Being overweight and online dating
I think I have a lot going for me otherwise: two graduate degrees, a great sense of humor, and a job that I am successful at.I’m 39 but people usually think I’m several years younger. –Liz Very well then, let’s take a look at your observation – that men, in general, tend to be interested in thinner women, and that your dating life, in general, has been impacted by these additional 15 pounds.I don’t feel I have been overly picky, but lately I can’t even seem to attract Joe Average.The men whom I do end up dating are highly critical of my body, even when their own looks are nothing to write home about.I’m not fat by any means, but it seems that it wouldn’t matter whether I weighed 150 pounds or 200, the result would still the same. I wouldn’t (and couldn’t) dispute your version of events.
I do my best to follow all of your advice, and as a result think I make a good date.So you don’t call the person for a second date, because they probably made a mistake and are dreading calling you. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: All of those points are lies.Or they haven’t called in about a week and you’re sure they’re not interested because you were too fat and too plain. Everyone can be beautiful, desirable, and especially adequate.My question is to do about weight, which I know you have written about before.
A couple of years ago I gained 17 pounds due to a medical condition that altered my metabolism.
Take a look around at these ballpark statistics that I stored in the back of my brain over the years: 50 million women in the U. Does this seem like an atmosphere where it’s impossible for a smart, funny, pretty woman to find a man who appreciates her? So let me reassure you that, even if you haven’t found him yet, there is a man who will be thrilled with you – the extra 15 lbs and all.
