body image and dating

If you’ve ever struggled with body image and dating, listen to this episode. I coach Debra on how to be more confident in her body as she dates.

Debra wrote in to Last First Date Radio about her struggle with body image and dating. Here’s what she wrote:

“I am struggling with body image. My body has changed a lot over the past few years, and it takes a lot of courage and mental effort for me to get on the dating apps. Once I meet someone, I can forget about my “ physical body” and just be present with them.. until something ends the relationship- such as recently the guy significantly lied to me about his age.. So each time I try to get back online I have this battle with myself.. I shouldn’t date until I lose more weight, and I’ll feel more confident to choose different men. I think that men will not want me because of my size right now.
