Kim's Kounseling Korner by Kimberly Martin

Dear Kim,

I think there is this guy in my gym that is really cute, he has a good body but I just have no idea how to tell him I wanna talk to him. I think that every move I will make would be too much and he would think I am easy. Is there a simple way for me to let him approach me? He does look at me from time to time but does focus on his workouts a lot. Maybe he don't like me? help!

Life is too short, if you like him what you could do is try to train close to him or ask him how long he might be at that machine. Do it in a way that you don't sound like you are demanding. If you feel a bit daring or the guy is not as shy try asking him if you can work in with him. If he does like you he will probably talk to you and ask for your name and from there all you have to do is make small talk at gym every time you see him. Hope this helps!

About the Author...

My name is Kimberly Aline Martin, but I go by the name Kim. I was born in Decatur, GA on November 1st, 1969. I've lived in Georgia my whole life and can't imagine living anywhere else. Well, maybe Hawaii...

I've been married to my best friend for over 13 years and we have two wonderful children, both boys, ages 5 and 12.
We now reside north of Atlanta and I am currently a stay at home mom.

Three things I live by:
I truly believe 'what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger'....every obstacle in life that is overcome makes you a stronger individual.
I also believe that everyone makes mistakes and those mistakes shouldn't be regretted, but embraced because they make you the person you become.
Lastly, be consistent-about everything in your life-and surround yourself with people that do the same.
