Boyfriend’s Weight Is Ruining Our Relationship

Group Therapy: Boyfriend’s Weight Is Ruining Our Relationship

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!


I have been dating my boyfriend for 3 years. I meet him in a time where I was lonely and need it affection and love from someone. He is a great guy and from the beginning he treated me like a princess, he pleases me in everything he can. The problem is he have gained a lot of weight, I will say he is over 50 pounds; I don’t find him attractive any more.

I spoke to him several times regarding the problem, most of the time we end up arguing. Some other times he promises me he is going to lose weight and he takes care of himself for a couple of days then he stops and doesn’t do anything to solve the problem. He has time for the gym but honestly I don’t know why he doesn’t go. I know he loves me and he is a great guy, but I feel I cannot be with someone like that. I feel attracted to other guys and I think constantly about the problem. On the other hand, I am skinny and I always take care of myself, I have many guys who are attracted to me, but I have been trying to be good and not leave him but it got to the point that I don’t know what to do.

Please advice,
