You can't make him join you. If he wanted to come with you then he would. Just go. Take care of yourself and don't let his absence stop you from enjoying your exercise

There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.

I agree with the others - ask, but don't force the issue.

But you can tilt the tables a bit in the favor of 'yes' by:
* picking a nice sunny day to ask
* choose a nice route (eg. in a park)
* making it about health and enjoyment, not about 'losing weight'

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

what is in it for him? (besides spending time with you) :)

I agree with the others. ask him and if he doesn't want to go, go on your own. I believe me, I know how hard it is to go on your own. but you can do it

All the so called "secrets of success"will not work ... unless you do.

You can't make people exercise. They want to do it or not, but explain to him that the talking during the walking is fun and invaluable. I walked all my life, could never get my husband to join me. Finally, on doctors orders, he's been walking for the last three years.

Can't make him, but don't use it as an excuse or let it stop you. Perhaps you will inspire him. Maybe not. But put your own health and well-being first.

I had this problem with my walking buddy. I asked him to go, he said no, I walked without him, he changed his mind eventually and walked with me.

I agree; just ask him. If he doesn't want to go, then don't let that hold you back from going yourself.

By asking him.

You can't force him if he doesn't want to, and there are no tricks to make it happen. When he's ready, he'll join you. If he doesn't want to go, he won't. ;)

I would love to walk more in the morning other than my days off, but how do I get my walking buddy (boyfriend) to do it too.
