Missed the online dating scene by a generation. I didn't know my wife's PRs when we met, but at the time they were ca. I remember her eyes glassing over when I went over my history so I changed the discussion topic. She follows running casually, but can take it or leave it. Which, well, nevermind. I met a girl on match that enjoyed running that was more into all-round fitness worked out twice a day but began to run more after we met. I didn't know her last name until a few datings into so there was no searching for her pr's prior.
I have taken a few out from hinge and yes, I check out there times before meeting or after meet. It's obvious with for couple they have put on lb's as their current physique isn't capable of a half marathon. The match girl and I website go running weekly. If I was doing a recovery run we would run together. I always enjoy doing those runs. Dink move, but one time she pissed me off about something so I pushed the pace for hertalked a ton, made it uncomfortable for her to run. It was funny, as she prided herself on runner a college athlete and did not like being shown up.
Yes, I like to look up a girls races if we meet on hinge and which lists their last name. That and check out their facebook generally some pics are open to public viewing.
One girl who was decent hobby jogger BQ by minutes type loved to run. I noticed during the Boston marathon time frame she either posted something about Boston or changed her profile pic to something Boston related like 4 times in a week. Not surprisingly, she was a dud and running was one of the few things she could talk about. I personally prefer women who put up average times and are well-rounded. The faster woman are annoying and often selfish.
The perfect running date
I can't really respect the 5 hour plus marathoners running who gloat about their marathons when they are capable of a better effort and treat the race like a danm parade. On the day I got my Boston qualifier in the low 3s after a lengthy struggle to do so, I mentioned it to a girl I had met online who was an ultra runner.
She sniffed, "so what? I ran miles in under 30 hours this weekend" at an ultra on a flat gravel circular path, not western states or the like She was never going to do road races again as she claimed they were boring. Left unmentioned was her tendency to bring up the back of the pack with a top mile pace of about eleven minutes.
I stopped talking to her right after her dismissive remark.
Old thread, but still an interesting topic. Shared interest in running is nice, but to me dating runners is more a matter of lifestyle compatibility. If you're a serious runner, it's likely that we also have a of other more important things in common.
I probably would check out the PRs of a girl I met online, but more out of curiosity than with the intent to exclude anyone. I'd be really excited to find out that the girl had been a DI All-American, but I wouldn't think less of her if it turned out that she was a 4 hour marathoner. I met a girl on Ok Cupid.
She had some college Xc and track pictures up that caught my attention. Based on her age, first name and school I was able to look up her times and I was pretty impressed to find out that she was around 5k and for the Been happily together over 5 years now, married 2.
Can you meet your perfect partner through running?
She is not as competitive anymore but enjoys the easy trail runs we do together times a week. She can still run around 5k in the occasional race we do together.
She still makes fun of me for creeping on her times before we even met. Showing 21 to 33 of 33 posts. Runners and online dating. Other Running Related Topic Other.

Keep up the Pace. Hunk wrote: If your date won't shut up about how awesome their PR is, then, I agree, that's annoying. Though it's no less annoying than you bragging about your PR not saying that you actually do this on a date. Additionally, if they are a narcissistic, entitled, ambitionless person in general, then I also agree that is undateable. However, if you truly have trouble relating to someone because they don't share the exact same passion as you, then you are the problem, bud. I don't brag about my PR.
I guess my issue is that if they are going to claim that they are dedicated runners, they ought to run full bore and not just lolly gag with the cell phone selfies, the ever present headphones and iPod and expect to be congratulated on a time that I could have walked faster than they ran. Eldish runner. The immense truth of this cannot be understated.
Says someone who can't get a date either way. Can't get a date with the shy shot put girl if I tried. You won't believe me, because this is the internet, but over the years I've date top executives that did triathlon, super sweet model types 2 years relationship who just didn't do any sort of sports, and many recreational atletes who make elite runners look dried out and old for their age.
Online dating may come natural to some, but it's still quite an art. The good thing is you don't need to die of humiliation trying to chat up to the waaaay out of your league club's favorite only for her to say you seem real sweet, but no. And I've come to learn that it's not about picking the one hot super sporty chick, although she does have endless appeal still, but there are women powers of magnitude more interesting.
And not any less hot. And under-represented online. I do actually get in touch with quite a few professional singers.
Primary school teachers who are into photography and yoga are a whole category of their own, and worth exploring. Oh, Yoga teachers and crossfit chicks with gym mirror selfies One shelf too high for me right now, but I'm not giving up!
