Can we all just admit the primary reason we lift is for positive attention from the opposite sex?
I lift to look better. looking better makes me feel better. I don't expect a girl to drop into my lap because of it. I'm autistic as fuck and when I get lucky it literally feels like luck.
that's what it starts out as. but once you realize that no matter how aesthetic you are, you will still be a beta fag.
at that point, you've already realized that you like lifting for fun now and that it is a hobby
Yeah I started for that reason.
Then I got the attention.
Then I realised I hated the attention because I was (and still am) socially retarded and can't handle being in that situation.
So now Im basically alone for good.
Self induced isolation, it's hard to get out of once you've done it for so long.
For real guys, Lexi Belle got fat. It's. Gross.
Go on brazzers and search for her 2016 scene. The most offending pictures of her fatness are NSFW.
I lift to get mired by various women, doesn't matter what they rank. They'll all get turned down. More and more I'm able to enjoy the look on their faces when they realize they'll never get any. Sure, some don't care.
The chick that turned me down two years ago sure did though.
>men aspire to look like fiction
>women get offended at the mere thought
Men confirmed master race.
Well yeah I'd like chicks to talk to me.
Honestly I'm pretty sure a coupla chicks liked me but I've been too self conscious to do anything about.
Literal plan is to ignore them and my feelings until someone leaves
>Stoya's rape allegations
Bloody hell time to fully embrace my 2D's
This shit again
I started lifting because I was facing several felony charges and was looking at a long time in prison, I got a heads up that indictments were coming and fled to the Philippine islands where I hid and lifted for four years, eventually returned to the states and found out the warrants were in state only and they weren't gonna pay for extradition, now I lift because I like it and everyone is intimidated
the original reason was to get grills attention, but once you experience the joy of lifting that goes out and the window and it's all about that great feeling of success and accomplishment
Um, more like same sex. But I definitely don't do it for that, I'm taken after all, I just feel better if I work out, and that's reason enough, I'm not trying to get big gains, just maintenance
>lifting for that lexi belle meat curtains
not me f a m
Why is everyone in this thread so desperate to prove they are lifting for some specific inane reason?
Like seriously what, nobody ever has cared about why I play with my 3D printer or why I enjoy hiking, honestly I don't even think about why I do it but then you get to this thread and people are getting so butthurt that nobody believes you lift to avenge your 4th cousin's life of trauma or some stupid bullshit
well people gotta pretend that eating food and doing exercise for 4-6 hours a week is taking considerable WILLPOWER and effort and generally almost no one can do it.
Its the same delusion every board has, doesnt matter if its music, games, anime, books or watching the fucking news.
Was already hot enough to get laid on the reg without lifting so thats a no from me son.
The people who actually fucking lifts doesnt care what girls think of their bodies, they do it for themselves. I can see how virgins and other insecure people would lift for approval of girls though.
Sex is a really big deal, for the people who are not getting it.
I started out thinking it would help, then attention of women came and I realised I dont really like them or being around them [one on one ( no homo tho)] cus they are boring predictable creatures. Now I train to get better faster stronger and start a fight club
>boring predictable creatures
Some seem smart or interesting at first but once you get past their games they are identical and relationships play out exactly the same way. Maybe its just the age though, im 21, maybe people change
I did back in 2003, and it did bring in a few ladies, one of which later became my wife.
After that I got comfortable and lazy and I became skinnyfat. My wife is the one that actually encouraged me to start running and I'm glad she did. I run 10k three times a week and I'm back to doing pushups and situps. I quit soda, junk food, candy, and fast food. My diet could still use some improvement but I'm doing 1800 calories or less daily.
I haven't weighed myself yet, but Im starting to fit into old clothes that had gotten tight and my wedding ring is starting to slip off more often.
>bbw queen siri retired
I never claimed otherwise. If it wasn't for chicks mirin I would be laughing at all the dumb jocks lifting weights and doing other pleb shit while I spend my time doing things with my intellect.
