Dating : Don’t feel bad because of your body and genetics
I’ve been overweight for much of my life. I’ve felt bad about my looks for awhile recently feeling like I’m ugly or that I’m lesser than other men. I feel like I’m a 6 or 7/10 in terms of looks. But please, don’t do this. You really shouldn’t think that weight singlehandedly kills your chances at dating. Lose weight for the sake of your health, not for the sake of others. Your weight is your business and yours alone. We all sometimes get the short end of the stick in terms of genetics (weight, hair, etc.) You need to respect yourself and your journey. I wouldn’t want to date anyone who thinks that I’m not losing weight fast enough even though I’ve made great efforts to lose weight. And in terms of clothes, it sucks I know, but at least dress decently. People in gen x seem to be more forgiving of t-shirts from what I’ve seen at university in the past. Of course, be hygienic and smell good. For me, that’s a BIGGER turn off. No disrespect, but I don’t think ANYONE would date someone who doesn’t bathe and shower regularly.
