The Dating Game: 5 Tips for Full Figured Women.

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( Ok, so here is the thing – plus size women are sexy as hell! We get a lot of flak because people don’t understand us but when it comes down to it, the majority of plus size women have no issues finding love.

Now, I am not saying that it is easy because let’s be real, dating, in general, is an involved and, at times, intimidating process. There’s the meeting the individual, the awkward conversations, the not knowing how you’re coming off to the other person and thus, the judging. For some people, it’s just not a fun thing to do and the misconception is that plus size women are the main segment of the population with the most dating troubles. It’s a notion that’s just not true.

So if you are plus sized and perhaps have reservations or even embrace some of the lies associated with dating as a larger person, here are some tips to help you get yo life. 


This is the number one most important thing about being a woman period. You have to know and believe that you are worthy because I promise that you are. I will admit that it can take some time to get to a place where you have unshakable confidence. Society is good at making those who don’t fit their mold feel bad about that. But when you’re dating, no matter what, be confident. Know that you most definitely bring something to the table.

Online dating

I know that some people feel this option is for those who can’t get a man in real life but that is so far from the truth. Online dating is a great way to meet potential mates and in today’s world, there are websites for all kinds of interests, including plus size women. I met my significant other online and it’s been five years.

Dress the Part

I am a big proponent of dressing top-notch, no matter your size. There are so many retailers that cater to plus-size women and most of them have trendy clothing comparable to straight-size offerings. Go shopping and get an outfit that you like. Not one that you feel you should like because you’re a big girl. I’m talking about clothes that you really love and that you’ll feel comfortable in during your date. And once you have your perfect outfit, don’t forget to accessorize. Look for pieces of jewelry that will complement your outfit, and pair it with a beautiful perfume scent, that you can get from somewhere like True Pheromones, to complete your look. Confidence comes when you wear what makes you comfortable, so be stylish and fashion-forward while doing it.

Don’t Be Afraid to Walk Away

This is a big one. Please know that you don’t have to settle for someone just because you’re not a size four or fit some unfair societal norm. Too many times good, quality, beautiful full figured women feel that they have to take the first guy that “gives them some attention.” Don’t fall into that trap. You are worthy and because you are worthy, you can have the guy that you really want.

Recognize the signs

The sad truth is that some men fetishize big girls and that is not a good thing. If there are any signs of this and it makes you uncomfortable, walk away. You deserve pure and honest love.

These are just a few tips to get you through the dating game. Have fun, be yourself and most of all, know your worth.
