Boyfriend gained weight and I don't like it
November 13, 2012 12:42 PM Subscribe
My boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over a year. All things considered, I'm quite happy with him. Problem is, he's gained a ton of weight, more than 50lbs since we've been together. He doesn't look like the person I started dating, and it really upsets me. In his current state I don't find him attractive and I'm really at a loss for what to do. Any advice?

I work hard to keep in shape and he just keeps getting bigger and rounder. He acknowledges that his weight is a problem and states he would like to do something about it...but as far as I can tell he isn't actively doing anything. He just keeps saying he is stressed or busy (he's trying to start a business) and gets depressed whenever I bring the subject up.
