My Almost Sexist Take On Lone Wolf Males
Guys get fooled easily, I think. It is hopeful thinking. It happens when you are with your girl/woman/wife/partner--whatever. You've been with her for a while. You are comfortable. You like having her on your arm (or you on hers--whatever). The point is, some female (how's that?) will subtly smile at you as you walk by. It is just the hint of a smile, but something else, the look in her eye. It is that she actually makes eye contact with you--yes, that's it--eye contact without a smirk.
And you believe it.
Attention for women is a given. They can't walk down the street without getting eyeballed, catcalled--all the things they hate. They understand that if they make eye contact in a bar, they are likely to be approached. Attention is like oxygen for them--it is always available as long as they breathe.
I'm not saying they get attention from the "right" man. Don't get me wrong.
But guys--well, they need oxygen, too, but life is like you are walking around holding your breath when you are dying to breathe. So when at gal (how's that?) smiles or even looks you in the eye. . . .
A guy at a bar with his buddies:
"Did you see that?!? See that girl? She just smiled at me!"
"No, man, I'm not kidding. I think she likes me!"
That's all it takes. Trust me. Suddenly the guy is gulping air like a guppy.
So you're walking with your gal on a Sunday afternoon, and a pretty girl gives you that ever-so-faint smile as she looks you in the eye, and you think, "Man. . . ."
Try it walking around by yourself first. I promise you, nobody is going to look you in the eye. You are dangerous, dude, like a wounded and starving bobcat looking for prey. Women will give you a lot of room.
If you've got someone on your arm, just breathe. There is plenty of life-sustaining oxygen right there. That other thing, that's all nitrogen.
