Dating website for men who like plus size women
The most important element to me is that no matter my size, I’m now twice as confident in my body than I was as a size 10.
When I was thinner I was more self-conscious, less confident around men and much more uptight.
“Tinder relies on a match being made between two individuals depending more on physical appearance.
As a result, there haven’t been many positive remarks made by plus sized users,” Becky Han, a member of the marketing team explains.
"I'd get messages from men that would say things like, 'Do you want to meet up to have sex?
' And when I'd say no, they'd say, 'Oh, well you're fat, anyway.'"

While dating apps are notoriously scary spaces for women in general, with some 57% of female app users reporting some kind of harassment, plus-size women seem to have a tougher time than their "straight-sized" counterparts.
A date with me now would be way more fun than it would have been then.
If I went back to a 10 I’d mourn the loss of my boobs more than celebrate my flatter stomach. Hopefully then you will attract someone who likes the version of yourself you’ve chosen as much as you do.
My weight has fluctuated dramatically throughout my life – I was a fat child, a thin teenager, a chubby sixth former, a skinny student and so on, up and down through my adult life.A size 18 woman, posting some of her least flattering, double chin-featuring pics, received 18 messages in five days.That’s 18 more than the bodyshaming community might have you expect.If there’s a match, they get 48 hours to message each other.Raman and Li wanted to create a dating app that focuses on physical looks (like most of the ones on the market), but make it more welcoming for plus-size people.
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’.
