BJ'S BLOG 07/18/13 "Gaining Weight"
Yesterday on the show, I read a survey that asked men if they’d dump their girlfriend if she gained, quote, “a significant amount” of weight.
When it comes to American men, it was split down the middle with 50% of men say they’d dump her while 50% say they wouldn’t.
They also surveyed men in Canada, the U.K., and Australia and the men in Canada were the only ones more likely to dump a girlfriend for gaining weight, 52% to 48%.
The thing is, we men are told to not look at woman physically but we still do because that is the biology of being a man. When it comes to getting married, guys know that they need to look at more than just looks; it’s about her personality and their ability to solve problems as a team.
However, I believe that when people enter a long term relationship, they should put in some effort to try to appeal to their significant other.
We as men won’t really notice some weight gain or aging, but we appreciate it when our ladies want to look their best for us.
Some women will probably think that is a shallow expectation but I truly believe that it is equally shallow when men are forced to be their woman’s therapist.
It seems fair that if a woman tries her best, even if she doesn’t look anything like she did when you first met, but if she’s trying her hardest to look good for her man, than I think in return he should do things for her like listening and supporting her.
I don’t value that more than a woman appearance. I’m not a trained therapist and it’s just as shallow to use me like one. Marriage is simple, do what I like and I’ll do what you like.
