i have this humongous crush on this girl at my gym and finally decided to say hello yesterday.

so i went up to her and said "hello my name is jake" and stuck out my hand.

she proceeded to look at it for 3 seconds before shaking it and saying her name.

i asked where she was from and that was that.

my question is: am i an idiot if i talk to her again after she made it look like she had no interest in shaking my hand? if i dont then dont i look like an idiot if indeed she is interested but is simply playing games?

argh.

She was probably just not expecting someone to walk about of nowhere and introduce themself.

was it really 3 seconds?- because that's a long time...

next time you see her- make eye contact and base your position solely on that- if she smiles, then good. if she looks away then bad- for 2 reasons- she may not be interested/already have a boyfriend/etc. or she is playing games- and you don't need it.


because who the hell wants games

^^^^If she looks away, that doesnt necessarily mean that she's not interested.

If I quickly turn away, it's always because i'm intimidated by a girl I find attractive. Sometimes it's hard to look her in the eye and smile, and other times it comes naturally.

Women get hit on all the time, maybe she was just assessing the situation.
Girls these days have to be careful there lots of losers out there and they're usually the ones with balls to talk to a lady.
When a fine upstanding individual such as yourself walks up, it's always hoped for but rarely happens so she may not have known what to make of it..... Thus the 3 second stare.
Next time you pass her look confident and directly into her eyes and say Hi Latonya! Or whatever her name is. This way you can build a rapport, get to know her and she'll get to know you... Unless, you just want her as a love puppet ...

if you went up to her at the gym, chances are she might not have wanted to shake your hand because your/her hand was sweaty and gross. you see the amount of effort people take in cleaning off teh equipment before using them.

try again next time, but go into the shower and talk to her in there. at least you'll be clean.

good point- this happens to me as well. but a snub after you know someone's name is an indication in my books.

i love you all.

most my friends said i was toast because of the "elaine benes" theory that states: women dont go to gyms to be picked up.

BUT alot of women say theyre tired of the bar scene and a gym is different in that sense cuz there is no expectation there.

at least i didnt say anything dumb and just said hello which she might have been surprised at.

ahh whatever at least i can enjoy this week while i'm in cuba knowing at least i trried instead of wondering.

thanks y'all..

I've heard both of these statements a lot too. But I think the general apprehension that you experienced might have been out of surprise/slight intimidation. It takes balls these days to pull something like that, and is an uncommon, but very sensible approach. At the present time, we're locked in to a mating dance ritual that just plain sucks, offers mixed messages, and strikes me as just plain stupid and pretentious. Don't be too irked by her caution, she was probably a little unsure as to what to do.

Exactly, and like I said, it takes balls to do something like that. Take some pride in having the courage to be that straight up and upfront about it.

Yeah, i dont think women like to be picked up at the gym, but if you wanted to get to know her you didnt have to be so direct with an introduction out of no where. try doing the same excercises around her and mention how you like the burn your lats feel on this so and so machine.

I've noticed a few girls at my gym too, but never bothered with an approach mainly because, i would hate to create an awkward environment if i was every shot down.

This is what I thought about this.
If she did not like you, would she even give you her name?
I doubt it.

And I really think that the reason why she did not shake your hand is because of the gym thingy.
Do not take me wrong.
It is not that you probably appeared kinda dirty or anything..but
even you were clean, in general, the gym is full of dirty germs..
people pass around the germs..so i think that's most likely why she did not hand shake you...


i agree with lift on the next time plan.

:)

never forget to smile.
i mean smile rules :)

and make sure you let go of the belief that *you are trying to hit on her*..cause if you do, you are just scaring her away.
try to have a belief rather *i would like to be friends with you {first}* sort of a thought :)

good luck.

i was picked up by males at the gym.
and when one of the guys said:

"i have always seen you doing your cardio..and working hard..and there was something different about you"

that phrased worked, and i decided to hang around with him..

i did hang around with him..did some weight with him also..
never really bugged me (maybe because i am like a man in a sense of working out)..

but yeah.

so try to be creative. :) hehe.

kudos for you for giving it a shot, and just wanting to have a conversation that hopefully wasn't goal-oriented (i.e. to get her number) but yeah, handshake might not be the best idea in a gym...

and maybe the fact you have a humongous crush was apparent in the sense you looked a bit nervous...i always find that if I havent' spoken to someone fairly soon that I find attractive, and days or weeks go by, it just gets worse to approach them...not as natural...

here's what I say....fuck "The Rules".

They're dumb and pointless. If you want to approach a girl/guy, approach them. If you want to call them, call them...none of this "wait for 3 days" shit....:rolleyes:

it only takes most girls 3 seconds to decide if you will be a shag partner. she probably was doing the cost/benefit analysis in her head during those 3 seconds if the benefits of becoming your squeeze toy outweighed the costs of meeting someone new, getting to know them, etc.etc.

regardless, the fact that she dealyed probably meant she is either taken, or just not interested, or not impressed with your traditional striaghtforward , 1950's howdy approach.

Speaking of squeeze toy, the girl in that video used to party quite a lot. any sightings??????

next time you see her approach her from behind. proceed to drag your cock up her leg, then smack her in the ass, and say something sensual like "hey you like fuckin dont ya?" or "you're not one of them pussy suckers are ya?"

works everytime.
That is soooo wrong... in soooo many ways! :eek: :rolleyes:

You have all seem to forgotten the main point ... girls suck ass!
They're all about playing head games and making you feeling guilty for stuff you didn't even do
How come it's alright for a girl to act all bitchy and she can pass it off as being tired
BUT ... when a guy tries to do the same all of the sudden he's a complete asshole
I just don't understand :mad:
