What's Wrong Here?

Last night- Saturday at 8PM- I was working out and saw 3 young Malibu Beach/ Beverly Hills Hotel quality babes on the ellipticals. They were there when I came in, and there when I left a bit over an hour later. It's Ok for an old guy tryng to stay alive to be in a gym on Saturday, but what are these women doing there?

As far as I could see, no man approached them.

My theory is that they are intimidating to men being young, gorgeous and very fit and familiar with the gym.

Re: What's Wrong Here?

You're right. Most men will not approach because they don't want to be "shot down in flames." They think the girls are "out of their league." It's a common complaint of many beautiful women - no one will ask them out. Did you get any numbers?

Re: What's Wrong Here?

As far as them being in the gym at 8pm, they were probably getting in a work out before going out for the night. Heck dh and I kid each other all the time before going to bed at 9 that we could get dressed and go out like we did 15 years ago. We usually laugh and just go to bed.

Re: What's Wrong Here?

Did they have wedding rings on?

- If so, move on! - If they didn't and they want to picked up they should split up! - 3 women in a group are harder to approach, because 2 of them are always listening in. And most women that I've met are not into a 'male sandwich'.

If you don't know if they had wedding rings on, you weren't paying attention!

Good grief, I could have a great conversation in the surf lineup-- but standing on an elliptical for over an hour? What's to talk about? What in the world gives them enough time to spend it that way?

Maybe they're ER'd...
