Overweight people dating sites

Rated 4.11/5 based on 787 customer reviews

Once you accept your shape, then you can work within it.

Too many people who are concerned about their weight try to dress to conceal it, usually wearing clothes that are too big and loose.

Now, I’m going to be blunt: dating can suck when you’re fat.

Societal standards of beauty are not only arbitrary but often literally impossible to achieve without Photoshop and make-up and there are assholes out there who feel empowered to mock fat people with impunity.

The next key is simply to accept that your body is your body and your shape is your shape and there is only so much that you can do to change that.

You want fitted shirts rather than simple box-cuts; these will fit your build better instead of looking baggy and shapeless.

A low-carb diet might help you lose weight, but it’s not going to change your underlying frame; if you’re naturally compact and dense, then you’re not going to jog that away. I inherited the O’Malley shoulders and I’m naturally barrel-chested; no amount of dieting or jogging is going to make that smaller.

I’m always going to look more like a beer keg than Henry Cavill no matter what I do or don’t eat.

Every once in a while, I like to poll my readers on the Nerd Love Facebook Page and on Twitter to find out what issues they feel are holding them back when it comes to dating.

And the most common answer is: “I worry that I’m too fat to date.” I’ll be honest: I’m not surprised. According to the Center for Disease Control, 69% of adults 20 years old and over are overweight and 35% are considered obese.
