A strange feeling it was. I was out shopping yesterday with my hair done nice, a necklace, cute t- shirt and girly jeans, feeling good. Nothing over the top, just a bit of that femme look. Now here in Canada when buying beer at the grocer they ask you for I.D. My picture is of course drab me, with very short hair (ugh). She looks at me and then at the picture and says “very handsome picture”. Okay, years ago that would have made me grin, but this was the first time I wasn’t happy to hear it! I do not know if it was a knock on my long girly hair or a legit compliment but I realized I don’t want to be handsome anymore! I wanna be cute, or maybe even attractive?, but not handsome! Kinda made me a bit sad, even though I believe it was a sincere comment. I’m afraid one day someone may refer to me as a ” handsome woman”. 😩 Lord please no, not that. Just bury me now then, lol.
Anyone else feel not quite as happy as they used to when being complimented when in drab? I’m kinda surprised at how much I didn’t want to hear it.🤔
