To be honest, anytime a lady checks me out, whether she would be my type or not, I am flattered. About a year ago, I was walking into a store, and as I got onto the sidewalk out of the parking lot a car went by with two considerably younger females in it, and they honked the horn and catcalled me. It blew my mind, and I was walking on air for the next few days after that. So yeah, ignore those arseholes. Most guys appreciate it immensely.Miyenne said:So I was just out grocery shopping when at the deli counter I ended up waiting my turn behind two rather attractive men. Being a woman with a pulse, I checked them out.
A few isles later I ran into one. I gave him a once over again which he obviously noted, and he laughed. Not an awkward "Oh, she's checking me out, what do I do?" laugh or a "I'm flattered" laugh, but a derisive snort that said "Who does she think she is?". Just because I'm fat doesn't mean I can't find men attractive and make it known.
I was rather annoyed. Why be annoyed that someone finds you attractive? It's not like I grabbed his shirt and begged him to date me or sleep with me, I was just enjoying looking at him with no expectations whatsoever.
The other guy had given me a nice, warm smile and went on his way. He got it.
If I get hit on or checked out I usually just say thank you and that's that. If I even realise that's what's happening, as it's rather rare for me to be hit on.
So how do you guys handle situations like that?
