Big women dating
The internet is full of stories about women being horrifically fat-shamed or harassed on dating sites, and yes, those stories need to be told. And at a certain point, I think they can become inadvertent scare tactics, frightening plus-sized women out of the dating pool.
So, I reached out to Marie Southard Ospina, journalist, style blogger, and beloved bad-ass of the body positive movement.
Happn, for example, allows you to match up with people you’ve crossed paths with throughout the day IRL — a quality that some call brilliant and others have been dubbing creepy.
As a non-single, fat, polyamorous woman, I can't tell you how often I've been questioned about my confidence, self-worth, who I am, and why I'm into what I'm into.
If literally the only reason you are interested in me is because I'm fat, you might want to take a step back and get to know a bit about me first. When you tell me I'm not, what you are really saying is that despite my body size, I'm not all those horrible things you tend to associate with fatness.
I am done dating dozens of d**kheads who’d come back to the proverbial well to drink from the pails-of-fun spilling from all over me but would want nothing to do with me after a fun-night-ride where his d**k-flexion kinda failed the test!
But most of all, I think you haven’t ever been told ‘why’ to date a fat girl!
