Dating can be hard if you are overweight, but it doesn’t have to be! Before you blame your weight on your lack of dates, there are some things you really need to consider. If you don’t like yourself or the way you look this is going to cause others to look at you the same way, so you need to completely change the way you see yourself.
Tip # 1: Your size doesn’t matter unless you let it.
If you focus on being overweight, and you are not happy with yourself, this dissatisfaction is going to come across loud and clear. This belief isn’t because of any one factor or the fact that anyone told you you are too big to love. It is because you choose to believe it. Change the way you see yourself.
Tip # 2: Don’t let the opinion of others define you.
Yes, there are going to be a lot of people that just don’t like fat people for no reason other than the fact that they can’t get past your size. On the same note, there are many, many people who absolutely hate skinny people. Why? Who knows! It is just human nature-or maybe they are just wired this way. It is not you in particular, so avoid these people if you can.
Tip # 3: Be honest about yourself.
If you are one of the millions of people who turn to online dating sites never try to be someone you aren’t. Don’t disguise yourself or lie about what you look like. This is going to lead to major disappointment once you are found out-and you will be! Relationships are built on trust, and if you lie right away you are ruining your chances of a happy relationship.
Tip # 4: Never settle for less when you can have more!
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the first date is going to be the only one you will ever get, especially if that person doesn’t treat you with respect. Don’t be afraid to cut the ties and move on. No date is better than one that makes you unhappy. You deserve better and someone is out there who will love you the way you should be loved.
Tip# 5: Dress for success.
Always look your best no matter what you are doing! You will feel at the top of your game and you will be showing everyone that you care about yourself and the way you look. Plus, you will feel fabulous! Don’t hide your body under baggy, ill-fitting clothes. (This doesn’t mean you have to run out and spend tons of money on new outfits however.) People around you will see that you take pride in your appearance even if you are just heading to the local coffee shop.
Attracting a date and keeping him or her interested depends on you, yourself. Once you show that you place true value on yourself you will have no trouble with the opposite sex, your life will become fuller, and you will be able to find happiness.
