I was struck by this line in an article on dating: "Inviting someone to look at you is the first step in inviting them into your lives."

An area where I've felt most vulnerable, for a host of reasons, is when I dress up.  I love fashion, but I hesitate to wear even my best pieces for fear of people looking at me.  How's that for intimacy issues?

I like this re-framing.  Time to let my more fashionable side show!
