    Noticing guys at the gym is one thing. I'm not blind. So, I might say a friendly hello to someone going in or out the front door... but isn't it just wrong to interrupt someone's workout?
    I was doing pullups yesterday and in between sets this guy comes over and decides to hang off the end of the pull up bar to stretch, just a few inches from me... when there is an identical station just a few feet away that no one was using!
    Then, a few minutes later, I attach a rope to one of the cable stations for some scapular retractions and go to get some water. The same guys jumps in and says, "You don't mind if I work in, right?" and takes my rope off to do some cable flies. Again, an identical work station is right next door, that no one is using!
    The funny thing is, he was a pretty good looking guy. I just didn't like having someone fuck around with my workout.
    Was he trying to get my attention, or just being a douche?

    DEFINATELY crusing u... and i'd say pushy and bold too!

    I notice hott dudes at the gym- sometimes a quik chat up if i know someone there, or we've chatted b4 - but interrupting someone's workout is a crime.
    I'll go out of my way to not walk in front of someone during a set when they are concentrating or facing the mirrored wall.

    Now, if u like an aggressive dude, and he's hott, chat him up...but he might be a clingy and too chatty- that later on you'll be avoiding. Gym time is sacred for me, and i can't have a good workout when distracted.

    Sounds like a compliment if anything GWriter icon_smile.gif
    Though yeah it could be annoying if it messed up the schedule of routines.
    Not to be stupid but what exactly do you refer to by "cruised".
    Someone trying to pick you up or a different kind of 'flirting' based on the location?
    Please excuse my naivety due to lack of experience lol.
    just incase that was an extremely dumb question to ask

    Did you lose anything? Apparently you're supposed to lose something during the process of a cruise.
    Oh, and did you get trolled? I heard Firebrand stands outside your house with a loud speaker, flyers and flags waving! Did any of that happen??? icon_neutral.gif

    I probably would come to the conclusion (based on the information you provided) that I would have to be there to conclude.... but most likely I would walk away thinking that the whole experience was a bit strange. I wouldn't think the guy was trying to get my attention, but might just be a clueless dude who isn't aware of "proper procedure" at a gym.

    I'd see what goes in future gym visits. No doubt you will get your answer as time goes on.

    He's being a douche. I would have told him to fuck off.

    lol, when Trollileo was up visiting we took him for a burger and while waiting for the order to go, a guy at a nearby table, rather handsome, stripped my clothes off with his eyes so obviously my eyebrows nearly shot off my face.

    When Bill and T and I were later chowing down at an outside table I told them what happened and said,
    "Good lord, I've heard of robbing the cradle,.... but robbing the coffin?" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    I got cruised at the gym for the first time a few weeks ago. An unattractive man was changing and looked over at me and showed me his boner.

    You need to exercise your gaydar more! Sounds like he was trying to get your attention to me. That doesn't mean he wasn't awkward/a bit of a douche about it. But cut the guy some slack. You could have moved to the empty station, too, and ya didn't. icon_wink.gif

    That would annoy me to no end. When I'm at the gym, I only see myself and my goals, and I aim to accomplish them as efficiently as possible. In, out, done.

    My gym, well, really two locations, is really friendly and just about everyone knows and talks to everyone. I know I’m really bad when I get a good endorphin buzz going.

    @ OP:


    Doesn't sound like he was being a douche.

    Congrats to you. You are likely exuding confidence and happiness and that attracts people.


    @ Doug:

    That's awesome!

    You didn't elaborate how you handled the situation. You could have either pointed out to him that the other station is available hoping he would take the hint or engaged him in the conversation he so desperately desires with you.
