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.
