Interested In Dating Advice - 9/2021
longtime poster here, but choosing to stay anon so I don't get easily identified.
about me: graduated from college in May, 2021. Analyst.
I am about 3 months into dating a wonderful girl. She's really caring, we share similar values, and she is smart (Senior at Columbia). She has a great face, and we have really bonded over 20ish dates.
The issue lies in the fact that she used to be much skinnier. Again, a beautiful face. But she herself told me that she has put on 40ish pounds since the beginning of the pandemic. And although she is definitely attractive, she is somehwat heavyset.
In the nicest, most respectful way possible, how should I discuss her weight, if at all? Every other aspect of the relationship is going swimmingly, but I would consider myself to be more attractive than her (based on past partners). I like her quite a bit, but I am hesitant to date someone long-term who struggles with her weight like this
