Since I started climbing I've had a number of different climbing partners, but for the past year or so I have climbed with just my husband.

I found that climbing with other people I would push myself a bit harder... Both in the gym and outdoors. There must be a bit more competition, I suppose. But now we both find that we tend to just get out there and take it a bit easier. We have loads of fun, but we don't push the grades as much as we used to.

I know a couple of girls who claim they climb worse when their boyfriend is belaying them (my girlfriend included). I think this is because of the added pressure to impress.
Could be a good reason not to climb together.

It's all about how you go about the breakup. I've got a few ex's that are now genuine friends. My favorite way is to plan a breakup date together in advance. So by the time it comes around you've both had time to adjust and your already friends. Only works in the right circumstances I'd imagine.

I've seen some bizarre relationship theories and practice in my time but this takes the cake. I prefer to spend my energy on keeping a relationship working rather than inserting a sunset clause.

I prefer to climb with my partner. When Meg's belaying me I know that she is focussed on the job and supportive. When I am belaying her, I support her. The only downside is that she isn't relaxed when I'm on poorly protected stuff but I'm not too fond of that stuff either.

I know that this doesn't work for some couples. Emotions can turn things pear-shaped. You have to be honest with yourself and your partner.

I guess I'm coming at it from the Buddhist perspective of the impermanance of all things.
A practical application of the view that attachment leads to suffering.
I'm a 22 year old guy, my views might change in a few years

Detachment also leads to suffering, grasshopper. (apologies to M8...)

On the contrary, I'm not the one complaining about not being friends at the end of a relationship (no offence KP). I'm a big believer in long term commited relationships (I have good role models in my parents), just at the right time.

Anyway, lets not get into a philosophical discussion about relationships, that's not what this thread is about.

I noticed in the gym guys and girls are all eyeing each other off. Next time peoples are fantasising keep
this in mind...
Anyone ever thought about the relationship between a climbers climbing technique and their technique in
the boudoir?

Those who thump their way to the top of a climb prefer - ahem - thumping (wink wink nudge nudge).
Those who climb fast, finish quicker. Bad route reading, best to give those guys maps and directions?
powerful grippers - ouch!

Keep that in mind next time you're climbing...

Oh but you're right..... beginners are no good in bed. How many beginners do you know get it right? Afew
lessons, abit more time practising and then they begin to understand what their body is designed for -
climbig that is....Hehehe
Or... what about beginners with 'potential' - not quite there but are persistant and willing to try
Or... beginners who just don't get the point of it all....

What about climbers who are slow and methodical?... step 1: 5 mins stroking hair , step 2:.... all steps
must be completed

This does ring true for boulderers, i.e. not very big, don't stay hard for very long, all over with too quickly.
