Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is amazing in so many different ways – not just on the mats, but off of them as well! Through training it, you grow as a person and are exposed to new opportunities, new possibilities… One of them, actually, being better able to find a girlfriend!
Here are four ways how BJJ can help you find a girlfriend.
IT’S EASIER TO MEET PEOPLE
When you begin training Jiu-Jitsu, you start meeting people from all sorts of different backgrounds. Whether you like it or not – that is, whether you’re more of an introvert or an extrovert – you’re „forced“ to shake hands and exchange names.
That does two things:
1) You get to meet interesting people who could, in one way or another, later introduce you to a potential girlfriend;
2) It gets easier for you to meet others and make friends, simply because of the volume of new people you’re meeting. And that makes you more confident in talking with others.
In that way, you’re both more confident in meeting people and striking up conversations. Both of which are of immense value when meeting a potential romantic interest.
LESS SCARED OF REJECTION
You’ve „lost“ so many times on the mats, haven’t you? You’ve made silly mistakes, lost dominant positions with too much ease, got tapped out by your training partners in so many numerous ways, and got outworked in competition to the point of embarrassment.
And do you know what that did for you? It made you less afraid of losing. It built you into a stronger individual, who’s less scared of rejection.
You don’t run away from challenges as easily as you did before. Instead, you go for them – being fully aware that, whatever happens, not trying at all would be much worse than that.
This is extremely important in finding someone who you’re interested in romantically. If you don’t have the courage to at least try, you’re going to have a difficult time finding a girlfriend.
JIU-JITSU MAKES YOU MORE INTERESTING
Do you know what sparks a person’s interest in an another individual? Sure, it’s being polite and interested into what that person has to say. But it’s also got to do with being interesting.
If you’re an interesting individual, you’ll find that other people are much more interested in you! It’s as simple as that.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds your interest-level. You’re now someone who, aside from other things, does a martial art, is getting better at it, and enjoys training it. And talking about it!
There are not many things as great as listening to someone talking about something with passion. Your potential girlfriend will notice that.
YOU MIGHT MEET YOUR GIRLFRIEND ON THE MATS
And lastly, there’s a strong possibility that you’ll meet an interesting woman on the mats, too! Be it in your own home academy, or when visiting/travelling to an another place.
A lot of Jiu-Jitsu athletes believe that a person who shares the same love and passion for Arte Suave would be an ideal partner in a relationship. And that’s not far from truth – as having a mutual interest as strong as BJJ can only make the relationship stronger!
Just make sure that, if you see someone on the mats who you happen to be interested in, to take it easy. There is nothing worse than making your Jiu-Jitsu training partner feel awkward because you were too pushy in pursuing a date with her.
In other words, if you don’t see her displaying interest as well, back off. It’s for the best.
