The net result is that women in my family, young women associates, my students, women on here, friends, acquaintences use me as a shoulder to cry on, sounding board and trusted ally. I am comfortable with that role; I actually enjoy it. I have never been a Don Juan. It has always been this way ...as I said I am the "nice" guy. But it does seem that in the last few years as I have aged and become less studly (LOL) my "trusted uncleness" has been magnified.
Last night after coming home from dinner J commented to me that she wished that all these women would leave me alone. What precipitated it is that we ran into a couple of younger female neighbors we know and one of them was pigeon holing me, asking my advice and ignoring J as if she wasn't there. It was kinda rude!!!!
J commented to me as we left the restaurant that everyone wants her husband and she was getting tired of it. This is the first time that she has ever expressed open jealousy. I think its hysterical because I really am no longer a studly threat, if I ever was one LOL ... I am just nice old Tenyn.
I don't have a question; this is just an observation that will get buried in the threads ... put it in the life is funny category.
