes anyone attractive.

Some people don't smile for personal/medical reasons.. IE bad teeth or what ever it may be.. Not a lovely thought I know.. But hey part of life any more..Not every one has the money to pay out.. If you aren't Lucky enough to have proper medical coverage..

I always try to smile...I find it infectious and makes others around me smile also. I have dimples so I used to get comments and teased of that alot when I was younger.

Way back in high school a friend was taking photos of me and looked up from the camera and said you frown when you smile. I was confused by his comment but saw what he ment when I looked in a mirror. The corners of my mouth turn down more the bigger my smile gets. Sometime this drives me crazy!

I'm guilty of having one of those photos in my album, but it's not out of unhappiness or anger, but because I wanted people to see my eyes. When I smile they disappear and my face looks like all cheek :)

Maybe it is just me. I admit to a bias against people who do not smile. I work with nearly 200 people and at one time or another I HAVE seen them smile at least once. Most smile. I wonder how people get through life just frowning all day. In music entertainment it is 'cool' to pout. I don't care for it, but regardless. I mention this because there are a number of profile photos that look as though these people are at gun point, or in a vise, or made of clay. I don't mean to badger, but did you ever hear that more flies are caught with honey, not vinegar? I won't mention names on the site but there are some hysterical sour/bland/angry faces on profiles that are asking for a date. (!) Just thought I'd mention it. Lighten up a little will ya? It will do you good.

I was going to agree but then gave it some deeper thought. Lets say you went one further and asked for a tidy bedroom, a grass meadow instead of a scruffy back yard, a mansion in the country rather than a high rise block of flats. You can see where this is leading. The fact is the queen of England has never ever seen England or has never spoken to a common English person. Because she is only ever shown the nice things in life and when people do get to speak to her they put on a false smile and a big act.

We are what we are and if that means that we're not smiling then that's who we are some of the time.

What if you went on a date with someone who smiled on their photo, would you expect them to sit there with a silly grin on their face all night?

I see you're point about coming across to others at your best. But I really like an honest candid picture taken in true surroundings.

Remember what Oliver Cromwell said "paint me warts and all".

You're right what you say but I can see why people don't always smile.

Ironically if you look left you will see that I am smiling!
