Size dating

Sapora would rather drop the label and help people see relationships between people of different sizes as normal relationships."If we accept things as normal, we remove the fetish aspect and we just see people as people who love each other," she says. For me, categorising my relationship as mixed-weight was one way to acknowledge that the differences between my ex and me informed how each of us experienced our relationship.A mixed-weight relationship is exactly what it sounds like: It's a relationship in which there's a noticeable difference in body size between partners.

The profile names had to be slightly different because the site won’t allow two the same.

I have no idea why I came up with them btw – it’s not even like A Night To Remember was stuck in my head.

And mixed-weight couples, especially when one person is plus size and one is not, have to acknowledge microaggressions that plus size people experience.

Henry says in her video that people assume her husband is making her stay big or would no longer love her if she were to lose weight. People assume that he loves her only because of her size, and not for her personality.

It also gave me something to google when I felt that my ex was subtly fat shaming me, and I didn't know if other people felt the same way.

While labels create categories, they also create opportunities for conversation, and conversation is sorely needed when only one person in a relationship is experiencing discrimination.

I’ve never bought into the lie, popular with some elements of the media, that everything will be better when you’re thin.

But, as a single woman trying everything I can to increase my chances of finding The One, I was interested to see how much of an issue size is for single men.

Thin me received more than double the attention – 36 messages, 211 likes and 210 visits.
