"Hey there, Drew... From a women's perspective and one that has been through self-image issues I have to say this is not an easy task. It is however a great one :-) It is not only being overweight that can cause us to feel ugly. Women and I say…"

Women with body image issues

Hi all,Basically, my fiancee has some body image issues that I'm not sure how to support her with. I was wondering if any of you have experience of this sort of thing and can give any advice?The main problem is she feels like she's fat/ugly. Her mum and grandma have both told her before that she 'needs to lose weight'. In particular her mum has previously called her 'fat' during a drunken argument.I often tell her she's beautiful etc (at least daily), because I think she is and I want her to…See More

Drew replied to J. Exalto's discussion What kind of woman are you interested in?
"Similar to what others have said, I don't think 'traditional' women lack practical skills or ambition, it's just they're more focused on family/home based things rather than paid jobs. I don't think that makes them…"

David F. replied to Drew's discussion Fiancee's father
"With a divorce that fresh, he may still be in pain and the holidays will amp that.  He may be burying his stress into work.  My best suggestion is to point out to your beloved that people are twits and he may just be being silly.…"

Sir replied to Drew's discussion Fiancee's father
"Regarding her feelings:  listen, care, and don't fix her. But if I had an in-law acting strangely, I'd be concerned.  It could mean "No, don't include me, I'm going to be in Malawi herding goats"; "No,…"

Mongoose replied to Drew's discussion Fiancee's father
"You are certainly correct that there's not enough info for the wife to determine intent and extent. But the emotions she is feeling are still valid emotions (of course). Good point about the red flags. There's a possibility that he may…"

Mongoose replied to Drew's discussion Fiancee's father
"I'm sure this truly cut her deeply. It may be better to ask her what you can do to help her feel more supported. Sometimes, just asking how you can help can be supportive in itself. Let her know you are willing to support her. I suspect you are…"

Fiancee's father

Hi all,My fiancée has a bit of an issue with her father and I was hoping to get some advice on how to best support her through it if possible.The back story is as follows. I met her 5 years ago and her parents had divorced 2-3 years before that. Since then she has only had sporadic contact with her father, mostly via Facebook, e-mails etc. She only sees him in person a couple of times a year, if that. This is mainly due to his job which takes him all over the world, often at short notice and to…See More
