The "neatly folded" part tells me he's gay.

///I'm sure that's not the only thing he neatly folds...

dj_bigbird: As long as he's not wearing a sports bra, that'd be just weird.


Unless he's got moobs, in which case a sports bra might make him more comfortable running.

Alternate explanation:

He has a combination workout/humiliation fetish, and he wants you to grab a strap-on and criticize his "form."

She's just jealous because he looks better in her clothes than she does.

blatz514: zarberg: blatz514: I hope this doesn't turn into a dudes wearing yoga pants thread.

I wore my wife's once. They're comfy, and I had the flu.

As long as you didn't take pics, I'm ok with that.

/I'm usually pants-less when I have the flu.


Most people don't want to see me fully clothed, I wouldn't inflict them with pics of that. Ewwww.

Besides, my wife looks darn good in them

Funny enough, about an hour ago I was standing at the living room window checking to make sure the car was still warming up when I saw my neighbor dash out to start his wearing a frilly pink nightgown and pink fuzzy slippers.  Not a good look for him.

/To each his own.  Party on, Dude...

i was taking the trash out to the curb once, and i put my wife's old shiatty clogs / mule shoes on to walk out to the curb.....where my neighbor was.  she's like, "........love your shoes!"

Shhhh. Don't blow it for the rest of us.

"Of course I wear women's clothing when I work out at the gym. What other explanation could there possible be for that sports bra in my gym bag?"
 
2013-02-19 12:00:44 PM
Do you love him? Does what he wears when he jams on the treadmill matter more than how much you love him? simple math. Smartass aside, talk it out and act like adults. My wife has worn a dress less than a dozen times in a decade. The fact that she wears t-shirts and jeans or a button up blouse and slacks doesn't offend me. So what if I decided to wear very form fitting spandexy type clothes to admire myself while I run on the treadmill. I could just say screw it and run naked I suppose.... Make sure he doesn't want to have a sex change (that can be alot for a couple to handle) and tell him his ass looks nice in his spandex.
 
2013-02-19 12:11:30 PM
Mrs. robertus and I came to the same conclusion yesterday. If it was just a matter of fit, comfort, or support, that's one thing, but the "Bo Derek running on the beach" thing veers it into kink territory. Which, in itself, is fine, so long as both parties are cool with it.
 
2013-02-19 12:14:53 PM
Yeah that's kinda weird.

Although as a runner I will confess to taping my nips and wearing thin, tight undershorts (made for men but they aren't too far removed from pantyhose-like material, honestly) on long runs. I do it (honestly, I swear to FSM) because otherwise the chafing is bloody farking murder. My wife is ok with it.

Well sure, when he starts stretching out your clothes, it's time for him to buy his own shiat
 
2013-02-19 12:20:54 PM
Are woman really that stupid? Lots of men workout wearing tight womans clothes. The clothes fit to the contours of the body better and show off muscles far better then a sagging loose shirt.

Thats it, its that simple. He likes to look at his body while working out.
 
2013-02-19 12:23:06 PM
I'm pretty sure my wife would buy me all the frilly dresses I wanted if I would get my fat ass on a treadmill.

bingo! he's banging some broad and wifey caught him with one of the outfits she wears for him that her own husband has never seen. hubby was washing it himself, wifey was never supposed to see it. stupid broad.

Prudence is just a prude. My answer would have been "This might be a new thing to spark up the romance."
But at least "Go along with it to find out just how freaky your husband is to see if it is tolerable or if you need to kindly split up".

It already sounds like they should part ways because of her being so troubled by it.

There's a guy at my gym who is a lawyer, drives a Ferrari with the license plate "PUMP FE" and is called "kitchen sink" by the trainers because supposedly he does all sorts of steroids.

He has a wig, fake tan, beer gut, and walks around wearing leopard stretch pants with an old sweatshirt that has some sort of California logo on it along with a weight belt that has "HAMMER" stenciled onto the back.  He carries a
a gallon milk jug that has some sort of green goo in it and has "Gorilla Juice" written on it in red letters. He is a trip!  He enters weight lifting contests as frequently as possible just to get a medal for even ENTERING the
contest, he puts them on his sweatshirt and when he talks to girls he will scratch himself just where the medals are so they will flash and jingle.

