Dating really fat men
As men tend to have greater status in society than women, they can trade this for more attractive mates.” Yes, women have (somewhat) closed the money-and-power gap with men, but stereotypes are tough to dislodge, and they “still significantly impact our perceptions of others,” Harman said.Men are still “perceived to be more agentic, assertive, dominant, and women more dependent, emotional,etc.” There’s an ingrained assumption, then, that men have stuff to “trade,” but women don’t, and this assumption is part of the reason it’s still seen as weird when an unattractive woman dates an attractive man — what could she possibly be trading? My favorite question is, "Have you ever tried a salad? And Wii Fit (anyone else die a little inside when that little scale avatar groans at you?

Men don't lose weight as easily as you might think. One of the most difficult things for a fat dude to hear, especially when dating, is that they have a great personality but no other redeeming physical characteristics. When you remind us how "unhealthy" we are, all you're doing is reducing us to our weight and that doesn't feel good. If I haven't suggested I might like to go for a 10-mile hike, telling me how much I'd enjoy it every time I see you is a mistake (and also makes me thing you want to get me alone so you can murder me in the wilderness).7. I appreciate that, especially if it's just a nice compliment that doesn't come with a "but" after. If I'm all "let's go running," you should absolutely come if you want to.
