One of my readers recently remarked that a doctor in his family pointed out to him that women nowadays only do sports to lose weight, not to exercise. What is worse, it is common for women to aim for a “summer body” or “beach body”, while their “winter type” or “winter body” comes with a lot more fat. This struck me as a very plausible observation. There are nowadays even marketing campaigns built around the concept of the “beach body”, and women are being told that they can eat all the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream they want as long as they shed their extra pounds in spring.
What is not immediately obvious is that such female behavior points not just to sloth but also to a view on dating you may find highly unpalatable. First, I can anecdotally confirm that a significant number of women only do sport in summer. I think a lot of women don’t move much at all, and the very few that exercise only do so one half of the year. At my most recent gym, for instance, I ran into essentially the same bunch of guys over and over. Once those guys had made the decision to get into shape, they stuck to it. On the other hand, I noticed a temporary increase in female attendance that seemed to coincide with a rising temperature. If you’re located in a place like Florida, that observation may not hold, but if you live in a part of the world with pronounced seasons, it likely does.
Let’s say a single woman only wants to be slim in summer. This clearly indicates that she is aware that her looks are important for securing a mate, even just a one-night stand. Yet, if she can get away with hiding her fat rolls, she’d much rather walk around in an oversized sweater. On the other hand, a woman who is in a relationship and acts this way is even worse. She probably got her boyfriend during summer, and in winter she fattened up. She didn’t care about looking good for Mr. Beta Bucks, but come summer, she wants to make another attempt at getting the attention of Jamal and Tyrone. Those women don’t respect themselves, and they respect their boyfriend even less.
I hinted already at the importance of consistency. If you want to stay in shape, you can’t just lift a 5-kilo kettlebell off the floor ten times and expect to look like a fitness model afterwards. Sadly, that seems to be what some women think. In fact, I have rarely seen women who came to the gym to work towards their “beach body” and sticking to it. Instead, they showed up a few times, and then they just disappeared. Of course, that kind of observation would be more reliable if it came from someone working at a gym, but even if you work out a few times a week at the same time you will learn who the regulars are, due to the fact that a lot of people stick to a routine. Thus, if you stop running into some people, it is not implausible to assume that they moved away or stopped exercising. Once their routine disintegrates, they strop working out. Indeed, if you can’t make it a routine to work out, you are likely to not stick to it at all.
As bad as women who get fat during winter and who make a half-arsed attempt to get in shape in spring are, they are still marginally better than the many women who just stopped caring about how they look and expect to get a top-shelf guy. If their buff billionaire doesn’t show up, their only options are getting a bunch of cats or propositioning guys from a low socio-economic background. I hear that plenty of aged feminists are chasing after gimmegrant dick. I wonder how that is working out for them. In any case, that is a fate they could have avoided by eating healthily and doing light exercise three times a week for half an hour, but that was apparently way too much to ask for.
