I attend a "bro" gym (read: straight) that has a very young, fratty membership, and as of late I've begun to feel that I'm being perceived as "creepy." Here's what I do:
1) The locker room has these disgusting rugs in front of the lockers so I stand just beyond them at the benches where I place my bag. That means when I change, I face outward vs facing the lockers. I think the other members find this creepy because they think I'm trying to take in the sights. I'm not, but I have never liked having my back turned towards anyone either (well, not in the gym ).
2) I'm always looking around the gym as I walk from station to station. As such, I catch glances and sometimes from the same guy more than once. Okay, okay, I am looking at the guys, but I'm not staring or cruising. Sheesh.
Anyhow I just feel like I'm one of the creepy guys. Is this all in my head? I also tend to have a serious if not angry look on my face. That's just how I look, but I know it doesn't help. Thoughts?
