Dating sites for overweight women
Over the course of five days, 'fat' Yvette (pictured left) received 18 messages, 74 likes and 81 visits.Every dating app has its supporters and its naysayers.So, to find out if men like fat women, I created two identical online dating profiles of me size 18 and size 10 to find out.I should point out that I’m an 18 at this point and happy to use the word fat because I find ‘plus size’ patronising and I mentally think of it as phat instead. I set up these profiles on free online dating site OKCupid.Raman and co-founder, Michelle Li, built Woo Plus, which has a Tinder-like interface that allows you to swipe yes or no to plus-size singles; matches are given 48 hours to message each other.
“Personally I am also not a fan of the term BBW – it makes me feel like I am a fetish purely for men and I’m not comfortable with that.
Happn, for example, allows you to match up with people you’ve crossed paths with throughout the day IRL — a quality that some call brilliant and others have been dubbing creepy.
Now, the Internet is divided over a new app that just launched in November: Woo Plus, which is specifically geared toward plus-size women.
As you can see, both are identical except for the photos and the fact one has ‘overweight’ as body type and the other has ‘thin’.
I also changed the wording slightly just in case OKCupid cottoned on and took them down.
