When it comes to dating, does a person's physical size really matter? Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes, these sizes are curvier than the others. Is not having the perfect figure, a negative in the dating world? Are overweight people doomed to a dateless life? Well, not really.

Here are some reasons why you should date an overweight person:

1 Confidence
Have you ever come across a couple - where one of them was physically larger than their significant other? And wondered how they landed themselves a boyfriend/girlfriend? One word: Confidence. What they lack in size, they make up in confidence. And heaps of it. A fatter person is less likely to be conceited, and snobbish.

2 Curves in the right places
Having curves in the right places is sexy. It comes really handy when it you need to sit on someone's lap in case of tight squeeze, and the person whose lap you sit on benefits cos there's more cushion and less bones. In fact, they also have super smooth moves on the dance floor.

3 Personality
At the end of the day, if you have a great personality - you will be bringing all the boys/ girls to your yard - irrespective of your size. If you can challenge someone in an intellectual and emotional space, coupled with chemistry, half your battle is won.

4 Sense of humour
We all have different kinds of humour, and if you find one that shares your taste in humour, no amount of BMI is going to get in your way.
