Hey guys! Welcome back. I don’t think I have ever been so scared to share a post before, but I feel like this is important. I wanted to talk today about dating as a plus size individual because I know it is a topic that people like to read about and get advice on. And because I have some experience in this topic, I figured I would share my thoughts. So I wanted to give some tips on plus size dating that will hopefully help you.
Don’t hide yourself.
I used to hide myself in every way that I could. And I still do sometimes. However, I am slowly learning that if I hide myself I will never be comfortable enough to find someone. So I have to open up and not hide myself so much. And that is a big tip that I have. Don’t hide yourself. If you are online dating, post photos from you at all angles. If you are going on a date, wear what makes you feel good.
Be willing to take risks – even if it comes with rejection.
People are rejected all the time regardless of size, gender, or anything else. So don’t be afraid to take risks. Go with your heart and if it doesn’t work out, at least you know. Rejection is a part of life, but you will never know if you don’t at least try. So let your guard down and wear your heart on your sleeve. The more you try, the more likely you are to find your person.
Don’t settle for the first person who wants you. Go for the person you want.
You don’t have to settle for the first person who comes along. It’s great if it works out that way, but it’s not a guarantee. If you know what you want (or who you want), pursue that. Because you are worthy of great love and you deserve to have the person you want. So you don’t have to settle.
Be confident about who you are and what you bring to a relationship.
Everyone has different qualities and attributes that they bring to a relationship. So regardless of your size, don’t discredit all of the amazing things that you bring to a relationship. Be confident in who you are and why you are important. Because the right person will come along and be able to recognize that.
Ignore the voices in your head.
If you are anything like me, you probably have at least one voice in your head degrading you because of your size. Don’t let those voices win. Do what you want and what you are comfortable with. Give yourself a chance to have fun and be yourself. We have a limited amount of time on Earth, so we might as well make the most of it. Life is too short to let the voices in your head convince you that you are less than you are.
