Real Men Smile

It’s never fun to date the serious, uptight, completely devoid of a sense of humor type person. Sure, they have their great qualities: reliable and dependable, practical and logical, blah blah. Whatever, I don’t trust people that don’t ever smile. Why so serious!?

I know that so many of us cope with day to day stress, some more than others. We all have things we are struggling with or trying to figure out, it’s called adulthood. However, when you lose your smile and can’t find laughter in your life, you become a lot less appealing to people you may want to attract.

The last time you were asked out on a date, were you smiling and having a good time? Yeah, there is reason for that! Who is going to approach the ice queen or the mean mugging man? I don’t care how hot you are, if you are walking around looking unhappy and uptight, you are turning folks off!

If you are in a social setting, make sure you are up to mingling and engaging with people…with a smile. I never understand why people go to parties or mixers and don’t bother to speak to anyone other then their own friends.

So what does it take to make you smile?

Ladies, when was the last time a man made you smile? Perhaps it was a random encounter or a sweet gesture that did the trick. How did you respond? Did you reciprocate?

Men, why do you insist on walking around like Mr. Tough Guy all the time? Is it lame for you to smile or something?

What has a woman done for you or to you that made you smile? insert your own naughty joke here

How can women bring a smile to your face if she is on a date with you?  What about when you are in a relationship or married? It’s the little things, right? DVR’ing your favorite shows, wearing nothing but your dress shirt when you get home, let us know how we can lift your mood and get a smile out of you!

Have you ever been on a date with someone and they just would not smile?

Morning All!

Ladies, when was the last time a man made you smile? Perhaps it was a random encounter or a sweet gesture that did the trick. How did you respond? Did you reciprocate?

I recently had a new hair style done and this man walked up to me and told me I made his heart skip a beat and that I was gorgeous. It made my day! I cheesed like there was no more tomorrow. I thanked him. What made it more special was that he wasn’t hitting on me, he was being very genuine in his observation.

How do I make men smile?

I compliment them. I have no problem telling a man that he looks nice or that his cologne is wonderful. Its done in the spirit of happiness.

A smile goes a long way.. I love making someones day with a smile and compliment. I realized the power of a smile one day when I thought evrything couldnt get any worse but they kept getting worse by the hour. A old lady walked up, smiled and told me that Jesus loves me. At that moment I realized things arent as bad as they seemed and my day got better because I started looking at it that way. So when Im down I start to smile, think my day is gonna get better and it usually does.

Guten Morgen Bloggers!

I love positive energy around me because sometimes I don’t smile as much as I should, but I had the best date ever this past weekend and could not stop smiling:) :) !!!!!!!!! As a matter of fact, I am smiling just thinking about how much fun we had! The converstation was great, the company was great and he looked really goooood.

I was taught that the hallmark of a professional is a “POKERFACE”. For some of us it’s a little harder to turn off and on, but the right thing
will knock down all those walls an make you smile with your whole heart.

(Song)
Smile though your heart is aching;
Smile even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That’s the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.

Have a great day! :)

Morning lovelies –

I’m an extrovert and a social butterfly, being out is something I enjoy. Having fun is something I enjoy. Living life is something I enjoy.

A sense of humor is one of my top requests in a guy. I love to laugh.

When is the last time a man made me smile? Last night. Our time on the phone is spent cracking jokes with one another, same when we are out.

Why I am smiling this morning???

It made me smile when at the marido’s request I went online 8-ish a.m. this morning to print directions to a place he is going this afternoon and while online I peeped the topic for today. Reading the topic brings to mind one of my favorite songs “Your Smile” by Angela Winbush which I just so happen to have on CD, so I reached in the drawer put it in the player. That song makes me dance every time. So there I was moving to the rhythm of that sweet melody relaxed in my fav tank and b-shorts. I was just entranced in the air of the music when I felt from behind a hand grip my hip, the other around my waist and then that body pressed against mine…that baritone humming the tune of the resounding melody in my ear…then I smiled. and still smiling :wink:

Now let’s see, on topic…

Spontaneous affection = Smile

A wink just in passing = Smile

Cooking dinner without being asked = Smile

Unsolicited compliments = Smile

Without a lot of daily laughter, you’re liable to fall ill. I can coax a laugh or a smile out of almost anybody. It’s not hard to do. ‘Course, sometimes it’s the really stupid stuff that gets a smile, but what the heck, I ain’t too proud!

