In 2011 the University Of British Columbia published a study which discovered that women find happy men "significantly less attractive." Well, they exaggerated a bit. Essentially they found that the average woman finds a man who is smiling less attractive than a man displaying a proud and powerful, or moody and ashamed facial expression.
Finally, a study proves that those dudes who walk around smiling all the time are just fucking creepy. Well, the study doesn't prove that really but it's what I chose to take from it. Beyond my own opinions on the subject:
"Lead researcher Professor Jessica Tracy said: 'While showing a happy face is considered essential to friendly social interactions, including those involving sexual attraction - few studies have actually examined whether a smile is, in fact, attractive."

Note to my game, smiling = less play.
Interestingly enough, the study found that men were more attracted to women who smile. I guess that makes sense since we tend to confuse friendliness for sluttiness (wishful thinking?). And if there's one thing men universally love; it's sluts. Again, my reasoning is horrible. Still, confidence is key so I doubt the study intended to influence men to look completely miserable to appear more attractive. This is not of much concern to me as I assume any competent male would understand how to apply what the study found.
The problem I have with the study is that there are different types of smiles. Did the study take the different types into account? Which types were they showing the participants? You could sit there and define hundreds of types. Instead, lets put them all under two categories: Charming, and Creepy.
|Someone should kill this guy.|
|Someone probably got killed by this guy.|
How was this study conducted you ask? Well since you were too lazy to click the link I provided, I'll spare you the chore:
"More than 1,000 adult participants rated the sexual attractiveness of hundreds of images of the opposite sex. These photos included universal displays of happiness (broad smiles), pride (raised heads, puffed-up chests) and shame (lowered heads, averted eyes)."
Easy enough, lets run our own experiment.
Guys, I made it so you can take part in this experiment as well, by using a man so attractive it's actually perfectly normal to find him attractive without being homosexual. It's actually impossible not to find him attractive (there are studies being conducted as we speak to prove this).
You know those days when you just feel good for no reason? You wake up on the right side of bed, the weather agrees with you, your clothing choices agree with you, everyone seems to be delighted by your presence, and it seems like no matter what you do everything keeps happening in your favor? That's the kind of day God was having when he made this man.
Ladies and gentlemen: Brad Pitt

I leave it to you. Before you decide to stop smiling around the women you want to sleep with, answer this final question with all honesty:
Which Pitt would you rather screw?
