Gotta start somewhere…

So, hopefully you’ve read the “about me” section and you’re familiar with what’s going on here, but in case you haven’t, I’ll wait….

Okay, so I’ve been doing the online dating thing with mixed results. I say plainly in my profile that I am curvy (and the whole “curvy” discussion is one I plan to have here very soon) so I think that weeds out a lot of guys right off the bat. And I also have opinions and real interests and say I am a feminist, so there just might not be any hope! ha! But overall, I think it is a pretty engaging profile, if I do say so myself.

Right now, the only profile I have active is from OKCupid and it’s worked out the best overall – I’ve been on many dates, had one short relationship that ended in my heart getting a little stomped on, and found much entertainment value looking back at some of the weirdness. That might not be saying much, but I am still hopeful.

I tried paying for for a little while, but everyone there was too boring and straight laced and I got very little response. The one guy who wrote me specified in his profile that he was looking for someone skinny. I told him I was definitely not what he was looking for, but he said he was open because we had stuff in common. I met him for coffee, had lovely conversation, and promptly never heard from him again. Let’s just say I didn’t renew after the one month I paid for…

I even had a profile up at a couple of the bbw sites, those lasted about three days I think. There were so few guys on there with anything written in their profiles, and I got all sorts of crazy messages from people who had absolutely nothing in common with me and were rarely even in my area. Sure, the Saudi Arabian senior citizen who likes sports might very well be a nice guy, but I’m not into sports and I sunburn way too easily for the desert even if he wasn’t old enough to be my dad. The majority of them said intriguing things like “o baby u r hot” or “wanta hook up?” So yeah, those profiles were taken down quickly.

So, what online dating sites have worked for you? Any fat gals out there having some luck? What are your secrets?


I'm a chubby thirty-something gal looking for lust and love, sometimes on the internet...

Have something to say?
