And, quite frankly, ignoring the fact that dating in New York City is probably what Hell looks like and that I seem to only date emotionally unavailable men, I’ve never really had a problem with the fact that I date thin guys.
Sure, their stomachs are always flatter than mine, but I find that, the skinnier the guy, the more okay they are with dating a girl that’s bigger (ultimate douchebags obviously excluded from this discussion).
I was scrolling through my Facebook today and came across this Facebook post: Notice the caption of the post, which includes a direct quote from Whitney Thore, the plus-sized star and #Fat Acceptance advocate of TLC’s new reality show.
In response to the news that she just started dating someone, Whitney said “He’s hot and I’m heavy.” And so the lucky guy?
The only reason I’m asking this question is because I’ve noticed an unsettling trend among the #Fat Acceptance crowd (mostly women), as well as plus-sized models (mostly women): they seem to consistently date thin men.
And to prove that, here are a few examples I’ve come across by chance: 1) Tess Holliday: The irony with plus-sized model Tess Holliday is epitomized by her past statements on beauty and looks.
The obvious solution is to date outside of my prescribed “type,” but I’m the kind of person who doesn’t feel the need to change her habits simply to make things more convenient.
Maybe that’s immature, and maybe I’m torturing myself a little bit, but I’m also lazy and deeply dislike change, so it appears I’ve reached a personal impasse.
“What really surprised us was just how substantial this difference was between men and women,” says David Frederick, assistant professor in health psychology at Chapman University and a co-author of the study.
We all deserve a place.” It is interesting that she wants to “challenge society’s perception of ‘beauty'”, yet is engaged to a stereotypically-attractive thin white male: Yeah, Tess, way to “challenge society’s perceptions of beauty”.
What began as a #Fat Acceptance movement to embrace all body sizes, seems to have morphed into a ploy to convince thin, fit, stereotypically-attractive men to date obese women who apparently think “big is so beautiful” that they refuse to date other gluttons.
