I've always been super cautious about flirting in the gym. I just don't want any drama to be honest.
Anyways, I've been getting hard IOI eye contact from an 8. No smiling just drilling me with HARD eye contact, almost like if I had done something wrong and she was pist off at me. After some time, she blew me up with proximity alert, to the point where I just said fuj it, and started light convo about her doing lunges like everyday. I got her to smile and laugh a bit, and then she was on her way. I didn't try to keep her around since we were both doing our own routines.
The next day I saw her, said hi, smiled, and just went about my business. I noticed her playing with her hair in the mirror as if trying to fix it up, but I stayed in beast mode and focused on my routine. Before I left, I got on the stairmaster next to her and she was like IPOD OFF READY TO TALK as she saw me approach. I talked for like 5 minutes about gym related stuff and then had to split for work. I thought it was a slick move to not really open a convo right when i got there, but to wait instead to I was leaving.
I've seen her several times since and have made small jokes like "Hey it's your turn" and point to 315lbs deadlift bar. She always replies back with cute little phrases like "sure just let me warm up first". I know she's somewhat of a "social butterfly" at the gym, but I want to take her out. I dunno if I should try to find out if she has a boyfriend, or maybe I should try to get her to workout with me sometime, or if I should just flat out say hey I'm going to the beach tomorrow, you have plans?
What would you guys do?
