Anonymous asked: I've recently started dating someone who is very athletic and I'm pretty overweight. I normally don't have self esteem issues about my body, but I have a hard time believing they're physically attracted to me because everyone they've dated before me has also been really athletic. It's making me really insecure. Do you have any advice on how to get over this?
I hear this.
I have talked with the gq about this a lot. I am the first fat person they’ve ever dated. Everyone else they’ve dated has been thin. It was hard for me to get over, because I kept comparing myself and not understanding how they could want to be with ME.
But the truth is - our partners are with us because they want to be. Just because people have dated a certain body type doesn’t mean that’s all they like. Plus - fat people are fucking hot. Why wouldn’t they want to date us?!
