Stretchmarks are not pretty but if it's how the OP described then...you need some new friends JJ All The Way
I need new friends ..... want to be my new friend?
It's not as simple as okay or ney.
It's a bit odd that you don't question the fact that your friend apparently chose his significant other because she was hot, but seem to be shocked that he dropped her because of the stretch marks.
I can't see any big difference between starting a relationship based on appearance and ending a relationship based on the same criterion. Neither is inherently wrong: as long as people are honest about their motives and intentions, they are free to base their mating behaviour on whatever criterion they see fit. It's not surprising that appearance plays a pretty big role in that, after all, we're biologically programmed to be attracted to people who we think look hot.
That said, it's probably not a very good thing to be only interested in how hot your partner looks, it makes for kind of shallow (and probably short) relationships. But that applies just as much to starting as to finishing a relationship. If your friend chose his GF in the first place because he liked her personality, he might not have been so quick to ditch her when he noticed the stretchmarks.
Never thought of it like that, good point.
He was interested in her initially because she is a beautiful girl and has a pretty nice personality. I think her body scars were alot because she used to be fat and lost alot of weight. For him, he was disappointed that her body did not match her face......

Eh, either way, pretty superficial.

Well, if the stretch marks came with like four or five kids, I can kind of understand.
Nope, weight loss. I think his reason for breaking up with her besides that he was disappointed in her body compared to her face was that it showed that she is not conscious about her body and health. I think thats kind of BS reasoning.......
and it sucks cuz i think she is so cute but i cant date her because she is his "ex"
what kind of "best friend" is it that you have there?
Haha we were friends since we were kids, its those kind of relationships based on time rather than fundamental similarities. haha but we are close, I am like his consciousness cuz he has none lol. and he makes a good wing man hahaha
