Thank you for replying,
Unfortunately, ever single person who hasn't given me a chance just questions my sexuality. In fact one of my old co-workers had a friend who asked if I was gay...I'm thinking to myself really? You've never met me before now, and just assume I'm gay. I was able to just brush it off before, but now I just feel like that's what has been driving the comments my whole life. Honestly, the only people who have really gotten to know me are my own co-workers, family members, and a select few other friends. They know that I just act a certain way, and understand that. But, everyone else just labels me and I find that almost disheartening.
I have tried to change myself, since I have been labeled as being too nice to women. Therefore, I treated a girl with total disrespect and then she said I was just being an ignorant a**. Now, I may not be the MOST confident man out there, but I am certainly no pushover. I was raised to treat women with respect and be a gentleman (something all girls say they want, yet they never really do). But, I was also raised to never be a pushover or doormat. If a girl is wrong and I know it, I'm gonna tell her to her face - I'm not gonna look stupid just for her sake. But, of course if I do that, then the girl says the same thing every time - "I thought you were a gentleman." I just can't seem to win anywhere...people question my sexuality, and from the few girls who really have given me a chance, only two of them so far have not labeled me as a pushover.
