So, every girl should have at least one totally platonic guy friend. The guy who will be totally honest with her and tell her when she’s being nutso, or who will give her the straight-up info on what guys really think.
I’ve got one of those, and in general, he’s right about almost everything (I know he’s reading this, so I don’t want to flatter him TOO much)–but every once in a while, he can say something pretty dumb.
The other week, we were on the phone, and I told him I was going to workout. He commented that I’d been working out a lot, and I said that I’d been doing it because I need to lose around three or four pounds to fit into a dress for a party coming up. I’d bought the dress online and it’s just a tiny bit too small. (We’ve all been there, right?!)
His reply? “Well, I wouldn’t lose weight if I were you. If your boyfriend thinks you’re attractive the way you are (and I’m guessing he does!) then he might not be attracted to you anymore if you lose weight.”
WTF?! Really, dude? Three pounds and my guy is gonna say “Sayonara?!” I don’t think so. I know his intentions were sweet, and I have to say it was nice to hear a dude tell me NOT to try to lose weight, but um . . . kind of totally out there and wrong!
Have you ever had a guy say anything weird about your weight? What was it? Have guys noticed when you’ve tried to lose weight? Tell me everything in the comments!
