Any lady lifters out there dating someone who doesn't lift? I love my boyfriend dearly. I also look like I could take him down in a fight. He's a distance runner so he's pretty lean.

Whereas I'm pretty muscular. Again, I love him dearly and am very much attracted to him. It just makes me feel a bit odd that I look more built than him. Is that ridiculously shallow?! 😩


Same. Screw society norms. You keep lifting and being strong. Your relationship and attraction to each other is between you two only. Not the world.

I’m married to someone who’s not much into fitness, let alone lifting (while I am). Been together for 15 years. It’s more about what other things you value in him. He loves my muscles / has always been very supportive of me training, which I appreciate given that my workouts require a ton of planning, maneuvering and perseverance (we got two toddlers and my consulting job is intense). I admire a ton of qualities in him that definitely overshadow his lack of enthusiasm for exercising.

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?
