I can’t explain how much I love my readers!
I got this email the other day from one of you and it just goes to show how sharp, funny and insightful TBGB fans are:
My friend thinks I need to be set up. Can’t say I really disagree with her. She started working for a new company recently. Apparently there’s a cute boy she noticed. She said she was going to find out if he was dating anyone, and if he wasn’t, that I might find myself with a blind date.
Okay, fine. I appreciate the effort and concern. Could even turn out to be really fun. But here’s the thing…
She has a duty to disclose the fat.
People cannot go tell a boy (regardless of what he looks like) that they have a cute, smart, funny, adorable lawyer-friend they want to set him up with and fail to tell him that I’m a chubby girl — even though 83% of my curves are in all the right places. I know she is my good friend and probably doesn’t “see” me as a fat girl, but it will save him, me, and her much trouble if she tells him up front. I don’t need to see the disappointment on his face when he meets me for the first time and realizes that the cute, smart, funny adorable lawyer-friend is not what he pictured in his mind.
That is all.
Yes. Yes. Yes. I don’t have anything to add, you’ve said it all!
P.S. Have any of YOU been set up on a blind date? Did you “disclose the fat”? How’d it go?
