I find this video fascinating. I think anyone who has been overweight has felt this way but at the same time I believe the character that is the “fat girl” is overly defensive. Can you imagine being on a date and someone confronting you like she does Louie? This would be my last date with this person that’s for sure.
As for myself, I had a lot of good guy friends growing up and those guy friends might have liked me because I was fun, or had a great personality or whatever, but none of them ever liked me enough to ask me out. Do I think it was because I was fat …? Absolutely!
I don’t think it’s that they didn’t want to be with me, but I think they never asked because they didn’t want to be seen with me as a girlfriend or even a date. Dating someone who is fat is embarrsing and people will stare at you right?
When I met my husband I was about 60 pounds lighter than I am now, but don’t get me wrong I was still about 100 pounds overweight then. He was an athlete and still gave me a chance and even wanted to date me. Isn’t that sad? I look at ever guy I went out on a date with as someone who gave me a chance. They looked beyond my weight and said why not?
I think I am a good person and I am fun, but 80% of the time I wasn’t ever given a shot. You know that… “Your pretty, BUT….ummm!” When I say this it isn’t meant in an arrogant way by any means, but I think a lot of men missed out on me. They never gave me a chance because of everything superficial. I am not saying I am a prize catch but you don’t know if someone is worth their weight (no pun intended) until you get to know who they are.
I am the winner in the end because the real man of my dreams is the one I married, the athlete who gave me a shot and never looked back! Every day the perfect couple never happens because some superficial man or woman rejects the person of their dreams and keeps looking for something “better!”
