That’s why we developed Yours Dating; an online experience tailored specifically for people looking to connect with like-minded individuals.
There was nothing dramatically different in the content of the messages – some men just sent a ‘hi’, some wrote essays, some tried one-liners and others just opted for old-fashioned compliments.
And there was little difference in the physical attractiveness of the men messaging – they were a range of ages, shapes and sizes.
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.
Our goal is simple - to add love, romance and fun to the lives of single people.
We're one of the oldest and best known dating communities on the web, and we have a unique, and very popular, secret weapon - our intelligent two-way matching feature.
That’s 18 more than the bodyshaming community might have you expect.
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.
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.
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’.
