Do you see this as a problem, because you think it's a problem or because she teased you? Don't try shaping up to some ideal and then taking on blame and guilt if you don't match up to what you want. She should accept you as you are.

If you are underweight but your chest is overdeveloped, that might just be your physique and there may not be anything that can significantly alter it. I would think any kind of flexing program to build the chest muscles might be worthwhile, but this isn't my area of expertise so I'll defer to others.

That's never a good reaction. Did she realize how insensitive she was? Did she realize how difficult this was for you? Has she apologized?

Working out will be good exercise for the mind as well as the body, just don't overdo it because you feel you have to match up to a certain level.

Don't go buying one of those ridiculously expensive exercise machines that you'll spend your next three lifetimes paying off. That would be like cracking a walnut with a sledgehammer. :)

Well, I can't see how cracking walnuts with a sledgehammer will help with your "problem". Why don't you just tell her that you didn't like it when she joked around and teased you, and that it hurt your feelings? And don't think that doing that is "wussy" or "gay". If she's a good girlfriend, she'll apologize and that will be that. Besides (correct me if I'm wrong here, ladies), most girls want their guy to have at least a little sensitivity. Just talk to her.

You don't need correcting, that's absolutely right. :) It's good for a guy to show their feelings. She may not have even realised it was an insensitive comment to make - among the girls I know, we quite happily tease each other about our tits, for whatever reason, and it's not really a big deal for us, like we won't take what they're saying seriously. She should know you were hurt by it though, so definitely do talk to her about it if you haven't already, and I hope it goes well for you! :)

Hmm. Kind of sounds like what we guys do with our penises.
