At first I was flabbergasted. Not at the idea of getting my own workout partner, but that my friend was actually dating people online. This is the same fit woman who refuses to shop online for fear of credit card fraud, yet here she is signing up to personals sites. It’s kind of funny. Usually love makes you do stupid things, not smart ones. At least, that’s been my personal experience. On a related note, is anybody on the market for $200 worth of dog food? Please don’t ask me why I bought it.
Anyway, my buddy said that if I had a workout partner, not only would I be on my way towards becoming a strong, healthy, fit man, but also I’d be on the right track towards finding true love. Intrigued, I asked her to elaborate. Here’s where things got a little sketchy, but rang a little true.
According to her, if I entered a strictly platonic relationship with a fellow “chubster” (her word), then she’d let her guard down as we lost weight together. As we start to get to know each other better, as well as become more physically attractive, the odds of that relationship staying platonic start to go down. In other words, by the time I become more athletically inclined, I’m likely to have a fit girlfriend by my side.
I took my friend’s advice to heart and started searching for someone to work out with. Naturally, the first thing I did was mess things up. My first partner was already a fit woman, so the intensity of the workout was a little bit more than I can handle. You know, if you consider passing out from lack of oxygen to be “a little bit” problematic.
My second date hasn’t been scheduled yet, but it’s going to be a much milder exercise program. We’re just going to go for a bit of a walk at first, by window shopping to keep it entertaining. Then we’ll head back to her place to get our geek on while working out. God bless motion-sensing video games that turn exercise into fun!
