I have a guy "friend" I see often when I travel to his area. He's always very sweet and nice to me, and even said once that if I lived closer, he would like to be my boyfriend. What I've always found intimidating is that he has GREAT hair. Really thick and awesome. I saw him this weekend. At some point I was under some stupid bright lights, and he said "You have really thin, fine hair..." and started touching it. I was trying to act cool like "oh yeah it's always been like that, haha, now stop, I've always been soooo insecure about it, you know me" ('cause he does know I'm insecure about other things). He was like "Ok, but you shouldn't be soooo insecure about everything" and kissed me. The rest of the weekend he was really sweet and well, like he normally is with me. I was happy to be with him, but I swear that moment spoiled my weekend. I could barely look at him in the eye. It's so unfair that this condition makes us feel so powerless and embarrassed. I mean, he didn't seem to mind. He didn't leave me right there in disgust. He continued to be nice, sweet, even romantic. He continued kissing me and showing attraction to me, making plans for the next time we see each other (I even said "Wow, will there be another time?", I was that scared, even though I didn't say it was because of my hair. He just gave me a puzzled look and said "Of course there will be"). I try telling myself it's only hair. But I still feel awful and inadequate. I mean, at least it's out there now that I have awful hair. My ex also had awesome hair and he also never made a big deal of my awful hair. But to me it's not just hair. I always have men hitting on me. I guess it's just I hope it's not so obvious so that's why they hit on me... but the ONE guy I wanted to never find out, did. And it sucks so much!
