>Finish lifting weights then go over to the nearest treadmill to do some cardio before leaving

>"No! There are atleast ten free treadmills, get away from me and go on one of them"
Did I actually do something wrong guys, or was she just a bitch?
They were mostly all free and not near other people
I don't understand why she didn't want me on that one particular treadmill though. She came alone, so it wasnt like her boyfriend was using it or anything
thats a ridiculous thing to worry about from her perspective. I would've laughed at her and told her not to flatter herself.
That being said, do you get annoyed when a dude pisses next to you when there's like 30 open urinals?
She's the kind of woman that thinks she's always the centre of attention. I don't talk or socialise with anyone at the gym, I don't know why she thought she would be an exception
Bc she thinks she's hot shit and that everyone who talks to her or is near her is going to try and hit on her. Should've just laughed at her desu senpai. No woman is that important. And you certainly shouldn't use another treadmill just bc she thinks you should. You fucking beta chump.
She was just being a drama queen bitch.
Don't worry OP. Unless you were staring at/taking pictures of her before this went down (or something equally weird and creepy) you did nothing wrong.
yeah she was being a little bitch-ey
kinda bummed you didn't hit her with a quick rebuttal
>'don't flatter yourself'
>'oooor you can move? I'm perfectly comfortable here'
>go on the treadmill on the other side of her
Thanks for sharing your opinions guys, I think the general consensus is that I wasnt in the wrong, but it's good manners to give someone space if possible.
I've been stressing over this all night before I decided to post to you guys, now that I no i didnt do anything wrong, Im actually kinda pissed off.
Next time I see her there I'm going to go up next to her and do it again. How do you think this will play out, and if she says anything, what should be my reply?
You should probably just drop it OP
Cuz of how you handled it the first time, if you do it again she'll definitely think you're an autistic creep and probably report you
Some battles aren't worth fighting
I think a lot of people might be coming to the wrong conclusions here. What if OP isn't the victim? What if he is a fucking filthy cunt? There's a few grotty motherfuckers at my gym that don't wear deodorant, and I sure as fuck wouldn't want them within 5 meters of me
alpha cardio bunny but the autist in his place
wtf is wrong with you? why would you go to the one right next to her?
shit is distracting to have someone running right next to you, esp when the whole fucking thing is open
it's ok, learn from your mistakes :^)
I've had that happen where there's plenty of open cardio machines but someone parks there ass right next to me. Man and woman can't stand that shit. I got annoyed once that a friend sat right next to me in an empty movie theater instead of leaving a one seat buffer
>implying I'd listen to any chick doing cardio
>implying I could hear them due to my headphones
>implying I would give a fuck if someone told me to use a different machine 6 rows over
Should've told the cunt to fuck off mate.
She is just a bitch, women feel entitled to space when arround men. They are a person in society like anyone else, using the one next to her is not that odd. Her bringing it up is mega odd tho.
Not even gonna read the thread.
Don't care if this has been said:
You're a fucking moron. Would you use a urinal right next to a man if there were plenty available?
Walk into a mostly empty train/bus and there's only one passenger - some girl. Would you sit right next to her if there are a bunch of other seats available?
Why not give people space if it's available? Dumb fucking faggot. I hate people like you. No one wants to be around you.
I'll always try to at least give one treadmill gap if possible to anyone for the matter. My gym has some iffy treadmills so at the very least I'll try to give the gap, but if it acts up (doesn't detect user, wobbles, etc.) I'll move next to them if need be but at least they'll see I tried to give them space.
Like others have said if there were literally a ton of other functional treadmills she's not a HUGE bitch but still a little bit of one for speaking up and phrasing it "get away from me" instead of "Sorry can you move over I'm really trying to concentrate" or something.
That being said I've been the victim of this by older people. I've experienced this with older people usually. We have about 20 treadmills (two rows of 10) and I've had people legit plop right next to me. I don't know if they're looking for conversation? Even though sometimes I'm running and always have headphones in.
I'm sure you're a stand up guy and everything but a lot of guys do annoy women in the gym by "coincidentally" picking a "random" workstation that just happens to give them the chance to stare at their butt, tits, or make unwanted conversation.
Think of it this way, if you were pissing at a urinal, and there were 10 unoccupied ones in a row, it would be a bit weird if some guy walked up and chose to stand right next to you. Its not against the law, it doesn't mean he's definitely hitting on you, its just a bit uncomfortable. That's why urinal etiquette exists. Just try to use the same approach with gym equipment.
Let it lie, man.
