I have a co-worker that is a young guy who really hasn't dated any women at all. He's quite religious, so chasing women is not on his top priority list as it is for most 23 year old young men. But I showed him this girl deadlifting 225+ at a body-weight of 115. She was really lean and had an excellent body. He made the comment that she looked good, but it wasn't his type of woman. He said he likes his women to be "soft" and not stronger than him. I asked him what the **** "soft" meant, because to me it means fat. Lol, and stronger than him? He's like 120 soaking wet.
Poor kid just doesn't know. I've offered to help him train when he decides he wants to be more than he is now. He's made several attempts on his own to go to the gym using the free trials. So when he gets his membership, I'll head over there with him and teach the little guy some things.
