I wish this was not true but I myself have always had a fear my body was not good enough! When I was in a relationship I let me self go but within limits. Always not too far to catch up with a few rounds of running around the house or the property and quit the cheese cake and the Ice cream and volia, back in shape! Always with the fear that if he left me or I left him, I had to be in shape and prepare for a descent new catch. Of coarse this is simplistic and there is more at the bottom of the cheese cake but this is the peak of the mountain of WHY GAY MEN TEND NOT TO GET FAT.
We can talk about how superficial this most be but it’s really more realistic for a reason than anything else.. It does goes down deep on a lot of gay men psych’s. We never had until now any support system except our selves. Take any people that have gone through decades and decades of extinction and societal combination see how differently cope with life afterwords.
How about the gay men that wear pants with a Waists of 36-46 in their 40-50’s? That is a different crowd altogether. A lots of these folks have been in a straight marriage or gay relationship for many years. This were people that thought or at least were use to the idea that they will have a companion most of their older life. No need to worry about inches on your waste and it usually done together, eating the same foods. What have been a cause of hurt and shock were those that for what ever reason after a committed relationship end up alone due to illness or death. They find them selves with a good opinion inside of themselves but no one can see that. Gays look at your crotch first and then the waste line.
This is one of the side affects of how we have been living. Gay marriage is not a cure for all but it is for many things for people that want a change of lives and want to commit themselves. But the truth this is how it stands today, the day Im typing this into a computer.
