Of course, our profiles weren't identical, but within a week, my tall, thin, redheaded roommate was coming home late from dates with guys she met online, leaving me to finish our bottle of Moscato alone.
Seeing how the dating floodgates opened for my tall, thin, redheaded roommate made me very aware of my slow trickle of interested men.
Sure, dating is a mixed bag no matter your body size, but I always say that dating as a plus-size girl can be…different.
I didn’t know it was possible to get so many messages in a day until she showed me her inbox.
Oftentimes, it’s downright frustrating, especially when I compare my dating life to that of my thinner friends (read more about that here).
Going out to bars and clubs can make a big girl feel invisible.
The next morning my tall, thin, redheaded roommate had 10 messages — I had two.
And, one of them was a welcome message from the owner of the site, so I guess that doesn’t really count.
