Dating and BJJ

So I have an online dating profile up...after I was sure I wanted to stick with BJJ, I added it to my list of interests. Anyone who's tried dating online know that, assuming you're reasonably attractive, your hobbies can make or break a guy's interest in you. You study massage? You're probably getting a lot of hits. Cat collecting? Not so many.

Anyway, a couple months back, I noticed that after updating my interests section, I started getting contacted by guys who were fans of the WWE (some that looked like they'd done some guest appearances)...not BJJ guys that happened to like WWE, but guys that watched wrestling on TV. I guess that's a big deal for a guy though...a woman that maybe, just maybe shares an interest, even if it's a somewhat distantly related one, in what they're passionate about. It really struck me as funny.

Hahaha, that's hilarious. Maybe you'll meet someone who trains! :)

I'm very interested to follow your experiences in this realm! I think dating a fellow jitsuka could be great or could end baaaaaadly, depending.... Good luck! Keep us posted! And stay away from the poseurs who wear Tapout but don't train ;)

thats too funny. i hope you can find someone who isn't a complete meathead. some of those wwe fans actually believe that is all real. yikes.

Dating someone who is into jiu jitsu could be incredibly awesome. I've been trying to get my girlfriend into BJJ for a long time, as having a home training partner on hand all the time would be unbelievably fantastic. :D

@Georgette, you're dead on. Those types of relationships always seem to be either super awesome or HORRIFIC. I think if it were a situation like Slidey's and you brought someone in though, it could work out...and I could drill whenever I wanted!

Yeah, try to find a black belt to date! lol

Megan said...

lol@ A.D. Best way to learn!

That'll be my new heading..."In search of jiujitsuka, higher belts only please".

It would totally be weird if I trained in the same gym as the girl i'm dating.
Especially if we broke up. Ouch! that would be super awkward, especially for her haha

Great post, lol. Although I would watch out for those black-belt guys from dating sites! :))
