Not jealous of your weight loss per se - no, jealous because he thinks other men are looking at you?
I can't figure out if it's just my DH, if he's imagining men looking at me with lust in their eyes (his words, not mine!), or what - because I just don't see it. I see myself as attractive, but I'm nearly 59 and still rather chubby, albeit shapely. So when I go running to a campground bathroom in my sleepwear (DH's baggy boxer shorts and an oversized long-sleeved T shirt), I don't see any men looking at me in any kind of way, other than to say good morning. DH insists that various men were looking at me and that "he knows lust when he sees it." (Again, his words.)
Am I just missing something? I have a very meager dating history, so I don't think I'm so super attractive. It hasn't been as if men were chasing me all my life, you know?
Or is my DH imagining this because HE thinks I'm so hot? (which, of course, is wonderful, but is he just seeing what he wants to see?)
I'm confused, and I know this is probably a weird blog, but I really need some outside feedback! Thanks!
