So there I was, leaning on the kitchen counter, conversing with this cute girl over me. It was then that I noticed those previously mentioned attractive ladies starting to notice us and giving me the eye. You know, the eye... that furtive glance, holding eye contact for milliseconds at a time before looking away, sometimes involving a small smile. I told the fiance about this and, on a whim, asked her to start laughing. Loudly. She complied because she's cool like that. I didn't intend to, but I started laughing as well because her laughter was contagious. More people took notice and we staggered off to another part of the house.
After that, more mingling, but something was different. The ladies were more receptive. I was still the same bumbling conversationalist, but they laughed more and talked longer. I can only assume the change occurred in them. And I have heard of this phenomenon before, the phenomenon where a guy surrounded by women is deemed more desirable simply because of the fact that there are women around him. I wasn't surrounded by girls, but I was seen with one beautiful woman and I was seen making her laugh. Yes, I have heard of this, but this was the first time I experienced it. And the effect just snowballed. And I milked it. =)
