I was standing in line behind this gentleman who was, I'm guessing, in his mid 30's casually dressed in slacks and a collared shirt. He placed his order and then went to sit at a table to wait. There was something about him that caught my attention. After placing my order and filling my drink, I stood over to the side to wait. My eyes scanned the room and rested on him. Again, there was something about him that I just couldn't put my finger on.
- I've never seen him before, so it wasn't a feeling of recognition.
- He wasn't that great looking; so, it wasn't a feeling of attraction.
- Overall, he was pretty average and normal looking.
Yet, something about him kept grabbing my attention.
They called my number; so, I picked up my order, refilled my drink, and then left to get in my car. As I walked out the door, I glanced over one last time to look at this guy.
Now it's really bugging me. What was it about this guy that caught my attention? Is he gay? There certainly wasn't anything in the way he was dressed or sat there to suggest such; nor in his speech, although I only heard him speak a few words as he placed his order. It was lunch time, so the place was fairly crowded; so why him? As my eyes scanned the room, there was a table on the other side of the room with a couple of attractive college aged guys; so, if it was eye candy I was seeking for then that is where my gaze would have been.
I've always regarded gaydar as a myth; but, now I'm wondering if there is really something to it. Do we exhibit subtle clues that only someone else in the family would pick up, perhaps even subconsciously? Do we emit some sort of gay pheromones?
I'm sure I'll never see that guy again; so, I'll never be able to confirm my suspicions. But, there was just something about him that caught my attention.