Yes, she overreacted and came off a bit hostile. No, you didn't deserve it. But from her pov you might have seemed intrusive or threatening (or so damn good looking that she doubted her ability to resist cheating on her bf with you right then and there, ooh la la). Just give her some space if that's what she wants. You might not hit on women in gyms but women do get hit on in gyms, so forgive her a little insecurity.
Kek, her space is her treadmill. She was just being an entitled brat. OP should've laughed and kept running, why the fuck do women think they have the right to act like princesses all the time? Reverse the genders here and nobody would defend a guy over this
i do that sometimes
if there are 5 tread mills and she is on number 1 i go on number 2 so its... neat
if she is on 2, i go on 1. if she is on 4 i go on 5.
the next person that joins always breaks the rule though, fuck those guys.
also if youre alone and on 3 fuck you, seriously go fuck yourself.
bet youre the kind of guy who would piss next to someone in a bathroom with loads of free urinals
Fuck her op if the treadmills are empty im still gonna run next to the girl. She was probably testing you to see how much she could get away with in a realationship with you. Should have told her to go to a different treadmill
The urinal analogy is stupid, there aren't bare genitals flapping about on treadmills yo. Bus? Different too, in a bus you'd be sitting pretty much rubbing shoulders while treadmills it really doesn't fucking hinder you at all whether or not someone's using the next one lmao wtf.
Autists and their "treadmill etiquette", I swear.
If other treadmills are all empty, I'd find it threatening as well op. It also sounds like you're not very attractive or at least smelly or something. If you were good looking I guarantee you this wouldn't be an issue
I'm really disappointed you moved.
If she wants the seclusion so bad, SHE can move.
Or go the fuck home and sulk.
>get away from me
Rustled. Don't ever bitch out like that again, OP.
The real question is: what is the TV placement like? Did you pick that treadmill so you could watch a specific TV with what you wanted on it?
That's the only acceptable reason anon. She is also a bitch.
Dudes in urinals are pissing with their dicks out, they are exposed and they feel more vulnerable.
Sitting next to a person in a bus is directly invading their personal space, the way most public transportation seats are.
But a fucking row of treadmills? I think the bitch should have had enough personal space to not feel violated. Asking some guy who probably never even looked at her twice to move over because she felt threatened or annoyed is asinine.
You did nothing wrong, she was an entitled cunt. You should have answered something like I'm working out where I want, feel free to post about it on tumblr.
>not telling her to change the situation herself rather than relying on others to change it for her
This is why women like her are entitled. If she had a problem and you were not doing anything wrong, she should have moved rather than asking someone who is not doing anything wrong to change what they are doing in order to accommodate her.
Op, she was a dumb bitch who thought you were trying to creep on her or some shit. Although it is a bit awkward to choose the treadmill next to her instead of any other ones, who the fuck cares? You sure as hell shouldn't, in fact you should have laughed in that entitled cunt's face and carried on with your workout.
I know you're beta, but you can change that op. Don't blindly bend over for people.
I had a black friend who called me gay when I sat next to him one time lol. After that, I would leave a buffer when going out with other friends and they though I was weird for that
The black kid was 300 lbs at 12 years old. No exaggeration, I was with him in the hospital after I accidentally hit him in the eye with a rubber band and heard one of the nurses talking about it
hey man you wouldn't want someone to use a urinal right next to you right?
I use the urinal next to people just to make them uncomfortable.
Daily reminder "creepy" is a female meme of the worst sort and is literally a meaningless pejorative ascribed to men deemed unfuckable, the more unfuckable, the greater potential magnitude of "creepiness"
>I dont know how to describe it, he just gave me this feeling
>he thought he had a chance, how dare he!!
>told her not to flatter herself
Alpha. Shoulda just had a spine and smirked and said, don't worry, you're not my type, and then dismissively scoffed, your headphones back in and kept working out.
If you're a beta tho which it sounds like you are yr body language would give everything away and you'd just sound like a spaz
Bro I just walk up with headphones on and run, don't pay attention to shit. If she tries to stop you, give her a look of confusion and disgust and keep running as you brush her away.
>This will make her horny as fuck
From here it's all in your hands Jose
This (at worst)
I agree most people would leave one if they could. But not to do it isn't that bad. To take issue with someone who doesn't, and assume they chose the one next to you to because they wanted to be close to you is extremely conceited. So yeah she's a bitch.
If a guy chose a treadmill next to my gf, when there were others free I wouldn't think anything.
It's either you stank or she was a huge bitch. I remember walking past a man with extreme odor in the gym one time, it smelled like sour old socks and rotting flesh. He didn't seem to notice his own stench but my eyes watered.