For those who simply can’t lighten up, smile, and laugh, I’d recommend some counseling, I guess.

Good Morning All,

Ladies, when was the last time a man made you smile?

Hmmm about a week ago when a man paid me a compliment regarding my knowledge on an issue.

I smile everyday when the security guard says “Good morning there she is..

I smiled this morning when my son– as I dropped him off at school plays his theme music on the ipod to get motivated for the day.

I just get people who never smile, who are never happy. Heck just some mornings I look out the window and the sun is shining and I smile.

When it comes to relationships it is often the little things that create the biggest most sincere smiles. For one thing those littles things often take more thought and more paying attention to your mate’s interests, needs and wants. To see that my man was paying attention to something that I said and acted on it makes my heart joyful.

Acts of care and concern also makes me happy. Opening a can of Campbell’s chicken noodle soup and warming it for me when I am feeling ill makes me smile, even if just on the inside. And actually buying the chicken, noodles, celery and going thru the whole process of making c-n-s just makes me elated. LOL

What makes my husband smile?

When I make a batch of caramel brownies and put one in his lunch bag.

When I make him a bath.

When I drop by unexpectedly to take him to lunch.

Morning wonderful blog people!

I could never date a man that never smiled or did not have a sense of humor. I tried once and I was miserable.

I absolutely love it when anyone smiles at me, male or female, child or adult. I always smile back!

Fullfilling – Those are the best kind of compliments from men, I think. The ones that are genuine and they are not trying to hit on you!

I’m silly and like to laugh, so I’m always putting a smile on SO’s face. Just the other day we were playing 1 versus 100 on his Xbox. I told him his little Xbox man was hot! That made him laugh!LOL!!

I naturally can have a serious look on my face when I’m out by myself and thinking about something or concentrating on what I’m doing. Please don’t TELL me to SMILE! That irritates the H out of me! Just smile, I’ll smile back & if I don’t, don’t take it personal. I was concentrating on something else.

@Wise Lurker, you should have wrote this article targeted at women! Oh by the way, murnin folks in my best (Bernice Jenkins “Rickey Smiley” voice)!

I find that more women don’t smile than men, especially when you greet them a.m or p.m. Every morning I speak to at least 10-12 women in my office building or at the food court, etc. and most mornings many look like someone just took all they credit cards and shoes away from them, nor do they speak back! Many look like someone just pooted!

As far as smiles go, If I had a dollar for each one of those I get,I would not have enough to buy breakfast!

I often wonder do women have any idea that their success in dating or meeting and attracting a potential is solely based on their body language! From what I see on the daily, many will continue to find themselves alone and wonder why?

The only thing that runs a close second to not smiling at all are those fake smiles that look forced. There are certain people that seem to feel obligated to smile at certain other people. It’s makes me think every time “why in the world do have you have that dumbazz look on your face?”. Heck if you don’t mean it just keep it to yourself.

The thing is a genuine bright smile is not that hard to pull off. Heck sometimes it happens before you even know it.

LL- Do you smile? What kind of personality do you have? I know with me, it’s hard for me to NOT smile. It’s like I can’t do it. Even in pictures, I try to have a serious face and it never works lol. People around me are always laughing because I’m either saying or doing something silly. Just ask W8, Mamba, Mo and the others lol. I have always been social and always a talker and a laugher my entire life. Even in elementary school and junior high school I always had good grades, but when I would get my report cards, the teachers would always put in the comments section, “talks too much in class” or something like that. It’s funny because I actually ended up going to college and getting a degree in Sociology, which is and has always been perfect for me. Being social and studying the interactions of humans in society is what I do best. LOL *go figure*.

