The Bunny is always texting me claiming that some woman or other has been blatantly checking him out, or even purposely standing too close to him on public transit. Which made me think that he’s aware he’s cute.
And yet when I pay him a compliment on his looks, he cannot handle it. At all. Deflects by calling me a pervert. Acts like it’s terribly odd of me to be finding him attractive. Once, via text, he thanked me sincerely for telling him I think he’s strong and manly and awesome; he said women generally don’t seem to notice these qualities in him. Once, a day or two after I yelled at him for his habit of calling me a pervert when I say something nice about him, I complimented him and he said “thank you,” but in a stupid voice – he really has a hard time accepting compliments like a normal person.
So…who’s with me in thinking all this “Awww yeah, I just got checked out by a buncha ladies” shit is a bunch of bravado he’s putting on for me because he heard that chicks dig confidence?
I mean if you actually do know you’re hot*, you don’t get flustered when your partner tells you so, right? It does not seem feasible to me that The Bunny truly does think women check him out all the time and yet my expressions of lust are this completely foreign, weird thing that he can’t respond to in a reasonable way.
*Or at least, hot to some people; I do think beauty is subjective.
