I am relatively new to this forum and do not go on it much. Here's the problem. -I am an older woman who has been divorced for many years now. After my divorce I had an 8 year relationship with someone. That ended 2 years ago. I have no other way to meet men except on dating sites. I work from home and never get the chance to meet many people. I am only 5'0 tall and weigh 148 pounds. I know that this may not sound heavy to some people, but believe me-on a very short person, it's a lot of weight. I put myself back on a dating site with only my head shots. If I do "talk" to someone on the site I tell the truth about my weight. I'm not looking to fool anyone. But I'm just too self-conscious to actually GO on a date. I have lost 6 pounds so far but it just doesn't seem to be coming off now. My question-do I wait to date? Do I wait until I like the way I look, or put myself out there now?? I can't tell you how self conscious I would be to actually meet someone in person at this weight. 😨😨 But I can be waiting forever for the weight to come off! I want to go out and enjoy myself while I am still young enough. What to do??? Has anyone else been in this situation before?
