... that married people should not openly notice beautiful individuals of the opposite sex? Must it be frowned upon or it is totally ok like admiring extraordinary places of nature?
I wouldn't feel comfortable if my wife stared at someone on the street (she never did it, but I am just trying to imagine). On the other hand, I personally can't help it,when I pass by a beautiful lady, not paying attention to her beauty.
I love my wife and can't think of leaving her for someone else, even a model.
Do you think I have to visit a doctor or it is normal and you share my feelings, but never revealed them to public?
Thanks everybody, who read this. Peace to all of you)))
I suspect it's much harder for men than women not to get caught checking out someone attractive, because I think men probably notice and value appearances more than women do. When I'm out, it is very rare that I look directly at men or that any man stands out to me as attractive. And even if once a year I might notice that a man is physically attractive, it's not to the point where I feel compelled to stare. I can easily avert my gaze, and it's more "Look, there's someone who looks like that actor/model/painting or has perfect symmetrical features" and not, "Wow, he's so beautiful, I can't stop staring and am going to drool."
It's more difficult for men not to notice women I think, because men tend to highly value beauty, and with some of the intentionally sexually provocative outfits some women wear - I've seen people walking around the city in push-up bikinis on a warm day - you can hardly blame a guy for noticing. I do very much appreciate it if the person I am with doesn't allow himself to openly check someone out or stare in front of me though. That's something best done privately, to avoid annoyance and arguments, in my opinion.
