I could have written the same exact words about my wife. (though 13 years married).
lol, i don’t think that 15 year old’s even know what a super nintendo is
I’m guessing that it’s not so much about her seeing you on the unicycle… but about you being a unicyclist. She doesn’t like that you’ll be identified that way. “the guy who rides a unicycle”. I mean otherwise, she’ll have a hard time finding anyone to be with if they can’t do anything that isn’t sexually appealing to her.
I can kind of understand this if I think in the extreme. A woman finds out her boyfriend is an axe murderer. She no longer can imagine having sex with him.
On the other hand, it sounds like maybe she’s just playing the sex card. She doesn’t prefer you to be the unicycle guy. She doesn’t want her friends/family mocking/questioning. It’d be easier for her if you were just rode on two wheels. How does she stop you from doing it? Withholding sex. She’s controlling you with your joystick.
Sounds like you should be dating S____
ha, S____ is a cool girl, but I love my sweetie very much.

this is pretty much it. as I said, I already have a unicycle in the mail, so I’m not really playing her game. I’m going to make her watch the videos posted today and hope that she can see the light. if she still doesn’t, well, she will have to deal with it. if me riding a uni is really that big of a turn off, then I guess we were never meant to be.
It’s hard to imagine her ending a good relationship over this. She was loyal enough to stick with her friend, so chances are pretty good for you. She thinks she would lose sexual interest in you because you unicycle? That sounds like melodrama to me. It’s not like you’re going to bring the unicycle to bed with you (you’re not right?)
Maybe you just need a sexy outfit to wear when you ride…
Eh, I’m sorry, the back-story just made me think that she is being even more ridiculous. Associating the act of unicycling with degree of sexy-ness is just stupid. If she found you sexy when you weren’t doing anything, then unicycling shouldn’t have ruined that. If you were a “cool” skater and switched to unicycling, or something of this nature. I could understand.
I’m jumpin on Flyjeffva’s boat and saying to date S-Blank, I think many of us want uni-girls
It sounds like you are really into this girl and a good relationship is worth more than a unicycle so you can redirect the shipping to my house.
sorry mate, she lands at my work this friday, and I am going to be glued to the seat post all weekend. you’re more than welcome to take the girl in the meantime though
I am among the happily married crowd Was just trying to help.
Maybe she just needs to accept that unicycles are a cross she has to bear. Maybe she’s shallow and dumps you. Enjoy your new toy! Hope to see you hanging around, you are a good sport.
This issue might not be the unicycle, but that the need to unicycle might cause you not to pay as much attention to her as she might need/like. Any hobby or interest that takes your time away from her might be a problem. If you could get her hooked on unicycling you will be lucky, but don’t count on that happening.
I am lucky, my wife has become addicted to painting, so she doesn’t notice it so much when I go ride my unicycle for a hour or two a few times a week. If I expand my rides to a few hours a few times a week a problem might arise. So far so good.
I, too, am one of the lucky men whose wives accept their strange hobbies.
Just tell her it’s great for the abs. (It’s true!)
How can you make unicycling sexy? You can’t.
Ride because it’s fun, unique, challenging, and great exercise.
No offense, but your girlfriend is shallow if she considers unicycling a dealbreaker.
A good uni will always be there for you…
He can get another uni and put handlebars on it, and trick her into thinking it is just a bike.
Now that’s sexy
ive had lots of mixed views from the female population about unicycling. Overall ive had lots of negative comments when i tell people i unicycle so i leave it at that. Then later on in a few months they stumble across one of my videos and they freak out and then they change their minds
and yes my sig is a quote
I would choose to keep Unicycling, and dump the gf, if she wanted me to stop riding because she said it was a “turnoff”. I would say, there’s the door, baby. Don’t let it hit your A## on the way out! Her loss.
Bottom line: GFs are temporary. Uni is for LIFE!
Yeah I don’t typically tell people I unicycle. If it comes up, I usually mention mountain unicycling, which most people have not heard of, and it’s a lot easier for them to appreciate immediately, as opposedto trying to explain things like street or flatland unicycling.
And I don’t tell them that I suck at it either
Take her to a large unicycle meeting. Maybe then she’ll feel like the un-cool bi-ped limited person among the group… and discover an new perspective.
As if there is a large group of unicyclist anywhere… Never mind.
Dont forget videos like unicycle basketball or hockey, those are pretty cool too, at least I think so.
