It would help if you post the model image. But by the sounds of it he is right. For some reason girls seem ot have very different views on fat then men do. I'm not trying to be offencive or anything. But it's like some girl could say "Oh! She is fat she you can't see her bones." and a I will say "Uh, are you sure. She look normal too me.". But it could just be the all the girls that I've ever met that think like that.
Can you love me more?
