"I'm going to switch things up a bit. I think you're using this search for a relationship as way to ignore dealing with not being part of any meaningful work.  Don't get me wrong. Love is wonderful and important. But without the…"

Advice needed to obtain a love interest

Ok... I'm not looking to get into a relationship just yet. I know I'm not that great of a prize for the time being. I took a couple real hard punches to the kidneys when the economy took a giant dump. I'm 30, living with my mother, working in a part time gig in the mean time trying to get my resume and skills up to par... In the mean time I need some food for thought. I had been in a relationship through the summer, it ended late October. Single again, and I don't even have a glimmer on the…See More

What would be considered physically weak?

I'm obviously not a gym rat and I'm very ignorant about fitness, but I am trying to improve my health and overall body composition. To skip the point, I'm not certain on how to have a decent workout and what defines someone as physically strong. Though I'm not entirely sure of what I can do (or what my max is), the last amount of weight I've squatted was 205 lbs. which doesn't seem to be a lot since I believe most people can squat twice their weight (I weight 234 lbs. or so). I did 10 reps of…See More
