On her blog, Plus-Size Princess, Ce Ce Olisa has detailed everything from what it's like to be the only big black girl in a yoga class (fine, thanks!), to her adventures in plus-size dating in the Big Apple.The next morning my tall, thin, redheaded roommate had 10 messages — I had two.And, one of them was a welcome message from the owner of the site, so I guess that doesn’t really count.I like having multiple dating accounts, so when she asked me to sign up with her, I happily agreed.We set up our profiles, added a few quirky one-liners for good measure, uploaded photos, and went to bed.
After messaging for a few days, he asked if I wanted to grab a drink with him.
Of course, our profiles weren't identical, but within a week, my tall, thin, redheaded roommate was coming home late from dates with guys she met online, leaving me to finish our bottle of Moscato alone.
Seeing how the dating floodgates opened for my tall, thin, redheaded roommate made me very aware of my slow trickle of interested men.
We had a decent first date, the chemistry wasn’t electric, but it was there.
We continued texting after our first date, and then he informed me that he was running a sale on his personal training sessions and would I like to buy five sessions so that he can help me hit my weight loss goals?
