So this might be a long read but bare with me. I began lifting weights recently again after a hiatus. Before beginning I was experiencing the usual symptoms of low testosterone (depression, irritability, high body fat, low strength, anxiety, difficulty getting an erection). I decided to fix this naturally by eating right, lifting heavy and sleeping better. A few months in and things had turned completely around for me. Btw I have never done drugs or had a drinking problem.
I’ve gotten a lot leaner, stronger and overall more attractive. Girls occasionally comment on my physique by saying how attractive my arms look. All my previous symptoms have disappeared and i’m getting a lot more attention from women. I got my testosterone levels checked and my doctor was hesitant to even order a test because i’m so young (24) but I convinced him saying I’d like it as a baseline for later. He agreed and my levels came back around 810 ng/dl which is considered on the high normal.
Anyways, now time to get to the point. Before I began lifting again I would never think about approaching a girl at the gym, but nowadays I just simply don’t give a fuck. The other day some guy was working out with a girl and I wasn’t sure if it was her bf. She kept looking at me and even abandoned him for a while and began doing curls right next to me while gazing at me in the mirror. I was about to go approach her with the guy near her and my friend had to convince me to not do it because it could cause conflict. I agreed and decided not to do it.
At any rate, do you guys think think that this i a byproduct of higher testosterone? I sometimes feel narcissistic and superhuman. I treat women like absolute crap and for some reason they’re very receptive to it. For example I have no interest in cuddling or being in a committed relationship. I see women just as a tool to help satisfy my sexual needs and that’s it. Before I was looking for a long lasting relationship, now I just don’t give a fuck. No I have never been cheated on or had my heart broken. Anyone else experience this? on a side note, what do you guys think about approaching girls at the gym?
