Default A Wink From a Woman:Meaning

In the past 6 months I had three women wink at me. One of my coworkers would wink at me every other time she would talk to me. I was at a job fair for another job when I started to talk to another woman in line and she winked at me a couple of times during our conversation. I was at a job interview and a much older 50'ish woman interviewing winked at me when she met me and then winked at me when I left the interview. I don't know how to react when I get winked at--I just ignore as if it never happened. How am I supposed to react when I get winked at?? I don't understand the full ramifications of the wink???

I've lived a long time but I've not familiar with perpetual winking from the opposite sex. Could it be that you haven't bathed for some time and the winking is just a natural reaction to a repugnant smell? Or perhaps you imagine that you're some sort of ladies man and these images are just a product of your imagination. I really don't think I can answer this question without further information but I do wish you good fortune as you pursue the answer.

Smile. Then ask what they are doing later or something?

I am married and no I didn't wink back. I have lived in LA and I can only recall one woman ever winking at me. Now that I moved to Texas I had it happen to me three times in 6 months. I don't know if its friendliness or flirting or some other meaning?? Heck I don't know. I told my wife about it and she said that winking is not common. Just wondering. Then again Montana Guy might be right and the these women were actually squinting instead of winking due to my stinkiness.

Perhaps it's hotter in Texas and it is watery eyes

Then my advise would be.....get less stinky.

I usually ask them if they have something in their eye...

Honestly, if you want to ask me out, come out with it and ask me out...that kind of subtle thing just annoys me...

Have you developed a tic? You know, maybe you have a nervous tic that makes you wink and they are just mirroring you unconsciously. JK

Hmmm. Stinky, thinking you're hot, nervous tick, something on your shirt or tie (shorts, tevas, toga, whatever attire), saying you have the inside track (re: interviewer), could be any of them. I would take a guess at what the 50ish woman's wink meant or didn't mean, but I always end up with the wrong answer. If you are happy in your life and need a little harmless fantasy, believe what you want, use it in your interior life. If, on the other hand, women start accosting you on the street, I think you need to psot on a site for men only who would like to know your secret. (Lastly, men out number women, so there are women who will make advances toward a man irrespective of his relationship status . . . do you wear a wedding ring? . . . and men who like to attract women irrespective of his relationship status). And remember, it's Texas and not LA. Completely different culture.
