Best dating sites for overweight people
But it wasn't total deception, what's the point in catfishing, especially if you're going to meet the bloke down the line?
So I always put that I was "a few extra pounds" in the "body type" section.
It's not the magic of professional lighting or that larger bodies have changed, I think it's just that we're getting more and more used to seeing them; clothed, in underwear and nude. I've always liked a bulkier guy, but now I think I like a bulkier girl too.
Plus, I've made an important decision; if ever a guy tells me I'm fat again, it won't feel like the elephant in the room, next time, I've decided I'm going to take it as a compliment.
But that seems a bad way to start a potential relationship.
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.
I wasn't even sure how we made it past the first date.
I had done all the things you did when you were traditionally built and dating online, before the body positive movement thankfully started kicking in a couple of years ago. Head and shoulders profile pictures only, with rare full-body ones, always taken in careful lighting from considered angles, even better, black and white. Except for people who take their dating profile pics in the bathroom, I've never understood those.
In the latest season of (a US reality show about fashion design), for the first time in the show's history, the designers are working with body-positive models of all sizes.
It's only taken them 13 years, 16 seasons and 229 episodes to get there.
