Married, Yet Still a Woman

This might be a bit of a controversial post, but I'm ok with that. I've gotta get something out there and see if I'm the only one who thinks this way.

This weekend was my company holiday party. So, Ashley and I (Jimmy basically didn't want to come, which I'm ok with)drove to the Country Club dressed to the 9's in our cocktail attire ready for some free food and a good time.

The receptionist for my building came into the party accompanied by her son. Her son happens to be good looking, 27 ish and a marine to boot. They didn't sit at our table, but they sat at one near us. I looked over and caught the good looking marine man looking at us, so I smiled at him and just shrugged it off.

Today, back at work the office is a buzz about the Christmas Party. When I walked in, the receptionist told me that her son thought I was "absolutely breathe taking" and was very disappointed when she told him I'm married.

This information totally made my day. Is it just me or is it really nice to hear that other men (especially good looking ones) think you are attractive? I think it might just be me, because anyone I've shared info like this in the past quickly proceeds to tell me that I'm married. I am? No way, thanks for the info!

Just because I'm married doesn't mean I'm dead. I am after all still a woman. And what woman doesn't like to hear that someone thinks she is " breathe taking" ?

This doesn't mean that my husband doesn't tell me nice things, but can you ever be given too many compliments? This also doesn't mean that I don't think my husband is totally hot, because he is. Hotter than the marine man in my opinion. It just means that I like to be told someone thinks I'm attractive just as much as the next person.

I see no wrong in being excited about my compliment. Am I alone on this one? Other married women out there, what do you think?

i agree with you! it means even more so to hear it from another man after you had children. I do love my husband and I am married I know that, but it's nice that there are others out there that think that i am still attractive. this way i think it will keep Craig on his toes..

I'm totally with you and Jody on this one, Liz. I'd be excited, too.

I don't see anything wrong with being flattered by such a nice complement like that! Just because someone says something flattering about you doesn't mean you love your husband any less!
