Most people start their New Years Resolutions January 1 but since my 2014 resolution revolves around finding ‘love’ I’ve decided to launch February 14th so here goes:

“Between this Valentine’s Day and Next I’m going on Fifty Fat Dates.”  ~Kelly


I’m calling it 50 FAT DATES since I’m fat (duh) and I’ll be going on 50 dates (double duh).  This project is aimed at being an exploration of plus size dating as well as sharing my personal dating stories and advice with you.  Feel free to learn from the pending plus size dating disasters. Gotta kiss frogs to find princes, right? Or as my good friend Tam always says “It’s all about the churn and burn when it comes to dating, Kels.” Seriously though, I’m hoping to find myself a good man and rather than sitting at home wondering why I’m single I’m putting my big booty out there and actually going on dates. Surely one date a week for a year should unearth a diamond in the rough relationship worth polishing (as long as I remember you can’t polish a turd.)


I’ll be casting a wide net: online dating, meetups, introductions via friends, family and work colleagues, dating events, big girl clubs, conferences, weekends away, weddings and networking mixers. That’s just a few on my list and feel free to add suggestions. I’m also aiming for a cross section of men so I don’t go after the same ‘type’ of guy. Actually, I intend on dating outside my type in order to mix it up. I do have a super secret list outlining my 50 Fat Dates quest but since I don’t kiss on the first date you’ll have to wait a while before I reveal that to you. Geez, don’t try and get into my plus size panties so soon.


No. This isn’t 50 Fat F@#ks! LOL. It’s plus size dating not a quest to have a string of one night stands and sleep with fifty guys in a year. That’s just rachet but thanks for letting me clear that up before the first date. Any guy that goes on a date with me expecting to get all sexed up will be sorely disappointed (after I kick him in the nuts.)


Because plus size dating is a taboo, because so many big girls (including me) have been told they’re ‘too fat to date,’ because I want to find out what guys really think about dating plus size women and because I need to put myself out there and date! Also, this scares me. To paraphrase Braveheart (or Nicki Minaj) “Everyone dies but not everyone lives.”

Wish me luck I’ll report back after date #1~Kelly

    Hey Kel
    ( I automatically feel comfortable calling you that because my name is also Kelly.)
    I was looking for clothes ideas for my boyfriend and came across your interview on Chubstr. Which lead me here. I just wanted to say I adore you blog! I can’t wait to read about the 50 dates! I will definitely let my friends know about your blog as well!
