Uptight about dating
The rest of the profile details were the same for both – Funnily enough, when that ‘thin’ me bikini shot was taken, I still thought I was fat.
That’s why I’m wearing that white skirt – to cover up my ‘massive belly’ and ‘big thighs’.
Thin me received more than double the attention – 36 messages, 211 likes and 210 visits.
There was nothing dramatically different in the content of the messages – some men just sent a ‘hi’, some wrote essays, some tried one-liners and others just opted for old-fashioned compliments.
Less admirable are those who break rules or thumb their noses at convention just for the heck of it.
There’s nothing particularly praiseworthy about subverting societal norms out of laziness, childishness, or disrespect for others.
Danielle voiced a concern that seems prevalent among single women these days: “I’ve been dating Rick for a year, and he’s lots of fun. He’s always playing laser tag, poker, and video games with his friends. He’s had three low-level jobs since I’ve known him. Is it too much to ask for a guy who is both fun to be with and a responsible human being? Lest you think this is a male-bashing article that lumps all men together as immature and irresponsible, hold on.
I have no idea why I came up with them btw – it’s not even like A Night To Remember was stuck in my head.” It began: “Not so long ago, the average American man in his 20s had achieved most of the milestones of adulthood: a high-school diploma, financial independence, marriage and children.Today, most men in their 20s hang out in a novel sort of limbo, a hybrid state of semi-hormonal adolescence and responsible self-reliance.”1 It seems that Peter Pan is very much alive and well.As any psychologist will tell you, chronic self-centeredness is a big pool of quicksand on the road of love. You can stay afloat in it for a while, but sooner or later you’ll submerge and suffocate. ” That innocent little word has become a part of our cultural vernacular, for better or worse. In the movie version of ‘Peter Pan’, the iconic man-child tells his new lady friend, “Forget about them, Wendy.Forget them all, and come with me where you’ll never, never have to worry about grown-up things again.” If a charming, fun-loving man-child says something like that to you, think twice about becoming a resident of Never-Neverland.
