9 Ways to React if Your Boyfriend Points out You’ve Put on Weight

7. Try giving in: “I wonder if I should try dieting…”

If you act a little down about the fact you’ve put on weight, you’ll invite his sympathy, and you may be able to draw out his affection this way. “If she seems sad, I want to tell her, ‘I like you even if you put on weight!’” But if you get too caught up in it and declare, “I’ll start fasting tomorrow!” then it may be difficult to take it back. It’s best just to say, “I wonder if I should lose weight…?” and wait for your boyfriend’s reaction.
