err, physically?

And then do you feel good if you look better or do you feel pissed off?

My dh's ex is fatter than me! That said, she's also younger by a few years, got bigger boobs (something I've never had, sigh! ) and wears way more make up than me (I only wear make up for work and if going out). I've always been the tall skinny one all my life, she is the short blonde (bottle) one I always thought I wanted to be.
However, she's his ex and he's married to me now so that's her loss. We have done a huge amount of house renovations over the years and I'm perfectly happy in scruffy clothes hanging off a ladder covered in plaster dust and paint, whereas my hubby says the ex would never have done that, mess her nails up too much!
I guess he appreciates the differences, too bad if he didn't as there's no way I'm gonna shrink 6 inches and gain a couple of stone! But the big boobs. ......? I'd love it!

Btw I get on great with his ex, she used to make me cakes!

No, I don't actually have any idea what DH's exes look like (think one of them might have been brunette but not sure) and none of them live in the as e country as us so I have never bumped into them either.

Not really, he's with me now as he finds me attractive. He thought she was attractive too at one point. It's all good.

Not really, she's bigger than me, taller etc, and I think we're the same attractiveness. She is extremely kind and patient though, much more so than I am!

DH's exW is the polar opposite of me - she's tall, slim, blonde, can't cook and smokes like a chimney. I can't imagine how he could have fancied both of us grin

No, it's never really occurred to me.

Mind you, neither of us have seen her for about 19 years.
