As to another why, I work in a company that has 76 men and only 18 women, and of those 18 women three of us are white, one of the other two only white women in my company is married, the other one is 52 and puts out a very strong vibe "I won't take any crap" a vibe that I WISH I could put out. That leaves me the only single white female under 50 (I'm 43) in a company with 76 men...I have gotten more unwanted overtures in the time I have worked in this company than I care to remember, so much that I have taken to wearing pants and a wedding band most of the time at work...WHY has my biggest problem been with the MARRIED men at this company?? WHY do married men try to come on to women behind their wive's back's?? Am I the only one who thinks this is wrong??
For my last why...WHY is it ok for men to be reserved and quiet and NON outgoing, especially the few happily married men in my company, but if a WOMAN acts the same way, men let you know in no uncertain terms that they are in a huff about it. Why is it ok for an attractive man to choose who he is available to, yet if an attractive woman does the same thing, men get angry??? Why is it ok for married men to flash their wedding rings, but if I flash my wedding band, I get all the huffiness I do from men.
thanks for letting me ask these questions...signed, totally baffled...
