Plus Size Online Dating Tips

  1. Practice self-acceptance: Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and when you look at yourself, it doesn’t help if you internally cringe at the idea of dating. You would be amazed to find the number of people who like their ladies to be curvy, and be proud about it! So accept yourself for who you are…love comes in all shapes and sizes. Give yourself a chance before you expect others to give you a second chance.
  2. Don’t assume what others think about you: who cares, it is not like you can make and regulate everyone’s thinking. So don’t even try, those are forbidden grounds. Rather, why not concentrate on how you can feel attracted to yourself…no it is not kinky. Only if love yourself enough to be attracted to yourself can you accept it when others give you genuine compliments. Or you will continue second guessing yourself and not even give the other person a chance! :-(
  3. Be honest: be it while posting photos of yourself online, or talking to the other person. Don’t pretend to be something you are not, because the other person might not love the pretentious you and you don’t leave any scope for them to know and fall for the REAL you.
  4. Revise your self-descriptions in a positive way: If you are curvy, be bold and appreciate your curves…because only a chosen few are really blessed with gorgeous curves. Throw your negative self portrayal right out of the door and embrace a more positive attitude towards yourself. Unless YOU feel positively about your image, how can you expect someone else to look beyond the negative image you portray?
  5. Accept the idea of rejection: but don’t overrate it. Rejection has nothing to do with your plus size status. Even Angelina Jolie can get rejected! And don’t let the prospect of rejection stop you from giving yourself a chance at companionship and love.
  6. Learn how to accentuate the positive: Get over the so-called negatives and showcase your positive aspects. It can be your curves (no pun intended-they are genuinely gorgeous), your talents, your success…all the positives that make you.
  7. Dress for dating success: Don’t hold back when you dress up, but moderation is the key. Flaunt your best features and make up for the not so flattering ones. It is all about camouflage! :-) But dress comfortably, that is way more important than dressing up.
  8. Don’t settle for less: Never underestimate yourself! And never settle for less than what you deserve. You are a marvelous person and don’t you dare settle for anyone and everyone. Choose the person who treats you the way you deserve- like a queen.Now that you have the hot tips for dating at your fingertips, just go for it girl!! :-)

9 Frustrations Of Dating While Plus-Size

Dating is not my forte. I’m bad at everything from the awkward conversations with people I don’t know, to mingling uncomfortably with strangers at parties. It’s not that I’m an introvert or anti-social (alright, fine, I’m anti-social), it’s just that over the years I’ve found that dating, as a plus-sized woman, is more of an exercise in patience and frustration than it is one in romance.

1. Your Body Becomes A Sexual Fetish

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending the evening with someone so shallow they’re the human equivalent of a puddle. Although everyone is attracted to different people, and there’s nothing wrong with that, there’s nothing worse than being fetishized for your body type (and nothing’s less romantic than being leered at you while you eat your food). Being attracted to plus-sized individuals is great (there’s even a strip club for BBWs in Vegas), but only valuing them for their weight and not for who they are is a big problem. It’s not being body positive and it’s not forward thinking — rather, it’s dehumanizing and not OK.

2. People Automatically Think You Put Out

I remember one time back in high school when I was having supper at a friend’s house. I’d mentioned that I’d seen other plus-sized women happily dating, and I couldn’t figure out why I was having such tough luck finding myself someone. My friend’s mom simply answered, “because they put out and you don’t.” It bothered me then and it’s continued to bother me since. This idea that plus-sized individuals are only in relationships because they’re more open to having sex is completely wrong and beyond offensive. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who believe this stereotype, and I’ve been on more dates than I can count where I’ve ended the night almost as soon as it’s started because my companion thought buying me dinner and being affectionate meant they were entitled to something afterwards.

3. Picking An Outfit Can Be A Nightmare

Getting ready for a date can be tricky for even the most fashionable of us, but it can feel downright impossible when you’re fuller-figured. If you wear something tight-fitting or revealing, well, see the second point on this list. But if you wear something more conservative or baggy, then you’re not just a prude, you’re a prude who’s ashamed of her body. And people can be mean and judgmental about it. I remember more than one occasion where my date tried to make me feel ashamed of what I’d worn because it wasn’t “appropriate” for someone my size (everything from short skirts and tight pants to tankinis at the pool can garner this response). Which is ridiculous because plus-sized women can wear any trend. I think it goes without saying that none of the aforementioned people made it to the second date.

