Uh-huh. Where did you get your psych degree from?
Of course it matters to fat people that they are less popular, and of course there are still people who will love them, and surely someone with training in human psychology knows better than to suggest that the appropriate response to having a hard time with dating is to give up on relationships altogether.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

You and I would get along quite well. I work in a psych hospital and work with patients in their teens. This is a constant discussion for self image and I've addressed it so many times. First, the media and social medias are trying to make people feel mixed on the topic. 'It's alright to be fat, embrace and love yourself.' or 'If you're fat you're not being healthy, trying to get people to accept fat people isn't healthy.' I'm certain you've seen both thrown around. The truth is, being overweight is really unhealthy and it is difficult for some people to overcome. But this does not condemn them to be alone or make them feel worse about themselves. I've always made the point of meeting girls in the gym who are bigger. Why? Because they're doing something about it. They weren't born with fast metabolism so gaining weight, especially in women, is easier. So I see these girls at the gym, trying to work off the weight, and be healthier. I know that there is a tiny percentage of the population that really has to have medical help in losing weight, but the rest need to make the choice. Am I alright being overweight with this unhealthy lifestyle or do I want to change and be healthier? To me, it's the attitude behind it, not so much the looks. Looks will fade one day and the only thing left in the person you really love is their personality. This includes their positive drive to better themselves. So if someone is overweight, there will be other people who will be fine with this lifestyle and I wish them all the best. I want someone who can share the same lifestyle with me, and if she is a little bigger but is willing to keep a positive attitude and work on being healthy and happy, then yeah that I found someone like that. Mind over matter.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
