Diary of a Fat Woman continued

I left the single parent association and went on to university, I made a very good male friend but I still did not find a boyfriend. They say that women find men in university and it has long been a folk myth that women attend university just to find husbands. I can say it was never true for me. The eligible men were not interested in fat women in university any more than they were anywhere else.

It was about this time that I discovered the internet, and it was not long afterward that I discovered internet dating. It was easier to hide behind a computer screen. Even when I did send a picture, the men didn’t seem to mind. I found that American men were more tolerant of my weight than Canadian men were. This was very good for my self-esteem. However, did it really matter – I never got to meet them in real life anyway?

After about three years I got tired of trying to find men in the USA; it was just too difficult to meet. So I set my goals on men in Canada and it was back to square one. You see even though I told the men I was obese they said it didn’t matter until they saw me in person and then I never got a second date. At first I thought it was just me, and then after talking to my other overweight friends I found the same things were happening to them as well.
