How Many Dimples Do You Have?

Let's set the scene: I'm out with a friend for a postwork drink and toss my purse on the empty stool next to us. About 20 minutes later, the place fills up and I see a suited gentleman eying the seat. I pick up my bag, smile apologetically, and turn back to my friend. Easy enough?

That's what I thought, too, but then he sits down and makes some comment about my cute dimples. This wouldn't have been a bad pickup line . . . if I actually had dimples.

Formed by muscles that pull the skin inward at the edges of the mouth, these tiny dents are often complimented by doting parents but scowled at when they appear, years later, elsewhere on the body. Do you have any on your face?

When I was young, I had two prominent dimples, then when I was teenager I lost one and had only one on my right cheek. Now I have two again!

2 ... possibly 3. The cute/cool thing is that my sister and I have prominent dimples in the opposite cheeks, and the part of hour hair is on the opposite sides ... so we look like mirror images of each other.

I always wanted dimples, but I have none. I'm happy about it though :)

I didn't get blessed with having any dimples on my face, but I have dimples on my hips where the muscles attach weird. They're kind of hard to see unless I pull my leg up behind me though.

On my face, sadly, none. But, fron reading the posts above, I should watch out for my son - he has 3.

One on each cheek :D I must say, I love 'em, especially when I got compliments about them. :)

Two. One on each cheek (left one is shallow though -- it used to be deeper, just like the one on the right).

I used to have one, but no longer. Too bad, but I rarely smile widely anyway.
