    Wearing gloves in the gym or leave it with calluses

    I like weightlifting and I venture to the gym frequently. Something I noticed though, when I shake hands with my female friends and gay friends, they either frown their eyebrows and look at their hands or make a comment.

    Is it not attractive? I sort of like showing that I am a hands-on guy but I don’t want to scare anyone off. Should I bother wearing gloves?

    I’m guessing you do wear gloves?

    No, I don’t. I’m asking if I should start wearing them. Do people find it more attractive to shake hands with someone who has smooth palms or am I’m ok with the calluses I have now?
    I could buff them out and pick them with tweezers if I really want to, I’ve done i before because my sister was the first to say something.

    I’d say i all matters on the reactions you’re getting. Do you care what your female friends or gay friends think?

    Hey sorry I didn’t reply, thanks for listening. I decided o start wearing gloves to the gym every now and then. I’m getting a better workout anyway and also protecting my hands. They’re not as callusy anymore so I feel better about myself.

    Thanks.
