I’m trying to get a general consensus on wher most girls’ (on the bee, anyway) stand on this, and what your men do!
And this is in GENERAL, regardless of whether or not you’re together at the time, he’s alone, etc.
Just if you were to pick one. 🙂
Does your man make a conscious effort to not ogle other women?

He certainly doesn’t gape at other women when we’re out, but I don’t think that’s something he’s ever really done. It isn’t him.
Will he make comments about Natalie Portman being pretty fit and hot in a film (or some other actress)? Yep. Doesn’t bother me a bit because a) I agree she’s hot, and b) When Hugh Jackman comes on screen, I make the same comments.

Yes he does, and he’s really good at it too (not ogling). I can’t tolerate ogling and he knows that and doesn’t want me to be unhappy… so the less a woman is wearing, the less he looks at her (at least when I am there, but he’s not a big ogler in general anyway. He criticized a married male aquaintance of ours for having “a wandering eye” and he considers this severe criticism, tantamount to “he better not cheat on her, that dirtbag”). I don’t even have to look at him at this point, I know he won’t be ogling. He is almost at the expert level where I can take him to Rio and feel great!

I would never ask Mr. 99 to do something I myself, cannot…and I’m sorry, I love my husband, adore him endlessly and lust after his big, sexy body…but when a young, delicious, just a little naive waiter happens to walk by, I help myself to a big heapin eyeful…it’s part of being alive…so yeah, I don’t think it’s fair to expect him to abstain from something I can’t do either.

I haven’t noticed him ogling, so I don’t really know if he’s conciously trying not to…I do know he calls me beautiful all the time though!

I’ve never seen him obviously checking out other women in front of me. I wouldn’t really care if he was being appropriate and not creepy about it though – I can appreciate a good looking woman.

He just simply doesnt, I know that is the best possible case and may not seem true to some, but I often side glance to see if he looks but never have I ever caught him. We’ve been together 7 years and not once has he. If he did I wouldnt shoot him for it, I wouldnt be stoked on it but what can you do, there’s always these girls wearing next to nothing everywhere you go. I think most guys are looking as just a plain “people watch” I look at people all the time.

No he does not obviously ogle women just like I do not obviously ogle men. But I asm very secure in regards to my looks so it probably would not bother me if he did!

He’s never been terrible about it but I don’t think he’s making any special effort to avoid it. I’m usually the ones who’s like “oooo boobies”.

@bowsergirl: +1. No, he doesn’t ogle when we are out in public. I don’t think he makes a conscious effort NOT to, he just isn’t that way.
But we both talk about how sexy Jennifer Aniston and Johnny Depp are!!

I didn’t vote because none of the options fit. FI doesn’t go out of his way to not oogle people, he just doesn’t do it to start with. Once in a blue moon he’ll mention that some actress is pretty, but I can’t say I’ve ever caught him oogling anyone but me, that he does frequently and up close.

I honestly don’t even notice him checking out other women. I’m not sure why it doesn’t bother me. It just doesn’t.
