My Personal Trainer

Remember the personal trainer who was helping me out last week? I saw him at the gym last night, too. Again, he wasn't outright hitting on me. But this time he walked me to the door and told me to call him if I'd be at the gym before Wednesday (when I said I would) and that if not, we'll do a leg workout on Wednesday night.

Um, wait, what?

He's really, seriously, going to train me.

But...I...what?

I'm thoroughly confused because I don't know what to do in this situation. Am I supposed to tell him up front that I'm not interested in anything but training with him? What if he had nothing else in mind? Should I play the boyfriend card and just drop a mention like, "oh, yeah, my boyfriend told me to try that machine, but I don't know how it works?" (I really can't, though, because I always mess fake stories up.) Should I just create an ambiguous friend/more than friend? Like, "I was going to come yesterday but I was out with a friend...or...well, yeah, friend." Or perhaps I should just play it cool and mention that I can't pay him to train me but I'd be more than happy to bake him cookies. Yeah, I think I'll do that one! Okay, problem solved until I see him again and chicken out.

Hmm... I dunno. Startin' to sound a little suspicious. Then again, I'm cynical and untrusting by nature, so, don't listen to me! :o)

And remember, best thing with fake stories is to keep it simple, should you decide to try the "boyfriend" route, which, even that may not discourage him. I know a lot of guys who would just see that as a challenge.

lol i would definetly see it as a challenge....cuz if you didnt say it right away than its probably not serious....you should just bake him stuff and dont mention it and when he makes a move tell him sorry im a lesbian...works like a charm (works on me that is :(

I was thinking about trying that one, but I thought that he might find the idea that I have a girlfriend too interesting. The thing, though, is that he's an interesting guy. He's working on a book with a friend that he told me about and it is REALLY cute! So, I don't wanna scare him away, but...

If he's Jewish, go for it!.

If not, let him down nice, but don't say anything unless he does.

Yeah, if you tell a guy you're a lesbian, the interest ratio usually goes up about 50%...

Yes. We were also discussing that if I make cookies it can go two ways: either, "oh, she's paying me like this..." or, "wow! She bakes too!"

So, uh...
