People Bully Couple Because She Is Big And He Is Thin


Gloria Shuri Nava, who makes YouTube videos, and her boyfriend Ali met online. Ali contacted her after he watched some of her videos; they began talking, and then dating. They were perfectly happy with each other – but other people had a problem with that. They couldn’t go out in public without getting mean comments and being bullied – all that only because she is overweight, and Ali is thin!

After one and a half years, Gloria finally had enough. She wrote an essay to her bullies, asking them to stop judging them because of superficial things: We’ve been dating for 18 months, and wherever we go – whether we’re walking hand in hand through the mall, airport, or down the street in his hometown (Glasgow, Scotland) or mine (San Jose, California) – we get confused looks that say, “He can do better than her!”

And it wasn’t only when they were seen in public. People started to leave comments on her YouTube channel, too. Some think that she isn’t good enough for him, and that he is “doing her a favor”, or that he must be blind; others praise him for being with her “despite” her looks. None of them ever consider that he might actually think that she’s beautiful the way she is! Many of Gloria’s ex-boyfriends had ended the relationship not because of her looks, but because of the bullying.

Luckily, this isn’t going to happen with Ali. He and his family are completely on Gloria’s side, and Ali is determined to stick with her, whatever people may think of that. Gloria says that he “makes me feel like I’m good enough all of the time” – and that is what a relationship should be about, after all! Let’s hope they won’t let other people’s narrowmindedness destroy their own happiness. Stay strong and in love, Gloria and Ali!
