Dating for heavy people
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.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.A size 18 woman, posting some of her least flattering, double chin-featuring pics, received 18 messages in five days.
But while that's true, all of the fat women in my life have at least one story of men explaining to them that they could never date because of her fatness.
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.
And there was little difference in the physical attractiveness of the men messaging – they were a range of ages, shapes and sizes.
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.
