Funny blog about dating

As I minimised the Whats App conversation on my phone, I was filled with dread about what the next evening would bring.

It was a couple of weeks before Christmas and I was going on my first date since the end of my last relationship, two years ago.

To say I was extremely nervous was a severe understatement.

I’d been talking to Robert* for a couple of weeks via Bumble and then Whats App, and all seemed to be going well.

What should have been a lovely couple of dates – a bid to improve my confidence and self-esteem while tackling the shark-infested waters of dating – has turned into a teaching moment for me, and has definitely made me feel a lot more wary about dating in general and more importantly, trusting men. We’ve all heard of sick pranks such as the 'pull a pig' game, which involves a group of men daring each other to hook up with the least attractive woman (in their eyes) in order to gain clout.

As much as I know that I am an awesome person, I’m blindingly aware that the way I look is not what mainstream society considers to be 'beautiful', and that’s something I always have to think about and carry with me.

As plus-size women, we are not afforded the same humanity, care, love and respect as our thinner counterparts.

This can force a monumental drop in confidence and either put us off dating for life or lead us to partake in more casual dating in an effort to prove our worth through sex. ) I had already deleted Robert’s number from my phone, after not hearing from him for a couple of weeks, so I have no way to contact and chastise him for what he did.

Would you be as admiring if someone pulled a prank like this on a plus-size relative – on your sister, perhaps, or your cousin?

Most of all, it’s time to start taking the emotions, perspectives and feelings of fat women seriously.

  1. Without going back over the reasoning behind Mc Ilroy’s decision to miss out on the Irish Open at Lahinch, so that he has his best shot at winning the 148th Open at Royal Portrush, perhaps it is worth wondering if the Irish Open - the first of the so-called Links Swing that also takes in the Scottish (sandwiched nicely in the middle) and the British Opens - is in the most desired date in the calendar.
