BBW dating sites...



Recommended Posts

I was just reading someones post about a Jerky boyfriend and i was just wondering if any of you single ladies..or men have tired them? I didnt want to at first but a friend convinced me. Low and behold I met my current boyfriend on one and i couldnt be happier! hes a peach!

Of course now that most of us here are banded we might not be considered BBW for much longer :) ... but seriously it was one of the best things i ever did for myself in terms of self esteem and feeling good about how i looked and felt about myself (no matter what size). It made me realise that that not every man/woman wants an annorexic arm charm to love! I didnt have to pretend i was something i wasnt...and that can be hard..esp online. Not every guy i met was as wonderful as my bf...but i have to say everyone was an experience in its own! And each one took me one step closer to finding the man of my dreams (as corny as it may sound and I KNOW it sounds corny).

SOOOOO... im curious to hear if anyone else has had any experiences with dating online...if sooo- please share.

I met my husband online a little over 6 years ago now. Not at a dating site - at a webcam site. I was in South Carolina, he was in Australia. I now live in Australia and am happier than ever :)

I met my hubby online when I was 16 (I'm 25 now so that was almost 10 years ago) and we were good buddies. When I turned 19 he came over to the US to visit. I'm now living in Portugal and we have been married almost 2 years.

Well I am not a woman however I did meet my wife on the internet in late 1996. It was not a dating site just a chat cafe. I was here in Louisiana and she was in Norway. We met in person during the spring of 98 and were married December of 98 and have been together since. We now have a daughter.:)

Dawg and I met online in a chat room in the fall of 1998. Dawg lived in England and I lived here in Idaho. We spent hundreds of hours talking and getting to really know each other. He even spent lots of hours talking to my kids who were teens at that time. He and my 13 year old son grew very close. Dawg gave him much needed male support and advice during some tough adolescent times.

We met in person on April 21, 1999 when he flew over to stay with us for three weeks. I don't think we had one moment of awkwardness between each other. It was as if he'd returned home. And when he left, we all cried. In August, Dawg gave notice at his job, sold everything he had and came back to me on September 1st. We were married on September 21, 1999.

And no, we don't communicate with each other on computers from opposite ends of the house. Duh. We did our time communicating online and wouldn't go back to that for anything. We have a nice office with our desks side by side and we enjoy making friends and chatting with others online - together. Nuttin weird about that at all.

My husband and I met online. He is truly a wonderful, kind and understanding man and I would never have met him otherwise. We've been together 10 years, married for 6.

After my husband's mom died, his dad (who was in his early 70s) met a terrific woman online and got remarried.

So it really is possible to meet great people online and have the relationship work out!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
