Im pretty much always smiling (fake smiles ofc because why smile at anything if you're dead inside), where i'm from everyone is smiling all the time (atleast in public).
Down here its pretty much considered weird to have a frown on your face, people constantly ask whats wrong and if you need someone to talk to, which is nice i guess..

I only smile when I laugh. I don't smile on a daily basis.

But do you smile? Are you stoic? Depressed? Hateful? Always look mad? Or the complete opposite?

I try to. I really do. It's just I wasn't raised to smile. I really wasn't. My father told me all the time, "Stop smiling and look tough". I try to break that. But it's hard

So...do you smile?


Bulls**t. NY'ers smile. I commute into the city frequently for work. My boss is typically laughing and enjoying himself while we're at the bar having drinks, or there's the smile of the woman I'm on first name basis with at the hotel I usually stay at. Or, while wandering at night (in a semi-drunken stupor, thanks to said happy boss), from bookstore to bookstore, I see people smiling and having fun both in the shops and on the streets with their friends.

Smiling, however, does not happen between the hours of 9-5, and understandably so.

If you're wondering why nobody randomly smiles at you while walking down the street, it's because, as viral videos have proven recently, it means you're gnna be accused of rape.

RBF, but I'm pretty quick to smile. Also, the paternal side of my family, my stepmom and stepbrother, as well as many other people that I've seen haven't caught on to the "NY'ers don't smile" policy. I guess they should move and change their backgrounds. (jk)

Your boss either commutes into the city like you do or he's an alien. Hotel employees put on fake smiles because it's part of their jobs. Bookstores are typically calm environments and can't be compared to the rest of the city. That viral video was extremely exaggerated and shouldn't be taken seriously.

Not often.
I have a crooked smile - the right side of my mouth raises up more than the left.
Which I make more obvious when I smirk, with just my right side being up.
Or when I think something is funny, I make an odd teeth-gritting smile.
I'm a wee bit self-conscious of them... -3-;

me or the video?


idk... You know how I feel about NYC? It's one of the safest cities in the country. It's got the statistics to prove it.

yet every new yorker I know seems to have this sense of paranoia about them. Somebody's watching them, Somebody's out to get them......

What if the zombie apocalypse happens tomorrow? OMG! if the city loses power for a few hours, do I have the survival skills to forage edible weeds from central park?????

It's the safest yet most neurotic city I ever stepped foot in. Brooklyn's not quite as bad as Manhattan, but geez....

very nice people in the city... very nice...

I hate smiling in pictures, but I try to at least look neutral in person, and not have RBF

Sorry but this jersey boy just isn't buying it.
