I'm sorry to bug you all with my relationship troubles, I just didn't know where else to go, and I figured the people here would understand some very important aspects of our relationship.
I have been dating my boyfriend for 2 years. We are both devout Catholics, and meet up for Mass every week. He is very respectful, and we had a very good relationship from the beginning. However, lately we have been having constant arguements, either about my weight, or how I don't feel appreciated by him.
Last night, we were the closest we've ever been to breaking up, and he told me it was because he doesn't feel any "spark". We have been pretty good not to give in to temptation, I must say, so I asked if he had a problem holding back in that way as much as we do. He told me that wasn't the issue, and that as much as it makes him said like a jerk, he's just very superficial, and wants a gorgeous wife. He said he thinks he would appreciate me more, and start being a sweeter, more considerate boyfriend, if I work out more. When I asked him about eventually having kids, he said he doesn't think that would be that much of an issue for him, it was just now because I didn't have any real reason for not being really thin. I'm not unattractive, I've been told many times that I have a very pretty face, and according to Wii fit, I am towards the upper-level, but still within the "Healthy" range :thumbsup: . I just feel like if my weight is what's keeping us together, or breaking us up, he doesn't care about me like he should. But on the other hand, isn't he just being honest...
I guess my question is this: I have many flaws, and he puts up with them, so should I put up with his, and just work harder to become thinner?
or Is it wrong that I think HE should be working on his superficiality?
Does anyone know of any prayer I can give him to ask God to help him get over this?
Thank you! :)
