Being overweight and online dating
Which was ridiculous, because in the whole of history, nobody has ever successfully argued someone into getting back together with them.
It was while I was asking him why, and what happened, and how come, that he told me I was fat. He wasn't wrong, and for a change he wasn't lying, he was just mean and tactless and weirdly only waking up to the fact three months later.
I feel like I'd just be someone's fetish, or marginalised, and that's not what I'm looking for either.
Fortunately, fast forward a few years and something remarkable is happening.
You could lie outright, or smudge the truth a bit, to give someone the chance to get to know you first, and decide for themselves whether they're OK with a little extra padding.
Or you could go in headfirst and write "Attention all shoppers, I am overweight" in the first line of your profile.
And something utterly mad is happening, I'm starting to think that they're beautiful, and I hope I'm not the only one.An understatement at the time, maybe, but online personal ads are like property ads, everyone knows what "renovator's dream", "charming" or "quaint" really mean.I was just an insecure girl standing in front of a surprisingly hot guy, asking him to like me, so even though I knew I was out of my league and he was a tonsil, when he ended it I did that thing where you embarrassingly try to argue the person out of it, instead of exiting gracefully.Woo Plus is a British online dating site that specialises in big beautiful women, and big handsome men, and their admirers.I get what they're doing, but I can't bring myself to believe dating apps like this are the solution.
