Trying to meet the right person is hard enough. But what if you are also trying to lose weight when you hit the dating scene? Whether you're dating online or trying to meet your match the old-fashioned way, there are a few things you need to know before you date when you're overweight. Use these tips to feel good, enjoy the experience and have fun in the process. There's no need to obsess about your weight when you're dating. Believe it or not, your date may not even care about your weight. And even if they do care, it probably matters less to them than it does to you.
