28. The Gym?

Forgive me for stating the obvious but, yes, the gym.  Ever since I was in high school, I had a membership to my local gym.  To be completely straight about it, I was so intentionally aloof that I wouldn’t make eye contact with anyone while I was there.  Any man who dared to strike a conversation with me was met with my own version of the Heisman.  In fact, to many of them I was outright rude.  Yep.  I was that girl.  Nice, huh?  My goal was to work out and then get out.

My goal now is still the same, but my attitude is much different.  When I went to Pure Austin with my friend, Jane, I was far more aware of my surroundings than I have ever been.  As I was looking around, I noticed a lot of guys there working out too (I know, I know.  Big surprise!).  It made me ask myself, why wouldn’t this be a great place to meet a nice guy?  Then, I remembered all of the men who had tried to talk with me and I didn’t give them the time of day.  The reality is the gym is a great place to meet a nice guy!

So, this ends up being a Hot Spot and Relationship Tip rolled into one.  The Hot Spot is:  ladies, join your local gym and go work out there.  Although I love the place and know a ton of great guys who work out there (hint, hint), it doesn’t have to be Pure Austin.  If you don’t already have a gym membership, pick one that’s convenient to either your home or office (except a place like Curves that’s for women only).  Then, go.

The Relationship Tip is:  be approachable.  Actually, I already wrote about this (see Relationship Tip #6).  I’m taking my own advice, by the way, but that’s a post for another day.
