Since losing this weight I've been getting attention from guys. Now this is something that has never really happened to me. But lately I've been on several dates and have been checked out while walking down the street.
I honestly don't know how to react sometimes. Like its totally awesome that I'm being noticed now. But in a way it weirds me out just because its something that hasn't happened.
Sadly the dates I've been on, none of the guys have been boyfriend worthy. Then again, I'm not quite sure I want a boyfriend at this point in my life. I kind of like being able to focus 100% on me. But on the other hand, I miss having the companionship. Its a tough internal battle. I guess we'll just wait and see if Mr. Right comes along. If there is such a thing. Lol
Now on to a funny story! Yesterday I was heading into the grocery store when the Salvation Army bell ringer asked me how my day was. I told him and as I continued into the store he said 'may I say you look rather good today'. I thanked him and continued walking with a huge grin on my face. I got what I needed and walked out of the store.
The guy stopped me and said 'I know this is straightforward, but can I get your number?'. I informed him I wasn't comfortable giving out my number, but I'd gladly exchange emails with him. He gave me his addy and we chatted for a bit. I told him that I had recently lost 75lbs and that this whole guys hitting on me was new to me. He the proceeded to say, 'wow, that's awesome. I used to weigh 395lbs before I went to prison'. I didn't know what to say, so I just told him I needed to get going and that I would be in touch. He told me I was beautiful and couldn't wait to hear from me.
I got back to my mom's car and lost it. I couldn't stop laughing. I had been hit on by a former inmate. I know people make mistakes and what not. But I have to draw the line at former inmates.
Needless to say, I won't be emailing him.
