Every Sunday I post my SUNDAY PULL which is a collection of pickup lines, all real, and all used on me.
I’ve said it before but I want to repeat it again is that these pickup lines I have been collecting for eight years. EIGHT! That’s along time. I have three note books / journals filled with these and therefore I have my Sunday posts set for years, even if I have nothing else to say I’ll always have my Sunday post.
I get a lot of messages, twitter replies, and DMs about these incidences. Most people think they happen recently even that week. Although some are recent with many since I’ve been in NYC, most haven’t happened in the last few months.
I have not really been “picked up” “been hit on” or had creepers talk to me in a while. Now one could say it’s cause I’m taken, but then again there is that age old argument that when you are taken is when people show the most interest: and I’m a firm believer in that idea.
So I’m going to tell you why I’m not getting hit on, and it’s very true.
I get hit on far less because I frankly have gotten fat.
Like more then I’ve ever weighed in my life plus 46 pounds.
I am kind of pretty. I mean let’s be honest, I’m not hideous. But I have become fat.
And guys don’t hit on fat girls.
They just don’t.
Now yes yes yes there are those guys that love them some thing to grab onto, I’m not arguing that. But those aren’t the majority.
And yes there are just straight up creepers out there who hit on anything with boobs, but when you are overweight female (especially in NYC) your chances of being picked up go way down. They just do. It has nothing to do with confidence, or how you put yourself out there, or any of those relevant but bullshit answers.
I had this conversation with a bunch of girl friends whose weight has fluctuated, and they all agreed with me. Fat is less desirable. That’s just a fact of life.
Again I’m not saying fat girls don’t get hit on, or shouldn’t get hit on. We’re all deserving of love, but some just aren’t shown it as much as others.
But then again, maybe they should, wouldn’t some say they are an easy target?
I’m the same person I’ve always been just with a bigger waistline, and guys don’t hit on me as much as they have in the past.
And I’ve become highly suspicious of any “fat girl” who claims to be hit on all the time.
What say you?
