Overweight gay dating

At the end of the day, all gay men want is to be connected with each other. You will always be wondering if you should be having more sex. Be prepared for the beautiful mindfuck that is gay love. Now we could dwell on the fact that these various winners are not gym-sculpted Adonnises themselves, but instead I want to focus on the positive and work on people’s lives instead of trying to stroke the hate-boner.

Within hours of publishing a funny infographic about gay hookup culture, our inboxes were flooded with complaints.

As major gay media outlets published the infographic, they too got their fair share of commenters who wanted them to pull it down.

If you don't believe that many gays are fat-phobic, then read this comment from someone who saw the infographic on Towleroad: For those of you who deny that this is what happens, open a grindr account, attach a picture of an overweight guy, and see what the results are.

As someone with a less than perfect body, I can tell you that you're not going to like the results.

Oh, sure, I've had the word "faggot" hurled at me — and the sad truth is, I'd be shocked if a gay man hadn't — but it was always secondary.

The real source of my bullying was the extra weight I've carried since childhood.Every once in a while, I like to poll my readers on the Nerd Love Facebook Page and on Twitter to find out what issues they feel are holding them back when it comes to dating.And the most common answer is: “I worry that I’m too fat to date.”I’ll be honest: I’m not surprised. According to the Center for Disease Control, 69% of adults 20 years old and over are overweight and 35% are considered obese. When you grow up overweight, everyone notices — not just your classmates, who are too young to have mastered the art of tact, but also friends' parents and teachers.I knew I was fat because people told me I was fat, either directly (a slap to the stomach and an unkind word) or in subtler ways (having a teacher rifle through my lunch box and comment on the contents).Now, I’m going to be blunt: dating can suck when you’re fat.
