I was at the gym today and was having some trouble setting up the equipment - the pins on some of the benches/racks have been slightly bent out of shape from use and so it takes a fair amount of banging around on them to get them to move sometimes. Both times two guys emerged out of nowhere to help me. The first guy didn't say a single word or make any eye contact and just walked away after (presumably because he didn't want to be "that guy" haha) and the other one was friendly and then just went back to his business. I was very grateful for their help and was thinking about how nice it is that we live in a world where men actually want to help us since it makes them feel good. It makes me feel like no matter what there will most likely be someone out there who will want to assist me if I'm in need and that's an amazing privilege to have. For a long time, I was annoyed by the guys around me for being so sex-driven - I hated having random guys stare at me, make creepy comments, or attempt to touch me. But today I am very grateful for the male species and appreciate that they feel this instinctual urge to protect or help a woman in need. These two guys clearly wanted to help just for the sake of it, since neither of them attempted to chat me up and I am very thankful for that. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside!
