Smile, it's contagious.

I went out on Saturday night for the first time in a long time. My partner and I went to a bar to meet a few friends, have a drink, and just generally have a good time.

He introduced me to his friends; people I had heard a lot about but hadn't met yet. We had a fantastic night, laughing, talking and drinking away.

At one point in the evening, one of his female friends asked my partner what he loved best about me. He hadn't had a girlfriend in a long time before we got together, much preferring the single life, and this particular friend of his believed that he would never find someone to settle down with. So she wanted to know what was one of my major draw cards.

He told her: "It's her smile."

I already knew that this was his favourite thing about me, having asked him myself at some point in the early stages of our relationship; however it is always nice to hear it again.

Another one of his friends, the girl's boyfriend, responded with, "Well of course it is! With a smile like that, you'd be a fool to turn her away!"

Although my partner had already told me he loved it; however hearing that from an almost-stranger was wonderful. A great little ego-booster.

I, of course, said thank you, and the conversation continued.

Later that night, it was my turn to go and buy the drinks, and the barman told me the same thing - that I had a kick-arse smile.

I don't know about you, but it always makes my day when a stranger gives me a compliment. There is something so genuine about it. They didn't have to say anything. They aren't obliged like your friends and family are to help keep your spirits up or make you feel good about yourself. It is such a kind thing to do; to offer a perfect stranger a compliment.

It's Monday night now, and I'm still riding high off being complimented by people I don't really know at all.

I think we should all compliment people we don't know, as well as our family and friends. You never know, you might just make someone's day by a few simple nice words.
