I also have a great guy, that I met online 7 years ago. We’ve been married 5 years now and have a 3 year old son! When we met I was about 195 lbs (and 5’3”) so he also loved me for me. He also says he prefers me w/o makeup in jeans & a t-shirt, I tell him he’s sweet but a liar! Smile

Oh cool! I'm always scared of the online thing but, maybe it's worth a shot

I met my good guy on Facebook! Well, actually it was a reconnection. We knew each other as kids, my dad was his little league coach. My brother and I had a party last year and invited him to stop by. Hadn't seen him in 15 some years. The rest is history! And he's younger than me too, hee hee. Actually sometimes I kinda hate that. LOL

I've got to chime in here too... Smile
I'm also lucky enough to have a good guy too! He loves me fat or thin (which is good seeing as how things are) And he loves me whether or not I put on weight or make up and he's always supportive!

I met him 6 years ago online, we met in person after a 14 hour phone call, and we got married 3.5 years ago (and I moved across the Atlantic to be with him).
It's still kind of embarrassing to have to admit that I met him online, but things have worked out really well. LOL.

So keep your eyes open and don't limit yourself by a type and you just never know what might happen!

I see nothing wrong with meeting online. I actually think it's kind of cool because then you will have some kind of mental connection BEFORE you see each other. Ever notice that people become more attractive when you really like their personality?

AND unlike meeting in a bar, you already know he can READ and WRITE! Bonus Smile

My husband is the same way (so, yes, obviously there are a bunch of good guys out there)...he met me overweight, saw me get even more overweight, he thinks I'm beautiful all the time (even if I don't always agree with his assessment Wink ).

And I have to agree with what was said earlier...the fact that he loves me for who I am is the ONLY reason I can be on this journey. I think he'd prefer that I NOT be so focused on eating healthier because it interferes with his desire to eat "bad" foods...but he supports me nonetheless. I know that if I thought his love was tied to my looks/weight, I absolutely would NOT be able to lose this weight.

I have to give a shout-out to my hubby (of almost 19 years). I weighed 200 pounds -I'm 5'1" when we first started dating, been up and down since getting married and he loves me at any weight, but I'm happier and more energetic when I'm not so heavy. I'm doing this for me, though he supports me all the way. I agree with the meeting online too, many of my friends met their (now) spouses that way.

I am probably out of place in this thread but...

I met my fiance on E-Harmony and it has worked out very well for matching us by personality, goals, desires, and whatever the heck the other dimensions of matching are. The service isn't cheap but I met my fiance within 3 months. (We dated for almost year before I popped the question.)

Good luck to all those that are still searching.

Oh my fiance was living in CT when we started dating and she said that the guys up there are jerks.
If they showed up before her they would order without her and not wait.
If they didn't show up before her they were super late.
None of the guys ever offered to pay.

I won her over pretty easily by simply paying for dates (still pay most of the time) and opening the doors for her. Even the car door... I joke with her saying that she is just a woman so she isn't allowed to open the car door on her own.

She moved down to PA for me(where she was originally from) and that sacrifice ultimately earned her a nice, fancy diamond ring... Very Happy

I lived in MA for awhile and dated a masshole, and I concur, they are lame in general (I'm sure there are a few gems though, so don't get all bent out of shape new englanders)

Nice guys really should be doing great with the ladies, considering how many guys have no clue how to be at all romantic or even courteous. But then again, I have to give some blame to the girls who let them act that way and of course the mommies who never taught their boys to do anything for themselves, let alone anyone else.

Actually, my husband grew up in Mass and prior to moving to FL where I live, he lived in New Hampshire for a few years, so I think I found one of the gems. I will say however though, he does admit that he was not the nicest guy in his youth... We were in our mid to late 30's when we met.

I say just be yourself and enjoy being single. You have the right to be picky and don't settle. You deserve to find someone who will respect and love you for you!

I found "him" too! My BF loves me without makeup, prefers me without actually, which I think is just stupid. LOL Whatever. There are plenty of good guys out there, I don't think they are all bad.


Where are ya'll finding these "good" guys? My girlfriends and I are convinced they don't exist..lol


The internet, haha fortunately true for me. At least it's a good place to find fellow geeks like me Smile

I found mine at a wedding. We stood up together (everyone say awwwwww). I was so afraid I was going to stand up with some guy that looked like George Castanza! I wasn't looking, didn't want to get involved with someone that lived 1200 miles away and certainly wasn't going to hook up at the wedding (those days are waayyyyy over). 6 months later I have him my phone number (big decision) and a year later I moved from WI to MA.... so the cliche is right: when you're not looking...... Smile

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
