Getting picked up at the gym. Oh joy.
I recently had a conversation with my trainer about how I react to being hit on at the gym. The first words out of my mouth were that I just avoid making eye contact at all costs. And yet somehow even that is never enough… some guys know what they want and nothing is going to stop them. Which is great, when it’s the right guy… and lets be real, it’s not usually “the right guy.” Granted, as much as I try to avoid it, these situations make for some great stories! So without further ado, here is the story of the day I learned to avoid eye contact:
I had been to the dentist earlier that morning to have a cavity filled and they had some issues getting my mouth to freeze, so they kept injecting and injecting and injecting. Until the entire left side of my face was frozen. I lost the ability to smile as well as the use of my left eyelid. The dental hygienist told me that if I got my heart rate up, the freezing would leave my system more quickly. Since I had my gym clothes with me, I got in my car and trucked off to the gym. I was on the stationary bike when I noticed a guy on the weight room floor, uh …winking at me? I looked over again a few minutes later and realized he was definitely winking away. Then it hit me. My frozen face had turned my blinking into winking. He thought that I had been winking at him that whole time!!! Poor guy!
How do you feel about being hit on at the gym? Is it flattering or tiring? Have any funny stories?
