Sue Sweeney's red curly hair would be her crowning glory, if it weren't for her sassy personality. In her 40s, Sweeney is a people person. She has to be, because she runs the Rhode Island branch of the country's largest personal introduction service, Right One and Together Dating.
On the lookout for men who would like to meet her full-figured clients, she attended an event called the Big Shots Dance. There were women up to pounds, dancing, even wearing latex. Not spandex Yes, but a different experience that so-called "women of size" or "big, beautiful women" as many prefer are having more and more these days.
Started in by two women with experience in trying to crack mainstream clubs, Club Curves was created as a permanent party location for full-figured women. According to the founders, the club provides a "safe environment" for many women who had ly never been to a nightclub for fear of being outcast or ridiculed or who want to be around those who like their look.
Similar type dances, such as the one Sweeney attended, are given occasionally by various organizations around the country with names like More2Love, Big Difference, and Ample Images. In Atlanta, a club called Hipsters even has a motto: "No skinny chicks unless they know Big is Beautiful ". Like many BBWs, Sweeney isn't especially looking for slender men "I don't like to feel I can put them in my pocket or break them like a stick," she says.
But she says she was surprised at how "normal" the men were at the Big Shots Dance. I guess I expected dorks and geeks. Rodney A. Battles can explain that, if it needs explaining. Battles is the author of the book Night Games! The amount of attention they get tells them if the night has been successful. In a club for BBWs he's been to oneBattles says, large women are more likely to ask men to dance. It levels the playing field.
The men won't come looking for Barbie Dolls because they know Barbie Dolls won't be there. In what he calls a "normal" club, Battles contends that a man would look at a Barbie Doll with no hope of speaking with her all evening before he would talk to a larger woman who might be a riot and a great dancer. Sweeney laughs at that one. You'd be surprised the women I see going out in sweats. And my skinny friends ask me, 'Why do the men always talk to you? In fact, a lot of women in the club probably don't even see themselves as overweight.
If it's a slow dance, make it a good slow dance. Ask her to dance back. Offer to buy her a drink. Women are just looking for a normal man who wants to have fun -- no matter what size they are. Sweeney herself is dating a personal trainer.
