The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

The other day a friend and I were having a coffee and I noticed a girl sitting across from us, not what most guys would call a "knockout", but she was so sexy in her own way. I have always had my own-diverse attractions, and never conformed to societal standards of beauty.  

This girl was about 5'7, 160lbs,  dark hair, tattoo on the back of  her neck (ohm-yoga symbol), glasses, and beautiful blue eyes. She was sitting, legs crossed, reading a book, her hair was tied up like a buddhist monk, and she was so in-tune with her book that she was oblivious to her surroundings.  While she was reading, she would crack the cutest little smiles about the content of her mysterious book - she had a grammar school style cover on it. 

I said to my friend, "this girl is driving me insane", he replied, "why she's fat";  I said,"how could you say that, look at her: curvaceous body, sexy eyes, my god that sexy neck, and most of all look how much she is into that book", his reply. "you're weird, I always knew it". LOL! He finished his coffee and left, I stayed. 

I contemplated going over and introducing myself, but I didn't; I felt it was wrong to intrude on her personal space. If it was a bar/lounge, or if she was even aware that there was other people in the room, I would have, but I opted not to. I sat there imagining what she might be reading: an erotic story, a whimsical book on sexuality, or maybe her own novella..... I will never know.
This got me thinking about things that I find sexy: smart girls/guys, well kept feet, toes are oh so sexy, neck and shoulders, belly buttons, curves, how a girl wiggles her panties down to her ankles when taking them off, glasses, READING, body piercing, tattoos, cooking together, eating, feeding each other, smiles, touching-skin on skin, kissing, flirting, silliness, etc. 

If you feel the same way, please add to my list in the comment section:

Do you think I should have approached her?

yes you should've approached her.

As for your friend, ugh, glad that there are men and women WHO do like bigger people and find US sensual..

Yes, you should have. If you had said to her that you couldn't help notice how striking she was and that you couldn't help but say hello I'm sure she wouldn't have minded the invasion of private space. Everyone loves a compliment.
