Really tall over 6 ft. The game changes and you have to adapt to the game. Thanks, Kate, for making this more visible.
Yes or no: do I need to lose weight to date? Its not okay to think that means anything more than that. Technically liking skinny chicks is against nature's law, since fat mothers can provide more nutrients to their young during gestation. I'm just not attracted to her physically. Learn how to love yourself by nourishing your body with what it needs to survive and thrive. And attraction is both ridiculously subjective and also influenced by what society deems normal. What if she gains 50 during pregnancy or illness and can only lose 20 of it? Who you fall in love with may not be your ideal visual attraction.
I have tried, but thus far all I can manage is to temporarily suppress my revulsion to the rolls of fat. A blonde person desiring brunettes is not hypocrisy. This leaves overweight men with the option of either working out or working on their material. Trying to unlearn that would mean unlearning a core part of who she is. My overweight friend almost fucking died this summer because of this bullshit Fat Acceptance movement. Actually, I think people in fat acceptance get this pretty readily, but ocassionally you'll see a post bemoaning the superficialism of people who only date thin partners.

And stop brandishing your naturalistic fallacy. But I think what I was trying to say is that I feel I was already forced — that we all are. I try not to ask why, and just go with the flow. This I blame on childhood conditioning. A chubby girl is fine.
Sorry, I lost weight and this is one of my many prizes a gift bag pops out of your scale the morning you hit your goal weight. Mike talked to me all the time. It works vice versa, too.
