Conscious and online dating

But don't just take our word for it, read what some of our ex-singles say in our Disabled Dating Success Stories.Here at Whispers4u, we pride ourselves on being one of the first, if not the first site of it's kind.Because we’re poorly educated about transitions in our culture, we mistake the fear for doubt and thus begins a scary domino effect of believing that we’re in the wrong relationship.The message is: If you’re doubting, you must be settling. This is dangerous advice, and only entrenches the doubt further as it doesn’t allow room for the normal fear to surface, air out, and find resolution. It’s something many single people wonder, myself included.My weight has fluctuated dramatically throughout my life – I was a fat child, a thin teenager, a chubby sixth former, a skinny student and so on, up and down through my adult life.So, to find out if men like fat women, I created two identical online dating profiles of me size 18 and size 10 to find out.I should point out that I’m an 18 at this point and happy to use the word fat because I find ‘plus size’ patronising and I mentally think of it as phat instead. I set up these profiles on free online dating site OKCupid.

All transitions constellate fear and grief: we fear the unknown, we grieve letting go of the identity that we’ve embodied our entire life, we fear failure, we grieve separating from family of origin, we fear growing up and we grieve the end of childhood, we fear the risk of loss that accompanies opening your heart fully to another human being, we grieve the fantasy of marrying a perfect, flawless partner.

are powerful buzzwords in our wedding/marriage culture and can easily lead even the most level-headed bride or groom down a dangerous path of possibly leaving a healthy, loving partnership because they think it doesn’t measure up to the impossible standard that our culture upholds.

Yet when I ask my clients to describe their relationship, they invariably say, “I’m with a fantastic partner.
