There's always three sides to every story. Having not been there it's hard to know exactly what transpired.

That being said, if someone unknown to me or my wife came up and said, you look nice in that top, we would probably just look at him sideways. If he came out and said something like, hey, nice rack. Or you look sexy in that top, we would definitely have words.

I know in NY catcalling is a sport. But I was raised a little different. Women get treated with manners and respect. If I see an attractive woman do I say to myself, "Wow she looks great"? sure I do. But there's no need for me to verbalize that to her or her husband.

But I would never come to a public forum to complain about it. No one can fight your battles but you.

Jus say'n.

When I only get one pickle on my cheeseburger, I talk to the manager of the establishment........not create a new thread.

Married couples will start thinking twice about moving to TV if this behavior continues.
I hope you mean to ALL women (and girls)--not just "married" women.

I remember my perfectly respectable and quite lovely Aunt who used to whisper to me that she enjoyed the occasional wolf whistle.

I understand respect, BUT I think sometimes we as a society have gone to extremes.

I KNOW why stadiums are full of people and why babies are born. Viva la difference.

This guy could have been a cad. If so I apologize to the OP.

A man is going to always "appreciate" a lovely woman or we are indeed in a mess.

A man should never be disrespectful to a woman, strike her or use her good looks against her. A woman should never be disrespectful to a man, strike him or use his good looks against him. People shouldn't USE sex to get what they want unless that is love and traditional happiness.

Good morning. It's a beautiful day in The Villages.

From what I have heard from several very attractive women is that their greatest problem is being accepted into groups by other women who do not want "competition".

Are "Trophy Wives" accepted and treated well by other women in TV?
