'MBFFL' fans convinced Whitney Thore's French boyfriend is 'not interested' in her
'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' fans are having second-hand embarrassment for Whitney Thore after watching her being very pushy in making her relationship with her French tutor work. Following her split from Chase Severino, Whitney was single and lonely. Thanks to the pandemic, she couldn't even step out and get into the dating pool.
But luckily for her, she found her new man in the most unexpected place- a language learning website. She signed up to learn French on a website and ended up hitting off with her tutor. The two began flirting with each other and 'MBFFL' star quickly developed feelings for her tutor. Before even meeting him, Whitney began talking about marriage and kids with her mystery French man.

'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' star Whitney mocked for turning it into a 'manhunt' show
The recently aired episode featured Whitney telling her French man that the travel restrictions were gradually being lifted between France and America. She then casually asked her boyfriend if he wanted to come down to meet her. As soon as Whitney suggested that there was a long awkward pause. Her mystery French man tried to temper down Whitney's enthusiasm about them possibly meeting by telling her that he would think about it.
While ending the phone call with him, Whitney added that she missed him and would miss him on her trip. He once again subtly tried to play it cool by telling Whitney to enjoy her trip and focus on it instead of thinking about him. When fans watched the exchange between the duo, many couldn't help but point out that her mystery French man might not be interested in her.
A fan wrote on Instagram, "Long pause. He’s not interested." Another fan commented, "He’s just not that into you”. (The whole thing is scripted now. Though they certainly have the awkward part down pat).." "And so the drama starts u can tell he’s not into her. It’s like she’s forcing herself on him," added a fan. Another fan pointed out, "He's not into you. If he were, he'd have already booked the trip." "I think he’s not into her she barely started talking to him and brought up marriage you have to go slow for fillings to happen at least that’s the way I am she needs to slow down and know that not everybody it’s going to feel the same way," echoed a fan.
Whitney too sensed her man's lack of enthusiasm about meeting her and wondered in her confessional if she was 'being stupid' or making a huge mistake. Despite what is shown on the show, looks like things worked out between the couple eventually as Whitney did fly down to France to meet her Parisian boyfriend and posted photos on her Instagram. She even posted a lengthy post calling out trolls for picking on her relationship with the mystery French man. She wrote, "Nah, but for real, the amount of comments and DMs and tweets I’ve gotten from viewers assuring me that this man is embarrassed of me and does not care about me is confusing." "I just spent 6 weeks with him in the planet’s most-visited country, and as you can see, we are clearly out in public at one of the world’s biggest tourist attractions…but because he doesn’t want his face shown on TV to millions of people around the world, he must be embarrassed of me? There’s a big difference between being in public with someone versus choosing to put your identity on display on the internet and TV for people to rip apart. If he was ever doubting his decision to be anonymous in these arenas, comments like these only validate it."
"Can’t y’all let someone be happy? I’ve had 8 serious relationships — the “public” has only seen 3 of them (I had 30 years of life before TV, imagine that!) and I’ve dated some shitty dudes and had heartbreaks, but I also do not doubt that I have been loved deeply and fiercely and above all, I know that I deserve to be loved.," she added.
