Overweight people dating Free chat with sexy xxx woman
I wrote this for the Bold Italic, for whom I had a short-lived freelance writing career.
They wanted something honest about being my size and dating in Los Angeles.
When they folded, it was returned to me to do as I wish.
And then I suddenly found myself afraid to publish it so it's been in a folder for a few months.

Finding love is always challenging, but it’s especially hard in a city with tunnel-vision-like focus on appearance for someone who doesn’t match the high standards set for beauty in Los Angeles.

I have never been “the norm.” I have been overweight all my adult life (see also heavy, curvy, voluptuous, fat, “BBW” — whatever term you want to use).
Being a single, overweight woman in Los Angeles, I learned early on that my dating life will never be normal.
Not just because men (and women) treat you differently or because single women can be competitive, but because I am my own worst enemy.
I impose the most rules, restrictions, and justifications in my life.
As the chief lawmaker of my own village, I abide by a somewhat irrational code of conduct.
