    hello people

    I don't usually post in here, but I have a small problem. Basically I have met this girl, to me she seems pretty awesome, we've talked on the phone and she seems to like me (w00t). My friends say she is way out of my league.
    The problem arises here, she wants to meet up, that's cool. Thing is I am overweight, and I have been since I've finished my exams doing the appropriate things to lose weight. But still I feel this is going to be problem when I properly meet her. I have a feeling she does like me but feel my weight may get in the way. Boy, I regret those ice creams now :p:
    My question is really, girls, would you go out with an overweight guy?

    If she doesn't know maybe tell her and also that you are making an effort to lose the weight, she might support you for it.

    I wouldn't, out of personal taste, but a good friend of mine likes her guys to be a bit overweight, and she's a slim, good looking girl. Similarly, I have a friend who's in a very long term relationship with an overweight guy. My point being that it's a matter of taste for the girl in question. As already asked, does she know you're overweight?

    it depends on how overweight, a few extra pounds is OK.

    also you need to tell her before you meet up, maybe send her a pic or something.

    Well, I haven't met her as such I saw her at an interview we both, I'm pretty sure she saw me. Although at that time, we didn't know each other.

    a stone overweight is nothing - and she knows, so just try and relax


    (and work on slimming down.)

    As long as your slimming down and keeping everything in check, theres only one way that your weight is going and that's down. I wouldn't worry bout' it too much fella'.

    If you're trying to lose weight, make sure you do it for the right reasons. Your reasonings for losing weight should not be meeting her, it should soley be for yourself.

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated.

    Also I am going up to her place to meet her about an 1 hour away, because Im going up there for a week for another reason, but she might be coming down to where I live during August. Should I wait and see her in August or should I meet her as planned (about 2 weeks)?

    btw I just checked, I'm 2stone overweight... oh dear

    If you're that worried about it put it off til' August. That's enough time to lose a stone and a bit. But I don't think you should.

    What's your build like? If you're fairly built anyway, being overweight won't look too out of place on you. I have a friend who is rather overweight, he even has moobs lol, but he's pretty built so he doesn't look too bad, in fact I think he's rather adorable! That's partly because he has an amazing personality though, and I'm sure with you, your girl will appreciate your personality and won't be fussed about your weight. If you like someone as a person you're more likely to be attracted to them even if they're not what you would normally go for physically.
