Navigating the dating scene isn't always easy for singles. Meeting someone new sounds simple enough, but finding the right person for you can be a real challenge. Many people have specific criteria that always comes to mind when they look for a partner. And for some, that involves body size.

Plus size dating isn't just the fetishization of a group of people. It's a safe place for people both inside and outside of the plus-sized community to connect with genuine partners who are attracted to their physical attributes and want to get to know them better. Finding a match may not always be easy, but that's where dating sites come in.

Plenty of men and women love big beautiful women. They're also surprised to find that there are websites to connect plus size singles. That's right, BBW dating sites are out there, and they're more common than you think. Simply sign up for a website or download a dating or a hookup app and you're one step closer to finding the BBW of your dreams.

Unsure of where to start? We don't blame you. People who explore dating sites tend to hesitate sometimes. They don't want to get scammed. They want to make sure they meet someone real, and the connection is genuine. Whether you're looking for a long-term relationship or interested in dating casually, there's a website where you can make a match and meet BBW singles that are interested in making a connection with you.

AdultFriendFinder.com

AdultFriendFinder.com is one of the biggest dating sites out there. They have over 80 million singles around the world who have made an account looking to get to know others. It's one of the oldest sites out there, so a lot of people are eager to sign up and get started. Different reports indicate that between 55 and 70% of their users are plus-size and looking to date other plus-size singles.

What's the website like?

AdultFriendFinder has two options for singles interested in adult dating. The free version requires that you sign up with some basic information and set up your profile. Once you're signed up, you can start checking out some of the people available. There are a lot of filters available, which lets you detail just what kind of person you're looking for, which is good news if it's a BBW you're after.

What are the downsides?

AdultFriendFinder doesn't have a mobile app, which might make online dating harder for some. The site does work on some mobile browsers but ideally, you'd want to use a computer.

A lot of people aren't fans of the fact that some features are only available to premium users. You won't get access to the entire userbase until you sign up for premium. AdultFriendFinder's premium site gives you access to all of their great potential matches, including the singles' complete profiles.

LargeFriends.com

LargeFriends.com is another BBW dating site. BBW singles can feel secure in a community that's tailored to them. This site is all about body positivity, which is a huge draw for those looking for both casual dating and long-term relationships.

What's the website like?

The site has about one million singles, with 60,000 monthly visitors ready for dating. There is a slightly larger amount of men than big beautiful women, but the site is also kind to same-sex matches.

To sign up, you create an account and fill out your profile. There are a few different features that allow you to reach out to other singles. One of the peoples' favorite features is the blog. Unlike many other dating sites, the space to blog allows peopleto to find others and make a deeper connection. Because the space is plus-size friendly, it's one of the safest places to meet BBW and be a BBW. They also take a lot of security members to make sure singles are who they say they are on the site.

What are the downsides?

LargeFriends has a mobile app, but it's only available to Android users at this time. iOS users can use the site on a mobile browser for the mobile dating experience. A lot of the more advanced communication methods involve a paid account.

Eharmony

Eharmony is a great dating website for those looking for long-term relationships that lead to love. It's the perfect place to get to know someone thoroughly. As a general dating app, there isn't as much filtering. The trade-off is a lot more in-depth information about potential matches.

What's the website like?

The website requires BBW singles to fill out a fairly extensive profile. It digs deep enough to weed out singles looking for casual encounters. Though there are a lot of features that are tied to a paid membership, Eharmony has one of the best premium memberships of all dating websites in value.

What are the downsides?

Eharmony doesn't have any features that will help you find a BBW in particular. As a general dating website, you may deal with some of the things that make niche sites more appealing. Some singles also find the more detailed profile information a deterrent from jumping right in and meeting others.

BBWCupid.com

BBW Cupid is another BBW dating site that singles are loving. Just as some of the other sites focused on BBW singles, they promote body positivity and celebration of all your curves. Dating in the skin you're in should be something to celebrate, and their users do just that.

What's the website like?

Many users love the interface of the website, which shows you a lot of great information you need to know about someone when online dating, at a glance. Their awesome interface is also available in apps for iOS and Android, assuring you can take your favorite dating site on the go. There are also many safeguards in place to make sure BBW singles aren't harassed or trolled by others online.

What are the downsides?

BBWCupid has a smaller pool of singles, with just 100,000 total and 50,000 active each day. Both members have to be premium members in order to send messages back and forth, which is frustrating for some singles who enjoy chatting when they're getting to know a new person.

Wooplus.com

Wooplus is another site offering shame-free, comfortable, safe dating to BBW singles. It's free to join, and signing up and completing your profile takes just minutes.

What's the website like?

The simple, easy-to-complete profiles are great for giving you a lot of information about your potential dates. On Wooplus, you can filter by everything but location as a free member. Many curvy singles love all the different, easy ways there are to contact potential matches and start dating! Once you meet a match, the person has 48 hours to respond before the match is deleted.

What are the downsides?

If you want to find someone in your area to meet, you'll have to sign up for a paid version of the site. If you get to know people best by video chatting, there's no function to do so built into Wooplus.

Chubbybunnie.com

Chubbybunnie promises plenty of big beautiful women looking to meet someone new. This dating site has every kind of thick, curvy woman you can imagine. If you're interested in meeting plus-size men, the app is also a dating site that allows you to explore that.

What's the website like?

Chubbybunnie is run by LargeFriends but has fewer features than their site. You can fill out your profile, but you're limited in the number of pictures you can share with potential matches.

What are the downsides?

Chubbybunnie has an old-school interface, which some users may be deterred by. The site also lacks mobile dating apps. Unlike other websites that cater to BBW dating, Chubbybunnie lacks security features that make single women feel free from online harassment.

BBWDateFinder.com

BBWDateFinder is interesting because it provides a collection of users who sign up across different sites. While that means more singles for you to meet, it doesn't guarantee the users you come across are big beautiful women. Despite the title, this doesn't seem like a BBW dating website exclusively.

What's the website like?

The web design is modern and high quality, which makes it feel like a site with good value. If you find it intimidating, don't worry. There's a simpler interface to navigate when you sign up.

It's easy to sign up and get started. You can add as few or as many details in your profile as you wish, which is a relief for those who prefer to share when it's time to chat.

What are the downsides?

Users have complained that the site advertises real users that upon signing up, you discover aren't real. That kind of dishonesty is frowned upon by many using a BBW dating site, especially for those who are looking for a safe space to meet someone and find long-lasting love. Some users have reported others being dishonest about their appearances, lying about being big beautiful women when they are not.
