As a result, I empathize with my politically-correct male friends who plead, “I was trying really hard to keep my eyes on her face and somehow they slid down to her breasts. I caught myself and snapped my eyes back to her face only for them to slide down once again.”
After going through this debate with my floating-cleavage-loving friend, I confess that I’m really not sure there is a correct answer.
It was here that he calmly imparted his sagely knowledge, “The difference, my friend, is whether or not the woman desires the attention. If the woman wants the man’s attention she feels admired. If she doesn’t want the attention she considers it leering. It all comes down to her perception of what she feels his intent is.”
I opened my mouth to say how typical of a man to throw the blame back on women, just to snap it shut again. He makes an excellent point. Although I don’t feel he is 100% accurate, there is much truth to his belief.
Nevertheless, I don’t believe guys should be given carte blanche to stare, even when the lady has her cleavage out invitingly. However, women might want to lighten up a bit and save themselves a bunch of unnecessary heartache.
Cleavage staring will never go away—it’s in a man’s DNA. Might as well make peace with it.
