Blaine never thought that he would see the day for a Gay Bachelor to be on TV, and even less so to be one of the participants.
Time does change, he supposes as he arranges his cufflinks upon arrival at the villa.
The host welcomes him and explains the general principle of tonight : re-do the arrival to film his impression, meet the other participants, private interview, meet the Bachelor, private interview, get settled, goodnight and good luck.
He can go with it.
Blaine knows why they casted him: he’s a romantic, handsome (in his own ways) and slowly rising to a sort of stardom.
Blaine is at this peculiar point in his career where some people know of him, but don’t know him.
Funny thing is, he recognizes some of the other candidates and smiles at them–always good to have a friendly face in this sort of environment he supposes.
A tall man enters the room, and for a second, Blaine assumes that it’s “the” Bachelor.
Everything about the man screams “I should be courted by every breathing person” : tall, strong shoulders, proud stance, impeccable outfit–Blaine vows there and then to win him over because that … specimen?
• YES, ‘Skinny’ girls are beautiful and stunning and gorgeous. That doesn’t make girls with other body types any less beautiful and stunning and gorgeous.
• It’s ok to feel bad about your body, you’re not a bad person for hating yourself.
• Your body is literally there to keep you alive, it’s not there to please anyone else or meet their expectations.
• U DO NOT NEED TO TRY AND CHANGE UR BODY TO MEET SOMEONE ELSE’S EXPECTATION OF HOW YOU SHOULD LOOK
• You and your body are deserving of love literally no matter what!!!!
• I LOVE YOUR BODY (no matter what your body is like) but guess what??? It doesn’t matter! It doesn’t matter whether I love your body or someone else hates it or whatever. Any judgements passed by other people are irrelevant to your self love!!!! Validation can feel good, but it’s important not to base your self worth in other people’s opinions of you.
Your body in the morning will not look the same as when you’re well-fed and period-bloated in the evening. THAT’S OK! UR BODY IS STILL BEAUTIFUL, nothing changes.
I am tired of girls hating themselves, COMPARING themselves to each other, aspiring to only one ‘ideal body’ which for most girls (at wherever weight) doesn’t encourage realistic proportions.
Your body is amazing and worthy of love.
