I wouldn’t leave him or have less love or respect for him if he got big as a house.

I’m sure there would be a reason why, and he’s the man I love. I would be able to understand the reason.

He’s much more likely to go in the “skeletal” direction though; that’s just his physical make-up. Tall and lean, fast metabolism.

I think he is ummm, HOT!!! And I love that about him, but it’s not essential to our relationship. I do assume at some point we will lose a lot of the lust we currently have for each other. When I’m 88 and my skin is flapping in the wind, how hot do I think I’m gonna look? But that’s ok, we’ll still have love, and that’s the important bit.

If that happens sooner for one or both of us, we can deal. I don’t think this will be the biggest test for us. It just isn’t something we place a great deal of importance on. Definitely in the “perk” category, not the “essentials.”

But in the meantime… RAWR!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Originally I wasn’t attracted to Fiance at all. But over time I got to know him, was friends with him for nearly a year before we started dating and now I think he is the sexiest man ever ๐Ÿ™‚ I would still love him no matter what size he was, and I am glad he feels the same about me cos I have gained a lot of weight, (mainly due to medication) and haven’t been able to get rid of it. (Due to junk food addiction and lack of exercise) If he left me because I wasn’t losing the weight I would think ‘good riddance’, everyone deserves better than someone who thinks like that! He is an amazing support for me, and I support him, he is the most attractive person to me now ๐Ÿ™‚ The first photo is of us the night before we started dating, the second is of him at our engagement photos, it is my favourite engagement photo ๐Ÿ™‚

Lol well when we met I wasn’t reallly physically attracted to him, but he grew on me hehe. So I guess looks are not that important, he’s already on the heavier side and if he gained 10-30 pounds I wouldn’t mind but anything more than that I’m not sure how I’d take it.

My partner has been working hard to try to gain weight (he wants to reach the medically recommended weight for his height).  He’s only 15(ish) lbs short of his goal, and he’s proud of it!  He weighs the more right now than he’s ever weighed!  I’m proud that he’s got a goal and is working on it, but I honestly wouldn’t care if he was skinnier than he is now, or if he gained another 100 lbs.  I love him. 

I, on the other hand, am trying to lose weight, as I’m above the medically recommended weight for my height.  I think if I gained 100 lbs, he would have a problem with it.  He has issues with weight, connected to some stuff from his childhood and his mother.  But I also think that he would never just stand by and let me gain that much weight without attempting to intervene – I think he would step in and say, “Hey, I’ve noticed you’re putting on a lot of weight and I’m worried.  Let’s work on this.”  And I’d probably be pissed at first, but ultimately, I’d appreciate it.
