I'll tell you a secret!
**BUT my disclaimer is that I don't know how this would/will work on a BP female with body issues (not that they are any different but I know that they maybe he harder on themselves).**
When my husband comes up to me and hugs me and tells me how beautiful I am (AND HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART) out of the blue, my heart soars. The fat skeptic in me wonders what he wants (lol) but the woman in me that wants to be desired by my husband gets a need met at that moment that can't compare to many others.
You can take that and figure out how it will fit into your life, but honestly - EVERY WOMAN wants her man to fight for her, to convince her day in and day out how much they are loved.
Thanks again. When I do those type of things, sometimes it is accepted & sometimes not. I can always tell when she is enjoying getting a hug (she hugs back) or when she is just letting me hug her (she pats my back). I know every woman has their own little insecurities about the way they look, but hers going way beyond that is what makes me wonder. She won't even go to the grocery store or Wal-Mart by herself because she is afraid people are staring at her. I have to go everywhere with her because she does not want to go by herself. What is a little strange about it is that it has to be me that takes her. She won't go with her friend, she won't take her mother with her, it has to be me (I guess that's a compliment). Like I said, it's not just the weight issues, it is just total insecurities about seemingly everything.
How so? Please elaborate some for me if you don't care.
