I was in 2 long term relationships, my marriage of ten yrs, then 7 yrs with a man I met on Match. Due to being sick and having gained a lot of wt the past 2 yrs, I have had zero interest in dating. Then my GF started dating someone she met online and she hasn't had a BF in 30 years! Worried 30 yrs could easily slip by, I decided to try "fat match", a site for plus sized people. Not one of those sites where men fetishize large women, I don't intend to stay large and that's just not my thing.
So far, so good. Got a few emails, but some of the people are very far away so that seems pointless. I emailed one man who loves dachshunds since I do too. Who knows, this may be an effort in futility. I don't know any men personally who are attracted to overweight people, so nothing may happen. Just happy to put myself back out there.
