Oh, I'd love a reasonable amount of male attention! What I meant by awkward is that while I certainly hope I look better, I mostly hear it from random female co-workers, and there's the whole "what are you doing?" "Counting calories" discussion, which...I'll get it down to an elevator pitch on a little while, I'm sure. The guy who complimented me last night was, I think, worried he would seem slimy or unprofessional for paying attention to a coworker's body. He's friendly and we all joke around a lot, and I think he worries about staying on the right side of the line with his mostly female colleagues and our fundamentalist Christian management. But yeah, I'd like it if a cute single guy were interested.
What's weird for me is that my close friends, who (I do think this is a factor) are not at their ideal weights, do not ever say anything to me and in fact seem to be annoyed with me lately.
