Dating a bodybuilder is definitely an amazing experience and you are sure to make your friends jealous. It sure has got its pros, but it's not as easy as it seems.
Initially, you will feel like the luckiest person in the world to have won the affection of a strong, handsome hunk but as the relationship steadies, it won't be a bed of roses. He might appear to be too obsessed with his body and too serious about his diet and workout regimen. Good health will always be his priority. He will be caring, but sometimes seem to be overly protective. His good looks and well-built body will always be a plus, but when it comes to your exercising or eating habits, he might be pushy.
✔ They know the value of hard work; they live by it each and every day. They work hard towards maintaining their relationships and don't give up easily.
✔ They show dedication in all aspects of life. They are serious about their relationships.
✔ No guy in his right senses will dare to look at you (forget making a move) if this hunk is with you. With your muscular man around, you will feel like a queen. When with him, you will feel protected.
✔ You can shop all you want and the big guy will be more than happy to pick up any number of bags. He just needs a reason to flex his muscles.
✔ He is absolutely hot! Broad shoulders, toned abs, and bulging biceps, what's not to like?
✔ We all know that looks are not everything, and it is the person that matters. But it is always an amazing combination, when a good individual is equally good-looking. And your bodybuilder partner works hard for his drool-worthy body, like really hard.
✔ He will inspire you to get fitter. (All the people trying to impress him and his hundreds of fans will be another reason to make you conscious of your body.)
✔ Joining him at the gym for at least a couple of days each week, will give you a chance to be fitter and spend some time with him as well.
✔ Since he will be pumping in the gym, he will be cheerful and happy!
✔ His passion and commitment are a major turn-on.
✔ You will also get a lot of me-time, as your partner will frequent the gym. Both of you will feel happy and comfortable in the relationship, since your personal space won't be intruded.
✘ He is obsessed with his body and looks. That can be a turn-off. Especially if you are a girl, I mean taking time to get ready and fussing over looks is a girl's forte, but this guy will spend hours standing in front of the mirror.
✘ Nothing is perfect for them; even though their bodies are killer, they will always want more.
✘ Maintaining that mass and muscle means no junk food or alcohol, well that certainly has advantages, but come on you don't want to end with a salad every time you go out.
✘ So basically, all your dates may include lectures on eating right and working out. Once in a while is fine, but always? Boring we say!
✘ Handling their mood swings and eating patterns will be a tough job. Good luck on a low-carbs day!
✘ One thing these bodybuilders cannot compromise on, is their sleep. Hell hath no fury like a bodybuilder not getting his sleep.
✘ They just need their eight hours of sleep. So no late night parties, walks, or conversations! And that's going to suck!
✘ Your better half is always going to be the center of attention wherever you go. And yes, there are going to be his fans swooping on him and trying to bring you down. Of course you trust your partner, but all this drama may not be easy to handle.
✘ Their sport will be their topmost priority, so you may end up feeling neglected or have to compromise. Especially during competitions and events, it can be tough to handle him.
On a concluding note, all I can say is that good things never come easy. Dating a bodybuilder will be difficult, no doubt, but it will be absolutely worth it. After all, it is the person that matters more than anything else. If you love and trust each other, then nothing's a challenge.
