Re: Dating is miserable

Why would anyone think I'm upset?

What do people think about people who do crossfit? Awesome exercise or obnoxious and douchey?

    What are you talking about? I've said like nine times that this is almost directly from a Bill Burr special. It's not like it's even 100% my idea/thoughts. I just happen to agree with parts of it.

    The worst I've said is that if you're a guy who does yoga a lot, I have no idea how a girl could be attracted to you. But hey, maybe that's why I'm single! No biggie.

    Crossfit is done by annoying people with bad form. More reps of bad form>being safe and doing the exercise correctly

    People who do yoga are equally as annoying as people who do crossfit. Actually, it's just the douchebags (boys and girls) that talk about either like, if you're not doing it, you're not really working out.

    The exact same benefits you can get from yoga, you can get from crossfit. Quite frankly, any workout and diet regime would offer similar results.

    Doesn't that go against what you said about a guy doing a lot of yoga? How could a woman be attracted to a yoga guy?
    The results are different and I think the people are very different, looks and personality wise. Way way more people that crossfit talk about it than people that do yoga in my encounters. Crossfit people always look more muscular and douchey in my opinion.

    I feel like people who take up yoga aren't far behind and closing quickly.

    There are two different things at play here. First is my perceived notion that women wouldn't find men who do yoga a lot (like more than them) attractive. That was the initial riff which maybe completely off from reality. However, I kind of don't care what people say on here, I think girls would think it was weird. I don't think guys have much interest in dating a girl that can bench more than they can either, so it's just a gender role thing, not a dislike if yoga thing.

    In terms of yogas effectiveness, I'm not really denying that at all. Personally, I know I get better workouts doing other things but that's not to say I wouldn't derive any benefit from yoga. I find yogis about as annoying as possible. For example, this statement annoys me a little...

    "Eating better/portion control came after i started the yoga. Gets your mind and body right. Big supporter and believer in Yoga."

    I mean, I guess if yoga works for you as a workout better than anything else, go for it. But, it's not like you don't end up at the same place from just about any other workout (crossfit, circuit training, kickboxking, etc...).

    For me, and I'm just speaking for me here, hearing "yoga totally got my mind centered and spiritually balanced" is as vmoit inducing as "crushed my CF workout today, which is the only way to workout, BALLS TO THE WALL!!!!"

    If thats the case then the trainers arent doing their job...if Form is off at the "box" I work out at then you dont add weight until the form is down.

    Was going to say that I don't really care what you do for a workout. If it works for you and keeps you motivated to get healthier, great. I don't want to hear about it, though.

    This applies to any form of workout, too. There are just people who feel the need to share every fucking workout they do with the world. So I'd say it's not the workout, it's the person.

    Exactly. It's stereotypical to say anyone who does crossfit is annoying just because there are people whom are annoyingly vocal about it.

    That'd be like saying every weight lifter is an annoying meat head. This can can be applied to anything, people!

    Re: Dating is miserable

    A guy I went to high school with got married and had a kid and had the whole family thing going on. About 4-5 months ago, his wife died of breast cancer, leaving him and his 7 year old son behind. I just saw on FB he's engaged to another woman already. I feel that's insane. Is it or is it not?

    I have a lot of friends that crossfit and they post videos of their workout. Fucking videos. A lot of my friends run and rarely talk about it. Crossfit people that I know post so much more than any other type of people that workout that I know.

    It's insane but he's trying to overcompensate for the kid and himself. He's hurt and scared.

    Exactly. Of course it's not everyone, but generally, it's correct.

    Phenomenal. GF and I are past eight months, in love and are so compatible together. After a life time of complaining, I finally can't complain.

    That's such a robotic way of looking at life. He should be with her 100% of the time for her final days and she should only want that from him.

    At the same time, I can't be mad at the guy. Stranger things have happened, but I think he's trying to compensate for the loss, has a 7-year-old son to take care of alone and is scared. This has to be someone he has known already and has been provided a tremendous support system for him.

    Either that or he's a stone cold douche.

    Odds are it's not the bolded. What I can glean from it is she's someone who goes back a ways, so she's at least not someone from off the street. I also imagine she was very supportive of him and his son throughout the process and the next step was for them to get together.

    My mom's cousin lost his wife to cancer a couple of years ago and shortly afterwards was dating (and eventually married) the woman who was the therapist (or involved in some supporting capacity that wasn't medical in nature) during the treatment.

    Maybe it's a thing that happens quite often.

    Re: Dating is miserable

    Things are good with the girlfriend. We fit well together and it works very well in that regard. She's a very understanding woman and just wants to be together. We are looking into apartments. I was an idiotic 22-24 year old and have very bad credit as a result. That is making it more difficult to find a p;ace. It sucks balls and makes me feel shitty, but she is great about the whole thing.

    Re: Dating is miserable

    I had a friend whose wife dies of cancer after battling it for close to 4 years. They had three kids.

    He was dating someone new within a few months and she moved in about six months after she had passed away. People were outraged.

    When I asked him about it, he said he had been dealing with his wife's death long before she actually passed, that they talked about what would happen after she died many times and she was fine with him moving on. He wanted his kids to have a "mom" presence and he honestly needed the help without constantly relying on other family members who would not be there necessarily long-term. He felt everyone wins, he had a new partner, his kids had someone to help fill the void and the girl had a family.
