Dating an overweight woman
Dating isn’t easy for anyone, but I maintain that it’s harder if you’re fat.It’s like, “How dare you be fat and expect the love and affection of another human being?
I’d been running my own plus size blog, Big Curvy Love, for years so it was a no brainer to chronicle the 50 dates. Yes, in my mind this was a real-life-romantic comedy in the making and I was for sure was going to have a legit ‘meet cute’ just like in the movies. How about a silver fox, toy boy, divorcee, single dad, white collar, blue collar, different cultures, ethnicity and religions.I persuaded myself through cliches, “It’s a numbers game. Every lid has a teapot.” And with that 50 Fat Dates was born.Also, because plus size dating is a taboo, because so many big girls (including me) have been told they’re ‘too fat to date,’ because I wanted to find out what guys really think about dating plus size women and because I needed to put myself out there! Although based on the response I’m sure that would have been possible. I tried online dating, meetups, introductions, dating events, big girl night clubs, conferences, weddings, and networking mixers.Although, (spoiler alert) one of the 50 Fat Dates actually did come knocking on my door.He was a plumber sent by the landlord to fix the toilet and we ended up on a date (he was #17).
I was catfished, stood up, and lied to multiple times. One guy had a girlfriend and was looking for someone to ‘join the relationship’ (yes a threesome) another had a girlfriend, (I only found out when she tracked me down and sent me an e-mail with photographic evidence warning me of his ‘ways’ and a thinly veiled warning of b*tch get away from my man).
