So I decided that I should tell you all about my lovely shower experience earlier (sarcasm intended). I was in the shower stall at my gym, and I was attempting to shave my legs. Because even in the winter time when my legs don’t show, I can still feel them, so I shave fairly often. I went to shave my legs and after working on one calf, I felt it, and the shaver had barely gotten any work done. So, here I was in frustration because I could feel the porcupine-like goose bumps that my legs were overcome with, and I had to settle on waiting for tomorrow morning. Another difficulty was having to get my lock cut. My padlock was pretty good up until today where it decided to jam up, so we had to get someone to come in a use some big clippers to open it up. Meanwhile I was standing in a towel with all of my shower shampoo crap in my hands. Luckily it didn’t take to long though. But yeah, so that’s what happened in the locker room today.
So what I mean by insecurities is when a guy tries to appear like a man compared to the other guys by putting them down, or showing dominating behavior. For example, I immensely dislike when I see guys try to belittle others guys by putting their hand on their shoulder in an (i don’t even know a good word for it right now, but in a way that they are dominating the other guy, or are attempting to make him look stupid) type of way. Another one that bugs me is that handshake with the shoulder squeeze that some men do in business (or other environments) to show dominance, that they are the top dog or something. What’s annoying though is when guys do these things to appear cool for girls. In my opinion, when guys play dominance and insecure games, that just makes them less attractive. Another one is (even in the position or power) when one tries to make the other appear like a little kid who is naive and reckless, and stupid. I personally think it’s a form of bullying to make fun of someone in a passive way. Even if you aren’t making fun of them to their face, you might as well be.
When guys show off too. That’s really annoying unless they’re actually good at something impressive. Like if this one guy is showing me his cartwheel or something, and you can do a backflip, by all means do the backflip because its unusual to just be able to do. But don’t do something ridiculous that has no merit in the activity.
