So I figured I’d create a handy how-to list, which will hopefully be helpful to those ready to pop on out of the fat closet, or who already have but aren’t having much success.This is written in a pretty heteronormative manner, which I apologize for, but the experiences I’m most familiar with are men trying to chase women here. Mentioning this first because it’s SUPER important, and it’s the first thing guys tend to mess up on.I’ve seen so many opening lines, especially on dating sites, along the lines of Here’s the thing. You probably think that it’ll make fat girls more likely to contact you first, but honestly it’s hurting your cause more than anything. *(Note, saying things like ‘real women have curves’, ‘only dogs like bones’, ‘skinny girls are gross’ are horrible things to say. We’re real people with real personalities and feelings. Again, can’t speak for all fat girls, but lots of us have had a lot of bad experiences when it comes to dating.It makes you sound like all you care about is our bodies, that’s the most important part to you. So during a first conversation, again, you don’t have to qualify why you’re talking to her. You are more than welcome to have your preferences, but putting down other body types or other people’s preferences is NOT okay. Men who’ll talk the good talk but won’t be seen with us in public, men who’ll have sex with us but make fun of fat girls to their friends, men who think we’re ‘desperate’ and ‘easy’ and just a quick lay. If you don’t think there are guys out there who like fat girls, you are so wrong.Meanwhile, Frank, Charlie, and Mac start their own band but can't agree on what type of music they should play.PM on a Wednesday Dee introduces The Gang to her new boyfriend—an up-and-coming rapper named Lil' Kevin.
My problem is this: This wonderful man with whom I’ve shared some amazing moments and do share a phenomenal connection … He’s not merely out of shape or a hike and a swim away from fit, he’s fat.
When he leaves for the recording studio, Dennis informs Dee that her boyfriend—real name Kevin Gallagher—is retarded.
He remembers Kevin attended special needs classes in elementary school. Now, with Dee on a mission to prove her brother wrong, Mac has a pitch for the gang.
Dennis protests and reminds all of them that there isn't a single person in the pub with any musical ability whatsoever.
Frank, however, is quick to point out that nobody needs musical ability to make it as rock stars in the current world.
