I have a 'crush' at the gym. We are there at the same time each morning, every day. I live in a very small Canadian city so it normal for me to know someone who knows him. At this point I have not seen him talk to ANYONE. I know... I would love to try and open up the communication somehow but I feel like making any kind of move at the gym is very cheesy! Helllp!
Dear Gym Gal, I agree that making a move at the gym is cheesy, though it's infinitely cheesier for a man to do it than a woman. Rather than strike up a conversation, I would try to get on the elliptical next to him or ask him how to use a piece of equipment. Then the next time you have a reason to say hi. Eventually, perhaps he will strike up a conversation with you which is the better position to be in than to pursue him. Also get yourself some really hot workout gear - a little Lululemon Athletica can't hurt - and make sure you look your best. Not full makeup (guys hate that at the gym), but a little sheer lip gloss to make those lips moist and sexy and some light mascara and even a tiniest bit of natural blush to give your cheeks a glow. He won't even notice it as makeup, but he will notice you look great. Or, you can wait. If you live in that small a town it seems that eventually you will run into him.
