But I got to eat a lot.” Lochte, who will compete in the upcoming 2016 Rio Olympics, told the magazine that he's currently on Tinder, which he first heard about after the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, where the dating app “took off.” “I got on it and I’ve been matching up with a bunch of gorgeous women who are smart, they have professional jobs and everything,” he said.“If I asked her, ‘So what do you do,’ she was like, ‘I’m an accountant’ — that’s it. I’m like, ‘OK, so …” “Through text messages and on the phone, she talked, but then in person, it was just like she was a mute and I was like, ‘Can you please say something? “I’m like, ‘Wow, this is perfect.’ So I’ve been on Tinder lately. I’ve just been talking with a couple [women].” “I could never, no!” Lochte told Us at an Airweave So Ho event in March.“I mean, I just never really tried to go out and date.It just kind of happened, but now that I have someone, it is stability and it is nice. 4- we do it fast or slow 5 - we do it 4 different ways 6 - no matter how tired we get we always keep going 7 - we do it in cold or in rain 8 - we do it in water 9- we're always ready to go fast 10- it wont take long to get us undressed 11- we have excellent endurance and stamina 12- we don't mind when it gets a lil rough 13-we not afraid to show our breast or fly 14-we always have ruber on us 15-we have the best bodies of any other athletes 16-You got a full ass shot on the starts. 17-It's okay to moon people in the Locker Room. 18-every once in a while the guys get excited and shave themselves. 20-swimmers are known for their endurance, so we last much longer when we're in "the zone".
