My emotions lately seem to be boiled down to a few basics:  pissed, annoyed, tired, or worried.  Good times!  The day above was definitely pissed – and so again I was left with the feeling of having no control over my own sex appeal. 

I realized this past week one of the things that bothers me so much about this whole “getting hit on” conundrum…First, it makes you uncomfortable – even the nicest least aggressive of compliments is quite frankly weird and uncomfortable, and immediately makes you feel like a sex object rarther than a person.  This is not a good way to feel.  Secondly, when you get hit on consistently at odd times (times you personally think you do not look your best – or worse – do not feel your best – like when you are sick, or angry, or skipped washing your hair) then it further takes the control away from you. 

Not only are you being subjected to someone’s comments and opinions about you (positive or otherwise) but you also have to face the fact that you obviously aren’t even in control of whatever it is they are finding appealing about you…because you think you look terrible…and that day that you dressed up and were feeling really good?  Nobody said anything to you THAT day.  It’s very frustrating. 

I hope everyone is heading into a great weekend.  I’m planning a lot of writing, but I’ll be honest I feel REALLY tired right now…so we’ll see what actually happens.

    Maybe it’s the whole “taboo” thing. We want what we can’t have. See a hot woman walking down the street, we turn our heads. Hot woman who looks so pissed off her eyes could burn a hole in your chest, we hit on her.

    I don’t know. Just throwing out ideas.

    As for me, well, I’m the creepy guy that looks at you and doesn’t say anything. I don’t take rejection well, so I’ve never been brave enough to try hitting on a woman. I’d be lucky if she said no and kept going because I’m more likely to make her laugh so hard she pees her pants.

    TK42ONE: Maybe…maybe. You’re probably better off being the creepy guy that doesn’t say anything (though I doubt that is who you really are) as I generally mind those guys less than the ones that force their ways into my world…

    Is that Adam-with-sunglasses hitting on you? I thought you’d be ok with something like that. :P

    Paul: Yeah, Adam does occasionally dress up and drive a cab and hit on me while I walk…it’s a nice uplifter for when I’m feeling down :)
