My first relationship happened when I was 18. We matched on Tinder and spent the following month doing everything people in relationships do, just without the label. This casual mindset was not my choice, and neither was the constant feeling of disappointment. I yearned to be respected; I knew it wasn’t right for him to sleep through our dates nor return my texts for days at a time. I wanted a real relationship, one where I wouldn’t have to beg for clarity, but as a fat, young woman, I believed this lesser form of relationship was my only option, so I obliged.
