Do these jeans make me look fat?
Last night before showering, I was checking myself out in the mirror. Although I am okay with my weight, I can never lose a bit of belly I have. 5 pounds would be nice. My wife noticed what I was doing and asked me if there was anything I'd change about her. Now, for the last year, she has been commenting on how she's gained some weight she'd like to lose (maybe 10 pounds). I always say I don't notice and think she's perfect the way she is. But she keeps asking me if I can notice her weight gain. Last night, I agreed with her own opinion. She got really upset. As much as I profess my love and attraction to her, she spent the rest of the night sulking. It seems that regardless of me affirming my devotion to her, any little reason to question my feelings toward her can derail our relationship. To add one more incident, she gets upset if we are watching a prime-time sitcom and I see a woman in lingerie on it. I feel she is too sensitive, and I feel I have to work very hard to support her fragile self-image. Comments?
