Truth about being overweight and dating

02-Aug-2017 01:47

Alright, so maybe it was the way I answered some of the questions: Like, Yeah, I’m over thirty. Then I tried this internet dating site another friend told me about, called Christian Café. Men in drag, magician outfits, a guy who looked like Santa Claus on a bender. Nothing like making the holidays even more depressing than trying to find a guy on a Christian website that guarantees men with no ‘nads. On a lark I emailed him, gave him my real email address. My last boyfriend taught me never to date someone so young I could have been his babysitter. I started to recognize the smart, funny, mature guy I’d met in emails. If he continued to “show up” he might end up being, you know, The One. If you see contradictions in life, you’re not going to get matched.

So, 45 minutes and 100s of questions later, identified my 24-dimensional personality. My roommate said e Harmony rejected a percentage to weed out “crazy people.” I wondered how she knew this. Right before Christmas, Christian Café offered me two free days. The next time he asked me out, he was less guarded, more fun. The third date, I noticed the earring in his ear looked good against his “not so wild hair.” It turned out he liked Monty Python and Emma Thompson. And he let it slip out that he owned a vinyl copy of the Beatles Bootleg Christmas album. They match people based on statistical probability that they’ll think or act alike in any given situation.

He seemed fun, but in our first phone call, he talked about his friends like I already knew them. Finally we got to the open questions, but before he could ask me about the size of my dowry, I asked him why it was so important that his partner be so attractive but he didn’t have his picture posted. It was a long shot of a man sitting on top of a Coleman cooler in a weedy back yard. He stared off in a strange direction, like a Civil War daguerreotype. The others I got matched with looked into the camera but had creepy vacant eyes, like the church had stolen their spontaneity. I figured this kind of matching works for people in the fly-over states who chose their jobs because a college counselor told them they’d like it.

At best, the guy says, “that’s great for you.” And doing the spiritual life alone got really lonely. Then I got an email from some church boy who worked in film. Must have a woman who is in excellent physical shape. Can’t stand a woman who is not extremely attractive.

@yrfatfriend writes about what it's like to be fat in a culture of weight bias and fat shaming, like this piece about traveling by airplane or this one about what it's like to go to the gym as a fat person.
