Caution: Far Objects May Appear Cuter Than They Are

Every time I go to the gym I try to scope out my eye candy that I will focus on throughout my workout. It keeps me working hard and dedicated haha. Today I hopped on the treadmill and immediately picked a hottie running on a treadmill near by. He was adorable! Tanned skin, nice toned body, about 6'2, looked so cute in his hat and he even kept glancing over at me.

After my workout I decided I didn't want to leave the gym without talking to him. I thought he could be my future husband and what if I missed the chance to meet him?! After chickening out about 5 times my "friend" told me she wouldn't take me home until I went and talked to him. I was stuck. So I walked over to him and this is what happened....

Me: Hi! I feel like I know you from somewhere and it's going to drive me crazy if I don't figure it out. (I had never seen him before in my life)

Him: Hmmm I don't know.

Me: Do you recognize this face? (As I'm dripping with sweat and all red from a really hard workout)

Him: Maybe, but I'm not sure. (He smiles and his teeth are SO jacked up they are throwing out gang signs). I work at Planet Hollywood.

Me: Oh what do you do there? Are you a bouncer?

Him: Nope. I'm a bell hop.

Me: Have a good workout! (As I run away and hide).

Maybe I had sweat in my eyes when I picked him as my eye candy today, but he was definitely a lot better looking from a lot further away. Moral of the story? I'm never talking to any guy at the gym EVER again!


  1. Hahahaha...this made me lol! Better luck next time!

    Love, Mere

  2. there have been so many times where i have been at the gym, checking out the guy running on the treadmill in front of me, and then he turns around and i see his face and i'm like "DAMNNNNN!!! NO WONDER YOU'VE BEEN WORKING OUT SO HARD!"

    gross. but totally funny.

  3. Reminds me of that line from Clueless talking about how people look good from a distance but up close are a big mess :)
