A couple months ago, I started going to the gym. Not to lose weight, not to find a potential partner, but just to use my muscles for something other than walking and crawling in bed.
I go to a Christian gym that is very nice but very expensive. Because of this, the majority of people are retired men and women who may have nothing else better to do with their time and money. It is a rare occasion to see a woman around my age regardless of whether she's physically attractive or not. However, I've been spotting this woman lately who is either REALLY GOOD at looking at me without me knowing, or she's just simply not interested.
I am, by no means, physically attractive and full of myself, but I am somewhat self-confident (and anyone can be self-confident in themselves regardless of imperfections).
Whenever I'm in the same room as her, I do tend to focus on certain workouts that bring out the biceps. I can't honestly say that she hasn't done the same, but that's probably my perverted mind and my false sense of hope convincing me that something is there. I'm the type of guy who would honk at a woman running on the sidewalk, but it's a different story when I approach women; it either never happens, or I look like a little boy lost in Toys R' Us trying to find his mom.
Not only that, but I have a feeling that this woman is very capable of defending herself. Trying to avoid sexual harassment is one thing, but trying to avoid getting my arm broken and knocked out faster than I can say “I'm sorry” is another. Because I don't want to die and because she's very beautiful, I want to minimize my risk of something bad happening.
During my upper-body work out (I have the right to bear arms so I might as well use it), I thought about approaching her with the pick-up line my sister told me to try:
“Hey, do you know a number to the nearest veterinarian?”
-flex- “Because I've got some sick puppies”
However, those could be my last words.
Datingish, I'm in a pickle here and I need your help.
Women, if you were at the gym...how would you want to be approached? If you wouldn't want to be approached, how would you likely kill or knock unconscious the approacher?
Men, have you tried anything that was successful when approaching a woman at the gym? Do you groan louder when lifting weights to try and seduce the woman with your mating call?
