If you're a guy who prefers curvy or plus-sized women, but you're not sure how to meet hot, big women, you're not alone. While the American cultural ideal of beauty is often seen as thin and blonde, plenty of men prefer big, beautiful women — BBWs for short. If you're interested in meeting lovely, larger ladies, use these tips.
- Use a dating site that is geared towards BBWs and their admirers. The internet makes all kinds of dating easier. Many big, beautiful women choose online dating over the bar scene, and an abundance of sites that cater to BBWs and the men (and women) who love them exist. Check out sites like BBW Personals Plus, BB People Meet, Large and Lovely Connections, or the amusingly-named Chubby Fishing. These sites offer an array of potential matches in a wide variety of body sizes, and some also allow BHMs — Big, Handsome Men — to put up profiles as well. Take the time to craft a great profile, browse profiles of available women, and make contact!
- Check out a BBW club. If you'd rather meet women in person, check out a club that caters to BBWs and their admirers. Places like Long Beach, California's Club Bounce create a body-positive environment where you are sure to meet any number of curvy beauties. For a listing of BBW clubs around the world, check out the listing at BBW Northwest. You'll also find plus-size themed club events and promotions in addition to clubs that cater to the plus-size population.
- Check out a meet up or other BBW social event. Maybe clubs aren't your scene, or your area isn't lucky enough to have a BBW club. Try going to a BBW Meet Up or other social event geared toward people in the plus-size or body-acceptance movements. BBW Northwest's directory, MeetUp.com, and the Chunk E-Nation Yahoo group are all excellent resources. You can attend everything from a meet up in a bookstore to a beach outing or a barbecue depending on what's being organized in your area. Because these events create a body-positive and welcoming environment, they're a fun way to get to know people.
No matter how you choose to meet the plus-size beauty of your dreams, it's important to remember good dating etiquette. Don't act as if she's lucky to be getting romantic attention — while there is much fat-phobia in American society, there are also many men who love larger women, and your potential match may just have her pick! It's equally irritating for a plus-sized woman to feel fetishized or like you're with her solely because of her size. Let her know she's beautiful, and that you love her body, but don't turn her into a goddess or a sex object. Treat her like a lady!
