Re: Men are embarassed by their pot bellies

So silly this thread.. men are handsome just the way they are.. I honestly don't think women think like men do.

Men want something pretty to show off to their friends, their lady's appearance and physique is quite important. They're very visual.

They get a bit jealous if another man turns to look, but they get even more upset if it doesn't happen.

Women usually could not care less if a man has a few physical imperfections and a paunch is really not an issue
In fact, they'll turn them into qualities given half a chance.

Silly

Actually, others call it navel lint. I was going to post a pic one may find googling navel lint, but it is not very aesthetically pleasing.

Quick one to refer to my post in WTF today.. http://www.englishforum.ch/jokes-fun...2-wtf-day.html
Its regarding a guy that collects his belly button fluff, dreaming of making his own pillow..

then again not all people can do this.. if you have an "outie", it won't work, if you have a big " pot belly" with an "innie", you are good to go.

Pro's and con's about pot bellied men aside but screw them..A good tool needs to hang under a roof

Re: Men are embarassed by their pot bellies

I like my belly, but I like being alive even more, so I'm trying to lose it.

My wife is undecided on the subject, however.

Big bellies, unfortunately, are linked to heart disease.

Heart disease, unfortunately, tends to be a pretty slow, life-buggering-upping disease.

I've had enough of my life being buggered up recently, so I'll take less-cuddly over less-alive, I think.

Not sure how successful I'll be, but it's worth a try, surely?

Yeah, but then they'll starve to death as they don't know how to cook.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be

Re: Men are embarassed by their pot bellies

to be fair,,,,,if a chap was THAT embarassed by his gut. Then he would do something about it.

If he does nothing to get rid of it,,,,,,well,,,,,,it can't bother him that much,,,,

Just my thoughts,,,,,,,,,

Re: Men are embarassed by their pot bellies

The great advantage of a pot belly is, of course, that it blocks the vision of my fat thighs. So it's all good.

True, but dying slowly, with a lingering impairment to one's normal life, doesn't really appeal much now it's creeping closer.

But hitting 40, getting married and spending several weeks in bed after an operation don't half focus a chap's mind!

Me? Keep secrets from all my friends on the English Forum? Never!

Nah... priorities change. I've just noticed that my way of life isn't necessarily conducive to longevity, and suddenly that seems to matter more than it used to.