I guess the only down side to being so outgoing and laughing a lot is that it’s hard to get people to take me seriously.

You know… I think overall people are just not happy and dealing with alot of stuff! Very few people in my opinion are truly happy each morning, when the wake up, so that attitude follows them through out the day minus the smile. Folks are kinda like robots daily if you think about it, they just kinda go through the same motions day in and day out and in most cases, only focus on making it to the end of each week. Then the vicious cycle repeats itself every Monday morning.

I hear people complain all the time about stuff they should be thankful for, such as having to get up and go to work ( be thankful you have a job), dealing with their kids ( you made the choice to have kids and many people wish they could have kids, esp. healthy kids), the car they have, (even if it is old its more than what the folks on the bus and train have) , a nagging boss,( if you were at home without a job, you would not have one!) Not making enough money! (What ever you make, be thankful and if you want to make more, hatch a plan to better your training and education!) No man, (learn to be happy by ya dayum self! Your body language, attitude and persona go a long way and may contribute to you meeting a good man! ).

My dad used to tell me that 90 percent of what happens to you and where you are in life has to do with the choices and decisions ‘YOU’ made! 10 percent is the reality of life! If more of us believed this and applied ourselves more, we would see more smiles!

LOL Kimmie- LOL girl, you know I cannot have a serious face! I try all the time and it never works. I hardly ever get mad and I never yell or raise my voice, and sometimes this can be a hinderance for me like in the workplace, but luckily people know me so it’s cool. I get sad when (I perceive) someone is either yelling at me or raising their voice because I just don’t like it. Like when I hear people yelling at their kids or whatever I feel very uncomfortable because no one in my family yells or cusses kids out like that or whatever, so even at my age it’s still shocking.

For example, when I first graduated from Undergrad all of my jobs were fun, happy jobs like preschool teacher, ymca and boys and girls camp counselor and stuff like that. Well, in 1999 I got my master’s degree in Public Administration and I ended up taking a job in a Correctional Facility (prison) so that I could have a more “serious” job that required me to be more serious at work. So, I remember the Warden interviewing me and saying “ummm, ok I see you have an MPA now, but you currently work as a preschool teacher…are you sure you want to work in criminal justice”? I was like “yes”. So, he took a chance on me and I did great in that job for like 3 years, then it became too depressing lol so I got out.

Satified with the ad she submitted and 1 wk later received a call from a dude. The chick and dude spoke over the phone for two wk and decided to go out on first date. The arrived for their first date. The chick was very excited and nervous. Then the doorbell rung. The chick runs to the door opens it and to her surprise no one was there. She closes the door. 2 seconds later the doorbells rings again. She opens the door and doesn’t see anyone again. The chicks thinks it must me the neighborhood kids playing and closes the door. 1 second later the doorbell ring again. Angry the chick opens the door looks around and then down. There she sees a man with no arms and no legs laying on her doorstep.

Chick: Ummm, can I help you?

Dude: Yeah It’s me I’m here for our date!

Chick: Ummmm, I don’t mean to be rude but you are nothing like the man my ad requested.

Dude: Really? Well first you said you did not want a man to beat you. No arms! (check) Second you said you did not want a man to run out on you. No legs! (check)

Chick: YEAH BUT WHAT ABOUT THE THIRD REQUEST!!

"Longtime Lurker"

August 11th, 2009

@Page1908… I cannot explain why certain women act as they do, that is why I put the question out there to the ladies on the blog! Many men will tell you that they often speak to women and they don’t reciprocate, nor are the appreciative of his efforts! Some women have the attitude “He is supposed to do this or that”

I am naturally a very upbeat, social kid of person and many of my close friends are women. I have never had issues in meeting and dating women either, so I think I am delivering on my end!

It’s a weird situation when women don’t speak or don’t thank me for holding the door or elevator for them, but I will continue to do these things, because that is how I was raised!

So putting it back out there to the women on the blog, what is going on with some of your counterparts? Why do many women avoid greeting men in a professional manner and most of all, why do they not take initiative to speak first or perform some kind gesture for more men, even when they don’t know that man?