At first yeah but now I have some fitness goals I want to accomplish. I couldn't care less about women now. If they want to see me they know where I am. Otherwise I'll just be practicing my handstand or cooking some nice meals
>tfw you can lift all you want but you'll never be attractive enough to eyefuck random cuties on public transport and make them wet
Because girls feel safe with themselves being around men they feel 0 attraction to. Like if you're even average she may worry she'll fuck things up. They've already rejected the fatass or the old guy in their mind, so if they start talking to her, she's not worried about escalation
"You started lifting to get girls, but you quickly realized the real reason you lift is to be better than people."
For real though I'm genuinely addicted to the endorphin release at this point. I probably couldn't stop if I tried. Building a home gym was the worst decision I've ever made, I haven't taken a rest day since 2015 and my joints are falling apart.
No, I started lifting because the doctor told me to, I continue because I'm scared of going back to being a weak skinnyfat with back pains without energy to do anything. It also feels great to be strong. Also this:
>be beta fag
>lift for 10 years
>5 last is /plg
>some grill at work mirin' hard
>everytime i know she's staring i go CONCENTRATION 9001 MODE ON
So don't bother lifting if u have 4chan level of autism.
There's a contextual level to creeps. Creeps are more likely to get a negative public reaction in certain locations (clubs/bars, parties) and in groups than alone and in more innocuous places (like public transit). An average looking guy is more likely to speak to her, while a fat guy or old dude are less likely due to insecurity, but even if they do she's already immune to them in her mind
Im no expert on girls but it doesnt seem they fall so easily so they would need to mentally prepare for the off-chance that a guy would speak to them
I mean hell, most girls i see already have headsets or ear buds on so its not likely someone would try to talk to em anyway
>Ive had less attention since i lifted but in still lifting
I mean lifting for girls is kind of silly but i thought of it like a perk, you know?
Lift for fun and myself but also to improve chances of getting chicks
But it does seem it has a negative effect on chicks
I'm sick and tired of this shit.
You fuckers are autistic, boring hopeless losers that lift weights solely as an exercise in vanity and insult people who actually care more about the sport of it over just looking "shredded"
With your newly acquired bodies you then go to the shittiest places in the country full of the lowest common denominator human beings who want to "drink and party" all day, and then you are fucking surprised when you didn't fucking pick up a chick who wasn't a fucking retard?
You pick up worthless women because you are a shallow worthless fuck too. There are smart attractive women (not 10/10 or even 8's most of the time) who want to have committed relationships and you can talk about with a plethora of things, but you will never get that because you don't realize that you are just as vain, boring, empty and predictable as the women you criticize.
Make some fucking maturity gains yourself before writing off the opposite sex completely retard.
Me and you both anon. I'm still DYEL by fit's standards but I've started to get lots of attention at work especially since I've started wearing short sleeve shirts and I just don't like the attention. I'd rather be alone. I lift now for myself and to be healthy.
fuck that shit
i lift to make america great again
I exercise because I enjoy it friend, I have more energy for day to day activities. I've started eating cleaner and drinking water instead of soda. I can concentrate better and my minds sharper. I enjoy life more everyday because I feel healthier and more confident. Also I have a girlfriend and we don't have many boundaries so I think the illusion of attraction is rip
Can you just admit that you're projecting so hard that you feel the need to validate yourself in the failure that you produced because women didn't notice you after you thought they would when you started lifting?
well, i actually dont lift for girls, i lift cause i kinda have a fetish for having control, so when having sex i like to be able to pin down my gf, to toss her around and such. I hardly ever brag about being fit and my clothes arent ment to show anything
I don't lift for girls. I honestly don't. I mean looking shredded certainly doesn't hurt when I'm talking to ladies, but that was never a driving reason I did it. It just started as a hobby. It was really the only thing I was ever any good at. To be good at sports you need talent. Being good at school is really hit or miss, either you're smart or you're not. But lifting, all you need is to show up and be willing to give everything you fucking got.
