Happy Tuesday Lovebugs!!!
As some of you know I’ve been striving to live a healthy lifestyle for almost a year. While it’s been an incredibly difficult journey, the results have made it all worth it. I attribute a huge part of my success with the partnerships and comradary I’ve created with other women in the struggle. My trainer, also a woman, has tremendously been pivotal in my weight loss success. See a theme here? WOMEN!
As a result I have NO real desire to work out with men on a regular basis; especially ones for which I have romantic feelings. Here’s why…
I’m not saying I don’t work out around men. I workout and take classes in a public gym so of course I work out around men. In addition, I have been saying I want to find a guy to work out with to push myself physically, but I need him to be buff, ugly and preferably gay as hell!! Here’s the thing. I undeniably look my worst during and after I work out; even worse than I look in the morning after I forget to wrap up my hair with a scarf at night.
I don’t know if this is a growing trend but lately all the guys I talk to ask me if I work out. That seems to be one of their first questions before even asking me if I believe in Jesus! My answer is usually “occasionally” (which is an understatement). The very next thing they say is “We should workout together sometimes” to which I immediately respond “HELL TO THE NO!” One guy even tried to say he didn’t have time to take me out on a date to a restaurant because of his schedule but we could go out on a date to his gym. Needless to say he got blocked.
Some couples are into working together which is totally cute for them. However, is there a new trend in workout dating that I’m unaware of out here in these fitness streets? I’m not saying I want a guy to see me at my best all the time, but I also don’t want them seeing me like complete despair either!! Therefore, my answer is “NO DATING AT THE GYM!” It’s a recipe for disaster if you ask me.
I know I may be unpopular with my opinion on this subject, but I’m completely fine with that. I’m all for me and my man living a healthy lifestyle, but I believe in working out separately so we can enjoy our results together; preferably on an exotic beach with me in a string bikini! HA!
What are your thoughts? Is going on a date to the gym a good idea? Sound off in the comments below.
