I'm confused with the word "Seem"

You seem happy.
You seem to be happy.

What's different between them?
Thanks in advance.

@YiPing,
Seem means giving impression or expressing something.
Both sentence, "You seem happy" and "You seem to be happy" are meaning the same. But, "You seem to be happy" is the perfect sentence.
Thanks.

@serenamikell,
You are obviously not a native speaker of English. You have no business giving English-language learners advice on the English language.

@YiPing,
There is no difference in the two sentences. Either one is acceptable.
