On speed dating skinny minny
By Lindsay Tigar In the four years I’ve been dating in New York City, I really thought I’d seen it all.
AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE is the true story of Cory and his family's decades-long battle for survival in the face of extraordinary difficulties and a maddening medical establishment.Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother--or even saving herself. Questions as to whether she was alive or dead when she hit the icy pavement result in her macabre nickname, Zombie Doe.But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. (Goodreads) "Kovac had seen more dead bodies than he could count: Men, women, children; victims of shootings, stabbings, strangulations, beatings; fresh corpses and bodies that had been left for days in the trunks of cars in the dead of summer. Unidentified and unidentifiable, she is the ninth nameless female victim of the year, and homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are charged with the task of not only finding out who Zombie Doe is, but who in her life hated her enough to destroy her.Guys, no need to worry about meeting a biggie-size chick “down-sizing” to an 8 like when you’re dating on-line. “women have to be held to a ”svelte“ standard, as they put it." data-reactid="24"As far as I can tell, there are no restrictions or requirements for the body type or clothing size of the men who sign-up for this event; only the women have to be held to a ”svelte“ standard, as they put it. This company has a similar sexist attitude toward men with another event titled "Size Matters,” where men are required to be 6'1” and taller and another event where only self-proclaimed “nerds” can sign up (and “beautiful” women who want to meet the next Bill Gates). There’s no size of those attributes, nor should there be. Sure, attraction is an important part of a healthy, sexy relationship. (Shocking, I know.) From aging to children and everyday stresses, maintaining a perfect physique isn’t manageable, much less much of healthy attitude to have toward your body.Sounds like this company is trying to make a niche for themselves as the most sexist, judgmental and stereotyping dating company in the city. But let’s take a second to list just a few of the reasons why hosting an event based on a woman’s size is ridiculous:1. Technically speaking, I’d be able to attend this event based on my size but luckily I have more self-respect for myself — and for women of all shapes — that I’d be thrilled to buy a drink for every man there, only to throw it in his face.4. And that’s where On Speed Dating is getting this whole process wrong: the foundation of a solid, sustaining relationship isn’t built on what you look like.
