For many climbers, the gyms are a meat market, a place to go pick up the latest bouldering stud or sport climbing babe. For others, the climbing gyms are more of a butcher shop, a place to get shut down. Either way, there's often good comedy surrounding the dating scene and rock climbing. Climber relationships may be difficult at times but it's a great idea to be able to share your passion with your partner. Here's some of the best reasons to date a climber:
Look Good Climb Good
A Partner in Crime
Still unconvinced? Long time climber, Chris Weidner recently wrote a bit about why climbers make bad boyfriends/girlfriends for the Daily Camera. Weidner detailed why it's bad to date a climber citing the fact that climber dudes flake when conditions are good, that they freak out over their weight and they generally act like filthy caveman. Ultimately though, Weidner married a fellow climber and spends much of his time climbing with her.
So next time you're out climbing and see an attractive climber, just imagine romantic picnics out of the back of a Subaru. That climber boy will love your calloused hands and that climber girl will love having a belay slave!