Why do most women feel that they are being “aggressive” if they take the first step in getting to know a man or taking initiative to put a smile on his face first? Why is it that more women are not doing more to make themselves stand out from the crowd vs. doing with every other woman is doing ( i.e. wanting for a man to approach them? ) This is so tired and played out to me! I will admit that there are times and places where a man needs to be a man, but there is also times where a woman needs to take some initiative on her own and show a man that she is confident, strong and will go after what she wants in life, including meeting men!

I often wonder do women have any idea that their success in dating or meeting and attracting a potential is solely based on their body language! From what I see on the daily, many will continue to find themselves alone and wonder why?

Guess what? Every woman (and every man too) is not out on the make all the time! We’re all not out on the hunt 24/7, okay?

Good Morning! I figured I’ve lingered long enough so I’ll post a comment today.

I agree with what a lot of you have said already, a smile can really turn a whole day around. I used to frown all the time and my mother would tell me that my face would get stuck that way, lol.
I started to smile more when strangers on the street would say things like, “smile it can’t be that bad.”

So now it’s really the little things that make me smile. Hearing my guy laugh makes me smile. Getting an unsolicited back rub or foot massage. Watching children play makes me smile. Listening to oldies on my ipod.God’s grace. All it really takes is a feel good moment, and it’ll elicit a smile every time.

I make him smile by telling jokes, surprising him with gifts, giving him compliments, and planning tailgate parties during football season(That’s for him as much as it is for me hahaha).

i went to a small club saturday night with some co-workers and found myself NOT smiling. i had to fix my face a couple of times so i wouldn’t seem so blah. there wasn’t any good lookin’ men in the house. none. i left an hour and a half later.

i did get a smile and a laugh in before i left. a friend from high school recognized me and we chatted it up a bit. it was good to see him and talk about old times. i was a freshmen and he was a senior when we first met. he saved the night from being a total waste.

And then sometimes people give you compliments – because it makes them feel better to put that energy into the world (or a specific person).

Good mid-morning to you all. I’m a newbie to the WD blog, and this post really got me thinking…so much so that I just had to comment. Fortunately, I’ve never been on a date with a guy with an aversion to smiling. I love to laugh, and that’s the key to keeping me interested. I’ve been told I have a great smile and that it’s one of my best features. So of course, I keep the smiles coming whenever I’m in social settings or on a date. Compliments are great…but they don’t always do the trick. Kindness makes me smile; seeing someone do something nice for others. If you’re a brother with a good heart, then you’re almost guaranteed to get a smile out of me anytime.

Catching up at work – vacation was GREAT. I didn’t want to come back.

On Topic – I usually make others smile by smiling at them. My guy says he doesn’t like to smile, but he’s always smiling. I’m silly at times so he can’t help it. It doesn’t take much to make me smile either. I can be pretty intense when something is on my mind, but the little things make me smile.

Raqi we watched The Heartbreak Kid. I asked my guy a few times if he felt like Ben Stiller when we go on road trips. The first two times he didn’t answer me, then on the third time he burst out laughing and told me no. Good thing because I sang 5 straight hours to the beach but only 3 on the way back :lol:

Why do many women avoid greeting men in a professional manner and most of all, why do they not take initiative to speak first or perform some kind gesture for more men, even when they don’t know that man?

Longtime Lurker – To be honest, why should we? I grew up in L.A. it’s not natural for me to speak to someone just because they are there. It’s not natural for me to speak first or perform random gestures. Not to say I never have, but I’m not in the practice of doing so.

And it doesn’t speak to my level of happiness just because I don’t. It’s all about comfort level.

"Longtime Lurker"

@Amazon, where you grew up has nothing to do with taking initiative!

There is an old saying that “the early bird catches the worm” and also “those who take initiative often end up ahead of the game!”

If you sit back and wait for others (namely men) to always approach you, then you are only going to meet a small percentage of the men that you are capable of meeting and the “quality” factor may not always be what it should! Just because you get approached by men often does not mean that you are attracting the “right” man! You have to take some initiative on your own to balance the tables of attracting that “right” man!

