For a minute I forgot myself and I got back online to see who has been checking me out on Plenty of Fish.
And the answer is MANY MEN.
I had over 30 emails but as I scanned them, none of them were appropriate.
So I poked around a bit and found one guy I liked.
Likes the outdoors?
Likes curvy girls?
Actually, in his profile he specifically requested “petite” women.
So there you have it.
My foray into online dating lasted FIVE WHOLE MINUTES before I came to my senses and closed the browser window.
Sure, I like an athletic guy as much as the next woman, but I also like men sporting the “dad bod.”
Am I the only one out there who thinks that all bodies are beautiful?
I suppose if you know your preference is small and petite then it’s best you state that outright in your profile and not waste anyone’s time.
I have a tendency to be attracted to big tall “lumberjack” men.
But I don’t put that in my profile because, honestly, personality counts.
Two of my last four boyfriends have been anti-type.
All this goes to say that it took less than five minutes for me to realize why I got off internet dating in the first place.
Want to know the cure for insanity?
Five minutes on Plenty of Fish.
Pretty much my whole life I have wished I had legs like Heidi Klum.
Slim. Sexy. Statuesque.
What did I get?
Lately however, I haven’t minded as much.
Perhaps it’s because I no longer read beauty magazines which inundate me with images of women with bodies so very unlike my own.
Perhaps it’s because I’ve set up my Instagram feed to show me images of plus size beauties like @lillias_right
There’s just something about seeing women with bodies like my own that make me feel more confident in my own skin.
Nevertheless, I was surprised to find that THIS
was my most popular boudoir photo.
Thick thighs. Hip tattoos showing. Airbrushed skin like plastic.
I suppose that there are men (and women) out there who like thick legs.
I know they are growing on me.
My other most popular picture on this blog is this one:
A hot tub photo with a near nip slip.
Ample breasts, steamy skin, wild hair.
The popularity of this photo surprises me less.
I’ve just got to say how very impressed I am with my blog audience for liking these photos.
Thick thighs and bodacious breasts are IN!
I’ve just discovered Instagram.
I know. I’m late to the party.
What can I say, I was a Facebook girl until Facebook couldn’t keep me occupied enough during my bouts of insomnia.
Yesterday I went through Instagram and I followed a bunch of curvy models just to, you know, have examples of body diversity in my life.
And overall I was pleased with the results.
Until. . .
Until I discovered that a bunch of these models were really “aspiring” models who post borderline pornography of themselves on Instagram.
That’s definitely one way to get followers!
Anyway, my prudish side came out to play and I unfollowed a bunch of “aspiring” curvy girl models.
Basically at 3 am when I’m up and awake, I guess I’m not looking for a video of a woman playing with her own tits or bounce squatting in front of a camera.
The difference between men and women, eh?
So I’m having a little trouble finding an accurate representation of me on the playa at Burning Man.
All the pictures I see are of petite women wearing nearly nothing. Very beautiful ladies, indeed.
But where are the goddesses? Where are the Amazons? Where are my curvy ladies?
I’m guessing that with 60,000 people descending on the playa, there’s got to be some body diversity among the women. But you wouldn’t know it to look at the pictures.
It’s a little troublesome as I try to organize my wardrobe for the event. I have no one to model my outfits after.
Can I wear a bikini on the playa? Will I be the only curvy lady wearing one? Will there be body hate on the playa like there is in real life?
Am I obsessing over this a little too much?
I know what you’re all thinking…. Just wear what I want to wear.
And in theory I agree with you.
But I’d feel soooo much better if I could just take a peek as the diversity of styles on the playa, including women with ample boobs and butts.
There’s not much representation of Plus on the Playa.
