I'm Just...Nice to Strangers

I was at the gym today working out my arms when this random guy walked up to me and asked why I was only doing half curls and not full curls. He ended up training me for about ten/fifteen minutes until the guys he was supposed to train showed up.

He's not a trainer with my gym though, and when I asked him if he was, he said, "nah, they don't pay enough." So...he probably doesn't just train for free...so...Anyway, I was reminded of a quote Randy once said to me: "You are unnecessarily nice to potentially dangerous strangers." But still, he was helping me and not even hitting on me. Believe it or not.

I used to have a free trainer at my gym. He was frighteningly in love with me, so he trained me just so that he could help me. But when I say frighteningly, I mean if I came when he was leaving, he'd put his stuff back and train me for an hour anyway. It came to a point, some time when he was saying things like, "so when do I get to meet the king? Y'know, because you're a princess so you're father's a king!" and, "wow...you're so beautiful, I could sit here watching you in the mirror all day..." and, "let me know when you are able to come, and I'll give my salsa class at that time," when I was like, uh...I'll just use the other gym. I've been avoiding him ever since.

The point of that is that I know when a guy is freaky and tonight the guy wasn't freaky, scary, frightening, or even just plain coming onto me. He was just...cool.

Ah, well, see the sad thing about men is, we only have enough blood to think with one head at a time...

Try not to stop being nice. It makes it easier for cynical people like me to accept the world.
