Many people here have negative impressions of what gyms are about. Go back and read the comments above or see some of the other threads. Some very disagreeable conduct is tolerated in gyms here and it taints us all.

Quite likely. The old twat probably got a hard on from getting up close and personal with you. Especially if you were wearing skimpy or tight-fitting gym attire. He was probably racking his brain for an excuse to talk to you, and that was the best he could think of or dare to try. I don’t suppose it mattered to him that his intrusion into your orbit was far from welcome, and that your interaction was nakedly unfriendly. Maybe it even added a bit more spice to it for him. Like raping your personal space.
If I prioritized the acquisition of wealth above other purposes in life, I might still have come to Taiwan to study Chinese, but I doubt I would have remained here.

I assure you omniloqacious I wasn't dressed like a whore, I had on a regular tshirt ( not even a tank top) and some shorts, not booty shorts, just regular shorts
