I really don’t know much about Askmen.com, so perhaps this article isn’t a good representation of what they are all about, but if it is…
Some maroon wrote: “6 Ways To Tell Your Girl to Lose Some Weight” AND he is apparently the “Relationship Consultant.”
I don’t even know where to start.
Let’s ignore the obvious fact that the dudes complaining about their women gaining weight probably aren’t exactly prize winners themselves. And also, let’s ignore that these dudes are just feeding into the insanity that is leading more and more women to eating disorders.
That’s a lot to ignore.
Instead, let’s focus on the advice itself.
In his first bit of advice, he says that you should tell your woman that you don’t like the way her favourite outfit fits her anymore. Subtle, right? He finishes that nugget up with “… suggest a looser knit and watch her skip the nachos with cheese forever.”
Has this dude even met a woman before?
He also recommends buying an outfit for her that is obviously too small, and claiming that the salesperson said it was for a “smaller woman” so you figured it would fit her.
Man… come on.
Finally he closes with the idea of telling her “Let’s help each other lose a couple of pounds.” Besides being the plot of a like 4 different episodes of “The King of Queens,” that comment is going to elicit a reply of “You think I need to lose a few pounds?” and get you a much deserved knee in the speed bag.
But, that’s just my opinion. I’m no Relationship Consultant.
