“If only you were slimmer, I would totally date you.”
I have always had this sort of shit thrown at me. In some guys’ eyes, I am the so-called, perfect girl. But there’s only one teenie tiny problem, “Oh, nothing too big of a problem,” he says, that I’m not a size 8 and below.
See, for them, I am beautiful, funny, charming, vivacious, witty and independent – their words, not mine – but it seems that the only thing that is between them and their need to make a move on me is my weight.
“It’s a matter of preference. Everybody has their own preference, that’s just mine.”
Well, I guess there is truth in that. I for one, prefer guys who are into curvaceous girls like me so it wouldn’t be awkward for me to love myself and my body excessively while he hates the sight of it. I prefer him to love it too and tell me that I’m beautiful just the way I am without having his eyes twitch every time he says that.
So here is my ‘IF ONLY’.
“If only he was into curvy girls.”
All this while, I never realize that weight could put a barrier between being friends and being, well, more than friends. It’s annoying really and pathetic, but it’s true. Yes, it is mean, but that’s just how we are built somehow, so despite hating the idea behind this whole weight is an issue for me thing, I have to realize that there is some truth behind it.
So I decided to head to Facebook and ask my friends about it. What are their ‘if only’ in a guy or a girl. All of them went deep inside their memory box to give me an answer. Old memories resurfaced; some expressed annoyance, regret and some even anger – which I never intended to happen.
I have to say, I blame myself for not giving the proper definition to my request. I meant to say in terms of preference, the general “If only he/she is open to my liberal thoughts” sort of thing. So most of them told me things that regretted them with their previous relationships or love interests, which was fine for me. I am incredibly thankful that they’re sharing that story of theirs with me and now, with you.
