It was a personal priority to make sure I included up-to-date full length photos so when I showed up in person my date actually got what they’d seen online. My authenticity wasn’t always reciprocated but I could sleep well at night back at Melrose Place.
I also did things to bust this big booty out of my comfort zone.
As soon as the wheels hit the tarmac an invisibility cloak descended over me and I was once again back to being undateable.
I knew this would happen before I booked my ticket but it’s just something I accepted as part of coming home.

Beverly Hills’ rolled up next to me in the The Beverly Centre parking lot, ‘The Mamas Boy’ flashed me his gold grill at a fashion show, and ‘The Plumber’ literally knocked on my door to fix the toilet. “Surely these guys only date you because they think you’re desperate and will sleep with anyone.” I hear some of you say. In Australia I’m always the butt of the joke – but in LA I was just a chick with a fabulous big butt (it took me decades to be able to acknowledge that).
Being a ‘big girl’ in the USA isn’t a deal breaker by any means – it’s a descriptor, not an insult.
So, do you know any single American guys who want to date me? I even launched my own 50 Fat Dates project as a way of documenting my experience in the plus size dating world. The only thing that was different was the location. My apartment was two blocks from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was like living in a real-life Melrose Place situation.The guy next door was a drag queen, another neighbour was a romance novelist/ science professor/female bodybuilder, the guy above me worked for movie studio, there was a photographer, bass guitarist, actor, luxury car salesperson and me. I was in the centre of the world’s biggest dream factory, but the reality was I was crafting my own dream through 50 Fat Dates.The purpose was to offer myself up as the guinea pig for plus size daters and report back on my experiences worts and all.I went through all the options dating had to offer including Tinder, speed dating, mixers, activity-based dating, and introductions from friends. I created profiles on a lot of online dating sites.
