By Andy Soltis. OkCupid said singles are going to size up their date prospects according to what they consider physically attractive anyway, so the site is doing nothing different from what goes on in bars and clubs. But outraged critics said the body-type filter is a form of online discrimination. However, site co-founder Sam Yagan said the filter option is, well, just an option. OkCupid, originally launched under a different name by a group of Harvard students, has claimed more than 3 million users. Read Next. Gene scans solving mystery diseases.

Hey, Rage Blackout Anyone? There’s a Disgusting “No Fatties” Speed Dating Event Tonight
Melissa Stanger. A recent study in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships called “Date Someone Your Own Size” asked volunteers to assess, on a scale from zero to , avatars that depicted real-life couples. Partners who were both straight size received an average score of
I like how chemistry. Reading those sorts of comments over and over and then deleting the match… I think it takes a toll on me. Has anyone reading this had good experiences with those? As a “gent” reading, I have to say that there isn’t a woman out there I don’t think is beautiful. I know that doesn’t do much for a woman’s self-esteem when I tell her she’s beautiful and mention that all women, by the very nature of being women goddesses? Again, that doesn’t really help Helen, though.
Online dating is a tricky thing in all capacities, though, and I think it’s safe to say that Helen isn’t the only one who’s not having a lot of luck — thin or fat. Not that you need to be told this, Helen, because it sounds like you do have confidence, but I still think that most of what’s important in a woman’s appearance is the way she holds herself.
If she stands upright, makes eye contact and is well-kempt, regardless of size, then who cares about size? That doesn’t mean doing that is going to make men come drooling, but I think it goes a long way in setting a woman apart from other women by way of long-term mate potential. Just my two cents, and perhaps not worth much more, but I wish you all the luck in the world finding what you want.

Dating site expels 5,000 ‘fatties’ over weight gain
My name is Stephanie and I am a member of all the dating apps. We all know that dating — either online or IRL — in this day and age can be an absolute cesspit of annoyance and despair. So I always thought that to cut down on the timewasting, ghosting and potential inappropriate messaging, it would be easier to connect with people on apps featuring specific themes or hobbies you have in common.
In what is either the greatest publicity stunt or the worst online dating has launched Sleepless in Austin, a website dedicated to finding this.
By Megan Sheets For Dailymail. Anyone who’s used a dating app will likely have their fair share of cringeworthy stories – but one California woman’s tale of her date-from-hell may just take the cake. The year-old’s thread has since gone viral on social media as hundreds of fellow bad-date victims express their condolences and share similar stories. Miller began the thread by introducing Brandon, a year-old father she’d met on Bumble. Miller began her story on Friday in a tweet that read: ‘Hello, Twitter!
Welcome to the bumble date from hell: a thread. In the next tweet she introduces the date in question, year-old Brandon, along with a picture from his profile before launching into the story. The whole way to the bar he talked about bad dates he had, so I shared a few as well. He threw his menu on the floor like a literal baby and then spoke to her in a disgustingly sarcastic and degrading tone.
Dating site OkCupid filters out fatties for $5 fee
Now that is what I call stupidity. But feel free to do so, because you are the one who will end up the loser in the end. Nobody wants to date an asshole. That’s what dating sites are for, to narrow down your prospects. That can only happen if prospects are entirely honest about what they are and what they want. Sports Prick — rule number one on this blog — you will comment with respect or you will be removed.
Online dating as a bigger woman can be brutal. I’ve been called a “fatty” or “fat bitch” by men on Tinder, or told that men would only have sex with me as a favor, because men could never be attracted to someone my size. I’m not insecure about my appearance, but when I first got into online dating, I found myself obsessing over my weight in an entirely different way.
I worried my pictures made me look thinner than I actually am, and men would call me out for “lying” about my size. On sites like OkCupid, where you have to fill out a series of questions relating to sex, dating, and personality, I’d preemptively check how a guy answered questions like “would you date someone who is overweight? I eventually got over this, and I realized I’d created problems for myself that didn’t need to exist. But I was intrigued when I heard about WooPlus , a new dating app for plus-sized men and women to date freely, without the fear of being fat-shamed.
According to Michelle Li, one of the co-founders of WooPlus, the idea for the app came after viewing a viral “social experiment” video, where men reacted viciously to being set up on a Tinder date with a woman who ended up being fatter than she appeared in her photos. This same video cites a study that says women’s greatest fear in heterosexual dating is that they’ll be matched with a serial killer, and men’s greatest fear is that they’ll be matched with a woman who is fat.
If that’s actually true I couldn’t find the study , I can see how an app like WooPlus is meant to be a safe space of sorts. Of course, the idea also has its flaws: Does an app like WooPlus put too much emphasis on weight, rather than looking past someone’s size to get to know him or her as a person?
