SO MUCH THIS.

I knew my husband was the one for me when I realized that for the first time in any relationship, I was 100% completely myself with him. I didn’t have to fake anything. I could be silly, ridiculous, stupid, make mistakes, look like heck, and he still looked at me like I was the only girl in the world. 

This is what you should be looking for. THIS is what it should mean when someone says “don’t settle.”

From the article: My Girlfriend Weighs More Than Me - So What? 

It’s not every day that you see a fit guy dating a bigger girl.

So when my girlfriend Gloria Shuri Nava wrote an essay about being overweight and dating a fit guy for Yahoo! Shine, I expected some controversy. What I didn’t expect were people talking about our relationship all over the world—even the ladies on The View had an opinion!

Living in Scotland, I saw the story before Gloria— it went live while she was still asleep in San Fransisco. In just a few hours, it got a crazy number of comments (today, there are almost 12,000) and shares on Facebook (3,000 and counting).

Gloria and I deal with prejudice on a daily basis, so we had braced ourselves for an onslaught of harsh comments. But surprisingly, the first batch was overwhelmingly positive. There were notes of encouragement from other plus-sized women and thinner men who said they found nothing odd about us as a couple.

Talk Dirty

I string words like beads
onto threads of ideas
and tie them to
the tip of my tongue.
I want to pull them out
one by one,
drop them in your ear
when your lips
are pressed against
the soft spot
on my neck
that makes me sigh,

but there is a moment
between the rise and fall
of our bodies
when flesh becomes a
boundary to be broken
and desire ceases
to be ethereal
and words feel plastic
and small and clumsy 
and break against my teeth.
