3. Your Weight

How many times have you heard someone say they're fat when they're anything but?

My ex would jokingly call me β€œFatto” when I was 125 pounds.

I ignored it, but this is the sort of comment that can lead women to lose weight in unhealthy ways because they think their boyfriend wants them to.

This is an extreme example, but I'm sure we all know people who have tried to lose weight or complained about their bodies not because there was actually anything wrong but because they thought they had to have a certain body type to be attractive.

Men aren't as picky about our bodies as we are, but even if they were, you shouldn't make any changes like this simply to keep (or get!) a man.

Do it because you want to, if you want to.

I had an ex who hated my nail art hobby until I completely lost interest in it and I became so bored and just didn't do anything else as a result It sure went downhill from there. I'm glad I'm not with him anymore. Never ever change yourself for a man, he should love you for who you are and what you love to do. And it should be mutual.

I frankly don't understand women who give in too easily. I've known a couple of them who would say something like: I don't wear makeup because he wants me not to. I've been with a control freak, too. He tried to make me give up things I really enjoyed doing and dedicate my free time to him and his needs.needless to say, when I met my husband I instantly understood he was the one, cause he gives me total freedom to do what I want to do and be who I wanna be. At the same time I admit it's our fault, too- many of us would rather become someone else not to be alone, and that's the issue to fight against
