I watched Millionaire matchmaker yesterday and there was a gay guy, who was looking for a metrosexual guy and the other millionaire a metrosexual was looking for a woman. It was quite funny to see that both men care about their appearance on that kind of level, but it also let me think about how fine the line is between the two.
A macho man usually walks with broad shoulders and might act too jealous or overprotective over a girl they like. They might even attack the man, who have hurt the girl… I have yet met a guy, who haven't impressed me with the protecting part. I mean, what is wrong with talking? And where did the part go of fighting like a gentleman? Ok, fighting like a gentleman might be dangerous when you use certain lethal techniques (for example duels with swords and guns) but can’t it be a fight like Colin Firth and Hugh Grant in the Bridget Jones’ Diaries movies? Cute and still gentle in a way?
I just can’t seem to get off the topic of “the” Superman guy at work. This week, he has done things which has surprised me! It is as if the world just stopped and I fell into a parallel universe? Yesterday, there was a Christmas high-tea and all the heads of the service department were the waiters! It was a surprise to see that. Unfortunately, he wasn’t wearing his glasses but all in all it was a surprise seeing him serve sushi to people and filling some glasses with drinks. I was even more surprised, when I asked him a question and he did it immediately… It was like ZOOF done! I just asked him, whether he could fill a tray with food for the other colleague’s upstairs. They were still working hard and couldn’t go downstairs. I brought the tray upstairs, but still… Superman guy delegated it to another immediately for me. WOW!
Today, he surprised me twice as well. There are two new chairs at our department, they are for relaxing I guess? Or are they for spying *joking!*. The chairs are “so wrong” by the way… They have the shape of a… And it is wrong to call them “hard”, while you are sitting on them… I can’t type that…! Anyway… I walked back to my desk and saw two people sitting on the new chairs… Ok, not completely true… I saw one from the front and someone with crossed legs. I said with a cheery voice: “Chummy!” Then I heard the voice of Superman guy: “Yes, right!”. I thought: “Oh, crap! I should have shut my mouth… Oh well.” I put my scarf on my desk with my cap and took off my coat. I redid my hair and sat behind my desk (wtf was I thinking doing that then!). The whole time I felt a piercing look on the back of my head. I thought: “No way…” I turned around and I was right (he looked surprised somehow, which made it worse). I thought: “I can’t concentrate! I wanna run away!” But I didn’t. I just tried to continue working, pushing all the crappy thoughts away.
Then tonight… Ok, I was terribly tired… I started working at 10 and it was around 19:30 now… I’m eating pizza for dinner and the Superman guy and super cute guy walked in: “How is everything going?” If I didn’t saw them coming I would have coughed out the pizza… I felt like crap and I didn’t really have the energy to be “not” sarcastic. After a short conversation I said: “<name of Superman guy>, why are you still here?” It looked like he was going to fall backwards from shock. I thought: “Should I have formulated it differently? Or didn’t he expect that question at all? Yes, I am direct… Live with it?” My other colleague said directly after me: “Yes, why are you still here?” We were working and I guess I’m not the only one who felt tired. There was a long pause, I saw that the Superman guy was staring at the super cute guy. So I stared at the super cute guy to read this facial expressions. It was funny. They were talking to each other through their eyes, even though I missed the message the faint smile made me think: “Hmm… I am missing something interesting.” My colleague suddenly said: “I know, why he is still here.” Superman guy replied surprised with a smile on his face: “Oh really?” My colleague made an excellent deduction. The silence was killed and Superman guy had a broad smile on his face. Seriously, how many times is he going to surprise me and make me feel puzzled? How do you people talk to your boss or interact with your boss? I am lost in facial expressions? Do I need to watch more Lie to me? *giggles*
Going back to my first question. After seeing some men pretend to be a macho man (why is the song from the Village People in my head, when I say that? - http://youtu.be/AO43p2Wqc08) and a few men who are macho I have found out that I don’t like macho men at all. A gentleman is more my type, but one that makes me rethink whether they are a metrosexual, gay or even bi puzzles me?! Or was it something else that makes me rethink everything way too much? *sticks out tongue*