But he NEVER LIFTS weights!  He struts around profiling and will maybe lift one weight one time while yelling as if he is passing a watermelon from his butt and will then drop the weight and stand up slamming his hands together as if he just bench pressed a locomotive.

I once observed him in action for 20 minutes.  He walked around this leg press machine and began stacking 45 lb weights on it and would slam each and every weight on it (WHAM!  ARRR!).  He did this for about 10 minutes until he had 900lbs on it.   He then sat down and began wrapping his knees (5 minutes) and then walked around shaking the machine and screaming (3 minutes).   He then called some guys over to spot him by standing on each side of the machine while he sat in it and motioned at them to get ready.   He then let out this huge yell and started straining while screaming until he was red in the face...nothing happened....he did it again with more effort...I was sure his nuts were going to explode. The weight barely moved up..not even enough to unlock the machine...and he leaped off thanking his 'spotters' and then strutted around drinking his juice..

Supposedly he is a pretty good lawyer!

haha!! so funny. youll see a few guys like that in all gyms. wasting time, dressing weird, doing nothing, wrapping their knees for one lift. complete waste of time. the leopard print pants has to be funny to see. you gotta snap a pic next time

Hey, Prudence gave some decent advice. Nice.
 
2013-02-19 01:05:27 PM
Um. She never said what the workout clothes consisted of. I was at practice with my running group yesterday evening and for some reason everyone decided to show up wearing the official club shirt. Since they don't bother printing separate shirt styles for men and women, we were all wearing exactly the same clothes, allowing for size differences: short or long-sleeved shirts (all red, all matching) with tights of varying length or nylon running shorts.

ladies:  please quit going to the grocery store / library / whatever immediately post-workout, in your yoga pants with your sweaty asshole hanging out for the whole damn world to see.  it is disgusting and nasty and just foul.

go home and get cleaned up before you start flaunting your sweaty damn asshole all over town.


I can count on one hand the number of women I have known who exercised hard enough to actually sweat. None did yoga.

I don't get the problem here.

Women can throw on a guy's t-shirt and jeans, and nobody says a word about it. They can grab their husband's oxford shirt and a pair of his sweats and run to the grocery store wearing that ensemble, and nobody calls her a cross-dresser or questions her sexual orientation.

But the minute a man puts on a pair of women's PANTS-- not even a skirt in this situation, but PANTS-- people are all "ooh, he must be a f♣g!" and "what a perv!"

The double-standard is ridiculous. It's even worse when you consider that it used to work the other way around, back in the days when a woman wearing pants was scandalous. Now, it seems women get ALL the choices when it comes to clothes, while men continue to be stuck with the same outfits.

And if you go back far enough, it was the men who were allowed to dress in frills, lace, makeup, wigs, and other such things.

Our ideas about fashion and gender are so screwed-up these days. So the guy likes wearing women's gym clothes. Who cares? Does he still like f♥cking his wife? Then SHUT UP.

Erm, what the fark is the problem here? Sure, it's kind of a WTF moment, but if the guy likes women's clothes...so? Yeah, ask him if he's trans, but what, are we worried he'll suddenly  make himself trans or something?

And yes, I know that's the fear here. I'm pretending people aren't  farking stupid.

What, exactly, does this woman have to be worried about? She keeps talking about a 'slippery slope'. To what? He's wearing women's clothes, so...he's wearing women's clothes. That's it.

Now, this worry makes sense if you're stupid enough to think that wearing women's clothes is a 'slippery slope' to becoming trans, but that's the only way it matters. I mean, hell, I wear guy clothes because I grabbed some that were on sale. Is that a 'slippery slope' to anything? No, because they're pieces of cloth. I've still got a vagina, and this guy's still got a dick. World ain't ending.
