Why is OP allowed to complain that she is lifting heavier weights than her bf?.. She thinks a man should be stronger than a woman?.. Isn't that considered sexist nowadays?.. If I said that a man should be stronger than a wom-- Oh Noes!!.. Feminists are trying to kill me!!!
There isn't anything wrong with skinny guys, but unless you're lying about your height and weight, you're very much underweight, which IS a problem. It's not healthy, and it's certainly not nice to look at. I used to be underweight. I'm surprised you don't have doctors jumping down your throat at every given moment. Strangers in the store used to stop me in the store to give me a talks about gaining weight (SO AWKWARD!) idk. Maybe it's just because I was a girl and people automatically assume that any girl who is too skinny has an eating disorder. But still.... gain some weight.
Oh, and for the record.. I am: 1.80m, 82kg (or 6foot, 180.4pounds).. And I just turned 16 last week.. Oh, and I joined a gym this term.. :) Not lifting the big weights at the moment.. So if any girls see me in there with single hand weights, don't assume I'm a bitchy little emo kid, 'cause I'm not.. The black t-shirt, black footy shorts and black vollies can be misleading, though.. So my apologies for the outfit and exercise program.. XD
So? Does that mean he's less of a man? It's just weights. it's not like he's going to lose his balls and you're going to gain them.
Exactly, it really doesn't matter if he isn't super strong, and I also thought sensitivity was good. I probably can lift heavier than my boyfriend, or close to it, hell I can lift my boyfriend who is 2 years older. If it's that much of a problem for you, then leave. I don't see an issue with it but if you think it's fml worthy then do something about it
It's the 21st century, and you're in Norway, which is one of the most socially advanced countries in the world. Certainly, it's also technologically advanced. We've outgrown the need for physical strength now. I'm a man, and I'm weak. Doesn't matter, I can solve any problem by talking at it.
I agree that many problems can be solved by using your mind and wits. Alot of problems still require you have a decent physique, even if its not direct violence (lifting heavy things, avoid fighting by being threatening etc...). Needless to say, its important to have both.
Really? Your boyfriend needs to shape up. Well it depends on how much weight you're lifting. If you're benching like 120 Pounds, yes your boyfriend definently needs to shape up, BIG TIME. if you're benching like 230 pounds, ... Wow. So it depends are you like most Girls or a Lumberjack?
so? he'll get to your weight eventually :/ besides, it just means when y'all get married YOU can carry HIM across the threshhold!!
