A few weeks ago, I received an email from a guy asking for advice. He wanted to know if I thought it was a a good idea for him to ask his girlfriend to lose some weight. It was beginning to become a problem for him and he said that he cared for her, but too much weight gain could be a deal breaker.
I think people usually gain a little weight when they settle into a new relationship. I know many couples that put on a couple of pounds right after they started dating. You skip your work outs more. You are dining out more. Not to mention, you aren’t actively trying to seek out attention from other people because you are so smitten with your new boo.
Doesn’t everyone gain the “new relationship” weight in the beginning?
Would you bring up the fact that your date has been putting on a little weight? Do you think that would make you a shallow jerk who doesn’t really care about them? Is there a good way to do it without causing a massive fight?
Have you ever dated someone and their looks started to change soon after?
