With that in mind, I tried to encourage some responses from men who do not do Crossfit and their thoughts on women who Crossfit, and received minimal replies..
My only conclusion is they must have been too intimidated..
There’s no telling if the single men and women you meet in the office or on a night out will love activity like you do and, while you might spot someone interesting at the gym, common courtesy says that it’s best not to interrupt their workout with an offer of a date.
This frustration is why so many American singles are heading online to find a match.
“How many of the speed dating guys emailed you so far? If you remember I briefly mentioned on the blog that I went speed dating a couple of weeks ago. Out of the group of 12 diverse single men, I was mutually matched up with two (they picked me and I picked them), and six other men who I did not choose provided their emails to me in case I changed my mind and decided to contact them first.
Half of the time I was there, I was bummed about missing out on Deadlift Day, and as much as I tried not to bring up Crossfit in the six-minute time limit I had with each guy, it subconsciously came spewing out of my mouth just about every time; I silently scoffed at the majority that never heard of Crossfit, and wrinkled my nose at the ones that heard of it but had no desire to do it. “None, Mom.” She replied, “They must have gone home and Googled “Crossfit” and decided you were too intimidating for them.” Let me preface the rest of this by saying I am completely comfortable being single.

I have no children and my only obligation is to my puppy dog, so this is prime time to focus 100% on ME. But then it got me to thinking: is this a bad thing?That I will never be able to go to a “globo” gym without judging everyone?Is it strange if you ask what I do for fun, and I say, “I lift heavy”? I tried to solicit some input from both Crossfitting and non-Crossfitting men, and of the ones that were kind enough to reply, the consensus is pretty much: “Crossfit chicks are awesome,” as quoted by one of the eligible bachelors at my box.As a leading dating site for dynamic, driven men and women, we are home to many singles who know what it takes to seek the best in life. , it is nice to be able to date someone who will understand when you’re off to the gym (again), or who will come for a run with you on a cold morning.Whether it's finding professional success or enjoying keeping fit and active, the Americans who use our site are happy to put the work in – in life, and in love. Perhaps this is because, as Elite Singles psychologist Salama Marine says, ‘’a mutual hobby..strengthen the bonds of a couple, becoming a privileged moment of sharing between two individual partners.’’ Indeed, if you’re heavily into fitness, singles who share your enthusiasm aren’t always easy to find.
