Gym Flirtation: Art or Science???

    I generally do not post topics here but this one I couldn't resist. I've been hitting the gym pretty seriously now for about 3 years and while my original thoughts about being "social" while lifting or working out were pretty simple and more on the conservative side, I've noticed a difference and a change not only in myself but others around me.

    Those of us that are "regulars" are serious about getting in and getting out of the gym and have little time for idle conversation. The problem however is that with the amount of testosterone build up that comes with lifting, a good piece of eyecandy can cause problems. I unfortunately have fallen victim to one or two frequent gym goers (both older and ridiculously attractive....I have a serious weakness for muscle "dads") when it comes to sparking up a conversation. This leads to my question (after that long rant).....is flirting at the gym an art or a science?

    Personally, I think it's a little of both as the art is finding something clever to say and engage the other person.....while the science is timing and even position. My "eyecandy" seems to make eye contact with me on a daily basis and has even made little comments, most recently saying "hook up with anybody from here yet?" Naturally, I do not want to come off as being "easy" so I deny any interest of being "that guy" at the gym. Truth be told, with the fact that he looks a lot like Bruce Willis.....I'd be on it in a heartbeat.

    I'm interested to know your thoughts and experiences with the whole gym deal and if there's a way to find a happy medium. I've been close to asking "Mr. Willis" out but not totally sure that he'd say yes. Some people flirt for no reason at all. I'm confident but not arrogant so like most of us, I fear rejection. Plus, I wouldn't want to make things awkward. I look forward to hearing from those of you that are mature in your thoughts and experiences.

    There are some amazing dudes at my gym who I would love to get extra sweaty with but the opportunity hasn't come yet. I understand where the OP is coming from but then again if one of my gym eye-candies actually came on to me like that there would have been a different ending to the story :->

    Stop playing hard to get. Ask if he'd like to grab a smoothie or something with you after the workout.

    I think it's artistic when you pick him up and throw him on the weight bench, tear off his shirt and shorts, tie him to the bench with them, and have you way with him right there in the gym. icon_biggrin.gif
