    It is said that people with a gap in their two front teeth are sexy and "cuter." What is your take?

    Some cultures think of the gap as a "beauty mark," while other cultures say the gap brings luck or wealth. Have you had an experience with a person who has the gap in their teeth? Were they just like the next guy or gal or did you find them more interesting or intriguing in some way?

    That's an interesting question, the kind of question when answered that will tell more about the answerer than the subject of the question.


    Yeah, If someone thinks Mike Tyson is sexy because of the gap in his teeth that's a person I do not wish to know. That would be a case of one person's sexy being another person's "What!!! you crazy girl?!!!!" (Not goin to the other gender....noooooo not goin there).

    I am bothered by the look when I see someone I don't know with a gap in their front teeth but I have to say if I know the person and like him/her it means nothing to me. If I know the person and don't like him/her it means nothing to me. It just bothers me when I see it - like I want to make it "right", like looking at a keyboard that's missing a key or a radio that's missing a knob. 

    That's my quirk about it, but to me it is nothing meaningful either way nor does it affect my opinion of the person be it sexy, healthy or wealthy. :-)

      Lol. You make me laugh, Taze. I've never thought of the gap as something that needs fixing, unless it is unusually wide. Okay, so we have one official "No" on the sexy thing. Ha!

    Yves....I'm gonna have to confess, never have I heard of these assumptions of people with a gap in their smile.  Not that it matters actually, even if I'd ever heard this, it wouldn't affect my reaction upon noticing a space between someone's 2 front teeth.
    I do definitely notice smiles.  It's always seemed to me a person's smile can be a big part of physical attraction or just the opposite.  Take this as you may but my immediate silent thought about a gap is  "Oh dear, that's someone who should have had braces."  Honestly, I have a quick flash of "Alfalfa" from the "Our Gang" old films...LOL 
    On the other hand, it can add some cuteness to a person.  It depends on all the other features.  I don't know that it may bring "wealth or luck."  The only wive's tales I've ever heard about anything of this nature is in terms of "birth marks."  I do recall being told that a certain type of birth mark means.....this or that. It's all very fascinating despite whether or not it's valid.
    The man in the photo (ex-husband of Heidi Klum) ....is strangely attractive(SEXY) despite his facial scarring and smile gap.  But I'm pretty sure he acquired his wealth via his musical talents!! LOL 
    At the moment, I can recall only knowing 2 people with a visible front teeth gap.....both females.  Neither were unusually wealthy or lucky, nor more intriguing.  Fun things to think about !!   Wishing you all the BEST in 2017!   Paula

      Hi Paula...I mentioned the luck & wealth thing as a fun aside. But the sexy thing is my main focus. I am learning that the gap is seen as something to fix. Yet, I've always liked gaps. In my mind, it is actually kind of sexy. Call me crazy. Lol.
