Do you honestly worry about this kind of thing on a daily basis?

I make a point to not touch my mouth or eat anything until I've cleaned up, but if you go as far as to even consider antibacterial gloves (assuming you don't have some sort of autoimmune disorder) then I don't understand how you can function in daily life.

Do you wear gloves when opening public doors, using pens at the bank, handling money, etc?

I honestly couldn't care less if people use gloves. I think they diminish certain benefits, but whatever - that's the individual's choice. I think your reasoning is nutty, but that's a separate issue.

It's not like using a bar pad, however, which compromises stability and promotes bad form.

I wear full finger gloves because they help reduce calluses, improve grip, and reduce exposure to bacteria. What's nutty about this reasoning?

Maybe because I mountain bike and any mountain biker knows how important it's to have full finger gloves. I don't see what's the big deal about wearing gloves. If it makes some people here feel more manly to not wear gloves then be it.

A pad is a different topic all together and I agree with you 100%.

For what it's worth, it's less about the gloves and more about your nonsensical logic.

do you wash your gloves after every workout?

bacteria accumulates in your gym bag feeding off the sweat on the gloves / gym gear (did you know that sweat "smell" is from the fecal matter of bacteria feeding on it?) and will most certainly get all over your clothes, hands, face, mouth, nose, ears, etc. everytime you put those gloves on.

crazy logic

Ick. After that post, I think if we don't hear from z00 for a while, it's safe to say he's cuddled up in a closet with some lysol and hand sanitizer

You really want to go there again? Did you forget about the time you challenged us with "your girls" then I posted mine and only a month later you posted a thread in the love line section about how your girl isn't pretty enough? Do I need to post proof of my sex life for you? The wind blows and I'm up.

that was my goal lol, I didn't get as graphic as I wanted. I used to be a germaphobe as a kid, then I realized how ridiculous and fruitless it is. Living in a bubble = easy way to a short life. Body needs to learn to rid itself of these bacteria the natural way.

I wash them every few weeks, I do put anti bacteria solution on them after each work out (inside and outside).

The problem is that most of you don't pay attention to how disgusting people can be. Some pick their noses, others go to bathroom without washing hands, then you want me to touch the same equipment? You all nasty.

Bro please, there is a difference between a girl I take seriously and girls that I simply have fun with. Like I said it's impossible to find beauty, brains, and personality in one girl. So if you wanna go there, compare on the rest of the attributes. Plus your girl is old bro. All of my girls are 22-26 max.

No need to post proof of your sex life, let your gf say how satisfied she is.

Dabears, I'm in Toronto on a business trip. How far are you? Anything fun to do around?

I'm honestly curious - how do you handle other public/dirty things/situations? Door handles, cabs, public transportation, handling money, etc?

lol toronto is about a 5 hour plane ride from me, I'm a 1.5 hour plane ride from vancouver on the west coast.

not my usual stomping grounds unfortunately, but I would assume go out downtown. The women will be +++. If you want +++++ go to montreal.

I'm not OCD about other stuff. But particularly in a public place like a gym where people sweat, go to bathroom often, etc... I would rather minimize my contact with their $hit. Stuff you mentioned does not bother me as much. I mentioned two other reasons, it's not just about bacteria.

Well ya they'll but I'll also be older. Each person has their preferences. If you found all three in one girl then good for you. It's a different topic when it comes to girls' intelligence and personality. Most attractive girls are into some stupid majors in college (history, arts, etc...) I get along best with girls from a science/engineering/finance background. Most girls in those fields are not attractive. What does your girl do? You mentioned it in another thread but I forgot.

lol did not realize you were that far, but in the M3 you can make it faster than an airplane. I agree, some of the most attractive girls I have seen were in Montreal. In Boston, it's known that most of its guys/girls are the least attractive in US.
