I read in a local newspaper that a match maker said to a fat woman that it's hard for the match maker to find someone for the woman in her state, and suggested she get rid of the fat. (Nothing was mentioned about a fat man seeking the match maker's help. I wonder if her response would have been the same.) I personally thought it's hurtful to the woman and very bad advertising for the match maker. Who said that being fat means you can't find a partner? And if the match maker was trying to be helpful, why are men so shallow? If these men have come to the match maker, obviously they couldn't find anyone on their own, so I should think that fatness shouldn't be so high on their priorities.. Obviously she wouldn't have said what she said if it wasn't true, though. Or would she? Your comments are welcome.
