I know I'm going to catch some heat for writing this, but it's just the way I felt tonight.
Sometimes-not all of the time, or even most of the time-I wish I were dumb and skinny rather than intelligent and overweight.
I know that you are all going to tell me that there are guys out there who don't feel this way. And I know or know of guys who say they'd much rather have a girl who thinks for herself and who is "real". But I can tell you from my experience with online dating in the past and from my night out at a local bar that I pretty much think these guys are full of shit and that they are just trying to seem like nice guys.
Yeah. They're "nice guys" who flirt and fall in love with skinny boring girls with (sometimes) ugly faces because she's a size 2. They'd never even consider talking to a girl who wears double digits, and most of the time when they do, it's only because they want to talk to their hot size 2 friend.
Like I said, I know I'm going to get yelled at for this post by at least 2 of you. And like I said, I don't always or even most of the time feel this way. But being someone who's always told how great she is, how pretty she is, how much she has to offer, and being someone who hasn't had a drink bought for her by a stranger in a very long, long time (but been with lots of girls who have) I can tell you that every now and then, I'd like to be the skinny dumb girl who gets to feel special.
**I'd like to be certain that you all know that I am not saying that skinny people are stupid and that you can't be skinny and smart. Not at all! Most skinny people I know ARE smart. It just seems sometimes that when given the choice between a stupid person (who is skinny) and a person who looks like me (who is not) he will choose skinny because he doesn't like round. Even if the skinny girl isn't interesting, funny or intelligent...
I'm sorry if it seemed like I was putting skinny girls down...I wasn't.
