Cool This Chick At The Gym...

what are some good conv. starters at the gym? i don't wanna be a creeper and be like you done with the weights, need a spotter , etc .

anyhow, at my gym we got 15 treadmills lined up in a row and ellipticals lined up in front. everytime i get on the treadmill and start running, this chick on the far end of the room on elliptical, gets off and gets on the treadmill next to me.

there are plenty of open treadmills out of the 15, and normally there is nobody x2 left and right of me and she always just takes like a 5 min slow walk next to me texting on her phone and leaves.

so this one time i changed the treadmill i normally use and went to the far end alot of treadmills open and guess what? chick is walking next to me again and leaves after 5 minutes.

im not sure if this chick wants a conversation or what, she just slow walks for 5 min texting on her cell and leaves and im like hm...?

so whats one supposed to do and tbh im a shy kid . maybe chicks dont want the bad boy muscle head dudes no more and want a genuine down to earth asian kid ?

How woule you go about talking to girl normally? If you don't usually talk to them then you can start by saying Hi. Ask what her name is and so on.

Well I was gunna say that it's almost impossible to pick up at the gym without coming off awkwardly or like a creeper, or at least that has been my experience.

Since she does sort of follow you around on the treadmills it definitely opens up an opportunity for you to say something.

I would make a joke out of it, and be like, "Hey, I know you're just pretending to text, so you don't look socially awkward." Give her a smile and take it from there...

1.) How is she dressed? If she is wearing raggy-ass stuff, she's there for business and not usually interested in sweaty dudes talking to her. If she is somewhat presentable, well then she might be open.

2.) The way you describe it sounds like she's looking for a conversation (Using the machine next to you for 5 minutes then leaving - dude, she was waiting for you to say hi). Be yourself. Hi - I've seen you work out here I'm blah blah. If she is working on a machine, go up and ask if she will be long on it -- natural opening.

Oh yeah - this thread is worthless without pics.

in a norm. scenerio like at school, public, etc no problem talking to a chick but the gym feels really weird to try to get with a chick like the other poster said, it is almost impossible to get a chick at the gym.

at first i thought she was walking for 5 minutes to walk off her hardcore elliptical but when i switched machines and yet she still walking next to me felt unusual.

to be put alittle twist this one time the treadmill on the left was occupied and the right wasnt. so i put my gaterade on the right machine to take the spot just to see what the chick does.

so she sees the gaterae bottle on the machine next to me and uses the machine next to that. during the middle of her walk like 2 min in, i pretend i lost my gaterade bottle and got it on the machine next to me. when she saw the machine was not occupied she stopped her walk and used the one next to me...

the chick is always dressed nicely. spandex pants, nice tight shirt revealing alittle stomach like 1 inch . no belly button ring & no tattoos from what i can see and she sweaty from her elliptical (actually works out ) and she hardly wears any makeup on, just alittle liner and thats basically it.

she like 1.5" shorter then me, white, brunette with blonde highlights long hair in pony tail. blue eyes, in shape, and really nice looking . so to sum things up she alittle shorter than me, great shape, mid b size boobs nice ass but and overall very porportional

Umm, how many times has she done this? After like 2 times, I probably would have said something to her. But, yeah, I do agree, it's hard sometimes to seem non-creepy at the gym, but man, she seems to be the one doing all the creepin.

Just say hi and introduce yourself. It's not hard. If she's twice moved to the machine directly next to you, she's probably waiting on you. Don't make her wait any more or she might lose interest. If you're wrong, then you're wrong, no big deal. You really have nothing to lose.

thats what gets me. if im wrong i just made a fool of myself and would be pretty embarassing lol.

this has been going on for roughly 4 weeks now believe it or not. i go to the gym 4-5 days a week and see her 3 times a week. so 3x4= 12 lol.

You won't make a fool out of yourself simply by saying hi to someone and introducing yourself. People meet and talk to new people all the time, there's nothing foolish about that. In fact, it's worrying about making a fool out of yourself too much that will get you into trouble.

IMO, the only thing wrong here is that you're putting way to much emphasis on the fact that you like her. Try to be a little less concerned with that, and what might happen. Just be calm and be yourself.

good shit, alright next time i see her ill give you guys a report back. hopefully my analysis is right and not wrong being she has no intention as to what i was thinking.

im not jacked or anything just fit, you dont normally see hot white chicks hitting on asian dudes all the time . maybe she had a typical bad ass cheat on her and now realized that asians are the best choice .

and hey if i fail i still got FTW

The gym is a tough place to hit on women. I managed to pull it off once, she turned out to be bat-shit crazy but that's besides the point.

I kicked the conversation off by complaining about the crappy audio on the treadmill tv's and managed to get her out for a drink later.

Use a little humor. Chicks love a guy that can make them laugh. Next time say something like, "Ok, if you insist on working out next to me everytime, I'm going to have to start charging my normal training fee." or, "Hey, since we're always gonna work out together, I might as well tell you my name is ______ so you know who you're working out with." Just keep it light. If she's receptive and easy to talk to from there, you'll know how to proceed. Otherwise, you can at least say hello and call her by name when you see her. Can't lose either way.

You could simply say "hi, my name is ____" anf if she responds you can take it from there.

Or if you want to be a little more clever or whatnot you could say something like "if we're gonna be running partners I think we should at least learn each other's name" and smile at her. It's cheesy, corky, whatever but at least it gets you going. That way she knows that you've noticed her too.

Edit: just read CIGARGUY's post above and I agree with what he said (we basically said the same thing lol).
