Today, I told my boyfriend that I didn't know what I was going to do over the Christmas holidays since he was going to be out of the country. He suggested that I work out and do some sit-ups. FML

Celebrate Christmas and new years with friends and family :)

Or maybe she can learn to dump him through the medium of free-style rapping.

Dump him for someone with better manners

I'm curious now. How would you politely suggest your partner to start working out? Is there a polite way at all or is it just one of those things? Some of us might come across this situation in the future so some good feedback could help save some relationships as well as pants sizes.

I'm curious myself to know the "polite" way to suggest this. I don't see anything wrong with the bf's comment or manners. He didn't insult OP in any way or call her names. Are you never allowed to mention anything bordering on weight, health, or body shape with your SO? What a sad lack of intimacy.

Maybe there isn't really a way to say it politely, but you shouldn't say it as abruptly. Like support it with something, for example: it's good for you, that's all I have so I'm just going to put, etc.

Or maybe suggest working out together. That can be fun and healthy for both parties involved.

But he's not in the country, I don't know if that's possible unless they do it over Skype or FaceTime.

24- for all we know he could have. We only have the OPs side of the story.

It would seem girls simply don't want to hear anything related to their weight, no matter how politely you tell them.

I'm pretty sure when someone is saying that they don't know what to do with themselves because they're going to miss you so much, it's never polite to tell them to go get in shape.

But why would it upset them? Would they rather have their SO not say anything and in turn lead to them possibly cheating? Communication is key, if their weight gain is not going well for their SO, they shouldn't have to sit back and watch. Telling them shouldn't be seen as negative, it's a good thing to let your partner know what you think of the situation.

I agree with your second point, but me agreeing won't change anything. You and I both know that lots of people cheat because of weight gain. I'm not saying its right but it happens. If you gained 50 pounds since marriage you may become less attractive in your partners eyes, as they might not find larger men/women attractive. Ending the relationship seems a little overboard (especially a marriage) for something as petty as weight gain, which may be why people cheat instead.

Rule #1: Cardio. Exercise is good for you, and it's great for killing time.

Enslaved, would it be ok to just add liquor I bought from tuscarora or do I have to make my own ?

Llamacod 11

I meant "the store" not tuscarora

Although the alcohol from tuscarora is quite delectable.
