It’s hard for me not to cheat on these hot ladies

Dear Readers: Every year I take some time off from my column to work on other creative projects. (Anyone interested in my personal essays and photographs can subscribe to my free newsletter: amydickinson.substack.com.)

I’ll be back next week. Today’s “best” topic from 10 years ago deals with what happens in a relationship when one partner gains — or loses — weight.

Dear Amy: I’ve been dating my girlfriend for three years, and I really love her.

I think she is beautiful too, but in the past year she has started gaining weight.

I have been going to the gym religiously, have lost weight and am back to my former athletic form.

I don’t want to sound shallow, but his weight is changing that somewhat for me.

I’m getting the attention of other (more attractive) women at bars and parties. I’m not the cheating type, but sometimes it can be tough. I’m not a shallow person, but sex is an important aspect of a relationship, and I really don’t want to lose my will. I’m only in my early 20s, so you can imagine how difficult it would be to limit my sex life because of something like this.
