Things To Consider Before You Online Date

These days it is really easy to find dating website that suit your needs. Whether you're looking for something such as over 50s dating Aberdeen, over 50s dating Edinburgh or something different such as a BBW dating website there is something for everyone. However, just because there is an abundance of online dating choices doesn't mean that you should dive right in. Instead, give it some thought and ensure that if you are joining something such as an over 50s dating Cardiff based website, you know it is the right thing for you.

Do I Want A Relationship?

For me personally, I am on dating websites because I would ideally like to find a long term relationship. I make this clear when I am talking to people online and would only be interested in perusing something with someone who had a similar mindset. That said, if you're looking for something casual, you just want to see what happens or you simply want company for one night - that is okay too! Just be sure in your mind what you want and that way, you have the best possible chance of going out there and getting it.

What Website Do I Want To Use?

As there are many different websites out there, you can find one that suits you easily. So for example if you want to find a website that caters to over 50s dating Isle of Wight - you can! Just as you can find a website based around dating plus size women, or those who share the same religious beliefs as you. Spend a little time exploring these websites and the options, so you know that if you do take the plunge and just an over 50s dating Devon based website, it is the right choice for you.

Not So Mellow Yellow With ASOS Curve

A few weeks ago I visited my parents in Doncaster and while I was there decided I wanted a new dress to wear to an event. I saw this on ASOS Curve and it is one of the new items they do in a size 30 (yes, size 28+ is slowly creeping in) so I thought I would give it a try!

I thought the dress would fit a little longer seeing as it is a size 30 and I usually wear a size 28 with ASOS, but I still love it. I wouldn't be able to wear it without leggings but at this time of year, that probably isn't a bad thing. I love the retro vibe and colours of the dress, I don't have much yellow in my wardrobe so this was a welcome addition!

Have you bought anything new lately?

Is Online Dating For Me?

I remember when I was younger, not many people talked about online dating. It was always a bit taboo and you'd probably say someone was a friend of a friend and you met that way, rather than saying you met on the big bad World Wide Web.

These days things are a bit different and people aren't so afraid that they met their significant other on a website for over 50s dating Merseyside or that they signed up to meet someone on an over 50s dating Leeds based website. This makes it much easier, because who wants to make up a lie about where they met someone and have to remember what story they made up.

I'm a fan of online dating and have met a real interesting mix of people - some good and some bad, but that is all part of lifes rich tapestry isn't it? As for whether online dating is for you - that is something online you can decide!

I would say if you are someone who is in the over 50s dating Strathclyde (or other local areas) category then you having nothing to lose. The best piece of advice I can give you is to go into everything with an open mind and your eyes wide open. If something feels to go to be true, then the chances are - it is!

A local based dating website can be a good place to start, so don't be afraid to look for something specific such as a Suffolk dating site. At least then you know anyone you're interested in is going to be nearby, so meeting them isn't a big effort - which makes life easier!

Whether you join an over 50s dating Cornwall based website or something else, your safety is the most important aspect. Keep your wits about you and don't meet anyone who gives you a bad gut instinct- it's usually right! Stay safe and meet in public places, tell people where you are going etc.

What online dating tips would you share?

Uncommon Goods: Online Shopping

Can you believe we're getting to that time of year again where we're starting to think about how we're going to spend the holidays and what gifts to buy people. 

When it comes to gift bying, I don't have much family to buy for and with friends we tend to do secret santa and other gift swaps. This means that I can spend time really getting the gifts I do buy right. I actually love buying presents for people and even if I am shopping on a budget, I want to make sure what I buy is something that they're going to love.

The Uncommon Goods website is perfect for this, because they have so much choice! I love websites that mean I can buy most of what I want in one place, because then I don't have to worry about tracking and waiting for lots of deliveries. This website definitely ticks all of the boxes for this.

Everything is set out in handy sections, so if you're looking for gifts for him, baby shower presents or something else completely you have a really good idea of where to start; which makes present buying a much easier process!

I know it might seem a little early to start present shopping, but realistically the C-word is just around the corner, and will soon creep up on us! I would recommend starting to window shop for gifts for the men in your life, because then you can short list ideas - which means when it comes to actually buying, you'll be ready to go (and far less stressed!)

Have you started to think about Christmas shopping yet?

Writing A Dating Profile As a Plus Size Woman

Let me start this by saying - I am not an expert when it comes to relationships. After all, I'm in my mid-thirties and single, so I can't pretend to know what it takes to be a dating pro. However, as someone who has online dated several times throughout my adult life, I know that writing a dating profile can be tough.

One of the things that I have seen a lot of plus size women write about is, how to get across that you are fat on your profile, without being too over the top. Whether you're using a local Norfolk dating site, a Northampton dating site or some other dating website online, it can be tough to get it right.

For me, I always make sure I have full length photos on my profile. Yes, those selfie angles and snap chat filters are fun, but if you're signed up to an Oxford dating site then you want to make sure that you're getting messaged by people who find plus size bodies attractive.

I know that when we join places such as a Shropshire dating site it's important to like who a person is on the inside, but the first impression someone gets of us is how we look.

For me personally, when I write dating profiles I always make sure to mention that I am super fat - and that I am looking to date someone that is comfortable with that. I want people to know that whether they've found me on a Staffordshire dating site or otherwise, I am comfortable in my own skin and don't intend to change.

Have you online dated? Share your experiences with me!

This Dress is Bananas

I have to be honest and say that this Lady Voluptuous Phoebe dress is an old(ish) one so may be out of stock. The first time I wore it was around Easter and I loved it  - unfortunately I loved Jager a lot that night and didn't get a chance to take any photos

We all know I am a big fan of Lady V London so I won't go on about it. The Phoebe is probably my favourite cut of dress. I like that it is a bit tight under the best and the netting of the skirt helps it to flair out, which makes it a great dress for my personal tastes!

Lady V have some fantastic new dresses at the moment - do you have your eye on any?

Back To Basics: New Look Skater Dresses

I am really lucky with my wardrobe, I have some amazing dresses and great choices when it comes to going out outfits. However, sometimes you don't want dressy or pretty outfits - for work especially I like basic items. There are times that you just want to throw on something comfortable for the day and know that you'll be well-dressed and feeling great all day.

Since New Look Inspire relaunched as New Look Curves I have been really impressed with the number of items they offer in a size 32, which seems to often match those offered in a size 24. I hadn't yet gotten around to ordering anything from them until I saw these skater dresses.

I bought 5 of them in total, for £45 delivered. The ones pictured and two black ones. They all fit the same and feel great. I like the fact that they are plain but the different necklines give them a different look for each one.

I've worn each of these a couple of times now and I would really recommend them. They're slightly elasticated under the bust which gives a shape I really enjoy wearing and they're a generous size, with stretchy material - what more could you want?
