The first and most important thing in making plus size dating successful for you is confidence. If you are a plus size man or a plus size woman you both must still be confident in yourself. I hope you realize how huge that one thing is in your plus size dating life. Also, if you are a man or woman who is interested in a plus sized person, well you too must possess confidence as well.
After you have confidence, which is definitely something that is noticed by others with out you knowing that they notice it, you are now set to find the person you want to begin dating.
There are many ways to find a potential date. You see people every single day of your life, don’t you? Some of which may strike your fancy, right? Why not pick a day and decide to actually go up to one of the people that you find attractive. And for the record I don’t care if you are a plus size woman and the man you find attractive is skinnier then your 15 yr. old sister. Pick a day to decide to talk to him. Every man and woman in this world is attracted to a particular “type.” And it’s not fair for you to pre-judge what everyones type is. Is it?
OK so just start talking to him. Have a normal everyday conversation. If he’s interested in the least you’ll know. Look for smiling, look for actual interest in the conversation, look for eye contact, look for touching (ya know maybe he’s trying to make a point and he puts his hand on your shoulder to do so.) Look for those things. If you notice any of all of that, then you are one step closer to making plus size dating for you successful today. Here’s the deal…..some men and some women, regardless of how many clues you give them are just too shy to pick up on them and ask for a date. This is when you REALLY need your confidence to break through, ok? It’s OK for a woman to ask a man out on a date. I promise you this. Besides if you know he’s interested but he’s too shy or afraid to ask you out, how are you ever going to go on a date with him? You’re not, unless you take the initiative. So if you feel he’s interested and he’s just not asking you out or asking for your number, you’re going to have to do it. Just ask him if he’d like to get together for coffee or lunch sometime. That’s it. It’s that simple, I swear.
Now with the advice above that’s for finding someone anywhere that you are. But let’s say you are strictly interested in plus size women or plus size men. So what should you do now? Well, of course, they can be anywhere too but more importantly why not think about where you know they definitely ARE and where the other body types are NOT. You know like at plus size clothing stores! If you go to places where you know plus size men or women are that will sky rocket your plus size dating success.
