You’ll have a better chance to catch the right fish and avoid a possible humiliation when meeting your date. Looking 20 lbs lighter on pics won’t be the key to keep him/her. Being rejected happens to all of us, no matter the shape or height. The person who values you because of your weight/appearance can’t be a good “friend”. There is no reason to blame rejection on yourself or your figure. Part of loving and accepting your body image is also to accentuate your physical assets. Don’t let peer pressure or the aesthetic side of our culture affect your dating game. Once you have built up your confidence, let it guide you.

The societal diktat of appearance has taken a toll on plus-size-figure men and women, including myself. The simple fact of feeling unattractive and unlovable can harshly undermine a person’s self-confidence.

The key to being attractive is, indeed, SELF-CONFIDENCE.

After the "dating" sessions conclude, participants take notes and score or rank each of the people they were paired up with.

When two people express a shared interest in each other, they then have the opportunity to exchange contact information and further pursue the relationship on their own terms.

Take a moment to look at yourself and think about ways to make yourself feel more attractive.

Men and women are quite different in their ways of dressing for dating success. Plus, the more you obsess about losing weight, the more frustrated you will be.

Confidence comes from wearing clothes that fit you, and feeling good about who you are.

The only thing that's necessary to feel confident in your bikini is choosing the right swimsuit for you, and developing self-confidence.

If you're a tough case like me: super nerdy, or really insecure, or just uncertain about where to begin, this program will save you a heap of time compared to what it's taken me so far.
