After my extreme amount of PDA in pictures on Instagram I hope this has
worked as a perfect bait to get you on to my -well what I would call it the
DIRTY LAUNDRY blog post. Yes, I did con you into coming and reading this...you
can leave now or stay and know why I did this in the very first place and bit
Sidenote: I also am going to reply to all your polls and queries
I'm going to be extremely honest I have been the victim of
having to deal with people sharing unsolicited opinions about my relationship.
Even more so when I'm the broader end of the spectrum(literally) of a mixed-weight relationship, you really get an
I have always believed relationships for me have been like my
old cotton underwear maybe ..you only flaunt them to your really close family
that sees it hanging on the clothing line after it couldn't get through a dry
spin! Yet you can't let it go because it is your comfiest pair. Couldn't have
come with a worse anecdote really! But that's how I woke up feeling today. I
have certainly become no relationship expert overnight but I have had my own
share of ups and downs of a lifetime.
To the most definitive time, I'm sure I have been pushing myself
to write this blog but haven't have come around it And spare me today if I
sound so crass but I really do intend to speak my heart out. The blog post
today is notdedicated to my relationship, my story or my dating life in general.
I may be open to the fact that how much I have used tinder or bumble in the
places I have traveled to but I have always believed keeping my personal life
So many questions- is he your boyfriend? How are you dating?
Aren't you too fat for him? Too ugly? Oh, wait there was even a question that
said differently beautiful people? Where did you even find him? How did you get
him to like you?
Now I don't mean to lash out at my readers because well it is
the curiosity and I know for a fact that everyone been tired of seeing me and
Sanky together where nothing would ever materialize but really it's a body
positive fashion blog where I take upon my rants on clothes, lifestyle product,
and my travels!
I only write this with such strong sentiments today to give
people reaction to their questions. Why does everybody feel there is a need to
judge a mixed size couple? Does my body isn't enough of ground to make off that
it also needs to seep into my personal life. Do I need to date a fat person
'cos I'm fat?
I know many of us to hold fast the idea that opposites attract,
but in reality, couples are usually more similar than dissimilar and there’s a
wealth of evidence and even more science to the mindset that couples match on
intelligence, attitudes, and physical attributes such as attractiveness and
height. Walking upon to people on the street and judging the idea random
couples has never been my thing (Yes, I’m extremely giving them a mental
makeover in my head ) but not judge what their relationship could be. I have
had my own share of stumble and guessing games gone wrong to which it dawned
upon why did I really have to guess it, in any case, …it isn’t like my opinion
would make a difference it would only lead to more awkward silences. Avoiding
bringing up my notions on things that aren’t my outlook not only lead to more
pleasant conversations but more promising relationships in future.
Now because everyone has been super curious about my dating
life, I will bare it all! Like all post, we will touch upon the little history
that I have had with boys and Men in general. Now I ‘m not the girl that enters
the class or any vicinity and everything start shining. There are girls like
that, are a perfect rose but I’m a freaking sunflower or an amaryllis [case in
point referencing Sierra Burgess is a loser]. Nobody even knew of my existence
really. First heartbreak and being dumped at 15 I felt it too. But it became
such a mandate to have a boyfriend a crush I try too hard really. I resorted to
internet dating- catfished at 15 ...yup I did that! Too much of a secret to
contain, now that I look back at my secret life of a “teen at 15” I do realize
how overwhelming it all was. Because of bulimia & hiding it away, I spent
way too much time in the bathroom and under the bed. It was my favorite
hideout; it seemed to make everything go away.
High school was the perfect struggle, bachelorette degree seemed
like trying too hard at everything and the late bloomer that I was in almost
every aspect well it’s not hard that I had my very first steady relationship at
21. Yup that’s right I possibly couldn’t think of being the coveted childhood
sweetheart as much as I wanted to.
One thing that I have really learned after getting my heart
broken well let's just say, several time, I have nailed the recipe to bring my
mojo back. I have learned for a fact that once you come in a committed
relationship it isn’t just about you two alone, a couple doesn’t live in a
vacuum and thus we are all are the preys of social commentary. Whilst there is
no official data to quantify the proportion of men who fetishize fat women’s
bodies, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to suggest that it’s a thing.
Men dating me have been seen as the sort that fetishizes fat
woman …what’s worse is the term BBW being used in the worst of sense and
landing up on porn sites when it really just means BIG Beautiful WOMEN.
I know we cannot stop the
reckless advice or opinions from the society or try and develop thick skin ‘cos
let’s just face it everyone and anyone at some given point of time will have a
problem and even a say on your relationship (the look and advises, really) but
I can promise you one thing that wouldn’t affect you until you let it get to
you. It’s a 24 x 7 commitment of understanding and unspoken words, sentiments
that even the slightest gesture conveys it.
Coming back to my relationship I cannot comment but let’s just
start with we are really good friends and those of you who loved his screen
presence you will see him a lot more – he is a model and an actor.
Now I want to answer to all the questions that were asked on my
poll and via DMs, I have taken the liberty to screenshot and put it here but
one particular message really touched me and I felt so deeply for her
This message made my heart sink,I know I have been that girl in your shoes.Even after writing this 2000 words prolonged post I have so much angst and so much I want to tell! Every influencer/friends/close relative that I have spoken to have felt the very same as you and me.I honestly feel and have only one thing to say to you each one of comes with our flaws,we are anything but righteous in any sense.The boy likes you for who you are and that is the reason why he is with you in the very first place to begin with.I feel not a cent percent confident when I'm without any clothing on..you know everybody sees me as a confident woman but my very essence lies in the fact as how I learnt to style my clothes.Now take that very essence away and in that stark nakedness of not only my fat rolls and empty thought I feel extremely deprived, someone who is not worthy of anyone's love!We all go through it and the only way we could possibly come over with is swallow the bitter tablet where we bereave ourselves of love and watch our own precious self the way our partners do! Although one should never measure their worthiness by the love that they get from their partners but it's definitely means the world when you have arms wide open to welcome you back home. I think you are extremely capable and lovable,try and see if you enjoy working out with him or anything else that you want to do with him.If not,there's no rulebook which needs you to like and do the exact same things as he does.
If you are reading this today (and every one whose felt the same way) please reach out,I may not have a solution to your problem but a patient ear to listen to you.
Takecare my baby-girls and boys
