Reasons Why πŸ€” You Tend to Gain Weight βš–οΈ when You Have a Boyfriend πŸ’ ...


Let me preface this with a few disclaimers: yes, I know that not everyone gains weight when they're in a relationship, but it does happen to a great many people; also, in spite of the title, you can be a boy, a girl, or someone who falls somewhere in between who is in a relationship with a boy, a girl, or someone who falls somewhere in between. The point is, some people notice that they tend to gain more weight when they're in a relationship. It might seem weird, but it actually makes a lot of sense. It's not because you stop caring, it's not because you've β€œlanded” your partner and don't feel the need to β€œput forth effort,” and it's definitely not because you're lazy.
