One thing I’ve observed – all of my triathlon and endurance running friends have spouses / BFs / GFs that also do something that requires serious training and discipline. I’ve tried dating people outside of this community, and, well, I’m still single. Too many times I was asked “Can’t you just skip your workout tonight?” (NO) and “Why is your nutrition so rigid?” (because I don’t want to bonk!).
“I am an active person.” Really means: Aside from my 40 hour job, and the 8 mandatory hours of sleep a night, 10 hours a week are devoted to me during the off-season and 20 during race season leaving us 4 hours. 2 of which are spent inhaling food and you not talking to me, so let’s make the best of the 2 hours we will spend together on average each day. If you are a licensed massage therapist or doctor this would make the most optimal use of our time together. Nutritionist is also acceptable, but I probably already know just as much as you.
When I find a man who understands this, I will have found my match. Fingers always crossed!
