Dating a cyclist have dating rules changed
They enjoy traveling Augustine of Hippo said it best with this line: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." If you often find yourself consumed by a sense of wanderlust, why not date someone who is a total expert at traveling?
Because they spend so much time wandering around, having a sharp eye for great vacation spots is in their nature.
According to the same survey, cyclists are generally viewed as 10 percent more charitable than non-cyclists.
Pro cyclists live, on average, 6.3 more years than non-cyclists.
One of the greatest traits of cyclists is that they are incredibly strongwilled, choosing to ride regardless of bumpy surfaces and less than ideal situations. Who wouldn't want a guy who is willing to make things work despite the many obstacles, trials and tribulation that threaten to tear a relationship apart?
To wit, my line-by-line critique: 1) No woman, ever, ever, evereverever, has looked at a dude’s sweaty bulge, semi-transparent crack covering, or dawn-over-the-sahara tan lines and said, “THAT looks like dating material.” 2) I’m pretty sure women’s tennis is the only sport where mediocre athletes are considered more attractive than all-stars. If the children of the corn don’t get to you first, you will get to spend the ride home being yelled at because he dropped the bottle you tried to hand him as he blazed by at mach 3.
You see, e Harmony recently put out a list of the 15 reasons why you should date a cyclist.
As we all know, there are countless more reasons, but it’s nice to see the rest of the world taking notice of just how awesome we all are [insert internet sarcasm here].
Hopefully this extends to their pursuit of relationship success, too. If you want a forward-thinking date, look no further. Cyclists have great near-death-experience stories to share, which is also why they’re also sticklers about safety. In fact, the whole family can join in, should the two of you eventually procreate. 9) Like Great Danes, cyclists look hard working, but pretty much spend all their non-cycling time eating and sleeping. 12) Your date will be thrilled to share his enthusiasm for all things cycling related: bicycles, bicycle parts, bicycle riders, bicycles races, bicycles, bicycles, BICYCLES!
Cyclists are disciplined, often rigorously so, and will withstand the elements to get their rides in. Cyclists are constantly setting goals for themselves. Your date will be thrilled to share his/her enthusiasm for the sport. According to a 2013 survey by the National Cycle Network, cyclists take half the number of sick days as their public transportation-riding colleagues. Think your date’s obsession with the open road is a little over-the-top? Studies have shown that vigorous exercise like cycling can boost concentration and memory while reducing stress and anxiety. 8) In the face of defeat, cyclists are rather notorious for cheating. 10) Cyclist’s goals are often related to body fat percentage. 11) Someone who is safety conscious has had, at most, one near death experience, and they don’t consider it “great.” If you gleefully recount multiple said stories, you are not safety conscious, you are member of the Dauntless Faction.
