I've been single for awhile, by choice.

Put up pictures that show your whole body. Maybe you'll get fewer guys writing you, but I've found the ones you do will tend to be more sincere.

I had a profile up on OKcupid that I hadn't updated in months, and didn't bother to because no one had written me. In the meantime I lost a lot of weight because of medical problems and went from 200 to 170 lbs. I then got an email on there from who is now my current boyfriend, and had to tell him when I wrote back that I was much smaller than in the photos. He said it didn't matter to him. You never know.

I've found that putting up full length photos solves those kinds of issues though. Or at least from the thigh up.

Its how you react to it. Some men are not attracted to larger women so they fade away BUT the ones that stay will be the ones you need to focus on. You cannot let these men get you down because they don't know a shred about you. Hold your head up and post a full picture to rule out the ones that are going to balk once you send it. Honesty upfront will eliminate the rejection that you are facing.

Good Luck!!
