    Nothing beyond 'hey are you done with this'. I'm not at the gym to make friends, I don't like people very much anyway.

    One time I asked a cute girl for her name and she said her name was "I have a boyfriend." Now I don't talk at all.

    All the time . I’ll even play little games.

    >tell people I I like their shoes/shirt
    >ask “oh what’s that excercise work out?”

    This morning some lady was eyeballing me. So I caught her eyes in the mirror and smiled. She ignored me. So I flagged her down and asked if she was still using a certain machine. Then I asked if she was a basketball player because of her height.after a minute of chatting i said good bye.

    The gym is the ONLY place I chat up ppl

    A boomer asked me for a spot during bench one time, he immediately went on some long rant about how getting married is the worst thing you can do and marriage destroys gains and he used to bench 315lb back in the day.

    He did this for 15min before I eventually stopped saying “that’s crazy” and “damn” and just said I had to go change.

    If you’re reading this boomer, go to therapy, we don’t want to hear your marriage problems while we’re in the gym.

      Boomers are all brain damaged from childhood lead exposure. They aren’t right in the head. Gen X are the only people with rants worth listening to.

    I had a guy in his 50s come up to me at like 8pm one night early on when I started lifting. Just finished squats and he started randomly asking a bunch of questions like how much weight was that, how long have I been lifting and that kinda thing all the while giving compliments for each answer like how strong I am already.
    I'm pretty sure him and his friends were trying to groom me but I gave non-committal answers, put my headphones back on and finished the night without being raped so that was lucky.

    People from college talk to me. Strangers sometimes compliment my lifts and make small talk with me even though I havent achieved 1/2/3/4 yet (but I am close to it). I guess it's because I am stronger than I look and because I lift at a commercial gym

    Yes, I joke around with guys in the gym just because and girls....I talked to a few but always get this super cold shoulder/defensive vibe from them even though I'm one of the more attractive people in the gym. Humble brag sure but I notice it a lot with them looking at me.

    I stopped talking to girls when I full on spaghetti'd all over her, me and had it dragging past me as I walked away after talking to my gym crush and her telling me she was married.

    I don't go to a gym regularly, only very occasionally go as a guest with a friend. Only once in the last 6 months, and talked to 3 people while I was there. It's not that weird, be social just don't say hi in the middle of someone's set

    I don't even talk. I gesture at the bench or machine and they gesture back. I do talk to a trainer when I work with him and he always wants to have small talk. I'm in there for gains, not to discuss normie shit.

    Only when they ask if I’m using a machine I’m near. I never ever ask if they’re done with a machine, if in use I just move on to something else.

    One time my gym crush asked if I was using some equipment, I said nah, then I was like “what’s your name btw? I see you almost every day lol” and she told me her name and that’s been it.

      Did you at least remember to tell her your name in return?

        I did, this was weeks ago. Whenever we make eye contact we kinda just to a head nod. Almost like she’s a bro. I should’ve kept her talking that day. Oh well

          You can always reapproach next time you're in proximity or are trying to use her machine

          Here's a tip: if she didn't ask for your name back, she probably doesn't care. I do this with every chick. I ask her name and if she doesn't ask back, I say ok bye and never approach her again unless she initiates. Think about this, if she doesn't even put in the effort to be polite and ask your name back, what makes you think she likes you.

          Yes this is interesting. Girls will never ever initiate, in the gym you're likely going to have to build rapport over several conversations before asking her out.
          The man is going to have to drag the first few approaches out himself before the woman will ever reciprocate in this case. It's up to you to gauge the level of interest from her, there is definitely a possibility that she is interested but completely unwilling to start the conversation.

    When I was in the Suburbs yes, but, when I am working out in the small cities/rural gyms no people are very stand offish and many have a routine. Not a lot of zoomers like there was in the suburbs

    Okay I'm going to be honest. Some of my old friends used to go to the same gym so I have talked inside there. But if we are talking strictly new encounters, no I have not talked to anyone in 10 years of lifting.

    >Was on the double sided cable rack doing bicep curls.

    >Wants to work in with me on the bicep curls fair enough
    >I get up to do my set after him, as I step up he says "make sure you get the long and the short head now".
    >Finish my set, he's up in my face chewing gum I can smell his breath
    >"How long have you been down here" I'd seen him there before but irregularly, "I'm in on a day pass but thinking of getting membership" I ask him where he goes instead, tells me about how he's an honorary member of the boomer gym in my city
    >I do my next set and finish, as I move away he's in my face again, "how often do you check your form" don't really know why he's asking me this about bicep curls, decipher after he says it a second time "How often do you charge your phone", complains for a few minutes about having a smartphone for the first time and only getting a days charge out of it.
    Haven't seen him since
