Dating sites chubby women
Honestly, online dating is incredibly appearance focused.A large majority of men won't even consider dating someone bigger than 'average' or many won't even consider someone of average size (according to their profile data). OG seems very self-aware and reflective, so I am sure she has considered this.You will meet people wether you are overweight or not.That's probably not the issue you should be focusing on at the moment though.I found online dating to be an emotional roller coaster, something I had to carefully manage. I will preface by saying that living in inner Sydney, most people I know are skinny.Yet, my best friend is what you can call "chubby" and she is in a very happy relationship with an attractive, decent man. No matter your size, shape or look it's a numbers game.I had a friend of mine try and she is heavier and had success.The guys loved her but she wasn't into them in the end. In my group of friends, there is 5 of us trying online dating. I am overweight and I am having more success with meeting men and getting second dates than the slim girls.
Men who are dating often love curves and don't focus on our perceived faults.
I feel a lot more confident when I am looking my best and that definitely helps while on a date! It's not the time to be thinking about online dating. This is the last thing you need to be thinking about. Focus on you and building your self esteem up based purely on you.
Have you considered speed dating as an alternative to online dating? OG, I'd see a counsellor about your feelings around being fat. I've read three threads now this week, started by you, focussed on 'fat'.
Surely there is so much more to you than your weight. I would think a truly wonderful partner would be more interested in who you are. He doesn't have a 'fat fetish' he just liked me - individually - as a human. When you've regrouped and got your headspace together again you'll know how to 'get out there'.
Even though I often felt overweight when dating, I just tried to forget about it.
But that's not to say that there aren't men out there that aren't so focused on body size, but the odds IMO are reduced. To use a crass term, sometimes the best way to get over a man is to get under another. OG, I think a lot of the angst with size and online dating is the fact that some people are not honest about it, use old pictures or funny angles. If you are just honest and upfront, with realistic pictures, I am sure you won't have any dramas. In high school a guy and I would just get together. I have no idea so before heading into the world to date again I'm d like to research it a bit.
