I joined a gym in my town and try to get to it at least once a week. I know it should be a minimum of 3 times. So I had this brilliant idea I would go on Craigslist and look for a partner, This is what I posted.

Anytime Fitness work out partner - m4m - 57 (Powder Springs)
age : 57 height : 5'9" (175cm)
I am looking for a workout partner to meetup at Anytime Fitness I prefer early mornings but early evening after 7 30 pm could work to. I am way out of shape and just need a partner basically in same situation so we can help each other. I posted looking for a man but it could also be a women all we would be doing is supporting each other working out. Might even start walking the Silver Comet when the weather warms up a bit.

OK now I expected the normal spam and such but besides that every reply was from someone wanting to exchange BJ,s or more or become text buddies.

I am not slamming anyone here and I know I am still curious and confused about my own sexuality but come on as far as I can tell there is nothing in it that would lead someone to think of Sex. This is why I truly distrusts men to begin with, So I am going to struggle and try and get my rear to the club myself and work out alone.

OK I am done ranting now. and if I posted in the wrong place sorry.

I put in an ad for something similar a year ago. I got a few replies from hookers!

Craig's list is not the place for legit meet requests.

Lost,

The only thing that would lead someone to think of sex in what you posted is that it's found in Craigslist. I sold an old mountain bike and some backpacking equipment on there, but some of those personal ads are pretty wild. Some of those folks can sexualize anything---and I mean anything.

A typical ad: "Trek Mountain Bike for Sale"
Response: "Show me some pics and lets make this happen
Me: "Sure, here are five pictures of the bike, notice the scratches on the frame."
Response: "Now get on that bike naked and let's really make this happen. Pics please."

Uh…no.

You live and learn Lost. Go work out consistently and you'll see others doing the same and ask them to spot you occasionally if you are lifting weights. Before you know it, you will get to know others at the gym who can be of help. Join a class where you are put in with others who are getting back into shape.

Just a few thoughts…

Will

Hey Lost,

Read your post and immediately thought of the website http://www.meetup.com/
You may have better success with this site.
I have a standing search for a SA survivors group nearby.
I have not had any luck yet, but have not been inundated with inappropriate responses either.

Good luck.
