One of our readers wrote me asking how she should handle a dating dilemma. She has been dating a man who is a little “husky” and is extremely shy about his body. He was in a car accident last year, so his activity level has dropped dramatically, and he is not at all comfortable at this size.
While he is actively working on getting back in shape, he does not want her to see him without clothes. A lot of people have body issues that can impede intimacy with their partners. When you have this kind of hang up, it helps to be with someone who understands and is supportive.
How do you really show support to someone who isn’t comfortable with their own body?
If you are someone who has this image issue, do you talk about it openly? Would you want your partner to bring it up?
What happens to your dating relationships when you have an issue with your appearance?
