In my day to day life, I have Natural Hair Radar now a days and when I see another natural I sort of stare at them until they acknowledge me and when they don't look I get upsetWacko huh? Well I just feel that we should at least smile at each other just to show our appreciation of the beauty of Us....IMO.
 
 
Am I crazy? Ok don't answer that....but do You want Acknowledgement from the In Your Face day to day Natural Sistah's and some Bro's that You encounter?

XD you're not TOO crazy :P

I've had naturals acknowledge me and compliment my hair then talk about theirs for a second. I would like it if we did acknowledge each other more, but it's just enough for me to see each other. Today I saw a natural with a nice little colored fro working at JC Penny. I was wearing my little curly fro too. XD I didn't say anything to her, but I saw her and that was enough for me. But I do wonder if she saw me.

You know I have thought the same thing before.  I have been completely natural, fro and all, for almost a year now.  I live in a small town, but I proudly rock my fro.  I remember it was about four months after my BC, and I saw this woman with long, beautiful locs and I felt this strange sense of kindredness lol.  We talked for a few moments since she was a friend of my mother, and I am sure she noticed my fro but it was like we wanted to say something but we didn't (as crazy as that sounds).

LOL, no, I don't get upset at all. When I do encounter another natural and eye contact is made, I give a small smile, they usually give one back. To me, we have acknowledged each other without having to say a word.

^^^ THIS
I don't get upset if they don't acknowledge me though being natural isn't all that important to some. I think when I first went natural I kinda thought of it as a secret club, but it's not. More and more people are doing it, I think a lot are doing it because it's a fad now

Yesterday I saw a natural and I felt a sort of kindredness....we made eye contact and I think we were both thinking, "hey another natural!" But that was it. I don't get mad if they don't acknowledge me but I think a lot is said in the eye contact. I also agree that it's a fad right now. I wonder how many ladies will still be natural ten years from now....

This is so true!  I happen to be walking though downtown the other day saw a lady with beautiful locs I was just compelled to compliment her.  Come to find out we are sorority sisters.  Usually other naturals see me and think its all non verbal, like yeah we aren't the norm and we are proud of it.
