Why do fitness dates work?
A common question that potential members have is whether fitness dates are better than an ordinary dating activity, such as going to the movies or meeting for coffee. We say, “Absolutely!”
Let’s face it, when you’re sitting across the table from each other having a cup of coffee, you had better know how to fill the time with a lot of conversation, otherwise you’ll both be bored. If you go to a movie, you’ll have no conversation at all!
For active singles like you, fitness dates are a great way to get to know someone because you’re engaging in activities you both love. It just naturally gives you something to talk about! And if there’s a lull in the conversation, there’s no reason to worry, since you’re both engaged in an activity. It sure beats staring across a table over coffee.
Fitness dates are just plain fun!
So let’s say you and another member, after getting to know each other by communicating on Fitness Singles, decide to meet. Rather than doing a typical, unimaginative first date activity, you decide instead to meet up at the gym and talk while using the elliptical machines. You feel energized and encouraged, and the discussion flows freely and easily.
You’ll never want to go back to a traditional way of meeting, because — after going a just one or two fitness dates — you’ll realize that they are so much more fun and exciting. Plus, you’ll learn more about your date’s level of commitment to staying fit and healthy than you could ever learn by chowing down a high calorie meal.
One of our members, Chris, wrote to tell us how it changed his outlook on how to go on dates:
I thought Fitness Singles would be a great way to meet other active singles who share my outlook on exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It’s definitely been exactly that, but what I didn’t expect is to have it change my perspective on dating!
I used to always plan on going to a bar for drinks or meeting out for dinner,
but now I realize that I can have so much more fun by biking or going for
a run with my date. It’s more interesting for both of us, and we get
to learn more about each other because we’re talking about what were
doing and why we like it.
