There’s one thing I’ve always wanted to tell fat women, but I’ve never had the balls to do it.
So here it is, I freely admit to being wrong for the majority of my life….
But I’m way more attracted to you than I’ve ever let on…and it doesn’t have anything to do with physical appearance.
It has to do with personality.
Call me crazy, but I think fat women are in general nicer, funnier and more interesting.
Of course, I’m not suggesting that all fat people are funny and all beautiful people are boring.
But I think there’s a correlation, as those that are heavier have had to work harder on their personalities for longer.
Let’s face it, as teenagers most of us were attracted to the beautiful. We wanted to date them and hang around them.
I remember, as a 14 year-old, being struck with awe as I sat behind the most popular girl in Maths class.
She was extraordinary: Brunette, dark-eyed, petite but somehow still perky.
She couldn’t walk anywhere without a buzz around her.
Every guy wanted her.
But now? No thanks.
There’s a theory that fat girls have better personalities.
Why? Because those who weren’t blessed with beauty end up spending more time on their own and quickly realise that funny – as well as being interesting and kind – is their ticket to making friends.
Not to mention that some kind of drive is activated that makes them want to prove everyone wrong.
The fact is, most beautiful women don’t have to try so hard to impress others.
But at a certain point in life, that shifts.
Overweight people are more likely to be happy then skinny ones, according to research.
Carrying extra weight is usually associated with heart disease, diabetes and a range of other health risks.
But there’s a benefit.
A recent study has found that people who are classified as fat are more likely to lead happier lives.
The research was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology and was conducted by a group of scientists at the University of Bristol.
The group used PHESANT (PHEnome Scan ANalysis Tool) to perform automated phenome scans in the UK Biobank.
The Biobank is a data warehouse containing the genetic data of 500,000 men and women in the UK ranging in age from 37 to 73.
They analyzed the data and came to a number of conclusions about the relationship between people’s body mass index (BMI) and their health.
This included the fact that people with higher BMI are more likely to have higher blood pressure, suffer from diabetes and go through puberty at an earlier age.
But there was one additional finding that was surprising.
They found that people who are overweight generally have a calmer state of mind.
Here’s what the researchers stated:
“We also detected a number of potentially causal associations that were previously unknown.
“For example, participants with a genetic propensity to higher BMI were less likely to perceive themselves as a nervous person or to call themselves tense or ‘highly strung’.”
Dana Nicholls is head of eating disorders at the Royal College of Psychiatrists and explained how eating patterns can have an effect on mental make-up:
“We know that if someone is nutritionally compromised that affects their ability to regulate their emotions,” she told The Times.
“It doesn’t surprise me in that sense that there would be a direct link, but I think it’s a really interesting study.”
I’m 28 now and have quickly realized that life is too short to spend it with someone who is boring.
I want to laugh, have deep conversations and be thrilled with life. I also want to be around people with a calm and balanced state of mind.
And if you’re fat, then for me, it’s a solid indication there’s more to you than most skinny girls can offer.
Do you agree? Do fat women generally have better personalities? Let us know in the comments.
