I noticed something lately …
And I’m not sure what it means … if anything.
Back in the old days … you know, any time two months ago and earlier …
When I was out and about … it seemed like women were the ones looking at me … noticing me … maybe reading me, maybe not, who knows, but definitely noticing me, and looking at me, even if just briefly …
Guys … rarely ever looked at my face … their looks were neck on down.
But I’ve been out and about a great deal the last several weeks …
And something I’ve noticed is really strange …
Lately, women rarely, if ever, look at me.
No eye contact.
I’m completely unnoticed.
Men on the other hand,
Are attempting eye contact with me more and more frequently.
I can’t figure out what any of this means.
At first I was thinking maybe the women weren’t looking at me to be nice, that they were reading me, but were not going to stare …
While the men sensed something was odd … and where trying to stare me down to figure it out.
But then I thought, maybe I’m at the point of presentation, where I’ve reduced my tells enough that they don’t pick up that I might be something they’d be curious to look at … so they pay no attention to me when they’ve got other, more important things going on … like holiday shoping.
Whereas guys … maybe that whole eye contact thing some are tossing at me … is an interest indicator of some sort. Maybe they are trying to engage an opportunity for communication.
I don’t know.
But I’m not complaining …
I totally dig the change.
I hope it lasts.
