So I was at the Y yesterday and took my spot at the edge of the treadmills. There was only one other guy there and he was constantly checking me out and he wasn't very discrete about it. I kept hoping he would leave but instead he ried to talk to me - and while I was still running! I tried to be aloof and just give one-word answers while focusing on my workout, but he wouldn't go away.
I would have quit my workout just to get away from him, but if I got off the treadmill he'd probably feel even freer to talk to me - or that I'd stopped running to talk to him. So finally I told him I'd give him my number when I was done working out. He finally seemed satisfied and went to shower, and I went to the guy at the front desk and told him what happened and he walked the creepy guy out the door. I feel kind of bad about it, but what can you do when a guy won't leave you alone at the gym?
