Online dating woman fat
So, to find out if men like fat women, I created two identical online dating profiles of me size 18 and size 10 to find out.
I should point out that I’m an 18 at this point and happy to use the word fat because I find ‘plus size’ patronising and I mentally think of it as phat instead. I set up these profiles on free online dating site OKCupid.
Plus-sized daters should "have unshakeable confidence," advises Rachel Russo, a New York City-based dating, relationship and image coach ( "The overweight single must not be apologetic for his/her weight but should rather embrace it, and realize [that a person's] weight does not have to impact [someone's] self-worth — and the ability to love and be loved." But how does someone gain that confidence in a culture that tells us "thin is in" everywhere you look? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but more importantly, you have to accept yourself for who you are — curves, love handles and all!
We've culled ideas from experts on body image, self-esteem and plus-size fashion and compiled their seven best success strategies for curvy daters. " Holistic health counselor Golda Poretsky agrees, and she advises overweight daters to "make friends with their reflections." How?
And yet, when overweight people enter the dating scene, they're often overwhelmed by feeling unlovable and unattractive to others.
Men make themselves a little taller (by about 1”) and women make themselves a little thinner (by about 8 pounds).Poretsky says that self-acceptance can also come from seeing yourself as part of a beautiful, plus-sized lineage."The 'thin is in' motto of the last century or so is just a blip in the human timeline," she asserts.If I didn't make the state of my body obvious, I would be considered dishonest, and also had the potential to make a man's biggest fear come true by blindsiding him with the real size of my thighs.Before signing up for Ok Cupid, I had never taken a full body shot of myself, not even the obligatory OOTD mirror selfie.
