does it depend on the fruit? sometimes when i go shopping i will pick out an inexpensive fruit (usually an orange) to eat on the way home and while i am waiting for the bus. i notice i feel a little more confident when i am peeling an orange in my hand than when i am not.

Fiddling about with something in your hands can make you feel a little more at ease (it's an avoidance technique - a lot of people do it)... like playing with your cell phone on a crowded bus, or holding a pen while you're giving a presentation.

I'm not sure about the whole "attractive" bit, though :confused:

I've never looked at a girl eating an apple and thought "oh my god, I want her" (well, if I have, it sure wasn't because of the apple~).

If you're just doing this for a boost in confidence, I'd say lose the orange and try to make do without it.

Guys can get those same feelings. A guy eating a banana can be portrayed as something else if he's not eating it 'manly' enough.

I don't see how a guy who eats healthy isn't "manly" ;)
I actually think it is indeed attractive when a guy is eating a strawberry or an apple lol. Like it makes me think he's smart and cares about his health. Same with a woman. I usually picture these people in office/professional attire though lol...

I think it's somewhat attractive when a girl eats a banana. Not for the obvious reason, but because I've always considered bananas to be 'my' fruit, so if a girl is eating it, it catches my attention.

I also sometimes take a banana to eat in public. It's a kind of exposure exercise for me.

it makes me think the same thing. compared to most other food items kids have in their hands a piece of fruit is refreshing to see. and plus it is actually something i would gladly accept if someone were to offer it to me (i don't like to eat many of the other snacks people carry around, though i would accept them out of politeness). i have good memories of being offered fruit. my middle school teacher gave me kumquats sometimes and an elementary school teacher would give me a piece of her grapefruit in the afternoon. i was very grateful for this.

I think you really are a gorilla trapped in a mans body.
