Weirdness

Friday night I'm going to go have dinner with the english student, and yesterday I talked with her on the phone for a couple of hours.

One of the things I found odd is she actually acts interested in me and has been good at listening. I even managed to tell her about my thoughts on peak oil, overpopulation, and vegetarianism, and it felt like she was listening.

In previous relationships I felt like i was just obsessed with the other person and I didn't share much about myself. Though perhaps I lacked the confidence to share my inner worries.

Also I went to a party tonight and several people who hadn't seen me in some time commented that I'd lost a lot of weight and looked good. Though it did seem like one guy was alternating between looking up at my eyes and down toward my breasts.

Guys looking at your breasts is probably another sign that you look good; we tend to be stupid that way in general, but more so around attractive women, I suspect. :^p

(Do lesbian women stare at each other's boobs too? Or is it just straight guys, because breasts are such a fascinating novelty to guys?)

Can't speak for lesbians or others...but this bisexual woman does check out women physically and that includes breasts. Sometimes it is all but unavoidable, especially when said breasts are bigger than average or have an unusual shape (easier to assess when naked). But yeah, I look.

I don't think they stare as obviously while conversing with someone. Though it could be that where someone is look is just really obvious when they're only a few inches shorter than me. Most women are much shorter than me and so it's not quite as obvious, and I can't really tell where someone is looking if they're much taller than me.

*nods vigorously* No matter what the final outcome, I think it's really wonderful that you're getting to see what a healthy relationship can look like from the inside - being interested in each other, sharing with each other, being vulnerable with each other - it has to go both ways. I'm so happy for you!

I spent the night with her, and at one point where I was triggered and started crying a bit, she held me and was compasionate. So very unlike some of the other people I'd been involved with.
