    I couldn't go out with a girl who weighed more than me... does that make me a *******? Then again she would have to weigh 13 stone.

    Me and him are the same weight, he's just skinnier because he's a guy and I'm a girl, less body fat ratio etc.

    It doesn't make you a *******, no, but I think when you meet the right person it doesn't really matter as much as you thought it would, unless they're like proper OBESE !

    Hmm, my boyfriend carries some weight and I find him so sexy, the fact he has big arms, and that when we play he feels like hes really over powering me Tbh, body wise I don't like six packs or anything, I like an ordinary stomach and manly arms with long legs and a cute butt.

    But would you expect the same in return ?

    Well yeah, of course.
    I don't expect my boyfriend to just ignore and be happy if I suddenly gained 20 pounds.


    I'm not saying that I'd dump a guy because he gained a little bit of weight. But if that weight gain continued to go up, because he was eating fastfood/candy/cake/etc... all the time, I'd talk to him about it and try to help him to get back to a more healthy weight and better eating habits.

    Wouldn't bother me, unless he was obese. Even then it would mostly be a health thing.

    A few pounds however, I doubt i'd notice that much!

    I honestly don't know. My boyfriend is fairly skinny and when we're together we barely eat, just alcohol really... So I can't imagine him gaining weight, and nor would I want him to.

    I highly doubt my bf's going to 'let himself go' weight-wise anytime soon - but I wouldn't mind, i'm not exactly the model of health and fitness I used to be :rolleyes:

    If he put on serious weight, I'd tell him that I don't find it attractive and then give it a while to see if he lost the weight or carried on. If he carried on eating and putting on weight, to me that would mean he didn't give a s*** at what I thought anyway, so then I'd probably finish him! I think you're better off being honest! I mean I've been with my boyfriend for years now anyway and know him well enough to be able to tell him anything.

    In reality this would never happen. His dad is quite chubby and he's always said he won't end up like him! Plus the fact he's too into his fitness and has a physical job, so quite buff! On the other end of the scale I don't like really skinny guys either!
