Top Tips for Dating a BBW

  • Be as proud of her body as she is. – You’re interested in Big, Beautiful Women because of those gorgeous curves. Don’t let anyone else’s tastes keep you from treating your BBW like the treasure she is.
  • Looking for someone to lose weight with? Move along. – Nothing is a bigger turn-off than someone who wants to change a person. If she loves the way she looks, you should too.
  • Support her goals  – You may have an itch to see your love looking even curvier. If she’d like that too, support her in finding that perfect curve. If she’d like to define her muscle a little bit, that’s fine too—It’s her choice, not yours.

How to Date a Big Beautiful Woman – Finding Single BBWs

If you’re seeking to date exclusively Big, Beautiful Women, it may be a challenge to meet news dates out and about. A BBW is a rare beauty, and the odds of multiple meet-cutes are slim. That doesn’t mean meeting a BBW who catches your eye will never happen in your day to day life, but there’s no “surefire” way to meet a Big Beautiful Woman by happenstance.

If you’re in a larger city, there may be group meet-ups or speed dating events tailored toward meeting BBWs, but if you’re not in a large city with a large population of single BBWs, you may have to try going online.

Meeting Big, Beautiful Women more frequently likely means a dating site or app that will connect you with plenty of single sexy, curvy women looking for someone who loves them for who they are. This could mean a site specifically for BBWs, or it could mean setting search filters for the curviest of curvy. While there’s more to a woman than just her body, a picture is worth a thousand words, and her profile pics will immediately let you know if she’s your kind of woman.

Pros of Dating a BBW

  • Dating a confident woman. – There’s so much societal pressure for women to be slim, muscular, and in traditional supermodel mode. We all know that there’s more than one shape that’s beautiful, and dating a woman who calls herself a BBW is a surefire way to find a woman who knows her curves are beautiful. Big, Beautiful Woman is a compliment, and she won’t waste her time with anyone who doesn’t understand that.
  • Know she’ll accept you for who you are, too  – Women have a type, too, and she’ll know from the start whether you’re her physical type or not. Just as she’s proud of her body, she’ll likely expect that you’re proud of your own. Be yourself, and let the sparks fly.
  • You may find it easier to get comfortable  – If you’re dating a BBW, she knows who she is. There’s no need to talk around it. While she’s not everyone’s type, she knows off the bat she’s your type, so there’s no need for an icebreaker there.
  • Let’s face it—she’s gorgeous! – Looks aren’t everything, but if you’re looking for BBWs to date, you like a curvy woman. There’s no need to “settle” for a skinnier woman when there are BBW stunners to catch your eye.

Challenges of Dating a BBW

  • BBWs are hard to find  – Outside of a large city, it may be tough to find your curvy dream date living nearby. Even so, you two may not hit it off. This is where a good dating site or app comes in handy—it’s never bad to have choices.
  • Some people just won’t get it – Some people are so locked in to society’s expectations that some of your friends might not understand the appeal of dating a BBW. Ignore them! They’ve got their type, and you’ve got yours.
  • It can be hard not to fetishize  – You love curvy, confident women, but it doesn’t stop there. If you want a relationship to last, make sure you want to know the woman inside the body, too.
  • Know she’s got plenty of suitors  – Chances are you’re not the only potential date your BBW can meet. She knows she’s beautiful, and she knows there are plenty of fish in the sea. Treat her with respect or she’ll cast her fishing rod again.

FAQ for Dating a BBW

  • Is it okay for me to comment on my date’s body? Feel free to let her know you think she’s gorgeous, but be a gentleman. Leave the dirty talk for later—if you get to that point. There’s no need to be crass, even if you think you’re being complimentary.
  • Will she mind if I’m a little on the larger side, too? Maybe, maybe not. You have a type, and she does too. You won’t know until you meet. Plenty of women, BBWs and otherwise, care more about brains than brawn, but just she’s big and beautiful doesn’t mean that’s her type, too.
  • What do I say to my friends who don’t “get it?” – Nothing. She may not be their type, but that’s not what matters—BBWs are your type. If your friends are so shallow that they can’t get past a curvy figure, they’re probably not friends worth your time.
  • What’s the best place for a first date with a Big Beautiful Woman? Any place you’d go on any other first date! There can be a misconception that BBWs are food-obsessed, but that’s not always the case, and she’s got other interests, too. If you’ve been chatting in advance, you know her hobbies and interests. Plan accordingly.
