This or That: He Puts on Weight or You Do?

You and your boyfriend have been dating for over a year now, and while you both prided yourself on working out prior to your relationship, after changes at work, and a decrease in free time, life has gotten in the way of your usual routines. After months it’s finally showing. Would it be worse if . . .

This: Your boyfriend’s packed on the pounds big time? He’s eating healthier, but he’s not enthusiastic about putting in the effort to actually lose the weight.

Or . . .

That: You’ve put on some weight in your mid-section, and though your boyfriend hasn’t said anything, you know he’s noticed? The worst part is that it's definitely your problem area, and it's going to be a huge pain to lose.

My husband was a wrestler in highschool and college, so he can drop weight so fast it's crazy. He lost 20lbs in 12 days just so he could look 'ripped' for our beach vacation :-p So, I vote for him!

I agree with GlowingMoon. They're both equally bad. I gained weight, but my boyfriend gained more than I did.

It's so much worse if I put on weight. I'm already about 10 pounds heavier than my fiance NOW (I've lost a lot of weight), so I cannot stand to gain more weight. He, however, can stand to gain some weight and I would not be complaining at all.

I'd rather he gained since he loses it a lot easier. I have a lot to lose anyway so I'd rather not gain anything.

Worse if I put on weight. I guess its just laziness but I'm busy enough without having to put in extra exercise!

Truthfully, to me, it's equally bad. If it's me, the reasons are obvious -- I would feel fatique, have less stamina, and I won't be happy with my appearance. If it's on him, I wouldn't be happy either. Understand that I'm a very visual person, almost like a man. I would find him less arousing if he "packed on the pounds big time." Sorry, truthfully, it would diminish my sex drive. Like I said, I'm very visual. I find a fit body much more stimulating. JMHO.

I can definitely deal with HIS weight gain, but mine - well, that's harder to control and fix, in my experience.

Way worse if I gain weight then him... he could use a few pounds, I could lose a bunch haha

This. Only because I'm way more motivated than him so if I gained weight, I know I would get rid of it. If he did...he would just get bigger and bigger!! And he already has a bit of a beergut. Ack!

He loses weight so quickly it's amazing. He's skinny winny too so he can afford to gain some weight.

I'm sorry but I would rather it be my boyfriend that gains the weight for the both of us! :p Realistically, it won't happen though since he's in the Marines and watches what he eats all the time. :)
