Well, going to the gym never helped me much (you can't workout your face). However, overall I'm a much happier, healthier, STRONGER person because of it. Those traits can attract women, which is good because a semi-hot bod like mine can only take you so far.
I'll take a sweet nerd over a gym rat any day. My husband is super skinny but he makes me laugh and tells me I'm beautiful every single day. If you go to the gym do it for you not for ladies :) most of them are looking for an internal connection not a six pack
Lol every guy starts going to the gym because he thinks it will help get women then at some point you realize your working out to be bigger than other dudes and because you love it, women no longer a factor. It does build confidence which helps I think, but over all its not a solution
