I’ve been donating blood for 2 years now. I’m trying my best to do it every 3 months. Beside it’s healthy, I’m proud of my self because I can do little thing to help people.
And here the problem came. I dated a guy from another country. He was a nice and caring person. Before I dated him, I knew that he wanted a nice physically lady. We agreed to turn my appearance to his standard slowly.
After 2 months, he asked me to lose my weight for 5-8kg. I was 50kg at that time. For some people it might be easy, but not for me.
-I’ll share it next time-
At first I was joking, and said that as a blood donator I had minimal weight, unfortunately I had to keep my weight at least 50kg. Honestly I had no idea about my minimal weight to be a blood donator. But then he said something shocking. He asked me to STOP donating and work on my appearance. He said in the future there would only be me and him.
I was speechless. I tried to understand how could he ask me to stop donating blood just because of my appearance? How could he think that appearance was more important than humanity?
Everything changed in my mind. Prince Charming turned into ash. I couldn’t (didn’t want to) deal with people who think that way. I prefer and proud to be myself. If he couldn’t accept me, he could find another doll.
Now everything’s back to normal. I’m still being single, still donating blood every 3 months, and happy. I hope my Mr. Right still waiting out there.
