I'd appreciate responses from men more but anyone is welcome to comment. Figuring out how males operate has got to be one of the most difficult things on the planet -- for me, anyway. At first I thought he was flirting but then realized he may have just been being friendly towards me because he saw me often and recognized me (he's a line or fry cook and I go to his place of employment 2 times per week). He used to always smile and often wave at me, baring his teeth, but suddenly stopped. Note that he did not usually do this with other women, save for 2 rare occasssions thus far. Many other customers, who were arguably more attractive than me according to society's standards, would come into his line of sight, but he did not bat an eye, save for those 2 occasions. He also did this gesture in which he smiled at me, lips closed, and slowly nodded his head. I copied him. The only time he ever talked to me was when he said, "How are you?" months ago. I mirrored his gestures, which I believe made me look open to a chat. I have tried to subtly flirt by, for example, putting my hair to the side and exposing my neck in front of him. I've also given him quick glances, played with my hair, put on lipstick in front of him, et cetera. I cannot bring myself to talk to him. I am not sure I buy the "can't flirt or engage with customers" explanation because he was already doing that a bit. I'd be delighted to have sex with him, so I hope all is not lost. I was told by a co-worker that he does not speak English, but may have been lied to because I swear I heard him speak some recently, though almost his entire FB page is in Spanish. I think that, were I thin, I'd be much more likely to approach him myself. His listed interests on Facebook are of thin, glamourous women. Physical exercise is also an interest and we all know how most people view fat people and working out, right? Darn it if I am not tempted to just send him a nude photo but I don't know if he'd receive that well. He is young, most likely in his 20s. I know that Mexicans in general are quite fatphobic, though perhaps to not the same degree as Americans. I just don't want to be delusional and think THAT was flirting. Now he barely looks at me, if at all. I don't believe it's shyness because he has over 1,000 FB friends and seems to be relatively chatty at work. Sigh. Arturo, you are so fine, so gorgeous. I wish you'd talk to me. :eat2: :wubu: :kiss2: Sorry about the rant -- I have tried to post a variation of this on other sites but have gotten nowhere.
