Three cheery smiles from three different ladies this morning while out walking. More than makes up for the majority who just walk on by, head down.

Ugh! If a man not known to me smiles at me on a train or in the street, I find it incredibly creepy and deeply uncomfortable. He should keep himself to himself. What is wrong with simply maintaining a polite and private distance? We are taught, "A Gentleman never stares at a Lady in the street" and I think that is safest. It is a strict rule in society that, in meeting outside the home, it is the lady who recognizes the gentleman first, never the other way around.

Ha Jennifer. Exactly, and in each case this morning, it was the lady who smiled first!

I'd forgotten that my task as a woman is to smile whenever I am in public. Sorry, will endeavour to forget my own troubles in future and smile for you next time!

A smile costs nothing. Trouble is, people these days have either forgotten how to smile or have been brought up not to.

I'm with Jo. The thing is this, Billy. If a woman who is a stranger made some expression toward you in the street, it is certainly because she was trying to defuse an offensive situation developing further because of something you did first. I am not a feminist, but merely stating fact. In future, carry a mirror with you and keep your pervy stares to yourself.

Why are you focusing on women's smiles rather than smiles and smilers in general?

I find it creepy and offensive when women smile at me. Why can't they keep their pervy stares to themselves. I am a man, not a piece of meat!

My original post was meant to be a positive statement and not pervy in any way. I am happy to receive a smile from anyone, shop assistants, people in the street, male or female etc etc. It just so happened that yesterday morning they were all from females.
