Poll: Half of Men Would Dump a Woman Who Gained Weight

Gotta love insight into the male mind.  I’m disturbed by the results, but should I really be that surprised?  A new survey conducted by Askmen.com and Cosmopolitan.com found men are way too concerned with their partner’s weight and body.

Of 70,000 men surveyed, nearly 50% said they would leave a partner who gained weight.  Only 20% of women would leave their hefty partner, according to the poll. 

Ok…I get it.  If I sit on the couch all day eating chips and bon bons, watching Family Guy in my own filth and end up putting on 30 pounds or more, fine– there are some serious issues with our relationship.  Dump me.  But, what if my metabolism decides to slow or I end up on a medication that makes me balloon up?  Are you going to ditch me, then? Huh?

To make things worse, two-thirds of men questioned had fantasized about their partner’s friends.  Um, what?!  Ok, I know I have some hot friends, but come on!  Don’t make me insecure when we all hang out together.

This survey definitely makes some men look like dawgs…But, hold up.  Women aren’t free and clear either.  The poll found women have their faults, too.

As I save up to buy a Louis Vuitton, apparently the poll reveals women are materialistic.  43 percent of women polled said a beautiful home is the ultimate status symbol, whereas men selected “family” (I guess if they have a thin family?).

What is this world coming to?  Men want thin, hot women and women want big, hot houses.  Maybe it’s time we all get our priorities straight.
