Large Friends Review

You cannot deny the fact that with the 'Internet of Things' life, we tend to put on some extra pounds. If you are someone who does not believe in having a size zero figure to date or pretend to lose extra weight and become skinny to allure the world, Large Friends is the site for you. The first few years when the site was launched, there were a number of fat people. However, you can now find ordinary people who are using the site as well to find their love interest or strong friendship evolving in plus sized people.


The membership of Large Friends is divided in two categories – standard membership and gold membership. The standard membership is free for all. It does not charge anything to any of the interested users who want to sign up for meet potential partners. However, the site does not offer complete access to such standard members. You need to become a paid member to avail each feature. Here is a quick look at the pricing options available for upgrading to a gold membership account.

  • Upgrade to one month gold membership in $29.95 (approximately $1 per day) and save 25%.
  • Upgrade to three months gold membership in $59.95 (approximately $19.95 per month) and save 50%.
  • Upgrade to six months gold membership in $95.95 (approximately $15.95 per month) and save 60%.

The payments can be made through credit card or check card. International members can use PayPal for updating their basic account to paid membership. Large Friends automatically renews one month membership. Hence, turn it off if you do not want the automatic billing feature.

Verified Member

Large Friends does not have a compulsory verification process. You can opt to have a badge of a verified member at your profile. For this, you need to upload any one of the identification documents such as the state ID card or driver’s license. The verification process may be an optional choice, but the members do take you utterly legitimate after seeing that badge shining right on your profile.

Large Friends offers you with two choices of badges. You can either verify each photo that you upload or have a full approval seal. If you are looking forward to use this site full-fledged, get the seal as that will enhance the importance of your existence at the site and make you stand out.

Search your Partner

The site again gives you two choices to make searches (basic and advanced) for finding the right list of profiles.

The basic search makes you use only a few of the keywords such as the location, sex and age. Furthermore, if you choose to become a paid member, you can refine the list a little extra and immediately get the profiles that you are looking for. Actually, being an upgraded member at Large Friends is really helpful as you can rule out the accounts that do not have photographs, keep a track of the last login time and prefer making a search of a typical body type and pull out only verified members from the pool.

Free Chat

One interesting feature that is allowed to the paid as well as the free members is the social chat. Unlike other sites where you have to become a gold or platinum member to avail this area, Large Friends offers it for free. Hence, even the standard members do not feel isolated and socialize themselves by raving in the chat area. You would not find everybody interested only in romance and dating. Therefore, try taking it slow and initiate conversation with only few friends at first.

You need to make conversations in English as there are no other languages to pick from.

Advice from a Mentor

Not every member on the site must be a full literate in online dating niche. Large Friends provides special mentors to each member who would be interested in having an expert for grabbing additional advices or tips.

The counselors here offer you with tips to boost your profile and attract more audience; initiate the communication, uploading that photographs which will bring the people to view your profile, tips to email or communicate with people and similar other dating instructions.
