Ever been to obsessed?
Im starting to think bodybuilding is become to big of a obsession for me.
when I look back at this last 6 months I have done absolutely NOTHING except lift weights, think about lifting weights, read about dieting and plan my meals and dream of and planing my bulk cycle.
Its not like Im totaly suffering from it cause I love lifting more then anything else! No place feels as much as home as the gym does
But because of my obsession I have made no new friends at all since I moved here(I left my hometown last summer and started college in the town I now live in). I almost never party cause I hate alcohole and I dont like to do drugs more then 2-3 times a year and beeing out partying feels like a waste of time I could have spent eating and recovering instead.
The problem is it seems like partying is the only thing "normal" people care about around here.
I have no other hobby then lifting and the class Im in at uni sux big time. So how the hell am I suposed to meet new people
Anyone know any good way of meeting people(girls especialy) WITHOUT getting drunk or spending time at some **** bar or club?
Im a TOTAL lone wolf nowdays and I cant say I enjoy it, a trip back to my hometown 2 weeks ago made me realise just how **** much I miss having good friends around me

For some reason I dont get along so well with "regular" people either. I dont enjoy there company that much. I mostly only like the company of serious bb'ers(or pl'ers) or martial artists. Seems like bb'ers and people doing martial arts in general have a slightely different and more sic, brutal and perverted sense of humor that I appriciate alot

thanks bro, yes she's a looker anyway as far as being obssessed is, the most criticism ive ever received is for logging in my daily calories/intake of food. when i do it in the office, my friends comment that i am such a hard worker for computing profits during lunch time. if only they knew what i was computing

Johan, just because you are obsessed with the gym, MA and strongman stuff doesn't mean you can't go to the parties and clubs to pick up women. Not everybody at a party is f'd up and if you go often enough you will find a lil sweetie, I guarantee it. There are always others who aren't into the party scene that turn out just to meet people.

I know what you mean about trouble meeting women if you dont drink and party but you're in college. You've got options like meeting girls in class or getting a new job for a month meeting all the girls there, quitting, then finding a new one and doing it again. Its good to be obsessed, it means you found something that you love, which most people cant find.

Im obsessed also.. food, weights, training and aas is all i talk and think about .. lol.. and dance.. but I guess that falls under cardio!

Dont get me wrong I love to live a life centered around lifting and growing, but I think that if I 5 years from now look back and notice that I have done nothing else then lift and eat, not giving a **** about anything else I would be disapointed with myself. theres got to be more to life then lifting and having a few hobbies on the side cant possibly hurt muscle gains.
Right now I have no life, my days look like this, I go to uni(or well I wont be doing that this coming year cause Im going to take a study break and work), I come home, go to the gym. Then I eat a couple of times do cardio and surf the boards or watch tv and thats how EVERY day of EVERY week looks like except the days I dont lift, those are even more boring and the weekends I spend watching movies I have downloaded. Some weeks when I have no school I can go without having even one singel conversation with anyone(not couting online offcourse)!!
Worse is that the people I have meet and gotten to know a bit so far is not at all my kind of persons. I can hang with them when partying a couple of times a year and chitchat a bit with them betwen lectures, but I cant se myself spending any other time with them.
So Im all out of idea on where I can meet and get to know interesting people(not only females)and its a shame cause back in my hometown I almost never spent any day alone. Always hanging with friends, laughing my ass of and having a good time. **** I miss that and most of all I miss laughing
Feels like Im TOTALY wasting my life sitting here alone infront of the god **** tv or computer not doing anything worthwhile except lifting. Im going ****ing nuts but I dont know what to do cause partying is not the solution for me. I have totaly lost the ability to find friends and I have no social skills at all. Its almost phatetic

at american universities there are a lot of clubs, fraternities, intermural sports that even include weight lifting. if you look into your university im sure you will find a club or group of people who you can meet and relate to. if not start a weightlifting club. i watch plenty strongman contests and they're never lacking in scandinavians so im sure you could get plenty of people to join..just a few suggestions. good luck

The way I see it is I'm working my ass of now and missing out on a few things once in awhile to make my future better... What I mean by that is, if I'm 20 pounds heavier and 5% BF lower, I can attract a more attractive girl than if I wasnt. Its all about quality and how bad you want it. I can "date" a girl or mess around with her if she's less than perfect but i don't "go out" with a girl unless she is like.. immaculate. I have too god d@mn high standards. So, I guess I just have to bring myself up to the standards of someone like that. When i'm railing a girl that looks like she could be on the cover of cosmo then all the sets reps and meals will be worth it.

I used to be a regular at one bar, kinda like Norm in Cheers. I would get at least one girl a week from that bar easy. Now that I found this site, I can't even think or talk about anything but weights, food, my cycle. I haven't been to a bar in a month since I started this. Needless to say I could use a slump buster about now also. I don't miss it at all. I like the way I feel and look at lot more than I did when I drank three times a week.
