So long story short. I met this girl around last October /November at a previous gym and we occasionally struck up a 2-3 min conversation. I usually kept it short because I take my workouts seriously. I have lost 115lbs, and even showed her my transformation picture.
I left that gym in January and about 4-6 weeks ago she showed up at my new gym. We did the occasional conversation and about 2 weeks ago I mentioned to her that we should grab coffee when she was free. She said yeah ok, sure.
I mentioned this to my training partner and a couple days later, he approached her. He told me he said "I asked her if she was gonna let you take her out, she said she doesn't go out with guys at the gym and I said don't be like that he's a good guy. We take our training serious and don't talk to people". I had nothing to do with this, dunno why he did but it's been done.
So since then, to me it seems her attitude and body language changed. She wasn't really into talking or even a couple times not making eye contact until this past Sunday. We had a good little conversation and had her laughing, just talked about school and her spring cleaning. Tuesday she was going to workout next to us and I moved the bench out of her way. We talked again for a couple mins and she pulled out her phone and showed off her dogs.. Just another rapport building conversation.
How do I bring up setting up a date, and what do I say if she brings up that she doesn't go out with guys from the gym? Did my friend help me, or hurt me from what he told her? She nor I, have mentioned anything about it. Leave it at that? I see this girl 5-6x a week at the gym. Thanks
