Well, perhaps they also looked at me with my Beard and Long hair and thought somewhat the same.....but our little ring stopped talking so much after that! It was probably the "mystery" factor - like a man or woman with clothes on being sexier than one without......here we are actually quite naked, just thoughts and brain farts. In person, we have more warts.....if that's possible. When my wife was a little girl she finally got to meet Captain Kangeroo, her hero. Of course, in person he was quite mean and cursed at the kids and parents behind their backs. Another case where the perception was high!
