Studies show that people in happy relationships tend to gain more weight than those who are single or are unhappily committed. Unfortunately, there are still people who call out couples for ‘getting fat’, asking how they can put up with each other now that they are no longer attractive. A netizen decided to tackle this issue by talking about having a ‘fat girlfriend‘, gaining the admiration of many.
In a now-viral Facebook post, a certain Anthony Leodones posted a photo of his girlfriend along with a caption sharing how he still loves her despite the fact that she has packed on some pounds.
Entitled, “MATABA NA GIRLFRIEND MO”, Leodones explained what he thinks the problem with our generation is. He said we are too engrossed with the physical attractiveness of a person that we forget to love them for who and what they are. The netizen added that love should mean being able to accept your significant other no matter what he or she becomes.
Netizens, of course, tagged their respective partners in the comments section to make them read the inspiring post. They also praised him for speaking up against fat-shamers and for understanding what real love should be like.
