What really bothers me is having to send a photo to online dating sites.
A photo isn't the person – and for someone like myself who isn’t that photogenic, I make a much better impression face-to-face.
But I admit that, sometimes, I can also be shallow and tend to say yes or no based solely on looks.
Still, I am frustrated by the fact that I don’t get considered by ordinary, nice guys.
When I ran a matchmaking agency, I met a lot of men. Interesting in the respect that, it's surprising how, even those who are actively looking for love, are still so non-negotiable about what they require in a partner.
When signing up, I'd meet them for a coffee, get a better understanding of their personalities in order to consider who they'd be best matched with. The usual lists cropped up time and time again, height and income high on the list of requirements for women - for men, age and, you guessed it, weight.
Forget everyone else for a moment and truly focus on yourself. Like a typical elementary-age child, I never worked up the courage to tell him my feelings.
Loving yourself is the first step to finding somebody else to love you. I imagined myself walking up to him and telling him how I felt, though I never turned those dreams into reality. I had a handful of crushes in the past, but I was going to encounter a beast I had no clue how to handle: a potential crush on .
Yet I forgot the opinion that mattered most—my opinion of myself.
There was no way that he could like me in that way.
I was interested in giving a relationship with Mike a try, yet I was afraid.
Put differently, a man’s weight is a non-issue, or so it seems!
Interestingly, Crazy Monday has observed that a good number of Kenyan women are overweight, especially the married ones who live in urban areas, and particularly Nairobi.
