Yes Sir, in hindsight I do understand how it translates to coming off as a creepy come on. At the time, do understand I struggle with expressing my verbally and in fear of being misunderstood at a gym; which is often notorious for guys coming on to women — I thought to make myself clear. Not the best choice of words, but I did make my intentions known. In writing this story, I didn’t want to change that part to create a better narrative and as such referenced it verbatim.
Thank you for your response, kind sir.
