Gut CheckPosted: April 27, 2012
In the new movie “The 5 Year Engagement,” Universal Studios put Jason Segel on a diet and made him lose 35 pounds. The studio did not believe audiences would believe his tubby ass could really be coupled with skinny Emily Blunt (who has a GREAT ASS btw). This has to be the most hilarious thing I’ve read in a long time and just goes to show how out of touch Hollywood is with reality. Of course this is absolutely preposterous. Besides, you just KNOW that Jason has the personality that makes girls giggle in delight. He’s funny and he’s easy going. That totally trumps his gut. Well, when I was dating the Sicilian girl and then when I had the gf in NO, I was tad overweight. Now, I wasn’t OBESE, but I was chunky. Hell, it’s only been in the last few months that I’ve dropped about 10 pounds. I definitely look thinner. So-So mentioned how I look slimmer and a bit more attractive then when she first met me.
But guess what…
Do you REALLY think my being chubby affected the ex’s attraction to me? NOPE!!! Absolutely not. Guys typically put too much emphasis on their shell and not enough on what really matters to most women – their SUBSTANCE. What makes you tick, what drives you, what you are passionate about, WHO you are. No point in being a pretty boy with a 6 pack if your core is muddled and a mess. That’s tingle kryptonite.
Remember MEN are the ones who judge mostly based on looks, women judge us by our character and being able to stand:
A – on our own
B – up to her.
So don’t worry about your gut more then you worry about your character/masculinity. If you need to do that, please see the Dude Manrod videos.
