Yeah well the fool in me is of course immediately like "maybe I have a shot with her!", the same as 99.99% of guys she talks to probably think. While the more rational explanation based on previous experiences is that I would be punching way above my weight class with this one, and she is genuinely just curious about how to properly perform the exercise. She's like 8/10, taller than me(doesn't bother me but I know it bothers most chicks), with a fantastic body. Only thing I might have going for me is that I'm clearly one of the few people in the gym with a similar dedication to fitness as her. We're almost always there around the same time, she does extensive cardio and then like an hour+ of lifting, hitting decent weight for a chick with very good form.
Also didn't help that I was like half out of breath when she approached lol
For now I'll just take this as permission to acknowledge and say hi to her from here on forward without it being creepy. Reason I've always been off put by the idea of approaching women in the gym is because I know lots of people, myself included, are all business when it comes to their workouts, just want to get in and get it done without being interrupted. I did go on a date with a chick who worked the desk at my previous gym, but this was only after she made it fairly obvious she had interest in me
