  • Maybe you start to feel more comfortable with the person, you're not too worried about your weight anymore?Plus dinner dates can add up! I know gained a few pounds after SO and I had been together awhile. Now I'm paying for it!

  • Have you ever noticed that when a woman is pregnant her husband gains weight with her? I don't know if it's all men, probably not but the majority of guys I know (including my SO) gained weight right along! Probably because when the woman is craving something, their husband ends up eating with her. JMO.

  • Its just slowing down and comfort weight. When I was single I would wake up every morning go to work come home change and be on the run again. I always found something to do riding in the woods are getting all decked out to go gamble in AC, shopping, running around with my friends and there kids I wouldn't get in till @10 every night. Then it was laundry and what ever else. I never sat still. The second I started dating someone and would have more movie nights then girls night I would always gain 10lbs.

  • the only time I have ever gained any weight while I have been with my husband is while I was pregnant and I have been with him for almost 10 years. so it isn't true for every one.

  • I think it's because so much of early dating revolves around food. Either you're going out to eat on dates or you're cooking up all of your beef, fat and cream laden recipes hoping to impress him with your culinary prowess! lol At least, that's my excuse.
