A Smile Is Worth So Much More

676 words - 3 pages

When I asked my friends of a personal trait that best suits me, I received the same response from them all. The overwhelming feeling shared by each individual person showed how I looked in there eyes.

I cannot help it; it is just how we are. That may not be the real reason, but I do not know where I get it from.
     Being known as such a nice person also has its disadvantages on the dating scene also. I have no...
