I'm dealing with the fallout from coming out to my deeply religious immediate family.

I've lived with my best friend and another good friend for 3 years. I've known them for 7--since we were freshmen in college.

In the gay male community, how hard is it to date someone pretty handsome/cute (though not necessarily physically "ripped") if one is, say, 20-25 lbs overweight (so overweight, NOT "obese") and in his mid to late 20s?
