They also tend to be fitter and live a more active lifestyle. I like the fit ones who work out and exercise as they are more inclined to go outside and do physical things instead of sitting on their asses. I found out a long time ago, if they work out every day, well they aren't binge watching some stupid series eating bon bons every night. They are at the gym putting in work. I don't bed all the ones I date, and I've got a large number of female friends, many of whom still call to catch up, asking for advice on some buster they are dating, etc. If he's playing games, just trying to get laid, etc. How is it misogynistic to just be real and do your thing? I'd rather do that and be straight up compared to playing games, dealing with drama, and wasting my time, effort and $. The last thing I'm doing in this life is crying over some relationship or woman, begging, etc. Women don't like it either. They are looking for a confident man, not mama's boy. And if they are attractive, well fatboy doesn't work. You can't expect to land an attractive fit female if you yourself are not fit and watching what you do.

Yawn, that's what you're down to now? Have you exhausted your Wolfgang Puck and Freudian bs yet Einstein? Hey I'm going to jump on a car forum and judge and label folks who I don't even know! You don't know S about me, virtually zero but you're quick on the draw with your pronouncements.

You have herd mentality I guess. You should either take a long look in the mirror, do some self reflection, and realize that not all people are the same, nor should they be. I could sit here and discuss all these places you like so much as I had access to all of them during my previous career in music. I've been in more 4 and 5 star places than I can count. None of which were really that big of a deal. Hype, image, and thankfully the promoters always paid. The bottles of Cris and Dom Cham were good though. Good luck out there guy. Remember place your phone "down" in front of you while you discuss the "finer" things in life.

First of all, as a professional athlete it's much more important to him...so much more important that you even bringing him up is a sign of obsessive behavior. Second of all, if you think they live like that year round, you're crazy.

I "train" about 10 hours a week as a competitive (as in actual organized competitions) amateur athlete in the top 5% of my targeted event, but I don't let it run my life because in the end it's a hobby that I do primarily for fun. If once and a while I'm doing stuff and time is tight, you're damn right I'll swing by and pick up something quick...because otherwise I'd have to structure everything around a hobby, which is obsessive behavior. Same goes for going out socially, because it's very easy to do things in moderation when you aren't so wrapped around the axle that you see moderation as failure. It's relatively easy to figure out if you're eating too much/too little, or if you're eating enough protein but when you start getting into "tracking your macros" or obsessing over the scale you're being obsessive.

So no, it's not "acceptable for athletes," because most athletes have a healthy balance in their lives. There is an athletetic performance benefit from going from moderation to perfection but it's small and comes at a big pricetag. Reality is that unless you're literally born with it, that extra effort isn't going to make a real difference.

People go out on dates in public environments because it relieves social pressure and convenience, but you don't see that because you're a little nutty about your hobby.

Why does Pre read like one of those PUA threads on the body builder forum?

Also, Pre, why do you claim that you have no time to go out to eat when you so obviously do? If you saved up your forum replies, they’re good for at least a Saturday night out. “I don’t have time for that, I’m too busy.” Ok, yeah, sure.

My late uncle had a degree in coaching and physical education. He once explained to me what an "athlete" was. His definition was that, indeed, athletes are born, not made. It was a gift that gave you a huge head start. My brother-in-law is one -- he once spent 5 months training for a marathon and ran a 2:38. I could have trained my whole life and never ran that.

Watched an episode of "American Gladiator" with that same uncle years ago, a show where buff males and females competed against a crew of highly-trained, really big, strong people. The Crew nearly always won...but in one episode, a University of Oregon wide receiver entered. Not the biggest guy, but he was clearly stronger than any of them and ran circles around them. My uncle said "now there's an athlete."

Curious by the way, which sport do you compete in?

Nah, wrong again man. These pot shots from the peanut gallery are "obsessive" Who said I don't pick something up once in a while? The extrapolation is funny. For decades people, families, would cook at home in the kitchen. Dining out would be after church on Sunday or a birthday or something. So someone who insistent on meal prep, preferring to cook their own meals, is "nutty"? Whose body are you referring to? Again, I'll ask you like I asked the village idiot, do you pay my bills or write me a check? I'll answer it for you, nope. Last time I checked, I earn my $, pay my bills, not you or anyone else. What is crazy is folks so programmed that someone opting out of something they do, gets them up in arms. Wow

Who said I have no time for it? I said my preference is to not waste the time on that. There is a difference. Is it dinner time right now or the middle of the day? There are some of us who'd rather break out that nice piece of fish, chicken, or steak, and throw it on our grill.

I don't have any relationship issues. Never seen a divorce judge or attorney or had to make "payments". In fact my life outside of an injury, something breaking around the house, is free of drama because I give it no place. If I'm dating someone who is causing drama, they get dropped. If they cost too much to be around, dropped. I do quite well in the SMV actually and spend very little doing it. All I'm reading is strangers inventing problems I don't have.

Thank you, sincerely. Judge and jury man. People don't like "different', it scares them, and they attack. Just how it is. What's funny is no one asked them to do the same. They are infuriated at just reading someone doing different, even just suggesting it. Just the thought of it brings a character attack. I'll never let strangers nor society dictate how I live my life.

Don't go into the guns thread then, word fort about home protection. I respect the fact that he has the means and resources to outfit his house, but me thinks he's overreacting and cosplaying as SF

No one asked but my take is that he seemed to be giving wildnuts crap for eating out, coming off kind of pretentious