I remember back in highschool I took a weightlifting class sophmore year. The teacher didnt give a fuck what any of us did, so most of the guys just jerked off in the corner, but I worked my ass off every class. I had no idea what the fuck I was doing, so I bench pressed every class. I started barely doing 35's on each side of the bar, but by the end of the year I could bench 225. and now 5 years later I can't just stop
Primary reason is for confidence an a commanding presence. Physical features are extremely important psychologically, internally and externally. I've though a lot about it and I just don't want to fuck random 6/10 sluts, I want nice, genuine, high quality girls.
I don't lift specifically for women. I lift because being in shape is putting your best foot forward with the world. So IF I happen to find someone that I can stand to be around, at least I'm showing up with the best I have physically. By no means do I expect, nor really desire attention simply because I have a 6-pack or some bullshit like that. I keep that shit in check constantly.
Outside of that though, I lift because I want the satisfaction of setting a difficult goal and achieving it. It just so happens that lifting covers multiple bases for me.
Now that makes me wonder about why women exercise since it seems all direct replies to OP were men.
But hey! at least girls sit next to you ;)
We don like yer kind round ere.
You've finally done it, all my years of resisting being a boipussy lover, have crumpled as I jerk off to this. For real tho, can anyone resist homosexuality that is /fit/ ?
Also n-no homo
I can honestly say that I don't. I'm a grill and lifting just makes me look more masculine (I mean I have crossed the point where it does.)
I've never gotten male attention and I sure as hell won't get any when cycling and basically looking more and more like a man.
for attention seeking, beta cunts like you maybe. I lift because I'm fucking awesome and makes me feel invincible, bow the fuck down faggot
opposite sex, you white knight beta cunt
Damn... Same here anon.
I started because I was was diagnosed with cancer then learned it was a misdiagnosis and during that time I thought I was dying I completely fucked my grades up in college and dropped out. I had nothing I was good at, couldn't go back to school cause I fucked it up too bad to get loans again, and couldn't get a decent paying job because I was a scrawny nothing. So I started lifting, and I was good at it. And now I'm a few weeks away from my CPT exam and it's gonna be my job to teach others how to do it right.
Sure, I have noticed I get women a lot more now, but that was never my intention. Though I love it. It's just what I do.
I swear to fucking christ, god fucking hates me.
Lifting never got me any girls, quite the opposite actually. Since I became /fit/ (DYEL by /fit/ standards) girls are intimidated by my size. Now I'm that big scary guy.
I don't even care anymore, I just lift so I don't have to think for at least a while.
If I lifted for girls, I would have stopped two years ago [spoiler] the last time a girl slept with me [/spoiler]
I lift so I will be fit for the removal of Migrants and Islam from Europe.
It's already happening in certain countries.
How long are you going to wait? How many women and children will you allow to be brutally gang raped before you strike back?
Absolutely, honestly. I had a really nice thing happen tonight though. Confidence gains.
>be me at Japanese Hibachi restaurant
>tfw can eat food I love and not break 400 cals, has 55g of protein
>get food to go
>get in car, receive text, have conversation for a bit
>qt parks beside me
>don't think much of it, w/e, she's cute but I have no chance (aka I'm a huge pussy)
>text conversation gets deep, end up staying for 20 or so minutes just parked
>qt hasn't moved, looks like she's also on her phone
>finally have a "fuck it" moment
>crank car up
>she waves bye to me
>roll my window down, motion for her to roll her window down, she complies
>I ask "so, if the red house has red bricks, and the blue house has blue bricks, what is the green house made of?"
>"Nope. Glass." I say
>She looks confused and I ask "Do you get it?"
>She says "not really, sorry!"
>"Green houses.. Greenhouse.. Plants.."
>"OOOOOOOOHHH" followed by a cute laugh that lasted a nice little while
>I laugh too, tell her "ayyy I'll be here all week!" and then drive off
>can still hear her giggling as I drive away
I don't care if this is autism: the post, I've been bad at talking to girls my whole life, I dropped 9.2 pounds in 2 weeks, and the food was free. I'm on top of the world tonight, brehs. A month ago I never would have even considered talking to her. Maybe could have gotten her number or something out of it if I stuck around but I'm glad I at least left on a high note. I really do feel like I'm gonna make it, you guys.
