My suggestion is for the writers not being able to write short stories.
Try to think in terms of dating. When you first start dating someone you know little to nothing about that person. You maybe have 2 or 3 dates and thats it. It just didnt work out for whatever reason. You get to know that person a little bit. And the rest is a mystery.
Alot of people prefer to read a book instead of seeing it in a movie. We naturally form images in our mind when we read. So when you add in alot of details and character development the reader is still going to add more. So it is a no win situation if your desire is to give a 100% complete story. You just can't do it!
Just my opinion. That and $1.50 will get you a large cup of coffee.

Then an edit put them at 250 and 300. Then 200 and 250. And so on. I personally prefer women well over 300. But, and I apologize if I offend anyone, I want the women to be a relatable size . And yes I understand that height and body structure have alot to do with weight. I am trying to come up with a size so the reader can more accurately picture them in their mind.
I appreciate all opinions and suggestions. Thanks
by the way "second chances" is a working title

Play with some heights, weights and shapes and choose two you like.

By the way, you must drink crappy coffee...

You didn't happen to write for Friends, did you?

Always felt there should have been an episode with Monica where a girl liked her better when she was fat.

"The One Where Monica Dates A Feeder".
