I think your ethnicity and culture plays a large part in your experience of LA. It's not a terrible place, overall, I agree, but as a fat white woman who didn't grow up here but chose to move here on my own, my experience has been very different. LA hasn't been a fat-friendly place for me and I think it can sometimes be an unfriendly place for a lot of people who move here from other locations. A former co-worker of mine from northern Cali, a very tall, thin, athletically-built woman with long, curly strawberry blonde hair couldn't find a partner here after years of looking, and you'd think with her 'socially acceptable' body shape, she'd have it easier. She just kept meeting a lot of flaky men, or guys just looking for a casual hook-up. She finally met a guy in Wisconsin who seemed to like her for who she was and moved there to continue her relationship with him. Last I heard, things were going great with them. If I could handle the cold, snow and extremely humid summers, I'd go to Wisconsin in a heartbeat. But I'm looking for more temperate climes and will hopefully find one that's not LA in the near future.
