Have you ever wondered what makes YOU attractive to the opposite sex?
Have you ever looked at a couple and thought "he is so hot - what the hell is he doing with her?" or even the other way around "what does she see in him, he is revolting?"
Sure - there is no doubt that good looks are attractive.
We all like beautiful things. But, when it comes to 'sexy' - I think it is more of an attitude. A state of mind. Being confident. Being happy. Keeping things simple and tasteful.
I have not always thought this way though. Especially in the clothing department. Sjoe!
About seven or eight years ago I was totally ridiculous. My toes curl with embarrassment as my mind flicks through the images. Some of the outfits I would wear on a night out would probably make Cher blush. Rahahah. Sure, I got attention from guys, but being young, you don't realise it is for all the wrong reasons.
Bottom line? I looked like a skank and they probably thought that they could press my nose and my legs would open (they didn't, but still - this is the image I projected) SIES! Hahahah!
I soon learnt that when you are showing cleavage - hide the pins (legs). When you are wearing a mini - hide the guns (boobs)!
Also, have you noticed how many polls there have been over the years where men are asked 'what is the sexiest thing a woman can wear?' and the most popular answers are....
- Jeans, white t-shirt and heels
- A smile
- My shirt
Anyway - back to sexy being a state of mind...
As I mentioned in my last blog - my hormones have been doing the happy dance lately. Every now and again when they don't like the 'song' playing - that old classic - "Red River by Pe Riod', they stop for a rest (my not so great days) but in general they are squeaking their stillettos on the 'dance floor' like there is no tomorrow!
I feel like I am walking a little taller. Smiling a little brighter. I have sex on the brain quite a lot too and I feel sexy. Could these happy and horny thoughts be beaming out my eyes and making me more attractive?
Last weekend while at breakfast with my best friend a guy came over to our table:
Guy: "Hi are you married? I couldn't see if you are married?"
Me: *Laughing & blushing* 'No I am not married"
Guy: "Good" and proceeds to hand me a till slip with his number and the words 'call me'
Me: *still laughing*
Guy: "Call me, I want to take you for dinner"
Me: "Umm ok"
Guy: "No seriously - call me. I want to take you out"
I also had a 'scene' with a Dad (hopefully single and not a married flirty pants) who was with his little girl in the shop at the petrol station:
SD (Single dad): "Excuse me"
SD: "Can I pay you a compliment?"
SD: "You have the cutest backside I have ever seen... in my life"
Me: *laughing & mentally thanking the heavens for True Religion Jeans* "Thank you!!"
Who needs to go out to clubs - you can meet people at the Wimpy and the petrol station! Not that anything further has happened with petrol station man but I have been in contact with Mr Call me Maybe.
On top of all that...
My ex (the one I was with for 10 years) is buzzing around me like a bee to honey and the foreigner I had a fling with in January is also still in 'You are the one for me mode' - am I loving it? HELL TO THE YES! Who wouldn't?
Start thinking sexy ladies! Because you are!
Here are some quotes from famous people about being sexy:
