Let’s all be honest we love attention, especially when it comes from the opposite sex, I mean who wouldn’t? Just the fact that someone finds us attractive stimulates our self-esteem and ego through the roof and moistens panties. Attention and sex are the main reasons why men get haircuts, clean up, dress fly and pretty much breathe. And why women wear club clothes to work. Whether it’s subtle like a coy smile, a compliment or full blown, like damn ma, I’m trying to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Unexpected but wanted attention can have us feeling ourselves like Pee Wee Herman.
And there really is nothing wrong with feeling ourselves within reason of course. A compliment could be the assurance we need to know that we still “got it”. But may also have some people dressing 20 years younger like Mariah Carey going on a shopping spree at Forever 21. But having said there are people (attention whores) that purposely go out of their way to fish for attention like Rihanna at a Meek Mill concert from the opposite sex. You’ve seen them, the chick at the club wearing 3 coke bottle tops and dental floss covered by something shear, dry humping and waxing the floor like Danielson. That dude that wears a three-piece suit that he went home to change into after work to happy hour, with a pocket square and shades.
Hell to keep it one hundred thousand trillion, I’m not going to act like I never fished for a compliment before. In the past I can admit to wearing something, doing something or saying something that I knew at the end of the night would allow me perform an oral exam on a woman patient. So again I’m not above reproach since I’ve been guilty of doing this to.
So the question is, what, if anything, have you done, or currently do, to gain the opposite sex’s attention?
Talk to me, I’ll talk back.
