Will I sound like I’m flirting?
Last week, at a work meeting I noticed there was someone there I’ve been friendly with. I’ll be seeing him again in a few weeks but I have a dilemma. all the time I’ve known him he’s been extremely overweight, but last week I had to do a double-take because he’s lost at least 6st. He looks great! If this was a woman and I said how good she looked she’d be thrilled. But would he think it was flirting?
Men are people too. We all want to be noticed and affirmed, especially to be told we look good. Unless his weight loss is from serious illness, I would think losing that much weight was due to lots of hard work and focus. So the very least he’d want is for people to notice, to tell him he’s looking great, to encourage him in his very healthy endeavours. And no, a simple ‘Wow – you look so well! Lost weight? Bravo!’ would in no way be seen as a come-on and probably light up his day. Go on – he’s earned it.
