So i made it to the gym tonight and was going about my workout. I spotted a very hot woman (26 years old or so) brunette, green eyes seriously checking me out. staring me up and down. Thank you wall to wall mirrors in the gym. so when i was going to another machine, she happened to be walking toward me and so i batted my eyes and smiled and asked how she was doing. she muttered 'ok' and turned red as a tomato and rushed past me and left. huh? she was the one checking me out. ok w/e. work out. work out. another woman did the same thing. a bit short, petite, mousy. staring at me hard. again, thank you gym mirrors. scenario repeats. i feign oblivion to her chekcing me out and smile and say hello and all of a sudden she is bashful and also blushes and runs off. what is this about?! i was focused on my workout and noticed that i was being oogled. i was nice and polite and friendly and said hello and this sends women running away? should i post this in women's issues or something? i wasn't some weird, gross guy hitting on them. simply being a cordial fellow and saying hello. it is my thought that is a woman was staring at me as openly as these women were, they might have enjoyed a polite and simple small talk routine. and women wonder why they are single? really? i can put up with a lot, but social ineptitude is not on that list.
