Let me first say I love my boyfriend. We’ve been together for 3 years and he’s smart, has a great job, makes me laugh and is a great catch, BUT he’s gained weight in the past 3 years. Lots of it. He hasn’t always been like this. When we first started dating, he was in great shape, was very active, but now he doesn’t seem interested in being in shape at all. All he wants to do is sit on the couch and watch TV. His personality hasn’t changed, and he’s not depressed, he just wants to relax and unwind after a long day, which I understand to a degree. Our sex life is ok, but the laziness and weight gain are huge turn off’s.
I get up and go to the gym almost everyday and try to encourage him to come with me, either before work or after, but he just won’t. I don’t need him to be the same fit guy he was before, but I want him to make an effort and care. I’m also concerned if he stays on this path his health will become an issue in the future. I love him, but I find my eye is starting to wander. What can I do to get my fit and active boyfriend back? Feeling superficial in Waterloo
