The problem with being brought up by teenage boys

... is that even now, a dozen odd years later, I find myself eyeing more women than men.

Bah. Guys, some of you read this blog. Know that you have a lot to answer for!

I thought I was the weird one. Being with my brother all these years, I check out women more than I do men.

Same pinch. Most of my friends and cousins being boys, I do the same. Glad that I have company ;)

The god can't be wrong....

The spouse and I both admire pretty women - but I don't think he trained me to. I guess women are generally much easier on the eye:)

And I thought I had a unique problem! But women are more put-together and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I check out women too! May be being brought up with boys has a lot to do with it ..

- Well count me in :)
- the effect of being around a bunch of boys all my life
- but then I don't let an opportunity to giggle with the gals go by either ;b

Aathira said...

Me too... husband and I are happy to compare notes on pretty hot females!

I think that has got to do with me being around my bunch of guy friends! And, as a result, the husband doesn't complain...

Sue said...

Goodness! I had no idea so many of you were in the same place.

Jidhu -- What?

Dipali -- True, but it's only the most exceptional male that makes me go, "Naaaice" whereas only reasonably attractive women have me turning my head. Hm. Food for thought.

Gayatri -- I don't much giggle with girls but that's mainly because I don't much get the chance!

Aathira -- Vicky rarely notices these women (unless they're driving bikes in which case he pays them far too much attention) and he prefers me to keep my opinions to myself. :)

Sunny, darling, it's a common affliction (if in fact it is an affliction). The answer lies not in the fact that you were brought up by teenage boys (I was brought up by stern parents and elegant grandparents) but that women are *so* much more watchable. Trust me, with the arrival of spring, I've not been able to take my eyes off the gorgeous undergrads on campus. I will miss the ease and variety with which women dress in the US once I go back home :-(

(Average male clothing in the US, on the other hand, is rephrehensible)

Rimi said...

In other words, Dipali has nailed it. And you're right, the male of the species has to be *exceptional* to catch my eye, but just an averagely attractive woman, or just a well-dressed woman, will turn my head every time.

tua said...

Agree with Rimi, on all counts:-)

I do the same. And the aesthetic contrasts are even more pronounced I think once clothes are OFF. (now that does mean what it seems to mean)

Amrita said...

Ahahahah!! One more for the club!

Mona said...

um, i think all women do it. what? women are aesthetically nicer to look at!
here, after ages, loving the new look!

Just Like That said...

me toooooo!!!!
After all, so much more to gaze at!;-)
But then, I'm rarely attracted by male 'peacocks' ... prefer the plainer variety that's more resourceful, than the ones merely strutting around showing their feathers.

The thing is,
a)its a healthier thing to do
b)most men in Delhi- and I'm guessing in all other cities- are shite to look at (believe me I've tried) and
c)I KNOW for a fact that you quite enjoy it :)
That said, I think a bunch of us boys from JU has involuntarily raised many of our female friends to cast cool appraising looks at other women. We certainly didn't know what it was that we were doing at the time...
