The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    issue with gf...

    Our relationship is great, everything is great, really, I want to marry this women and she feels the same. There's one issue that bugs me though. Whenever I mention anything about medicine or medical care because I find it interesting and my dad is a physician, she gets all squirmy and antsy. It concerns me...why does someone hate medical care, medicine, and doctors to the point they cant even discuss it. She's almost defensive about it. To me thats a clear signal that she had aversion from it, but when I ask, she denies everything. Keep in mind we can discuss ANYTHING else, you name it, except this. Worried...

    any thoughts?

    I'd kill her.








































    No but being serious that is weird, there is something going on. Something happened in the past maybe that she has this really negative view on it. Really weird, keep trying to find out, goodluck.

    She has multiple STDs and she wants to continue having sex with you to make sure you have them all before she slaps you in the face and goes "HAHA! You're it!" and runs from the room.

    All you can really do it leave it alone or confront her about it. Personally, I'd like to confront her (well not me, but if I were you).

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    I don't see what the problem is? She doesn't like to talk about medical stuff. Like it bores her, or she gets grossed out? If that's all it is, then don't bring it up. Now if it's a matter of you want to be a doctor and she does't want you to be one, then I'd have issues. But if she's cool with what you want as your career but isn't hot on discussing details of surgery, then don't bring it up. Maybe I'm missing something.

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    I've confronted her many times about it, but the conversations are very short lived. I ask why do they bother you and she can't give me an answer, and the discussion just upsets her. I've asked about any negative past experiences and she replied no, so I'm a little confused. We're not talking about brain surgery or blood and guts; it could be anything medically related, something as benign as a doctors visit, it almost makes her sick. I keep saying just give me a good reason and she just says no, stop. Otherwise, she's logically wired; this is the single exception. As far as career goes, I wouldnt rule out being a doc, but I'd label it unlikely at this point, leaning towards physics. She wouldnt mind if I became a doctor at all though, she wants me to be happy and satisfied. Still worried...

    edit: she's not bored because of it.

    She probably doesn't want to talk about it because of how you'd feel about it, it could be some <girl> doctor thing, or maybe something about an ex, or maybe she just ain't ready to tell you yet. Don't sweat it though, unless you get a gut feeling, trust your instincts bro.

    It might prove to be a problem when one of you gets sick and needs some medication or something... You need to find out really if your that serious about her i rekon. Ring her mum up and explain things and mabye she can shed some light or give you a some clues about it?

    To clarify some points: I am 20 and she is 19, niether of us have had sex. I am worried because of the exact reason Exnor mentioned which is in a situation where she really needed medical treatment and she would deny it and harm herself...I think if it were that serious I would force her. She isnt so close to her mother and she doesnt get along with her so well. She's never been to a mental health professional either. She didnt have any serious boyfriends in the past.
