I totally get the whole “gym predator” thing. Thats something to tread carefully around
To add context to my post: I only started noticing the gym girl because I always felt her stares heavily on me. In fact she’s not the type I go for. But I guess eventually I couldn’t help but start to notice her attractiveness as well, it’s like I was spellcasted (for lack of a better word) or something.
I’ve been a regular at the gym for years and I never ask women out. Because I don’t expect to pick up dates there—I’m there to work out. I’ll try to keep this philosophy. You’re completely in the right and it helped set me straight again
