I’ve been chatting to a guy this evening on Tinder and then we moved to WhatsApp (as Tinder is shit).
It all seemed to be going well – we had loads in common and were talking about kids, what we like to do, work, etc – and then he asked for a full length photo of me. And I sent him one of me that I took there and then. I know I didn’t look my best but I wasn’t expecting him to run a mile.
This is the picture I sent:
I explained that I’m a bit heavier than I would like to be and apologised for being in slobbing around gear and I got a polite but dismissive comment that I was “not what he was looking for”.
This made me feel awful and really set me back. I ran a bath and cried and cried. I’d only gone back on Tinder that night. He seemed really nice. I don’t think I’m THAT fat. And so what if I am. I’m still attractive and scrub up well.
I recorded a video of me talking about this which you can see below:
