I'm not very social and I realize how it's not good to be alone in this world.
>are you the owner of a vagina?
nope, I cant even make a joke about owning the vagina of my gf, because >tfw virgin desu
am in Germany desu
>hey, could you spot me
next time you see the same person
>hey, can you spot me
pretty much any more talking will make you seem like a tryhard faggot with no friends
rinse & repeat and pray for friends
>pretty much any more talking will make you seem like a tryhard faggot with no friends
someone is afraid to go out of his cocon
I dont actually do a lot besides studying and lifting desu. What did you guys do?
>Wait til you're regular enough that people start saying "alright" to you
>saying "alright" to you
>alright to you
Old guy talks to me and a friend sometimes. He has jean shorts and overhears us talking about games.
>Talking about the religion mechanic in civ5
>Starts a religious debate
>Talking about fucking with Russians in DoTA2
>Starts a debate about the Balkans
It's not safe
Can't you guys be serious? I am serious about this.
honestly man maybe I'm just not cool enough but I think the gym would be one of the toughest places to meet someone.
by all means, if you get someones name and start getting into a conversation, definitely extend the offer for some bro time with the xbox post lift but I think most people just want to be left alone.
it would be better to find groups based on your interests. these are more likely to contain people who are interesting to you and vice versa. try meetup.org (which hopefully includes your city) or a similar site. in any case, find hobby groups that match up with your interests, or, if you don't have any hobbies, just try out new stuff until you find something cool (or just something that attracts a cool group of people/people like you)
Well it seems you don't have any social tact.
gotta work small and work your way up. Start with making eye contact with your parents when you have a conversation then go back in time and make friends in high school.
Don't you trust us anon? We're the ones with friends. We're the experts here. Obviously your method isn't working, why not give our a shot? What do you have to lose? not your friends, thats for sure.
As an oldfag in 15 years or so of trainingon and off I haven't ever made a single friend at a gym. Within weeks or months of joining a powerlifting club I made many. Join your local powerlifting or oky lifting club if you want gym brahs.
>tfw no funny group of delray misfits at my gym
I also workout at fitx and the most I interact with someone is when I go early in the morning because the same people will always be there working out.
If you are looking to socialize you should try some of the fitx courses though.. you'll have a much easier time connecting to someone
Odd. Any time I go during peak hours at least someone tries to start small talk with me.
Not really into it. They typically either want advice or just wanna talk about fitness to break the ice because it's something we obviously have in common, but I can't anonymously shitpost meme lifts at them, so I'm not really into it.
Going after 8:00 PM is the best. No one there to bother me or share equipment with. Also staff isn't there so I can bare-ass walk from the bathroom to the sauna like a goddamned champion.
Let me spot your squat. We can exchange lifting plugs then go back to my place.
Is this what I think it is?
You'll find out in the locker room, fuckboy.
Why doesn't fit do one of those google map things that other boards do? Its like each user puts themselves on a google maps page. That way we can know if any autist go to our gyms!
really simple, op.
1. lift heavy and for a while until the local powerlifting guys notice you
2. don't be shy to ask for spots, form check etc
3. casually start conversations
4. greet them when you enter the gym and say goodbye when you leave
5. earn their respect by lifting even heavier. every social circle needs some sort of initiation. in the gym it's staying for a certain time and lifting heavy.
or just don't be a fucking bioloser
Best advice I've ever taken to heart is to be excited/happy/positive when meeting or saying hi to soneone. If someone says hi to you and you give a weak, expressionless, dull, or nervous 'hi' back, then they're not gonna feel very good back because they got a negative vibe from you. So just relax and be positive. It's made my life so much better.
