Of course she hates dating, everyone who feels entitled to the cream of the crop while only contributing shit does.

But surely this "quirky fat girl" thing will work out for her like it does every other fat girl. Oh wait...

Very few pictures scream "I'm single" quite like this one does.

The technical term to introduce here is "kindchenschema," a term coined by German Nobel Prize laureate Konrad Lorenz. It literally means "small child pattern" and was developed over Lorenz's career as a prominent zoologist.

There are a specific set of physical features that make up what we commonly refer to as "cuteness," such as big eyes, small nose, rounded forehead and so on. Babies and young animals develop these features early-on as a defense mechanism of sorts.

Since infants (both human and otherwise) cannot yet fend for themselves, these features are designed to activate the prefrontal cortex in adults (the part of the brain responsible for decision-making) and causes an innate desire to provide and care for them.

What you are experiencing is a cognitive dissonance resulting directly from kindchenschema and your knowledge of fats. You instinctively know how human infants are presented when they are in need -- wrapped in a bundle, supine, helpless. The addition of kindchenschema would usually be enough to push your brain to say "hey, let's take care of this thing in front of us."

However, while this fat has presented itself as an infant, it possesses none of the kindchenschema required to trigger your prefrontal cortex and spur you to care for it. You are looking at a form that looks like it should be cared for, but you also see nothing that confirms you actually should.

To better understand this concept, take a look at this Oreo. Now imagine that the cream is actually toothpaste. See what I mean?

This dissonance is what's creeping you out -- it is literally a ham trying to deceive you into taking care of it. Now you know why so many fats dress like toddlers and speak in a child-like tone of voice. It is a ploy to garner pity, attention and care.

You can't put all your effort into popping your collar bones out when you have a massive double chin. Gives the game away
