Going to the gym only for the sake of working out is out of fashion nowadays. Some people go to sports complexes to socialize, flirt and look for potential partners. As some surveys suggest, indeed many people do so. Why? Well, flirting in the gym may help to increase self-esteem, get rid of stress and, of course, establish new romantic connections .
Website Elliptical Reviews carried out a survey among more than 1,000 people and found out that many people’s gym habits include flirting, and pretty successful one. Here we present the most interesting findings from the survey.
Who flirts in the gym the most?
According to the findings, people who take proteins and play with their muscles in front of the mirror are more than two times more likely to flirt in the sports complex than those who don’t. At the same time, selfie-takers and those amateur sportsmen who take supplements are around two times more likely to hit on others in the gym.
What to wear in the gym to get hit on?
The survey says that 33% of men who were wearing hoodies in the gym got a lot of attention from women. 31% wore tank tops and happened to be the most attractive ones too. Therefore, if you want to get hit on by women, wear this kind of clothes to the gym.
If you are a woman, rely on tank tops and athletic shorts/yoga pants. 50% and 47% of female respondents respectively said they were hit on by men when they were wearing this sportswear.
