Online dating big people

My weight has fluctuated dramatically throughout my life – I was a fat child, a thin teenager, a chubby sixth former, a skinny student and so on, up and down through my adult life.

Something happened via email yesterday morning that made me sort of snap! Total unconditional love and everyone should be loved as well as I have been loved. Could we maybe meet first before you start telling me all about your junk. How about we shake hands once or twice before we start talking about “bumping uglies.” I could go on and on. But, like I said, 95% of my experiences have been great.

Tinder reported 50 million users with 12 million users joining every day as of 2014, and Ok Cupid reported having 12 million users in 2014.

Well, I never really thought I would write this blog. I decided to cool down and wait 24 hours before I blurted it all out here. So, for starters, I have had two of the most amazing men in my life and two wonderful long term relationships in my life; I count myself super grateful and blessed.

*** I was on a date recently and a woman sat down at the next table, catty-corner to me. But what’s most visible about me, what defines me before I even open my mouth, is my size.

I was embarrassed and annoyed, already contemplating how I was going to get out at the end. I’ve dieted my whole life and can’t remember a time when I wasn’t concerned about my weight.
