Apparantly, it's suddenly the... IN thing to do to pick up on me while at work.

I don't consider myself attractive, really. I don't consider myself Quasimodoesque, either, just kind of always... there. I'm the person that you would love to have as a friend, but in a relationship? I'm just not used to people that are not drunk asking me what my sign is, and often think of myself as quite... asexual. I haven't even had a crush on someone in egads... dunno how long.

but anyhoo. three times in the last two days, i've had people hit on me. all of them were very extremely awkward. two of them were WOMEN.

First was when I came into work yesterday, and went to the little girls room en route to the breakroom. A woman in there sized me up and smiled as we were washing hands. She read my name tag and introduced herself. She asked what kind of music I like, and have I ever heard of *insert random music genre i have not heard of*? Well, I have a very pretty name, she says, and maybe we can hang out sometime? She smiled as she tossed her paper towel out and left.

Second was today, a woman who was probably about 10 or 15 years my senior. Whenever I would respond to one of her questions, she would grin, glance at my breasts, and reply in a deeper, slightly sultry voice. I was busy helping someone else at the time, so I directed her where she needed to go. She asked, as she looked me up and down, if there may be .. .SOMEone.. that can help her with printers? I said "certainly. I need to get something from lock up for a customer, so either I can meet you over there in a few moments, or I can see if Igor is available...." She grinned and said "Okay, so I will meet.... YOU... over in the printers? mmmm, yes." I tried like mad to get Igor to go over there, as I felt more than a tad uncomfortable. He asked if he could help, she replied no, that she was waiting for me, and only I could help her. Made me feel good that she said she thought I was 18. (or maybe this should had disturbed me more?)

Third was a couple of odd men - probably mid 40's or 50's - that came in late this evening. I was nice and joking with them, did a special order to get them what they needed that we didn't have in the store, rang them up for everything else. In doing the order, he mentioned that he stopped smoking and almost never drinks anymore, and I replied that I quit eating sugar and rarely drink anymore. While they were leaving, they kept saying about how now that they know where I am, they need to come back occasionally to 'bug me' and 'give me a hard time'... leaving, they started saying something about sex under their breaths, giggling like hyenas and saying something about me and nonny.

So, although it was on the disturbing side, it was at least a slight boost to the ego. As I said, it's been awhile, it has. Actually, it's been so long that I think that when someone I find attractive hits on me, I almost think it's a joke. The older I get, the less I like pretty boys, I suppose.

Anyhoo. I'm rambling.

The End.

Well go you. 2 women hitting on you. What an EGO boost. I love it when it happens to me. Men. Women. All of it makes me feel more attractive.

Don't worry about not having really "LOOKED" at anyone in a while. We all go through stages of not looking and BAM the RIGHT ONE hits us. That is how it happened to me...but also the RIGHT ONES for me end up being A$$holes.

Hope you have a great weekend!

i agree, it would have been better, had the whole situation not been so... awkward.

months have passed, and i still feel asexual. i'm just.. here. which is fine, i have things i need to take care of before i can even THINK about being in a relationship. maybe in a few months...

You sezzy sezzy thing! ^_~

I guess those two ladies need to tune up their "gaydar", they must be getting false readings.

I've had to deal with that before - you know, the whole long-haired-artist thing, some people assume you must 'butter your bread on the wrong side'.

ha ha! it's funny, though, whenever i go to gay or lesbian bars, or even to places like Pride, i NEVER get hit on by women. the only place that ever happens is at work.

maybe they think that a girl that knows her stuff about electronics...

wow. reminds me of the time when I was on the bus and a blind person was trying to pick me up, because I have soft hands.

ha ha, that reminds me of when I was trying to help a blind person at school the other day, and was VERY loudly trying to tell him where to walk so that he could get inside a building, when it turned out he was headed somewhere else completely.

I felt pretty dumb. (and not just because I was speaking LOUDLY to a BLIND person, like they do in sitcoms.)

They've been aubkabobmatized.

Besides, you're selling yourself short if you don't think you're attractive.

aww, you're making me blush!!!

something odd happened in the last year: i stopped wearing makeup and stopped really busting my ass in order to paint myself into something that i'm not. if they're going to like me, damnit, they're going to like me for ME. no more losing weight because i'll look better. no more trying to fit to society's wishlist.

i'm comfortable with me (though i want to drop weight due to health reasons) and where i am going and who i am. if someone is going to like me, dagnabbit, they need to discover me when i AM being me, not putting on a facade.

I was hit on by a woman the other day. But it's just not in my mindset to think that a woman would hit on me, so I was totally confused, and then shocked. She started laughing really hard when I realized she was hitting on me and exclaimed "Oh!....OH!"

and then wanted nothing more than to run away.

hee hee. part of me WANTS to be hit on by women. pretty much the only time that i was ever hit on by ATTRACTIVE women was when i had my short blonde spiked hair. apparently short red hair doesn't have quite the same effect on the lesbians ;)
