This week, Julie gives advice to a lady whose man has put on some weight before their big day and a girl worried about her man’s new fancy panties.
Dear Julie!I got engaged 4 months ago and we have a destination wedding planned for July. My fiance who I love more than anything appears to be “VERY COMFORTABLE” where he is now. To the point that he has put on almost 30 lbs. since he asked to marry him.I don’t want to sound rude as I still love him as much as I did that day, but I want him to look good in our pictures. How do I casually go about hinting times a tickin’ and try to whip him into shape.Any advice?Thanks!Janice
Julie: Okay, Janice, I’m going to give you a bit of advice. If you’re not sure how your partner would react to a statement, or might not react positively, mayyybe you shouldn’t say it. How would you feel if HE told YOU to lose weight? I think you should just be as supportive as possible, maybe help him eat better and find more healthy options, exercise together, etc. Make it something you two can do together and he will appreciate it much more than being told he’s fat.
Hey Julie!Should I be concerned? I got home the other day and there was a package for my husband. I didn’t think anything of it until I looked at the label and it said “Andrew Christian”…I had no clue what it was so I looked it up on the internet and it’s a mens designer underwear website, with a ton of half naked models dancing around in their skivvies.I asked him about it and he said that he has a coworker that told him about it and he wanted something more comfortable. They guy who told him about it is a gay man, which there is nothing wrong with that, but is there something more to it?BTW, he looks super HOT in them, it’s just not what I am used to….Ginger
Julie: What is exactly is the problem? Are you uncomfortable with your guy wearing nice underwear? Is there another concern beneath the surface, maybe worried about his relationship with his co-worker? Embrace the fancy panties!
