“I've always protected myself when it comes to love. And maybe that's the problem. By not letting myself get hurt now, it ripples into much bigger pain later.”
Carolyn Mackler, The Future of Us

“Never underestimate yourself”

“The Fat Girl Code of Conduct:

1. Any sexual activity is a secret. No public displays of affection.
2. Don’t discuss your weight with him.
3. Go further than skinny girls. If you can’t sell him on your body, you’d better overcompensate with sexual perks.
4. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever push the relationship thing. ”
Carolyn Mackler, The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things
