Male attention

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Okay, preface to say: I am VERY happily married.

That said, I've been noticing that I've been attracting attention lately. Male attention. I'm not used to this, I've been very heavy for so many years, and while you're heavy you're invisible. People look right through you.

Now, I'm garnering appreciative glances. I go for my walks and men offer me rides (no thank you, I'm out here exercising, lol!). Guys smile at me, and try to strike up a conversation, even flirt a little.

I have to say, I find the attention flattering. I like being appreciated, I like when someone thinks I look cute. Does this make me shallow?

I've felt like I've had to tone down my natural friendliness...smiles and direct looks are being misinterpreted as flirting. I've noticed that beautiful women are not friendly when out and about and always thought that was because they're stuck up, but now I think I know why. This whole thing is new to me, it's been so long since I've been in this situation! I'm learning...

Wow, I hope this post doesn't make me sound conceited, it's not that I think I'm so hot or anything. I'm really not! Hope to be one day, though...

But it's a motivator to keep going! I like this, and don't want to ever go back to being invisible again!!!

    Definitely enjoy the attention. I sometimes wonder if I keep myself fat to insulate myself from it. You deserve it!

    No it does not make you sound conceited and it is after all what you have been experiencing. I would hope that your husband has taken notice also. If not someone needs to get the frying pan out and hit him over the head!

Congrats on the 100+ weight loss and your renaissance lady photo in your galley will turn a male's head. So enjoy you new found attention and keep it all in perspective!

At least that is this male's point of view.
