Call me a bad person but I think this may be a deal-breaker already.
Being active and exercising are something I highly value about myself.
It's pathetic to me that someone who is so well-educated and driven is in the same boat with most Americans who are apathetic about being physically fit and healthy.
Now, I wasn't there to hear your tone of voice, etc....maybe it didn't come off as judgemental as it sounds posted here. Look how hot those women on Dancing with the Stars are.
However, since this really, really seems to bother you already, I wonder how able you will be to really judge her other good qualities if you are so focused on her not exercising. They are professional dancers, and they are very fit and hot.
I’ll post a comment for each group, and then please reply to that with your thoughts.
Please send myself and / or @moseleymoles your tracklistings if you haven’t already, and if you are yet to send your discs get your skates on!
Does anyone have experience in trying to encourage their non-athletic partner to exercise?
I was thinking about trying to see if she'd be willing go on a walk with me and my dog.
The desire to be physically fit is an organic process that must originate from one's own motivation.
If medical school has taught me anything, it's that it's impossible to change someone if they don't recognize the problem and are willing to address it.
I would be inclined to try to teach her the basics of exercise, but it seems pointless if she's miserable the entire time. How would you feel if it turned out that she thought you were spending way too much time exercising, and was hoping to convince you to focus on other things once you start dating?
