Default Women checking me out

I have been dating my girlfriend for about 2 months. Since it has gotten more serious (holding hands, arms around each other), I have noticed a lot of women making eye contact and smiling at me when we are out together. This is opposed to when I am alone, when women never make eye contact with me. Can any women explain why this is? Am I more attractive because I have a woman with me? I don't consider a woman more attractive when she is with a man. Quite the opposite in fact. This is very strange to me.

ALthough I have no idea being a man I was thinking the same thing.

Never been with a woman before, so I have no idea. I can relate to the alone part though, so all I have to say is...

Yeah I agree with Hellhound. They probably just think it's romantic and feel happy for you and your girlfriend. Some people just like seeing couples together.

Of course! For one, it shows that you are good enough to be with someone, you are not the lonely creep any more in their eyes, so they check you out. Also, the dating/relationship stuff is a competitive sport. The basic instinct behind this is to have the best available genetic material to yourself, and don't let others to have it.
Of course, these are just the basics, in the reality, it is much more fine, distilled, and there are probably a hundred more things to consider. But it is a well known fact, that you are more attractive when you are in a relationship.
I guess you are also a bit more confident, happier, and those are also attractive things.

I notice this too. I do seem to ratchet up a couple notches in other girls eyes when I'm out walking with one. But I usually feel more confident and less afraid to interact. I do sometimes look with the mindset you can't interpret my interaction another way because I'm standing right here with another girl. Maybe that cuts both ways. And the girl you're with almost makes it safe for them to show their minds out loud. But I do find the looking more forward, and not cute couple type.

the other thing is that other women may feel more comfortable/relaxed in your presence and can let down their guard, because they don't feel like you are going to approach them, and they don't have to compete for your attention
