He Had to See for Himself

I was talking to this guy online when we figured out we worked for the same company, but in different offices. We started calling each other at work and sending inter-office notes. He finally asked me out and I sent him a face-only photo and I told him I was heavy. He said he didn't think so. I said, "Really, I'm fat, I gained a lot of weight after my divorce." He said he really liked me and he wanted to take me to see a movie and go to dinner. He picked me up and we went to the movie first, he got a huge Coke. We didn't talk, hold hands or kiss during the movie; he didn't even glance at me. When we got to the car he said the soda made him sick and he asked if he could take me home and not go to dinner. He apparently didn't believe me that I was fat and he wasn't attracted to me!! How upsetting.
