Mike had lived most of his life overweight. But when he turned 20, he started working out four days a week and eating healthier. Within two years, he had shed more than 80 pounds and gained muscle and confidence. To his surprise, though, when he tried to start dating again, very little changed.
He got more matches on dating apps, but things were harder than ever IRL. As the CEO and lead therapist of Naya Clinicshe frequently sees single men who have lost weight struggle to form new relationships. In fact, many mental health professionals recommend waiting a full year to get back out in the dating world afterward, similar to the wait period when someone gets sober.
Men had transformed their bodies, but they found that it only improved their love lives in shallow, meaningless ways if at all.
Case in point: The of one study revealed that both men and women reported finding potential mates less attractive after finding out they used to be 75 pounds heavier, regardless of the weight loss method, and women were particularly judgmental of men who underwent bariatric surgery. As such, Nabil recommends cognitive behavioral therapy for anyone going through this kind of physical transformation.
