I’m 18 dates deeply in my own 50 Dates that is fat quest.
As an advantage size girl in Australia i discovered it hard to meet Aussie males and wound up going to Hollywood to dip my toe when you look at the deep end associated with the dating pool.
It worked! We finished up in a three-year relationship that was great, we broke up and I was single again until it wasn’t and.
New Year’s Eve rolled around I happened to be considering the approaching year. My fate had been unavoidable. I’d to haul myself right straight back in the dating horse and place a chubby leg over. The only method this is planning to happen was myself a goal, a target or had a plan if I set.
We began thinking it through, “What if i simply did one date a week? ” seems doable. “If i did so that for a i’d date 50 individuals. Year” That’s huge! We persuaded myself through cliches, “It’s figures game. You’ve surely got to kiss some frogs. Every lid features a teapot. ”
Along with that 50 Fat Dates came to be.
Why 50 Fat Dates?
Because I’m fat (duh) and I also had been taking place 50 times.
Additionally, because full figured dating is really a taboo, because countless big girls (including me) have now been told they’re ‘too fat up to now, ’ because i needed to discover exactly what dudes actually think of dating full figured females and because we needed seriously to place myself on the market!
Be Real. Is not this 50 Fat F#cks?
Although on the basis of the response I’m certain could have been possible. It’s an advantage size quest that is dating a sequence of sweaty one evening appears.
I’d been running my personal plus size we blog, Big Curvy like, for many years so that it ended up being a pretty wise solution to chronicle the 50 dates.

The Anal Episode
Whenever Everybody Claims “I Can Not Think You Aren’t Taken”.
Valentines Day had been the perfect time for you to begin. Yes, in my own head this is a comedy that is real-life-romantic the generating and I also ended up being without a doubt would definitely have legit ‘meet cute’ just like within the movies. Incorrect. Wef perhaps I knew that which was in shop.
My Full Figured Dating Arrange
Casting a wide internet had been my main concern. We tried internet dating, meetups, introductions, dating occasions, big woman dance clubs, seminars, weddings, and networking mixers. I happened to be additionally targeting a cross section of males and so I didn’t go following the exact same ‘type’ of man We constantly dated.
Think about a silver fox, model kid, divorcee, solitary dad, white collar, blue collar, various countries, ethnicity and religions. When you’ve got 50 dates to try out using the set of opportunities is long. It had been shaping up to function as bloody Noah’s Ark of dating with one guy of any ‘type. ’
Really though, I happened to be in my own mid-thirties and had been looking for myself good guy and in place of sitting during my apartment wondering why I’m solitary and waiting around for you to definitely come knocking to my door I made the decision to complete something about any of it.
Although, (spoiler alert) one of many 50 Fat Dates actually did come knocking to my door. He had been a plumber delivered by the landlord to repair the restroom so we finished up on a night out together (he had been #17).
Exactly exactly What took place from the times?
I was catfished, stood up, and lied to times that are multiple. Yeah, not quite the romcom I happened to be dreaming about.
One man possessed a gf and had been searching for you to definitely ‘join the relationship’ (yes a threesome) another had a gf, (we just discovered whenever she tracked me straight straight down and delivered me an email with photographic proof warning me personally of their ‘ways’ and a warning that is thinly veiled of get off my guy).
There is the sexy ex-military guy turned comedian who lived together with his mum, the weapon lover who went me personally through just just exactly what he’d do in order to an intruder (taser them until they poop themselves watch for them to wake and taser them once again evidently), the super nice Spaniard (there was clearly no spark but we enjoyed the bottomless champagne and orange juice at brunch), together with lumbersexual we came across while shooting a film (he was an incredibly high hipster and I also wondered if he’d ever really chopped lumber).
Not absolutely all regarding the times had been horrendous. The good dudes I dated had been a little center for the road without any spark.
Had been fat ever a problem?
Nope. Nobody freaked if they saw I became fat in true to life along with my dating profile. Really, it was found by me quite simple up to now in Los Angeles. A great deal easier compared to Australia.
All 18 times asked me away once more and I truly broadened my perspectives whenever it stumbled on dating outside my ‘type’.
Why do you take a look at date #18?
Mr Beverly Hills kinda broke me personally. He stated he had been 38 (he had been 55). He stated he had been solitary (he’d been married 33 years). He stated he’d no children (he had three ). He stated he had been a residential property designer (he had been a CFO for a rapper well well worth $820M).
We think there’s always that individual whom changes both you and he had been that in my situation.
I’ve been on a dating hiatus ever since and a great deal has changed in my life but #18 is not likely to be the conclusion. The search for 50 Dates that is fat continues look out for date #19.
I’m returning to my ‘type’ to discover what the results are this time around.
