Please read this other post before commenting to gain clarity on my gender-neutral position on human behavior.] —– A while back I was on a coaching call with a woman who happens to be smart, successful and beautiful. Granted, knowing how “approach anxiety” has a death grip on most mortal men, it’s not even like I was expecting to witness guys stopping bikini-clad hotties and getting their numbers.
We were actively discussing creative ways she might encourage the kind of man she deserves to introduce himself, start a conversation and sweep her off of her feet. The odds of seeing a jaguar in the wild in Florida are probably greater than that.
Do you agree that we don’t even notice each other anymore? This may shock you, given what you’ve just read, but did you know that women are probably noticing YOU all the time?
Or is it that we’re simply a lot more subtle about it, whether that be due to sophistication or plain old fear? Do you see men admiring women all the time where you live? They’re even sending you signals that are clear as a bell.
At least in principle we understand all that stuff. Time after time dudes were strolling by fantastically hot women with virtually nothing on, apparently without even having noticed.
But by God, these guys were seriously NOT LOOKING at women. To be sure, in case you’re wondering the women weren’t stealing a glimpse of a guy here and there either.
And indeed, as people tuned in to their headphones they tuned out all else around them, including other humans. We type at each other on Facebook and Twitter, look at the pictures and watch the videos. Let me be the first to raise my hand and admit that I most certainly pick up the phone less often and attend fewer social gatherings these days.
Men have been making it a point to stop and admire women they happen to see when they’re out and about since the dawn of recorded time. At each stop I made it a point to stop and observe what happened whenever men and women were in close proximity to each other. They weren’t even bothering to look at them…at all.Whether it’s an eye gnat, soap, or even some dust, no one wants anything in their eyes that shouldn’t be there.And if it's something that happens to not wan…Netflix is kind of like a magician. Or your best friend who also happens to be a magician.Likewise, every #MGTOW battle cry and every stat you guys use to drive your confirmation bias has already been brought up and respectfully responded to (most of which several times).Going forward, I’ll only be approving well-articulated comments that add something new to the conversation.So nobody is suggesting we revert to real, genuine sexual harassment. In my completely random opinion—which is pure conjecture, mind you—I can think of at least three factors that may be conspiring here.1) Fear Of Seeming Predatory The subtle (or at times blatant) message presented to men in the 21st century is that any display of sexual interest in a woman is considered “sexual harassment”.These people weren’t just not noticing each other, they weren’t even trying.They weren’t even tuned in to the “hottie radar” frequency.Most people need something to break up the monotony of a long work day, and is there anything more cathartic than reading a poem?Lately, I've gotten into the routine of reading poems during my lunch break, and it has been a great way to step back fr…There are few things as unpleasant as sustaining some insult or injury to our precious eyes.
