A friend of mine is rather overweight (who am i kidding, he's 170 kg), and he's having trouble finding girls. His mom suggested him using an internet dating site. He's 20, do you think this is a good idea? anybody ever tried this?

EDIT: it's not me. look at my pics, i'm not a fatass.


anyway, so he's kind of a hard case... he played WOW excessively until around 18, that's when he befriended me and i started showing him the "real world". anyway, he says he doesn't have the willpower to go to the gym and workout, he wants people to like him the way he is. he has tried hitting on maybe 4,5 girls in his life, but mind you, he has veery low self confidence and self-esteem.

Tell him to steer clear of cannibals. No matter how sexy they are.

Or maybe he could work out so hes not such a fatass and look for a girl in real life?
#4
Do you have to pay for those?

If not it'd be worth a shot I suppose, not like there's anything to lose by trying it.
#5
That depends. Has he made any attempts at meeting girls otherwise? Cause if he has already tried other things and failed, it might be a good idea, but it should be like a last resort sorta...

That's the best answer for his problem. He can go ahead and try it. He'll get noticed by ppl without having to do anything on a website like true.com

i know cuz my friend and i were being stupid and he made me make a profile there. i get emails from the website all the time saying that so and so user winked at me and stuff. funny cuz there's no pics or anything in it and i don't use it, only created it!!!

AHAHAHA OWNED
it's everytime the same trick with the "old friend" who has "problems" huh?

back to topic:
don't use dating sites... they doesn't mean it really serious there... it would be okay if you chat with someone for a really long time about a subject blabla or something like that, but dating sites are not that cool ._.

Well that is a sign of depression; irrational thinking.
I think internet dating would probably lower his self-esteem and he'd have no idea how to talk to girls irl in the future.

I would disagree. I think he could learn a thing or two alteast because he has nothing to lose at first. I mean, it's just the internet and anonimity and stuff. It's alot easier than walking up to girls IRL.

You gotta think baby steps, mate.

Yeah, but he might start seeing it as a replacement for real-life dating, not see the need to lose weight and not change anything.

no it's like, i told him to start off easy, baby steps like Kensai said. start off by going for walks every day, 30 minutes at the beginning. just to get into the routine of exercising a little. He doesn't even want to do that, he says it's pointless, he'll never lose weight that way.

I've always thought it was irrational thinking that lead to depression.

But I haven't studied it in a few years.

Well you do meet IRL on those internet dating sites. I haven't tried any but it would seem completely pointless if you didn't eventually meet.

The dating site could be a bit of a carrot for him, if he decided to get into shape before meeting IRL.

Fat lazy people don't really deserve a date anyway, and I don't think they should get sympathy and anti depressives cos it's not proper depression, it's just realising how rubbish they are. Tell him the only cure is to sort his life out, if it's that big a deal he will be less lazy and go on a diet and stuff, and if he can't be bothered then there's no way you should bother trying to help either.

he's 20, overweight, has never kissed a girl much less touched or slept with one. he's 170 kg's at 185 cm, so not only overweight but obese.

I'd rather get him to change that having him go with the flow.

By go with the flow I kinda meant stick with real life.
Although, internet people may build up his confidence a bit :/ I guess it depends on him
