DoctorWhoGirl: Baring my soul
Baring my soul
So, I haven't done the online dating thing in about 13 years. The first time I was 23, a size 8, and really pretty hot. Let's just say things have definitely changed!
This time I'm 37, and I'm carrying, easily, about 50 extra pounds. A month ago, it was 60 extra pounds, but I stopped eating out and I stopped eating sugar (including bread and pasta), and so I started losing weight pretty quickly. I'm pretty convinced that no one wants to date the "fat girl". However, it's hard to take offense to that. I don't identify as the "fat girl", because I've never really been fat before. I didn't grow up fat, so I was never teased about it. This is a new thing. And it feels completely under my control and temporary. However, I can already see, on this site and the other than I am a member of, that it's true: guys just don't wanna date fatties. Even fat guys! (And I like me a good hunk of meat kind of guy.) It's a damn shame.