The same would go for a job, if you only wait for employers to contact you, without taking some initiative on your own, then you will in most cases not get the “right” job you truly want! The leftovers will call, but is that the job your truly want? We all know that the only person who wants a leftover is a dog!

I firmly believe that more women need to take initiative and make them stand out! The same goes for men! We live in a very competitive society, where you’re looks and your resume is not always good enough to make you stand out in a crowd. It takes “initiative” on your part, to make yourself stand out and win the prize! Sometimes you have to let go of the ego, rejection concerns, and self pride and humble yourself to do things that you are not used to doing to produce a different results! The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result! 90 percent of the women in America in my opinion are waiting for that man to initiate, greet and approach them, but the reality is that everyone won’t get approached and everyone won’t get married or have someone to date!

With that said, life is short and opportunities only exist to those who take initiative to seize the opportunity when it presents itself!

As for f you sit back and wait for others (namely men) to always approach you, then you are only going to meet a small percentage of the men that you are capable of meeting

That’s probably for the women who complain about not meeting men. I would never complain about such a thing. I speak to who I want to speak to period. I’ll strike up a conversation with folks, no problem. But I do not speak just for the sake of speaking. It’s not me nor does it has to be.

Most of the women on here seem pretty outgoing. Those that want husbands or significant others have them, those that don’t & want to chill are & those that want to meet people seem to get out & do just that. We’re doing just fine. I think most of us know in 2009 nobody is going to ride up on a white horse.

And those that are job-hunting are certainly not sitting back waiting on a job to just fall in their lap, in this bad economy!

You come on here complaining about what women DON’T do right in your little world, yet when someone calls you on it you claim it’s not personal and you don’t have any problems. You give off negetive energy and it radiates on this blog, look in the mirror! If you perfer women that are not American or you don’t like the way American women do things, that is your right.

the last man i approached in person was the married guy at work (didn’t know he was married). after his good morning short conversation with me, i felt the need to let him know that i was interested also.

giving him my number on a scratch piece of paper and waiting for his acceptance was not fun. lol. it felt good to get a text two mins later *what took you so long?* lol.

I liked the part where they allowed the potentials to get a view of where each of the opposite lives. I am a firm believer that everything about a person tells a story. Our houses and cars, the items in them and the how they are kept say a lot about who we are. As well as how we dress.

I also liked the way they had the pictures sketched how each thought the other looked based on their personality. The only downfall there was the drawings we only as good as the third party artist sketching them.

And speaking of smiling, the expressions that two of them made when they were given a chance to see how the other looked were priceless. I just knew they were not going to be a match based on their expressions although they were the two that seemed to get along the best in the dark.

@Beautiful, sometimes you have to take a few on the chin that is why it is called “the game” Don’t get in the game if you cannot take a few blows! Blows are not designed to hurt ya, but to make you stronger and better!

Men have been dealing with rejection since playing in the sandbox! We learn to deal with it and keep it moving! For some reason, women want equal opportunities as men and compete with men, but can’t handle rejection like men! Seem to be a double standard there somewhere!

You cannot seek to reap the full benefits of meeting a good man if you only want to put 30 percent into finding him! That’s like me letting one of my co-workers do all the work on a project, then me taking credit for it and getting the promotion! It takes effort on “both” parts to pass the interview and get the job!

@Beautiful, I wish you mad luck! Seems like at least you have a good starting point!

Just always remember what’s most important is what’s on the inside! Sometimes big things come in packages that may not be the most attractive package!

I once received $200 as a kid in a very small unattractive unwrapped box! I could have went for the large boxes under the tree as most kids do, but for some reason this particular Christmas morning, I chose to grab this box first!

My dad later explain to me that it was a test to get me ready for life! Every since that day, I have learned to not chase the attractive package and explore the small detail!

Dan – Please believe that should a situation arise where I must engage, I will not back down.

However, fighting typically means that there is an opponent, competitor if you will. When in truth, there is no competition. What’s mine is mine and no one can take it from me. So, really, the only struggle would be from within.

Why would I fight against myself?

Dan

Getting rejected by a woman is akin to:

- someone not letting you into the next lane while driving;

- having to stand in line during “peak” lunch time;

- stubbing your toe on the coner of the bed;

it’s a everyday occurrence, only the truly weak/disturbed let it affect anything beyond that moment.

It’s not about the “who”, it’s about aggressive pursuit of a goal.

As a type “A” dude, even I’ve amended the whole ‘let her come over’ mentality. If it’s something that I want in this life, I git it. I’m at it.

My interpretation of faith (as opposed to “what’s for me”) leads be to believe that my pursuit will be successful. If not for the specific, then the general.

You are absolutely right, the expressions can be priceless. Last week’s episode all 3 women picked the same man and all 3 walked away. It’s such a downer to actually see them walk out the front door and down that hill. But, I have laughed at that more than once!

To add to what I said earlier, often the most inconspicuous guy in the room is the man that offers the most value!

He is often overlooked by many women all chasing the same “5 dudes” He knows what he has to offer, but many times women don’t see him, because flash is not his character!

He is not the one to be forward often, nor does he approach often, but he knows deep down inside that he is a diamond in the rough!

A smart woman knows the little things a quality man possesses at a glance, without ever meeting him! It’s not his car, clothes, shoes or how big or small he is, it’s his conversation and demeanor, it’s his ideals and values. It’s his long-term game plan!

Smart men know when to approach and when not to! Smart men know when to engage and when not to! A smart woman should know when to approach and when not to and most of all, a smart woman should know when to take initiative and when to let a man take initiative!

One day an at home wife is alone and the doorbell rings.

She opens it to a guy, “Hi, is Tony home?”

The wife replies, “No, he went to the store, but you can wait here if you want.”

So they sit down and after a while of silence the friend says “You know Sara, you have the greatest breasts I have ever seen. I’d give you a hundred buck just to see one.”

Sara thinks about it for a second and figures, what the hell – a hundred bucks! She opens her robe and shows one to him for a few seconds. He promptly thanks her and throws a hundred bucks on the table. They sit there a while longer and guy then says “That was so amazing I’ve got to see both of them. I’ll give you another 100 dollars if I could just see the both of them together.”

Sara amazed by the offer sits and thinks a bit about it and thinks, heck, why not? So she opens her robe and gives Chris a nice long chance to cop a look.

A while later Tony arrives back home from the store. The wife goes up to him, “You know, your friend Chris came over.”

Tony thinks about it for a second and says, “Well did he drop off the 200 bucks he owes me?”

Afternoon everyone…I’ve been lurking for a minute, but I wanted to pop in and say heyyyyyyy to you guys, especially Sexy Cool, Mytwo, Mo, Page…lets see, Rell, For Real, W8, Magnum and Demi…Oh and Sassy, I read yestrdys blog and see that she lft for vacay!!!! I really really enjoyed myself and wanted to pop in to let you guys know!

I know I’m a day late on the subject, but I had a blast meeting everyone saturday evening…it was so nice to finally put names with a face, and Kimmie I know you weren’t there, but OMGoodness…that rum cake was delish…uhmm, can I put in an order in or sutin’…lol??? I brought a piece home and everyone who had a piece was asking for your recipe…I was like I don’t think she’ll give the recipe, but I’ll see about an order.

ON Topic: I’ve read you guys today and I can agree with most of your points! However, IMO…nothing says more about a perception (being the key word here) of a person and where they are in life than when you walk by and they smile and say hello…even if your not feeling your self that day, it tends to brighten yours…and how does the saying goes “even exchange (no matter what it is…a smile, a favor, money…etc.) ain’t grand larceny”! With that being said, I totally hear you ARed when you say that how one person feels or what ever the perception they give off has nothing to do with another. If you ain’t feel’n it, you ain’t feel’n it!!! So, jus’ keep it movin’….in the end all you can do is YOU, you don’t have control over other folks’ actions. Sometimes you just have to let it be and not take it personal.
