What's a swolemate
"I can't lift without you."
Many people believe in what we usually call a soulmate. A person you are bound to meet and fall in deep, profound love with. Some of us can even relate since it actually happened so many times. Yet, believing it or not is still a personal opinion and shouldn't be judged. There are people that go as far as believing that everyone has a soulmate on Earth, and is bound to meet this very person at a certain moment in his or her life. Where there are other people believing that we all got a soulmate with who love will forever be impossible. Sad, isn't it?
Now, lots of people find love through shared interests, challenge and even at first sight. But what if you were to meet your alter-ego, yet not feel love towards that person but rather friendship?
An interesting wordplay
A swolemate is someone you can't lift without. Hitting the gym without your favourite pal isn't the same game at all. In fact, you might even notice less gains without this person destiny itself chose to be your gym bud.
You always ask your swolemate for a spot if needed and can't ask anyone else. Even if he or she is at the water fountain hydrating, you rather wait for your pal to come back and spot you rather than asking a stranger. I mean, you can't CHEAT on your swolemate!
Some like curves, others are weird. That's right, you and your swolemate have the exact progression, even if one of you is more advanced. If your swolemate puts up 5 more pounds, that'll be a huge motivation to try it too. Unless of course you're worried about breaking your back, then don't.
Contagious overwhelming motivating aura
This person who looks at you while you do your sets, who make sure your posture and form is flawless. And of course, that person who screams his or her lungs out when you reach new goals.
Go, go... go!! YESSS! THAT'S MY GIRL! YOU SHOWED 'EM! OH MY GOD, LOOK AT YOU!!! IF YOU WEREN'T MY SWOLEMATE, I WOULD KISS THAT PRETTY FACE OF YOURS, YOU AMAZING CREATURE!
Cheat days just aren't the same without them
This person makes you feel better about yourself, even if you eat like a retarded starving iguana and feel like a huge pile of shit afterwards. It's actually the other way around, your swolemate will in fact try to eat more than you, erasing the entire guilt or the act and making you feel less of an abomination to the fitness micro-society.
Also, you'll get to talk about stuff you'd never talk about to anyone else, in front of a 8'500 calories meal.
Long distance relationships...
...are possible and quite easier than romance relationships. I mean, people will judge you if you receive naked pictures of your same-sex friend, even if not gay or whatever. It's the only person you are actually truly happy to see almost naked and proud to show off to your friends.
GUYS! Look at my gym buddy! He's getting better and better!
