5 Reasons Why Dating Is Awkward And Being Single Isn't

June 04, 2015 2 min read

Dating: the process of going out with new people in search of a connection. Being single: the experience of being independent and having fun, living by the philosophy of "whatever happens, happens". Here are the 5 reasons why dating can be exhausting and awkward. #1 Every first date runs through the same questions.  Dating: "Where did you grow up?" "What are you studying?" "So...see any good movies lately?" Being single you can expressive, random conversations with guys and if it's uninteresting, it's no big deal. #2 Picking the right outfit for every date.  You've developed a select wardrobe that rotates through the same 5 dresses you wear on your dates. But when you're single, you don't really care what you wear. You can dress it up and dress it down depending on your mood, you're not particularly trying to impress anyone but you don't have to feel you have to cover up either. #3 You never know what to order on dates. You struggle with making sure you order something on the menu that you can eat gracefully, but all you want is a juicy burger or bowl of pasta. The single life requires you not to care about your food indulgences, hoping someday you'll find a man who doesn't mind or pretends not to notice the sauce all over your mouth. #4 You run out of conversation when you're done the routine list of questions.  Dating: "Soo..umm...well then..." Being single means there's no routine, and no topic is off-limits. #5 Goodbyes are pretty awkward.  I once went on a horribly awkward date that ended with the guy hugging me and ever noticeably smelling my hair. For 5 minutes. There is no smooth transition when it comes to first date goodbyes. What are some of your first date horror stories? Share them with us!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
