Okay. So everybody does it. If nothing else, it is extremely entertaining...especially when you find an article like the one below (btw- it's being written by a girl-who will remain anonymous for privacy and embarrassment on my end). Read it. The last line of the 'pick up conversation' is the best...Dallin, if this ever happens to you, use it.
How to get picked up on in a gym.
This past weekend while I was at the gym with my boo, I was minding my own business struting my stuff on the elliptical. I don't even think I had make up on, and I was more than likely sweating. Very attractive I might add. I had my InTouch magazine with me just in case I got super bored watching VH1 reality shows. Then all the sudden a guy comes up to the Eliptical next to me, and leans over to get my attention.
He asks "Can I read this"?
I was a lil bugged out.. and said.. "Ugh I guess so, as long as you bring it back!"
Douche: "Actually, I just thought you were cute, and wanted to come say hi."
L: "Well thank you, but thats my boyfriend over there.. (pointing to the biggest guy in the gym, which of course is Brad) "
Then he comes up with a line to redeem himself..
D: "Thats okay, my boyfriend is right over there too."
REALLY? Who honestly picks up on people at the gym? I admit every now and then (before I had a boyfriend) ;) I would check guys out randomly. But I would never try and flirt or hit on them. Also.. Who gets all pretty to go to the gym?! As I was walking out one day, a girl had her hair did all curly, make up on, and a cute lil outfit. I admit, I still try and wear a cute outfit to the gym.. but I rarely wear makeup and my hair is always up in a ponytail. The gym is the last place I want to impress someone.
