I'm terrible at smiling. I used to practice in front of a mirror so I could get it right back when I actually went out and encountered people, because you never know when you'd be expected to smile and not have time to prepare.
It's not that I can't do it naturally, it's just that my natural smile is this crooked thin-lipped expression that apparently doesn't really look like a smile is supposed to look. Photographers for school and stuff would always get frustrated and yell at me for the weird expression.
Smiling the right way takes a lot of effort and is really straining to the face if you don't practice regularly. I try to avoid smiling entirely when I can, because my normal smile just gets the wrong kind of attention and a proper smile requires so much preparation -worse so if there's no mirror nearby to double check. I hate the word cheese.
>>120796787 Oh but I'm really good at faking smiles, that and fake laughing is my forte. You can go a whole conversation without really having to listen to the other persons stupid bullshit if you just know when to time your smile/laugh.
Master that and the ever important ''mhm'' and you will soon be considered a good listener without having to do all that pesky listening.
