Being in shape is no guarantee that you'll get one.

That sounds decent to me. I have had the same thought sooo many times. Thankfully I found somebody recently who did not seem to care that I have a little extra chub. I still intend to work hard throughout the year, now it is as motivation to get a body that she will like...

Good Luck and work hard!

Edit: Velo Vol is right, however it seems that being in shape will get you more attention. Ladies will take a second look...which gives you more opportunities

Hey, as long as she knows your shape is likely to unshape soon as you turn slovenly, no worries!

Exactly.
People are not stupid. For you to play the instant weight loss guy to get a chick is a game not worth playing. You are only fooling yourself. I dated a guy who was overweight. Overweight to the point of him not wanting to see his mother because she always reminded him. I guess he did not like the truth. When we met he was on Nutri-system on his quest to lose weight. I thought this was good because at that time I was a bit underweight and wanted someone to do outdoor things with. Guy buys a bike but has to say something about riding 10 miles. He could handle the distance but always made a big deal about it. He started to eat crap again and the bike became a clothing hanger. I could not take it anymore so I walked away from him. I would not be surprised if the guy is even larger than before.

Losing weight won't help as you will still be ugly.

I was looking for a girlfriend too, but my wife didn't think it was a good idea.

Take it from a lady... it's personality not looks that atracts women. This explains why ugly, troll like men have babes on their arms (well personality and money!). Because men are attracted to looks they assume all women are as well.

I know an awful lot of lonely, buff, muscular men. So Don't lose weight to find a GF - For one thing, that is so superficial and what happens if you gain it back? Work on you , your confidence and personality. Do you have a good sense of humor, a quick ready smile.? Is your hygiene good (that is important to a woman)? Unless you are 900 lbs, stuck in a bed (and even those guys get women - go figure???) a GF is a possibility if you are ready and really want one.

And Travelmama - you are I always seem to be on the same page!
