Ever have one of those days where you get home and you just want to listen to some damned music and relax in an easy chair, but then you realize you do not have an easy chair?

Dammit. Want to relax, but not tired enough to take a nap, but this chair is not comfortable enough to actually relax in... sigh.

Best place to meet women is wherever you see a woman

If you're the type that can stroll up and talk, do it.

whatever you do, don't look at her too much while you're trying to decide whether you should talk to her or not. girls i know sort of expect to get hit on in gyms so they're sort of looking for creepers all the time. most of the time they find it irritating if someone comes up and talks to them in the middle of a workout (or even resting between stations) so wait until they're done.

I'm a chick, wait until we're done working out.

The good thing about meeting a girl at the gym is there's a good chance she likes sports too. To be honest, I like meeting guys at gyms since I know for dates we can go to sporting events more than likely as there's a good chance he's into sports, too.

A quick remark or a joke about something they're talking about is usually the best way to start a conversation. Build your way into it and see if they start including you in the conversation once they know you listened to a bit of what they said (just don't be creepy about it or be too obvious that you're listening to what they're saying). If it's a women by herself, might be a little harder as she's probably not talking and just listening to music or something while she's working out.

Thanks haha, my friend was telling me that's its not a good place cause women don't like to be hit on while they're working out. I'll definitely keep what you said in mind haha.

Sporty girls are the best.

I don't know how to approach women lol.

Most girls I see at the gym are either with a friend and working out or alone listening to their music.

Yeah, I don't think I'd like to be hit on while I was working out if I were a woman either

Was she on the hamster wheel or lifting weights?

Went to the Mall of America today. I got two pairs of jeans that I badly needed. I also went to the hockey lodge or whatever it is on the first floor. I grabbed a green Zucker T-shirt and was going to call it good, then as I was walking toward the counter, the worker guy pulls out a fresh stack of Brodin shirts. I grabbed that as well. Both same style, same color, but both players are awesome so I don't regret it at all.

My girlfriend also picked up a new bikini

Stopped to eat lunch at the American Grill or Ranch or whatever on the 3rd floor. I got a Juicy Lucy and it was delicious.

Overall, a good day.

I just found out Paul Bearer died.

That brings back some good childhood memories.

If a girl actively wants you to talk to her, she will take out her earphones. Not saying it absolutely means she wants you (or someone else) to approach because it could be she just ran out of juice but if she's listening to music and then stops, it might be a sign.

"Excuse me, did you want me to hit on you or are you just in need of some juice?"

Other guaranteed successes include
"You should be a station, because my eyes are getting a workout. And my heart is doing crazy reps. I think I need to sit down. Whew.
Alright, second set. LET'S DO THIS! YEAH! CONDITIONING! So you busy later? Because I'm doing squat... s. YEAH I AM KILLING IT OVER HERE. WHOOOO THIRD SET LET'S GO"

"How much you bench? Pffp [stifled spitting] I mean whoa, that's pretty good!"

"Don't forget to towel your buttsweat lagoon off that seat, uh, baby."

Girls who lift = hot

Just don't compliment her on her squat form

I'm terrible at any and all forms of flirting, but the idea of a pick up line isn't to impress or turn her on, but to get her to laugh. So anything you can say that might make her smile or laugh is good. Or even just smiling and saying hello, and if you see her again, same thing, try and strike up a conversation. Just don't continue to creepily smile or stare at her.

For the most part everything is out of your control, as any girl you're interested in will have to find you attractive, be single, and be in a relatively good mood. But you're not proposing marriage, just saying hello.

Probably. I'd guess either they could take the stitching of the letters out and stitch new ones in, swap out the name bar, or maybe put a new bar over the letters if they were glued on.

Why in the hell did you get a Barker jersey? Lose a bet or something?

I actually figured he'd be good, plus he's a Winnipeg kid. I now use my brain when selecting who's name to get on my jersey.
