Smooth(ie) Criminal

Yesterday I entered Das Gym and there was a muscle-y gentleman sitting at the smoothie bar close to the entrance. Apparently he had noticed me at Das Gym before, because he took the time out of his routine of checking out girls as they walked in to say to me, "Hi, I've seen you here before and I wanted to know if you have a second to converse?"

I tried to scoot out of this situation by saying I needed to quickly change into my gym clothes before the 8pm class. But he suckered me into a convo about Acuras. He seemed nice enough but as we were talking I noticed he checked out every girl who walked past us. He asked for my number but I told him I would rather give him my email, and then he acted offended! I explained to him that I've seen enough Oprah's and America's Most Wanted to not give my number to a random at the gym. And also I got a creepy vibe.....

Ahhh too sexy!!

Cut to today. He emails me not once, but twice. I don't respond to either. My Mom thinks I should just play nice and get a free meal (Mom knows what's up!). However, I really think dating a guy from the gym is bad for these reasons:

A. It's bad for "business" - if other more suitable guys at the gym see hanging with /dating/"conversing" with said gentleman, then I might get a reputation for being a gym groupie or someone who meets guys at random juice bars. I need to keep my options open!

B. Being the "gym couple" - I refuse to be that couple holding hands while working out on adjacent stationery bikes

C. Avoidance will make me fat - if I were to meet a gym regular and date him, and then break up, I would have to carefully time my gym attendance and probably avoid going on certain days all together. Then I would gain weight. Then I wouldn't be able to fit into my too-tight-expensive-ass Rock and Republic jeans I adore and I would be sad.

So ladies and gentlemen of the juice joint, I think I will pass on this suitor. Although I think I would love to meet someone new that makes me feel groovy, I guess now is not the time.

The guy in that picture clearly shaves his arms yet has very bushy armpit hair. I mean, if you're going to manscape at least do it right.

I think VK covered a whole section on the art of the gym holla...haha. Obviously your juice dude didn't read that.

That guy didn't sound you would be missing out on much...so eh, whatever.

Yeah, i would second the motion to avoid dating at the gym. Esp. that guy--checking out other girls while asking for your phone number? Geez...

I tried gym dating twice and neither situation ended well...I say just tell that guy to move on and keep your eyes open for a better opportunity.

Checking out other girls while talking to you = icky. Good call on the non-date.

Now you are probably going to see him everytime you go to the gym. LOL...But I am sure he would be a willing spotter.

C. That was my first thought. Being a personal trainer prolly has something to do with that too BUT...being a gym couple is ok, as I'm sure that the guy you decide to be with, will prolly be a gym-type.

Either way, I'm suprised you even gave him your correct email.

Now, don't you avoid it just because he's a icky-dog. He can't hurt you. YOU = tough Girly :)
