Dating plus site size
I've been in a relationship with my current partner for over four years.
But if anything ever happened, I'd want to be with another someone who actually loves my body. This isn't to be confused with "someone who loves me for my body," and only that.
This means that fat people grow up thinking their bodies are wrong, broken, ugly, and totally-not-sexy, while those attracted to fat bodies (regardless of their own body type) grow up thinking they are broken for being attracted to them.
It was one of those perfect days when autumn is coming but summer is still holding on, so the weather was perfect.
Size discrimination runs rampant, and it affects everything from healthcare to employment to media to the size of seats on public transportation to the self esteem of individuals.
That it would also affect dating doesn't seem unreasonable.
If we don't want to be treated differently, why do we have to use different terms, or different dating sites? I personally don't think that the folks at Woo Plus believe "falling in love with someone above a size 18 [is] unusual." If that were the case, they'd be setting themselves up for failure.
But I do think that much of the rest of the world does.
I think the reason I — and many fat women I know — have encountered a plethora of dudes ashamed of admitting their attraction to us is because they don't believe they are allowed to do so without being ridiculed.
