Some people say they work out to be healthier. Some say to feel good. Some because they want to look beautiful.
A new one for me was coming here and seeing guys putting a lot of time and energy into their appearance because, as they would say it makes them worthy of a beautiful partner.
The way I always felt was that if I worked out, I would get myself the body I felt most right in. Not muscular or the most popular type, but the body I think fits my sense of self. And then I would try to find a guy who liked that body and the self that matched it. The concept of making yourself worthy of someone else or deserving of someone seems like starting from the end and working your way back to the beginning, backwards to me.
Please share your thoughts.
