k.. My girlfriend and I have known each other for about 10 months. Been dating 8 of those 10 months - everything is great. BUT..... She is 5'6" tall, about 125 pounds. Fit, lean, overall nice looking body. However, every now and again, I hear "God I'm fat!" and it just pisses me off! Why? I'm 6'2" tall and I weight about 240 pounds. You wanna see some fat?? I'll show ya some lol When I make a comment towards myself about 'fat' (normally a joke) she's all up in arms, jumping my ass about 'no your not, blah, blah.' However, when she says something towards herself about being 'fat' and I get all pissy with her, saying she's basically full of shit, it's war! I realize, everyone has their own issues with 'fat' no matter their height, weight, etc. However, my defense is, is if she looks at herself, being what height/weight she is, what does she really think of me??? I mean, I'm no pre-subway "Jared" or anything but I'm not fit and lean either. I got a tummy.. I got me some man-boobs, whatever.. So I try and tell her - in my own nice way - do you realize that when you say negative things about yourself, especially your weight, when you don't have a single roll or stretch mark on your body - how it makes me feel? She says, 'well when I say it, it's true - when you say it, it isn't.' wtf.. If she thinks SHE'S fat, jesus, I must be absolutely obese! How else am I to address the situation??
