Isn’t it Strange

It’s been talked about a jillion times. But that’s not going to stop me from talking about it.

Since I started dating Jenna, I’ve been overtly hit on by three other women. Keep in mind that I don’t go to bars or clubs. Ever.

By overtly, I mean phrases like “So, would you like to go out.” Not subtle.

The first was a sales gal who was trying to sell me stuff, so you could potentially chalk that up to “trying to make the sale.” Although it was pretty overt, like “Let’s go out drinking on Saturday.”

The most recent was a girl from school. I’ve seen her and been in classes with her for the last 6 years, but I’d never spoken to her before. We chatted for about 15 minutes, and then she asked me out.

I really don’t feel like I’m behaving any differently than I was before. I don’t walk around with a particularly “confident” air, I don’t think.

Jenna thinks it’s because I no longer “size up” a girl to see if she’s dateable when I meet girls now… and girls can sense that I haven’t made a “judgment.”

The wise Judd once told me “shy is a %@#$ cologne” and he was right. But what changed, and how did I not notice it?

    Some women like a challenge and what greater challenge than to steal another woman’s man? Women can smell a ‘taken’ man a mile away.

    “I’ve been overtly hit on by three other women.” By Women, you mean men, right?

    Jenna’s probably right. Women know these things. I’ve always loved you Incredipete.

    Don’t listen to NGD, he’s just jealous. And by ‘jealous’ I mean he’s upset that you aren’t responding to HIS flirting.

    When you’re single, forget getting so much as a smile; when you’re attached, you’ll get offers. There probably IS a difference in the way you present yourself…you just may not be aware of it…but this phenomenon can also be chalked up to “one more example of the Universe’s sick, twisted sense of humor.”
