The majority of men start bodybuilding to achieve their ideal physique. Most of them already have a general idea of what they want to look like, and a few select ones are persistent enough and are willing to do whatever it takes to turn their goal into reality. Some even become entirely obsessed and start distancing themselves from family and friends, letting their romantic relationships fade away with the sole purpose of the trying to achieve the image they desperately strive to develop.
Even though there are some men who are so obsessed with getting an ideal physique that they totally become isolated from the outside world and forming and maintaining healthy relationships, there are just as many, if not more who strive to achieve shredded physiques just to become more successful at attracting women. We should note beforehand that this article is not meant to be inspirational. It’s only meant for those who have considered dating a bodybuilder and wants to know firsthand what they’re getting themselves into. So, without any further ado, here are the top 5 reasons you shouldn’t date bodybuilders.
1. The gym always comes firsthand
Well, let’s start with the most obvious reason. Dedicated bodybuilders regard the gym as some kind of a temple that they must frequently and regularly visit for a long time to appease the gods of iron. This might work out fine for a man who is single, however, when one’s in a relationship, it might prove extremely hard to find a girl who will be willing to be put in second place to the gym. And if you always prioritize going to the gym and not paying attention to her at all, pretty soon the only place you’ll pay attention to will be the gym.
Women have needs, and very often these needs can be entirely opposite of the needs that you have, like spending 4 hours in the gym every single day. We are talking about trips to shopping malls, having lunches at fancy restaurants with her alone, or with her friends who don’t give a damn about lifting, listening to their boring stories or having to attended social gatherings where you’ll be forced to drink alcohol, lest you be called a “party breaker”.
Dedicated bodybuilders find this terrible on many levels: they subconsciously start resenting their girlfriend for forcing him to skip his workouts, partake in dinners filled with all kinds of junk food and generally making him feel bored all the time he’s with her. Most of the time, this is not her fault, of course. However, if a guy wants to be in a loving relationship, he must learn how to make time for his girl. Otherwise, he’ll become jacked, but end up lonely and not having anyone to admire his hard-earned muscles.
2. Their whole day revolves around their meals
You read that right, bodybuilders have their whole days planned out according to what and when they’re going to eat, without counting time spent in the gym. So, if you’re a girl planning a trip with your bodybuilder boyfriend, prepare yourself to be bombarded with lots of questions about what and where you’re planning to eat.
This can be especially nerve-racking when you plan on doing things that don’t involve eating huge amounts of food but take quite a lot of time. Such as going to the movies, and while you’re enjoying the movie, you look over and see your boyfriend munching away on the enormous sandwich he smuggled inside. And just picture the embarrassment you’ll feel when people start looking with disgust at the pig you have brought along with you and yet hardly anyone will have the courage to tell him to stop.
It’s not just the fact that you’ll have to watch him stuff his face with all kinds of food at inappropriate places that will piss you off. It’s also the fact that you must let him do it unless you want him to become angry and irritable, which will completely ruin the date. He’ll either eat huge amounts of food every couple of hours, or he’ll go into a berserk-like rage and quite possibly make a scene. In these kinds of situations, it’s always a good idea to already have a meal prepared just in case he gets hungry in the middle of the date.
