I see, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.(Original post by ByronicHero)
Sure, and I have made a similar distinction above. If someone repeatedly did it to me I wouldn't feel insecure (which was the question), but I would find it tedious and ask them to stop. I agree with you that it is fine to question to intent; I have made jokes about finding other women attractive in the past and it was taken as intended, but repeatedly doing it could be indicative of some other issue. Often it will simply amount to a difference of opinion with regards to what constitutes humour, or "openness". In all cases communication is key, always has been and always will be.
Have you got yours?
