So I don't have a thigh gap, and while I have muscle from sports it's not that noticeable. I'm more of a slender build and while I have lots of curves a guy told me my image was ruined because my thighs didn't touch. I disregarded it because frankly who cares about one guys opinion. But then today this guy told me basically the same exact thing. Should I gain weight to have a thigh gap?

you know, for the most part, whether or not you have a thigh gap is genetic; it depends on the width of your hips or something like that. some people are just destined to never have thigh gaps, and i don't think anyone should feel ashamed one way or the other. and for some people, achieving a thigh gap means letting the muscles in their inner thighs waste away until the body basically eats away the muscle tissue, which is pretty scary. basically, what i'm saying is that the whole 'thigh gap' trend is stupid, and really messes with young girls' self-image and self-worth over something that is at least partially based on genetics. so regardless of what some guys think, do what's best for yourself; be healthy.
and honestly, if not having a thigh gap is a deal breaker with these guys, they're probably not the kind of guys you wanna be with or even listen to.0
