I have not been dating for the past several months due to a very bad break up. A girl I know through a friend of mine expressed interest it going to the gym with me, as well as making music. I texted her a few days later and sure enough it was not just talk. Today she went with me to the gym, and after we played a few songs together and she left to hang out with some friends, asking when I could work out with her again.
I took advantage of the gym situation, touching her several times to "correct her form". It was all in a more professional context, as I didn't want to overstep my boundaries on our first outing alone together. She was clearly okay with me touching her and was very comfortable when I did touch her.
She recently got out of a 6 or 7 year relationship, and I don't think she has dated anyone else since they broke up. She also has many male friends who are strictly friends, and I don't want to be one of them.
I am thinking about upping the ante next time were at the gym, and be more flirtatious. Also next time we work out it's going to be lower body, and I was thinking about being flirtatious and joke when we squat, as when you spot someone who is squatting your basically air spooning them. However its also unsafe for me to make her laugh while shes resistance training, its just a bit dangerous (physically).
So do you guys have any advice? I don't want to be stuck in the freind zone. I have a good pysique (tall, muscular, and lean) and I think she is attracted to me physically, and she appears to be comfortable with being alone with me. I just need to get her to know that I'm not interested in just being friends, but in a subtle way - maybe in a blatant way, idk. What do you guys think?
Right now I don't know if she is working out with me as a way to get closer to me (I'm a gym rat, and it shows), or if she just wants some free personal training.
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
