  •  this is an odd aspect of male psychology (7+ / 0-)

    that even though I keep seeing it in action I still have a hard time believing it is true

    basically it goes like this:  if a man looks at you and is aroused by you, he will persuade himself that you are aroused also

    if you are hot enough to make him hot, then there is an assumption that you are yourself hot... for him.

    i have seen this over and over and over again and although it makes no sense to me there must be some evolutionary hardwiring somewhere that makes it so.

    obviously not all men do this, but enough do that it is a "thing".  

    "she looked like she wanted it" actually has nothing to do with what the woman is thinking or feeling.  it is a misinterpretation of "when I looked at her +I+ wanted it so I assumed she did too.  how can she walk around looking like that and not be turned on all the time?"

    um, because she is not looking at herself?  and even if she were, she might not be turned on by her own self the same way you are?  especially if she is young and still not too sure what sex is all about?

    signed, TBM, who also developed early, was not completely successful at fighting men (and boys) off, and heard these comments directed at me more times that I can count, before I gained enough weight to make them all LEAVE ME ALONE

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
