If you're worried that carrying a few extra pounds is an online dating deal breaker, relax -- especially if you live on the West Coast or in the south. OurTime.com, an online dating site for people age 50 and up, has identified the top 10 cities for plus-sized daters.

The site analyzed the behavioral data of its more than 2.5 million users to find the location of the site's most popular users who self-identified as "big and beautiful." The site defines "popular" as those users who were getting messaged and flirted with the most.

Confidence, often seen as a turn-on, may be part of the attraction: 70 percent of single 50+ daters reported they feel more comfortable in their bodies than ever before, according to the site. We're personally inspired by role models like Kirstie Alley, 63, who tears up the floor on "Dancing With The Stars," and was quick to defend Lady Gaga after the media frenzy over her weight gain.

"It's Hollywood that is obsessed with weight. I think everyone should try to be healthy. Lean is better than not lean, but I think we send a horrible message to the world, especially to girls," Alley told People.

Check out our slideshow to find out the 10 cities where big, bold and beautiful is hot, hot, hot.
