Is It Possible to Pick Up Chicks While Working Out?
We’re in week number two of our mailbag honoring the fact that 22 Jump Street is hitting the silver screens on June 13th. In doing so, we’ve decided to do a few college-specific Ask a Bro columns during this run and we have one week left. So come one, come all… and be creative. ASK ME ANYTHING. Submit your Ask a Bro questions below…
Q: Is it possible to pick up chicks while running without being a douche? This park is swamped with girls from the two nearby college campuses, and I’m a good looking dude. It feels so natural.
I’m also the only dude who runs shirtless at this park; does that make me a douchebag?
A: So you’re the shirtless guy running at the park who also preys on college chicks while they’re trying to work out and you’re afraid of coming off as a douchebag? Oh, I’m afraid that’s not possible, friend. In fact, if one thing in life is impossible it’s you ever looking like a douche in the situation described above. Lesser men, maybe, but not a man of your natural beauty. Hell, I’m surprised meteorologists don’t issue flash flood warnings when women see you disrobe.
Ok, fine. In general I do think it’s a touuuuuuuch douche-y to hit on chicks while working out and to run topless if it’s less than scorching hot outside. The combo of both sounds deadly. Something that can certainly result in you looking like a MASSIVE DOUCHE. Even worse than looking like a douche, you’re one bad pick-up attempt from becoming known around the park as “that creep.” You don’t want that. The creep tag is lethal. You can overcome some guy too afraid to hit on chicks calling you a douche, but if a girl coins you as a creep…GAME OVER.
Can you manage to avoid both of those distinctions? If you can, then do what feels natural (we all know what that is). I’ve never been the approach-chicks-in-the-gym kind of guy, but if you’re getting girls then who cares other people think?
