I'm in a long term relationship and I've been a vegetarian for year's now, and he used to say that he liked that I was healthy, but now he seems to hate the fact that I don't eat meat and that I'm very conscious of what I put in my body.
I will mention to him to eat a little healthier at times, and I'll tell him to work out and that it would help him out because he's pretty young (20) and he already has a big stomach. Now I don't care about that, I love him the way he is, but his parents are very unhealthy and his mother has a lot of health problems, and I'm just worried about him sometimes.
See his parents eat a lot of meat, and just a lot of boxed, processed foods, whereas I eat a lot of vegetables, good fat's, no processed or boxed foods, so when I go to his house there isn't really anything there I can eat which bothers him and he would complain that we can't go out to a nice dinner because I can't eat that many things on the menu because I'm a vegetarian.
So I'm wondering, have any of you ever dealt with a SO that would tell you how to eat, or would get irritated that you were healthy/unhealthy? How did you deal with it?
