My girlfriend always complains about me working out and me having a strong interest in fitness. Anybody ever been in the same boat? It’s my hobby and while I spend time with her everyday for a couple of hours at the very least, but she still complains. I’m ready yo end things so I can workout in peace without someone feeling jealous. I’d rather be happy alone than being with someone at the expense of my passion.[/quote]
It doesn’t seem right that someone wants you to stop doing things that make you happy, and at the same time, increase your quality of life.
Sounds like you got things figured out, good luck with that.
From a instinctive standpoint, it sounds like she feels like she is going to lose you(for whatever reason) because of weight-lifting. Ironically enough, because of the poor way she dealt with her insecurities, she will do exactly that, lose you.
You’re surprisingly calm about it.
Well I’ve gave up my career while I was married, so I don’t want to give up something important again. I’m calm because I’ve given myself permission to be ok with having a hobby while being in a relationship. Like others have said, I probably just need to find someone who enjoys working out because my chick doesn’t. She’s weighs 230 and I’m 175 so that might have something to do with it as well. Anyhow, thanks for your advice.
