I'm great for a roll in the hay but not to meet mom. Some prey on the vulnerability of heavy girls, hoping to get laid quickly and get out without any further commitments.
Nobody likes to be insulted, and when it’s super-cruel in this way, it’s utterly heartbreaking. Worse, some men are fetishists and like you in such a way that it’s actually creepy to be around them.
Our bars and restaurants are crowded, and I hate being the big girl trying to squeeze into a booth or through the room. Asking a restaurant hostess to move my party to another table because I literally could not fit into it.
It’s always strange and amusing when a man is shocked to learn that I’m successful in my career, drive a new car, live in a nice home, etc.
As if my being plus sized has somehow earmarked me for failure in life across the board.
They wanted something honest about being my size and dating in Los Angeles.
When they folded, it was returned to me to do as I wish.
And then I suddenly found myself afraid to publish it so it's been in a folder for a few months.
I don't know why, but I finally felt like sharing it.Not just because men (and women) treat you differently or because single women can be competitive, but because I am my own worst enemy.I impose the most rules, restrictions, and justifications in my life.Surely, I must sit at home eating ice cream all the time watching reruns.My bottom line on dating is actually what I imagine it would be for many people: never let anyone convince you that you’re not entitled to self-respect and pride because of an abnormality.One I’ll never forget: “Your shape is not desirable to me.” At least he tried to make it sound like a business transaction.
