Re: Girl at the gym I can't figure out how to open
I'd say to poke fun at the awkwardness and tension between you two. Here's what I would say:
"Alright, we gotta stop trying to scare each other by staring each other down. How about we cut all this awkward crap and get to know each other, startiiiiiiiiiiing right now!"
"There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time." - Malcolm X
