Overweight gay dating
Whenever I go out with friends, it seems that everyone is more interested in two things: 1) getting way too drunk, and 2) being on Grindr in a bar. Yet, what is it about Grindr that makes the app so notorious in not only the gay world, but its now growing presence in mainstream culture?
The internet is full of stories about women being horrifically fat-shamed or harassed on dating sites, and yes, those stories need to be told. And at a certain point, I think they can become inadvertent scare tactics, frightening plus-sized women out of the dating pool.Many gay guys under the age of 25, maybe even older, will relate as they were probably gay online before they were actually out in person.Some even continue to use the internet as their main platform for meeting other men. I am now gay in real life, and I can’t find a real date.For example, my best friend turned 30 two years ago, and she became a volcano of emotions which erupted when the cake her mom was making came out a different color than it was supposed to be.This led to her admissions of hating that she was single, not in the best shape of her life, bad job, and so on and so forth.
