Man refuses to propose to his girlfriend until she loses weight

A few days ago, a woman wrote on Reddit looking for advice and titled the now-deleted post, ‘Am I wrong to be offended he’s using getting fit as a condition if proposing?’

The 25-year-old has been with her boyfriend for five years and they now share a home together. So in preparation for the future, she brought up ‘The Talk’ with her other half. And rightly so.

Yet when she initiated a conversation on marriage and children, her boyfriend showed his true colours.

She wrote, “He replied that while yes, he wants both those things with me, he doesn’t see himself proposing until I’ve become more fit.”

Erm, excuse me?

She continued: “My weight is something I’ve struggled with over the years since I was pretty much a teenager. I’m now at more of a ‘normal’ weight, although a bit bigger than when we first started dating.”

And within a matter of minutes, women from far and wide had her back (422 to be precise).

One took to Reddit to write: “Get fit because it’s healthy. Get fit if it makes you feel better. Get fit if you want to get fit. Don’t get fit because your SO is making it a condition of marriage.”

While another got straight to the point, “Work on your fitness so you can run away from him…”

Let’s hope she took the advice on board.
