  • The grass is never greener and will always wilt over time. I think that is very shallow and he does not deserve to be with a REAL WOMAN with REAL FEELINGS. The better looking woman will get old with wrinkles too, and he will move on again. A man like that is not worth any amount of time or emotion spent on him.

  • I'm not saying it's right..but I know that over time men get frustrated and lose interest when they walk in the door to a wife who is in sweats or some equivalent, no makeup, hair maybe pulled back in a scrunchy. Women say "I have kids to take care of, I'm busy, I'm,,,," All they are really saying is everything else is more important than taking 10 mins to look nice for him (you know like you spent hours doing before a date with him). We as women have to take responsibility for inviting men to disengage and push away.

  • If you are truely in love with a person it won't matter how they look. You don't fall in love with someone because they are hot (granted that is a factor when you first meet), but you fall in love with them as a person. That is why there are so many divorces in the world today because people mistake lust for love and realize they hate the person they married...idiots!!

  • That he is a shallow pig...and I hope one day he is fat and bald and gets left by his barbie girlfriend and he gets a taste of his own medicine.

  • Unless he is just truly shallow, in which case he would just be an asshole, it might not be her looks he fell out of love with. Sometimes it's vitality, or energy, or lack of desire to keep herself up. I can't imagine falling out of love with my SO because he got balder-er (lol) or picked up weight. I'd love him no matter what. BUT, if he turned into a lazy ass couch potato and never wanted to do anything and needed a haircut and turned all-out sloppy, we'd have to have a serious talk! UUGGHH, what a turn off. I think it's important to try to be healthy, happy and at least look decent. And I struggle with my weight all the time, but I would never just "let myself go". Don't kill me, I'm just being honest!
