Large Friends Love Stories
Like many other dating sites out there, LargeFriends.com has no shortage of love stories that first started on the site.
Take a look at this lovely story from one user, “Thirteen years (2005) ago, our worlds met. All it took was a ‘wink’ to start our lives together. We talked on the phone for two months before meeting face to face. Then that July, we started living together. In September, we got engaged. Then tied the knot in May 2006. Now we will be celebrating twelve years happily married this year (2018). We knew from the first ‘wink’ that we were perfect for each other. We are each other’s best friend and soulmate.”
Another user shares, “For the first time in my life, I have found what so many others have had at one time or another… HAPPINESS! David and I met here on LargeFriends.com at the beginning of May when I was deleting my profile because I was giving up. I believe in fate… destiny… or whatever you want to call it… and I know that we were meant to find each other that day. Why didn’t we meet earlier? Who knows. After spending time together, we both knew that we were meant to be together and he proposed. We were married on Oct. 7th and couldn’t be happier!”
How the Service Works
Interested yet? The good news is, it’s very easy to get started on LargeFriends.com! All you have to do is sign up and start on your journey to find your one true love!
Sign up Process
The sign-up process is quite easy. After registering on the site, you’re first required to create a profile. This includes some basic information such as your first and last name, username, email address, password, age, country, postal code, ethnicity, height, gender, and preferred gender.
You will then be asked to write an ‘About You’ section of up to 2,000 characters long. You’re also free to write about the person that you want to match with; in fact, you’re given 2,000 characters to elaborate on your wants and expectations of your future partner or friend. Whatever you write here in these sections is up to you – no need to beat around the bush on your own profile!
A profile photo is not required, but in a dating site like this LargeFriends.com, you’ll certainly benefit more by adding one. You’re allowed to upload up to 27 photos, and you can even add captions to them if you want. Let your personality shine through and amaze future partners with witty one liners right from the get-go!
The messaging system varies depending on your membership type. If you’re a paid member, of course you’ll be given a lot of other options than a free member. Paid members can post and view videos, while free members are limited to sending just ‘winks’ or e-greeting cards.
Take note that the biggest advantage to getting a paid membership is that you can actually initiate contact with other users. Free members, on the other hand, can only respond to messages – and only via email. This is a huge drawback that may make it worth getting a paid membership plan after all, especially if you’re serious in using LargeFriends.com to find The One.
Thankfully, LargeFriends.com has a lot of filters for those who are very specific with their preferences. This includes filters such as age range, height, ethnicity, relationship status, body type, hair or eye color, religion, educational attainment, occupation, income, distance, whether or not they want children, or whether they not they smoke or drink.
Reliability and Safety
LargeFriends.com is a pretty safe platform as far as dating sites go. This is mainly due to the moderators who make sure to comb through every profile to weed out any harmful or abusive content of any kind.
If you find that someone is harassing you, you’re also free to block that individual member, or add them to a block list to prevent them from contacting you again.
And if you’ve already found your perfect man or woman and would like to withdraw from the site, you can deactivate your profile and have everything on your profile deleted from the site immediately any time.
Help & Support
You can contact support anytime you have queries, complaints, suggestions, or comments about the site. If there’s anything that’s troubling you, be it the site itself or with other users, support is there for you 24/7 via phone call or live chat.
If you’re serious in your search for The One on LargeFriends.com, you’ll get more benefits if you avail the paid membership option.
Pricing comes in three options: a one-month-plan costs $29.95, a 3-month-plan costs $59.95 or $19.95 per month, while a 6-month-plan costs $95.95 or $15.95 per month.
Some of the perks of paying for your membership includes:
- Ability to appear at the top of search results
- Ability to save specific searches
- Ability to hide undesired matches in search results
- Ability to view videos of other users
- Ability to contact other users through chat or email
- Access to advanced search options
If you’re not yet ready to avail a paid membership though, you can stick to a free membership in the meantime. You’re limited to merely responding to messages via email, but it’s a start, at least.
Wanna take your conversations on the go? LargeFriends.com has a free mobile app that’s available to download right now on Google Play, and soon on the Apple App Store.
The mobile app allows you to do the following, as per their website:
- Send unlimited messages to BBW / BHM singles near you
- FREE to send winks
- Search by BBW body type
- See who viewed your profile
- Browse profiles anonymously
- Let someone know you like them by swiping left or right
Unfortunately for free users though, while the app is free to download, you do need a paid subscription to be able to access most of these features. At most, free users can only view profiles, send winks, and respond to messages.
LargeFriends.com is a great site for finding what you’re looking for, especially if what you’re looking for is BBW or BHM.
Not to mention, it’s tried and tested, having been in the industry for almost 17 years. The love stories that users are generous enough to share are a testament that this dating site really does work. Of course, the pricing can be a bit too steep for some, but so far, that’s the only downside, and the pros still outweigh the cons.
Besides, you know what they say about true love: it’s always worth a shot. Try out LargeFriends.com now!
