    All coins have two sides. If I meet a female friend who is clearly down for a reason (no smile), then I will often suggest that she smiles. Not only does it have therapeutic value, but it can also open the door to conversation and perhaps valued alternative perspectives on the issue. I would do the same for a male friend.

    Of course I would not treat a total stranger (male or female) in the same manner.
