Dating for plus size people
I also changed the wording slightly just in case OKCupid cottoned on and took them down.
Unfortunately, a large number of curvy women may have had to go through abuse (mental, and possibly physical) and ridicule in their younger, and even adult years. It's earned confidence that also doubles as a victory lap for a woman who's determined to win at life. 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.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’.But we live in an imperfect, unfair existence, and shapely women sometimes don't get the public fawning that smaller women do. Smaller women can have nice fannies, but no one does junk in the trunk like plus-size women. It may not be the experience of I doubt that this piece will cause that kind of action, but I do feel it's important that a man comes out and says, loudly, that he digs BBWs (Big Beautiful Women). Full disclosure: I've dated thin women in my time, but my preference is BBW.3. If a guy doesn't turn his head when a hot BBW walks past wearing leggings, he's blind. That’s why I’m wearing that white skirt – to cover up my ‘massive belly’ and ‘big thighs’.
At size 10, when I looked in the mirror all I thought was ‘could do better’.
But it can’t be denied that, if the guys of OKCupid are anything to go by, single men prefer thinner women twice as much. Alternatively, though, you could interpret these results slightly differently.
A size 18 woman, posting some of her least flattering, double chin-featuring pics, received 18 messages in five days.
But, as a single woman trying everything I can to increase my chances of finding The One, I was interested to see how much of an issue size is for single men.
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.
