Now that we got that way-too-technical disclaimer out of the way...Here's what they had to say: Why don't you date fat women?There are several websites dedicated to plus size or fat dating, but most cater to feederism and especially the fetishization of fat people. and that I was not deserving of love because of my body, a concept that many fat or plus size people are familiar with. I started off with a very closed mind; I expected this to be yet another fat fetish dating site. Cofounder Michelle Li says it's no mistake the model is similar to Tinder."It's a tried and true method, so we went with what works." Despite the swipe model, there are several differences.Do men only want to have sex with bigger women, but not date them? 'It's like [those men] think that they can say whatever they want to me because I'm not a real person — I'm a fat person.'But while she used to let these messages bother her, she says starting her blog and getting involved with the body positivity movement helped her embrace her shape and ignore the cruel comments being sent to her by rejected suitors.In 2016, dating app for plus-sized women, Woo Plus, found that 71 per cent of its users had been fat shamed on other apps.
'But I am happiest when I accept myself and embrace the fat! It's me, it's beautiful, and it makes me unique.'And guess what? Sixty-one percent of users are male, 39 percent are women, and while the app is targeted toward women, Li points to this as proof that there are men who like "all different body types." While impressive, considering the app launched in October 2015, the user base still isn't huge.Tinder reported 50 million users with 12 million users joining every day as of 2014, and Ok Cupid reported having 12 million users in 2014.First, you can only like a few people a day, unless you invite friends to join the app, an obvious attempt at getting more users.Second, if you don't interact with the user within 48 hours of you both mutually liking each other, the "like" disappears and you lose your opportunity to talk to them, a feature that prevents endless "likes" with no contact.That said, it's hard to be objective when someone is explaining why you don't give them an erection.
