Skinny Teens Ponder How Fat People Fall In Love

Last night two girls with a combined weight of approximately 220 pounds tried to understand what made it possible for fat people to fall in love with one another. One girl stated that even fat people found models and celebrities, especially skinny ones, attractive. She wondered how, if their standards for attraction were the same, fat people could genuinely be attracted to one another. Her counterpart argued that perhaps they had no choice, that fat people could not get get dates with skinny people and therefore chose from what was available. But choosing out of desperation was not the same as attraction argued the first girl, concluding that in fact fat people were not really attracted to one another and that all relationships between them were merely an attempt to stave off loneliness.
The second girl contemplated this a moment then responded that seeing fat people buying make-up and perfume always depressed her because, really, what was the point.

Thanks a lot. The stories are real though obviously edited for space. I think of myself as a writer, but there's some things you just can't make up.

Oh, how callous the young and beautiful can be...and how cruel. I shudder to think of any overweight people in their vacinity overhearing their conversation. Too bad we couldn't fast forward and check back in on them in say, 25 years to see how they look. (I'd be really disappointed if they were still gorgeous....why can't life be filled with poetic justice??? Then they'd be about 300 lbs....)

Funny thing about being 300 lbs. No one ever supsects that I have a (fit) husband AND girlfriend. And more offers than I care to deal with.

Funny thing about me--I'm funny, extremely intelligent and very talented. Oh, and very fat.

I definitely do not fit in a box. Heh.

As a chubby teenager, i must say... that what those two girls discussed has kept me thinking for hours sometimes. Of course it takes the honesty of a skinny teenager to see the question in its bare reality.

Man, your blog is so much eye-opening.

Wow, I'm speechless. So apparently all fat people are ugly and pitiful and should just end their lives because they can never fall in love and will always be lonely. You've got to be kidding me.

This is depressing. The only thing that cheers me is to know that one day these Barbie dolls will be middle aged women with wrinkles and sagging breasts.Perhaps by THEN they will understand that people who love each other think their significant others are beautiful on the inside, no matter what the outside means.

How horrid -- yet I know people who think like that! You wonder when they will grow up. Society is so superficial... I agree! they need some poetic justice!

Maybe when those girls are older, and their husbands (who will no doubt be equally shallow) have left them for younger, skinnier women, they'll get a glimpse of a hint of a clue.

Maybe these girls are right in a shallowly honest sort of way. I mean, I didn't read any comments from a skinny person dating a fat person, just fat people and how they have a husband and are committing adultry, having an affair, whatever.
