Do you think I’ve put on weight?
At some point in every man’s life comes the inevitable question from his woman: Do you think I’ve put on weight?
(Reminds me of that old joke: Does this dress make me look fat? No, your fat makes you look fat)
The answer to this has to be carefully considered.
A comparable question would be: you and your woman are strolling through town. Your woman glances at a passing young (not unattractive) woman and asks you extremely casually,
“Do you think she’s pretty?”
A “Yes” will usually result in a very frosty, tense and silent walk home.
Say “No” and your woman will automatically assume you’re lying. The clued up blokes out there will aim for a response somewhere in the middle.
Why do women do this to us? I’ve never asked my woman if she thinks that passing guy is good-looking. I don’t really care if she thinks he’s hot, that’s a conversation she’ll have with her girlfriends, not with me.
Anyway, I digress.
On the weight issue:
What women fail to realize is, unless you’ve put on so much weight that you need help to get out of the bath, we DONT CARE!
Women spend far too long obsessing about this issue, but I suspect they’re not doing it for our benefit.
After all, we’ve seen you first thing in the morning, make up streaked down your face from a heavy session with the girls the night before, a line of drool on the pillow.
We still love you.
And we’ve held your hair back when you’ve been sick after too many JD’s & Cokes.
I suspect they’re more concerned how they measure up to other women.
Is she taller, slimmer, more shapely than me? Bitch!
Men are far simpler creatures……
