Will men look past your weight...

...if you have a pretty face? I'm talking about men who are ready for a relationship. I am recently divorced, ready to date, but I am self conscious about my weight (about 60 pounds overweight), but I have a pretty face. I smile and am very friendly and am always myself. I'm just hoping there's not much rejection and that men will be interested in me even though I am overweight. I am a confident woman even though it doesn't appear that way from the sound of this post.

I'm not joining a dating website for "fat girls"...just in case someone thinks to bring that up. I'm not 'that' overweight.

  • A good man will :) There is nothing more attractive than a beautiful smile and confidence, according to several of my male friends. Go get 'em!!!

  • The men that do look past that are trying to find a relationship that will last. I wish you luck b/c finding a man that looks past all of that is hard to find but when you do he is a keeper. You will know when you find the right one. The trick is to not look and he will be dropped in your lap.

  • some men don't care as much about how you look, just about your personality. some men prefer thicker women over skinny minnies. there's somebody for everyone lol

  • for the most part yes, the ones who won't, ya don't want anyway!!!

     It's really all about your personality- have fun and be confident.... i think being completely self-conscious all the time is more of a turn off

  • It is what is inside that counts! If they are not willing to take the time to get to know you that is inside from the don't need them. Who wants a "not too smart fella"? It is their lost! I am a firm believer in romance. You will meet Mr. Right when you are not thinking about it. I know that sounds crazee, but it is true!

  • well, I've certainly had luck having some interest while being overweight (100 pounds overweight !)....but I just didn't feel good about myself, so I lost'll find the right person, with or without the don't have to lose the weight to find someone....but, if you're self-conscious, maybe a weight loss is something you want to consider...and hey, if you start going to a gym or a park to workout, or runs on the street, maybe you'll meet mr. right doing the same thing and share a really great healthy common interest !
