Plus size dating australia
I knew this would happen before I booked my ticket but it’s just something I accepted as part of coming home.For decades I tried to prove my worth is more than my weight to no avail – so I literally had to move overseas to be seen.I even launched my own 50 Fat Dates project as a way of documenting my experience in the plus size dating world. Which is why I packed up, sold everything, gave up my radio hosting job and moved to Los Angeles with nothing but a suitcase.I’d grown up in Australia thinking I was the problem (not slim enough, pretty enough, smart enough, or cool enough) – then one day I had an epiphany.‘It’s not me. I was exactly the same person; same personality, same looks, and same weight.
I have several family members and friends who are considered to be plus-size, and they’ve sometimes struggled in their dating lives because some people can’t see past superficial, unrealistic standards that celebrities, the media, and society place on us.It was a personal priority to make sure I included up-to-date full length photos so when I showed up in person my date actually got what they’d seen online. My authenticity wasn’t always reciprocated but I could sleep well at night back at Melrose Place.
