    Not really ... though I live in a small town with not very many people who are my "type," so it doesn't really bother me. The kind of guys who express any interest probably would have been interested in me before I was fully paleo -- I was never grossly overweight, though I have gotten a lot leaner/more muscle definition.
    As sbhikes said, the kind of guys who are into tomboys/female jocks/etc tend to be a little less concerned with body comp (to an extent).

    I work in an office, so I think people assume I'm a bit older than I actually am, but I'm the youngest person here (24 now, started here just before turning 23). I guess that's kind of young for being the sole Help Desk rep in my office. Out and about, people usually assume I'm in college and I get carded all the time. I don't get carded as much when my hair is pink or purple, but I have no idea why that might be.

    Ah, now I understand. I'm way out of everybody's league.

    I think that's my issue. I decided I would try and see if anybody is sneaking a look at me. I think I've caught a few people taking a peek at me.

    That's for sure. Plus since I hang around with a lot of the fit ones, it's really rare to find a fit guy over 40 who doesn't have that tired, dried out, deflated, wan appearance that older guys get on statins and low fat diets.

    Well, AmyMac, if I lived in your town I'd probably be sneaking glances at you even though I'm female just because outdoorsy girls are so awesome and so rare.
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs

    it is a balance tho as i have come across the phenomenum of older guy, who still has all his hair, "looks after himself", prob would have been naturally slim etc. and they look metro to an almost unnatural degree. and they are also hell vain lol kinda annoying too as when i was even 10 yrs younger, i wouldnt have had to deal with them at all. they would have taken one look at the tatts and ran! i come across a lot too who suffer from the wine-is-fine-but-whisky's-quicker route to physical and mental decline and that isnt pretty either as they are deluded to boot.

    Same here, I am so accustomed to not being on "that" radar screen after having spend so many years being so...large...that I probably wouldn't even notice it if someone did! Then again, there IS the "little" tat that peeks out of my shirt depending on how the back collar is designed, and I am amazed at the number of people I know my age who are convinced that I am just far too active for a 52 year old woman. This probably explains my great invisibility power...

    Your dietary habits and exercise help keep drama out of your life. He has some growing up to do.
