You give yourself happniness. :)

but there is a very simple rule in modern society: if your greed is more than what you can afford, you will not be happy. ...Talking about greed, sometimes it is not out of ourselves, but imposed on ourselves. Take for example, the average price of the HDB flats in Singapore for $300,000. Certainly this forced greed is beyond what most people can afford here. So i can understand why they are not happy and complain a lot.

Sorry, know this list is a joke, but seriously, I DO think men tend to be happier souls. Not sure why, really I'm not. Perhaps...(generalization coming...).....they don't agonize over every look, word etc.

I honestly think that we women do that more than you guys. Sort of....'What'd he mean by THAT word?'.....'Why doesn't he get back to me NOW?'.....and one of the worst ones....'Is he getting that because he's a man?'.....(mind you, this last is sometimes true, worst luck)....

women tend to be more emotional and sentimental. All these emotional things in the world actually end up nothing, just another pass. So men being less emotional may be happier in this aspect. (WTH care about it?!)

however, granted men are happier, we live shorter than women. :-|
so if we are not happier, then we live even more shorter. :?
