I recently got out of a very emotionally abusive relationship so I'm not in a huge rush to get into another one but during that relationship my life changed quite a bit. I went from being a student athlete to being a competitive athlete vying for a spot on my country's National and Olympic teams (Winter). Needless to say my training takes up almost all of my time outside of work and sleep but in the same breath these are the greatest years of my life and I do want to find a real long term relationship that leads to something more significant.
So I suppose my question is, is where if at all possible is a good place for someone as busy as I am to find someone interested in a relationship, but also okay with my hectic schedule? So many of the regular spots are out of the question because I don't do the bar scene and I'm out of school so I'm at a loss and the idea of dating a teammate terrifies me because my abusive ex was on a cross-training team and it's left me quite jaded to that prospect (though admitedly that's probably unfair, but it's the reality at present).
Any siggestions would be absolutely wonderful and greatly appreciated! :) In the meantime I'll work at being the best version of myself I can be and work to fulfill my own goals academically and athletically.

Why not date someone from the same sport you're into?
I'm into Olympic lifting and my coach married his wife, who was also a Olympic lifter (they both were). It worked out well, and they share the same interests with sports.
I'd say find someone in your gym. Maybe there is someone just like you, a guy who's set his time on training. And, he's having issues finding someone too.0
