This is super embarassing to ask but its something that bothers me a lot and im super afraid it would be a deal breaker in a future relationship. I really love to run and I run 6 days a week but in the summer time mostly, I sweat a lot and when I come back from runs I smell REALLY bad! like one of my friends, my mom and my stepdad have comented on it when I come back from running and they have been around. I take a shower right away after ward and I've even used lots of body spray and deodorant in the mornings, before a run, and after a shower, but it still happens!!
-It mostly only happens in the summer and super hot weather
-It may be because I have type 1 diabetes and I've read that this condition causes your sweat to smell worse than other people's sweat
Guys, would this bother you if you were in a relationship with a girl who smells bad after runnning/working out?
- It would seriously bother me if she smelled bad after running everyday!Vote A
- It wouldn't bother me if she smelled bad only after runningVote B
- I wouldn't really careVote C
- It would be a deal breaker...Vote D

I love running when I can to work out. It is summer time here in Texas so the temps get pretty high up there. Like 90 F and humid for an average.
Naturally, I sweat a lot afterward and therefore smell, and I was in cross country so I've seen my fair share sweaty guys/girls too. The smell doesn't really get to me anymore. If it was just after running, I wouldn't mind-- not like it could be much worse than the guy's locker room back in high school. In fact, it'd be kind of odd if you worked out hard, ran a bunch of miles, and came back smelling completely normal. It'd be like you didn't run hard enough xD
If this was a constant thing, like smelling at all times even when not working out, that'd probably be a turn off. Keep running though. Girls working out can be very attractive!1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
