So now a question for you, Bill. Why is it that you appear to be so hyper aware?
I seriously doubt that I'm much more aware than your average man. We all like it. Until recently, I employed dozens of attractive young females, because our restaurant's seating was mostly on the second floor... so waiting tables for me meant climbing 8 million stairs a day. Predominantly, young females were the only people who would keep the job. For many reasons, not the least of which was the fact that the restaurant was in a small town, I had an absolute rule against dating my employees. Like most small restaurant settings, as time goes by, people become more like a family of friends, rather than bothering with titles and whatnot. When you spend most of your waking hours with the same group of people, your work and social lives become intertwined. Few taboos in conversation are observed, as most everyone becomes comfortable, almost intimately connected.
The setting itself provided for excessive contact, contracted into a smaller time span than most venues offer, highlighting many of the different ways that people interact with each other. At times it was like a regular soap opera. While pretty much everyone became comfortable enough to discuss their most intimate relationships and hardships with family and whatnot, there remained no appropriate way for the employer to address the boobing without sounding like a perv... and though my employees would no doubt have laughed their asses off had I brought it up (some have, since :razz:); it wasn't a conversation I'd want repeated back to me at the coffee shop or the next town meeting, if you know what I mean. Though my partner and I discussed this, and other less appropriate subject matters privately, some things are simply inappropriate to bring up publicly.
So, I decided A2K would be the best place to bring it up and try to gain some insight into why some people are more prone to this type of behavior and what some motivations may be. Still, since I am not an anonymous poster here, I chose not to introduce the subject even here, because this is after all a public forum and I don't keep my membership a secret. So, once again, the curious questions got shelved for lack of an appropriate venue to discuss them.
Then, after the restaurants were permanently closed, a couple more boobing episodes renewed my curiosity and since I no longer have need to be hyper-concerned with my reputation; I thought I would ask. Whereas before; it was largely irrelevant if the incredibly sexy K or A found me attractive, this is not necessarily the case any more
which leads me to reevaluate old information and most certainly view new boobing episodes in a new light.
To answer to your question; "Why is it that you appear to be so hyper aware?" can be adequately summarized as: Two years of pretending to be completely unaware
wears on a human Male. :wink: Especially where uncommon beauties are concerned.
