Are there any good dating services?

Are there any dating services special for plus size people?

I have looked through many services and whenever I told someone my weight, they said no thanks. It's very frustrating going through all this trouble and would be so easy to just meet someone who likes big girls.

I'm not looking for a man, I got one that I love dearly, but my sister needs a man and she can't handle any more rejection and heart ache!

Where do you live, I have a brother who is looking for a nice woman, weight is not an issue with him. He has just lost over 100 lbs himself so he knows the struggle. He is the greatest man and very handsome too.I do not understand why he can not find himself a good woman. He has a good job, makes good money, loves kids. Has a good tender heart. If I was single he would be my kind of man!

www.eharmony.com - it's Christian based and you take this big long quiz about yourself and they match you only with others who would be compatible and its all technical - but I know of some who have really good luck with it - in fact I was doing it for a month and having good luck until I met my boyfriend and if for some reason him and I don't work out I'll do it again - they match you based on the major things that successful realtionships need - and you can set up your own regional area on how far you want to travel etc. I just did a local region that gave me matches up to 150 miles around my area. Its kind of expensive - but well worth it!

Maggie-If you check out bbw dating on a search you will find many dating online services. I dated a guy from bbwdatefinder.com at one time. There are many of these services and there are guys who expect and want to meet big beautiful women.

I tried eHarmony, but had the same problems there as I did on all the others. Once they find out how big you are, they drop you like a hot potato.

Hey there Maggie~

Another dating service for BBW would be www.bbpeoplemeet.com. I'm actually trying it myself. My sister paid it for me with an online check for 9.95 a month or something like that. I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try. I've been a member for about 2 weeks and I do get alot of flirts and all, but haven't found any to fit me yet. Maybe I'm being just too picky. LOL. I have no idea. There are some good looking men there too. When you first sign up, you'll get to see who's viewing you, but you can't see who flirts or sends messages, which makes you just wanna pay for the dang thing. LOL.

Anywho, let me know if you try it out, I'll add you to my buddies list. I still haven't tried the chatting part yet. You gotta have a buddy to do that. LOL. I was getting all kinds of chat requests when I didn't have a membership, now that I have one, no one ever wants to chat with me. :) Haha. It's a pretty cool site though.

La_madam, I'm interested in your brother too! Haha. We might have to have an auction here for him huh?

      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.
