When the time came to remove clothing I knew that as he had already accepted me dressed, then undressed would only be better.Men who are dating often love curves and don't focus on our perceived faults.
If I'm entirely honest I don't know that I might not just want a bit of sex for now.You will meet people wether you are overweight or not.That's probably not the issue you should be focusing on at the moment though.Although I have only ever been with XH consensually.You are fresh out of an abusive relationship, you need to build yourself up a bit before jumping back in.Personality, brains and conversational skills count for much more on a date than a slim figure in my experience.
I am honest about my size and my photos are current.
But that's not to say that there aren't men out there that aren't so focused on body size, but the odds IMO are reduced. To use a crass term, sometimes the best way to get over a man is to get under another. OG, I think a lot of the angst with size and online dating is the fact that some people are not honest about it, use old pictures or funny angles. If you are just honest and upfront, with realistic pictures, I am sure you won't have any dramas. In high school a guy and I would just get together. I have no idea so before heading into the world to date again I'm d like to research it a bit.
I've already figured stuff out for if I need some casual thing.
I feel a lot more confident when I am looking my best and that definitely helps while on a date! It's not the time to be thinking about online dating. This is the last thing you need to be thinking about. Focus on you and building your self esteem up based purely on you.
Have you considered speed dating as an alternative to online dating? OG, I'd see a counsellor about your feelings around being fat. I've read three threads now this week, started by you, focussed on 'fat'.
I know in the past you said it doesn't bother you, but you make it a big point that it's. I've never met you so I don't know what you look like. You seem very focussed on it and unable to see past body size, please discuss how you perceive yourself and the negativity you associate around it with your counsellor.