4. People Think You Don’t Have Standards

There seems to be this idea in North American culture that if you’re plus-size then it’s impossible for you to have standards. The (faulty) logic is that if you really had them, then you wouldn’t be overweight in the first place because your standards for your own body would be different. While that makes absolutely no sense to those of us with a brain, it seems that this can be a hard concept for some people to understand. Just because I’m plus-size doesn’t mean I set the bar low. I take pride in my appearance, my work, and every other aspect of my life. And I expect my partner to do the same. Just because I’m plus-size doesn’t mean that you can wear sweatpants to a fancy restaurant when meeting my parents.

5. People Assume You’re Lonely

I’ve found that something about being plus-size causes people to assume that, if you don’t have a partner, then you must be lonely. As much as I love my family, there’s nothing more annoying than their excited little cheers when they find out I’m going on a date. Actually, scratch that. There’s nothing more annoying than their “about time-s,” “finally-s,” and “now you won’t die alone-s.”

6. People Think You Hate Your Body

Maybe it’s just me, but the biggest turn off during a night out is when someone gives me a backhanded compliment about my weight. I’ve heard everything from, “I think it’s so great you’re confident enough to wear a dress like that… at your size,” to, “don’t worry, I think you’re beautiful… for a plus-size woman.” I am beautiful, and it is great that I’m confident enough to wear clothing that makes me feel good about myself, but that has nothing to do with my weight. Compliments like these aren’t really compliments; they’re thinly veiled insults that are designed to make you feel bad about a body you’re apparently supposed to dislike.

7. Prepare To Be Catfished

Maybe it’s just my personal experience, which it very well could be, but the number of times my dates have been less than honest about their appearance is staggering when compared to the experiences of my slimmer friends. I once had a guy who claimed to be my age, but when we met face to face he looked like he was old enough to have fathered a child my age, if not older. I suspect it’s because these types of people assume that, as a plus-sized woman, I must be so desperate for love that it’s OK for them to lie about their looks. Fun fact though; it’s not. So stop.

8. You’ll Feel Uncomfortable Ordering

For a lot of plus-sized individuals, myself included, there’s this unspoken anxiety that comes when ordering food. For example, if you order a salad then you might think everyone’s judging you for being that “fat chick” who’s trying to lose weight. But if you order a hamburger then you’re a “fat chick” who should be ordering a salad. There’s a stigma that comes with being plus-size and eating out in public that’s frustrating, and often humiliating. I remember this one date where I ordered a dessert after a particularly large main course, and my date said “You can really pack it away, can’t you?” It was horrible, and made me feel ashamed of myself. I paid my bill, left, and drank a bottle of wine while sobbing over episodes of Friends. It was one of the worst nights of my dating career, and it’s made me nervous to order food on a date ever since.

9. They Think You’ll Settle For Anyone

Much like assumptions about being lonely, or trapped in a vicious cycle of self-loathing, people are quick to assume that because you’re plus-size you’ll settle for anyone. Maybe it’s because they think you’re scared you won’t find “the one,” or that you’ll “die alone.” And maybe they’re right. But I’d rather get old on my own than with someone who makes me feel badly about myself. And that’s a “happily ever after” in my books any day.

Set non-scale goals.

Don’t let the scale be your only barometer of success — look for other signs that you’re getting stronger and slimmer. Have you lost an inch off your waist? Are you using heavier weights than you were last month? Can you hold a 10 seconds plank longer? Do you see a thinner profile when you look in the mirror? “Focus on non-scale victories, like how you’re feeling during the workouts and if you have more energy during the day,”.

That includes emotional victories, too, such as feelings of pride and confidence following a tough workout. The keys to meeting fitness goals are to stay positive and not get discouraged. Stay consistent and be patient — results will come. “After a tough workout, a lot of people feel like a new and improved version of themselves, regardless of how much weight they have lost,” .
