What is it about wanting someone unattainable that is so addicting?

May 26, 2015 2 min read

We've all found ourselves wanting what we couldn't have. Longing for that person we know we can never truly keep. It is tortuous, yet strangely addictive. That pain we feel when our object of affection does nothing to reciprocate our desires of love. Perhaps they only fulfil our desires of sex or perhaps they don't respond at all. We rake ourselves over the coals hoping that somehow they will have a change of heart. The sleepless nights we spend wondering how and why and if... atumb Could this exquisite pain, this devastating, difficult, desolate dalliance be actually addicting? Do we really crave the drama and hardship of love over more the simple and normal (some would say boring) side of things? "Some women chase unattainable love because, deep down, they don’t feel worthy of the real deal," says April Masini, a renowned relationship expert and author."Chasing unattainable love is also a distraction from the challenge that finding true love takes." The high we get from the "pain chase" could be because it is all we allow ourselves to have. Women can get stuck in a pattern of heartache over happiness because of subconscious insecurity. "Breaking free from a 'pain chase' requires an altered consciousness," says Masini. "In other words, you have to look at things differently than you have been. Decide what you really want and be brutally honest with yourself. It’s one thing to lie to others, but if you find you’re lying to yourself, you’re in trouble." The solution is to ask yourself the big questions. Do you want to marry? Do you want a family? Do you want to live in the city with your husband or move to the country to raise your children? Being very articulate and deniably honest with your inner feelings will set you free. It will map out exactly what you want and open the door for you to pursue it. Having a goal for a positive future is the first step in achieving a positive future. What do you think? Can we become addicts to unattainable love? Share your thoughts!

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 4-6 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.
