In the modern world, it is hard for a man not to be insecure. You walk with your wife into the mall and she hugs like five men along the way. Some she will explain who they are.
“Richard is my sister’s ex…still good friends. He was actually a nice guy.”
“Nick was my classmate, though he did marketing and I did accounting…”
And so on and so forth.
And then there are the mysterious ones hugged and no explanations offered. What you often notice is a wide smile, something conspiratorial, and they keep a safe distance and you can see them whispering to each other.
You want to complain but you have to be mature about these things. Because as soon as you raise your voice, she will gaslight into doubting your sanity.
Enter the gym instructor. He looks a decidedly dangerous guy, in a playful, if sexual way.
Last Thursday, you went to the gym to pick up house keys from your wife. You arrived sooner than they expected and didn’t appreciate the familiarity you witnessed. He was holding her legs in some exercise. Not in an indecent way but suggestive all the same. You shot a disapproving look and they both knew what they were doing was wrong.
Later that day, you tried some sarcasm?
“How come there are no female trainers in most gyms?”
She kept quiet.
“Or why do you women like male instructors,” you decide to be more direct.
“Can you just grow up!” she starts her gaslighting.
“I mean, he was a bit too familiar, so I should not ask?”
“Why do you act as if you have never been to the gym?”
You have been to the gym and instructors are creepy opportunists -- always flirting with and flattering women. Since women swim in adulation and adoration, gym instructors aim to lift a woman’s spirits and self-esteem.
And they have this access to women at a time they are most vulnerable. And as husbands and boyfriends, we always forget to compliment them as frequently.
For instance, you don’t remember the last time you told Carol she looks good. Because she is so beautiful, it is easy to take it for granted. It is easy to assume that Carol is intelligent enough to be above petty stuff like compliments but you recently noticed that like any other woman, she likes to be adored.
This gym guy must be doing a good job. You remember when she joined the gym, she was full of praise of the instructor.
“He is very professional and has a very good regime,” she explained. Maybe it was a cover. Maybe you are overreacting. But men with the kind of body the instructor has can be recklessly sexy in women eyes. You are not saying women are weak but lately they do succumb to temptations far too often. And gym chaps are big culprits.
Now, you have a business idea: a gym run by female trainers, strictly for women. For husbands who are not comfortable with male instructors. Especially attractive ones with the biceps that women love so much.
