Maybe we are just blind to other people, because of our boundries? Not sure. I do think that once I decided to 180, I started noticing other men seeing me in a way the man I was with never saw me. It helped in giving me the confidence I needed to walk away.
The DAY found out -- in fact, only a mere few hours beforehand -- a man nearly tripped over himself trying to get near me to tell me he loved the flower in my hair. I was taken back. I hadn't been hit on so blatantly in YEARS! It was almost as if there was some cosmic force that knew what was coming.
Since then, I'm more aware...there's plenty of attention to be had!!!! If I wanted it, that is.
I really just want my husband's attention, and hurt inside knowing he gave it away.
Another weird one was the produce guy at my local grocery offering his "counseling" services.
Even a letter carrier! This guy even at one point grabbed my hand to see if I was wearing a wedding band yet. Crazy!
I believe they somehow sense our vulnerabilities. What else could it be?
