Default Why are flies attracted to me?

Yes, I shower, twice a day, once before I sleep and once when I wake up. So I woke up, took a shower, then went out, I got on the bus and this damn fly won't stop bugging me. It just keeps flying around landing on my hair, ears, cheeks, lips, hand, arms, probably my legs too but I can't feel that because I'm wearing jeans...

Oh yes, and after I walked off the bus, I was waiting for the streetlight to change to cross the street, and again I was molested by another fly (or it could be the same one). ARGGH!

Why is this? What are flies attracted to, how can I stop this!? Why me!?

Forgive the assholes on this forum. You ask a serious question and you get silly answers like this.

You probably are using some hair spray or perfume that attracts flies.

This reminds me of a joke about a guy who cleaned out porta-potties and his wife.

One night the dude comes home, and his wife tells him: "Honey, the smell is too much for me. Why don't you take a shower and use this shampoo with pine-tree extract in it?"
The guy takes a shower, goes back to his wife and asks: "How about this time?"
And his wife replies: "Wonderful. Smells like someone sh!t under a pine-tree."
