    I was looking for some suggestions whether or not to pursue anything with this girl who works at my gym. Every time i go she is overly friendly, asks a lot of questions etc. I have a good feeling she wants to get to know me better, but is it a good idea to start anything at a place you go frequently. I am leaning towards no, because of a girl i used to date in the past, joined my gym, When she sees me when she is there, she always makes sure to give me a nasty look for some reason, which i think is pretty immature.

    How do you even have time to spark up conversation with someone at the gym? I go in, scan my badge then toss in my headphones and start my workout. *IF* I see someone there I know I'll give them the 'ol head nod while I'm lifting or running, but full blown conversation...?

    Sorry, I really have nothing to add to this since I have no experience in this specific situation. However I can't image this is different than anything else. After talking for a couple mins just say "Hey so I need to start my work out but when are you off? Can I take you to dinner if I promise to shower first?" :bigthumb:

    thanks for the advice. I am the same way about going to the gym, all business and no talk. Every time i walk in she is like behind the desk or at the table and starts asking me questions, so i would feel rude just ignoring her and walking by. I usually just smile and say hello then she starts the talking. good advice though.

    Most of the receptionists at my gym are usually pretty friendly that way. I don't really assume anything of it.... :dunno:

    They're essentially hired guns (attractive women who are paid to be friendly because it's good for business). I mean, it's not to the same extent as bartenders, waitresses, or strippers, but still; don't misinterpret their friendliness as interest.

    This.

    That said, don't avoid asking someone out just because you see them regularly. That's typically how people meet their SOs. Through friends, at work, at church, etc. It's perfectly normal. If you're worried about what will happen when you break up, you're setting yourself up for failure.

    On a more practical level... get on the treadmill and get abit of sweat going. If you see her walking by, wipe the sweat off your eyebrows with your shirt...accidently exposing your abs. The 'old wipe the sweat and show your abs' technique...:mamoru:

    they're normal people with normal interests. she's a "hired gun" because she's working at the time? she has no incentive to be overly nice to you.

    the best way you can go about this is briefly greeting her on your way in/farewell on your way out. once there is some rapport, you can sit and chat with her on days that aren't busy.

    I've gone out with 3 girls that worked the front desk at my gym. they are usually bored to death at work. there were days where I would sit and chat for 45 minutes and they'd beg me to stay longer.

    wat? since when do girls care if you join a fraternity? :hsugh:

    :rofl: @ all the guys getting on Beth for calling a girl a whore. Guys always say shit like that without any basis other than being pussy hurt and no one gives them half as much shit. Beth sounds like she's speaking from experience and I, for one, believe her. In fact, if you're paying attention, guys, she just told you that the hot girl that works at the front desk at the gym will probably bone you. Why are you sitting on a message board calling her a liar instead of finding out for yourself? :mamoru:
