    Does your wife / GF / fiance give you a hard time when you use supplements?


    If so, how do you counter this?
    and not saying all do, but some. Why is that?

    Yes, The Wife does!!!....I just wait a while and deal with it....She just thinks its a waste to spend money on supplements. I never hear the end of it for at least a few weeks. Hopefully she is out when my package comes!,

    Maybe the T-shirt will help!....That is if she doesn't strangle me with it!

    as long as things are made clear that whatever he is ordering is safe and for some reason actually helps him achieve his goal and is worth ordering, then im game....

    ME: "You like that I'm in shape and all musclely right?"
    HER: "Yes."

    ME: "Well, these things help me get and stay in that shape."
    HER: "OK."

    ME: "As far as habits go, it's pretty harmless. I may be wasting some money but we can afford it and I'd rather waste it on things that are supposed to make me healthier instead of booze and gambling like some of your friend's husbands."
    HER: "True."

    I'm lucky I guess. My gf helps me carry my package home from the Post Office sometimes. She will even use some of the stuff I buy if its safe for her like nootropic or relaxants. And stuff I don't respond to I usually give to her if its for general health.

    Do you guys actually have to waste money on a PO box to hide supplements from your women? Gear I could see, but its funny thinking of tattoopierced all dressed in black and sneaking a jug of creatine into his house.

    Just get really fat and weak, then see which they prefer

    My wife doesn't care for big and muscularly and she doesn't have an issue with the cost. Her issue is she's just worried for my health and wants to make sure i'm okay. When you hear online and supplements all anyone ever hears is steroids.

    My fiance gives me hell about it from time to time, but I just ask her which she would prefer, strong and muscular, or weak and flabby. That typically shuts her up

    That seems to be a common practice. My theory is that there is a personality sub-type who is attracted to tinkering with his/her own body chemistry. These people explore drugs when they are young and then at some point decide to get healthy and then explore supplements in the same way.

    I will say in her defense that when I was taking gear she had a legitimate complaint, so she's still a little nervous when I get supplements, understandably

    Ask her to quit using ALL make-up. Tell her you read they were all made with poison. And even the ones that say "Not tested on animals" were.

    Once she starts to not wear make-up, start buying lots of alcohal and staying drunk. If she asks why are you doing this, tell her I thought you looked better with the make-up, regardless of the hazards. Now I have to drink to make you beautiful.

    When she gets angry and calls you a fat jerk, tell her, " You liked me better on supplements too."

    Fair? And the deal is sealed. She can kill bunnies and kitties for her vanity, and we can have high blood pressure.
