“The idea that it is somehow pejorative I think just doesn’t hold water, just by the fact that people are choosing to self-identify that way,” he told ABC.“I think it is an obvious feature of a dating site.” Ok Cupid, originally launched under a different name by a group of Harvard students, has claimed more than 3 million users. Wading through “Show me your tits” and “Let me smell your shoes (panties, seat cushions of your couch, whatever)” messages makes you realize the pickings are slim. The way I see it, a bitch has to have standards (mostly).Walking hand-in-hand with those standards are our preferences. They affect and help determine which guy on which dating app we will decide to give the time of day to, and vice versa. The supreme lack of standards and preferences a fat girl is required to have by the online dating gods was brought to my attention one day, while I was in conversation with a traditionally attractive white guy with a secret “ugly” past. As he complained about women acting interested in him until he smiled, I listened, slightly amused.I resented how his body had become a barrier between us, though not in the way I had expected.
Or, if you’re into chubby prospects, you can filter everybody else out.
What really bothers me is having to send a photo to online dating sites.
A photo isn't the person – and for someone like myself who isn’t that photogenic, I make a much better impression face-to-face.
Don’t want your Web dating service matching you up with any fatties? Ok Cupid.com, which bills itself as “The best dating site on Earth,” is now allowing users to filter their prospects by “body type.” The 9-year-old site, whose basic service is free, is charging a filtering fee, of .95 to a month, for its A-list members.
It allows them to hide the body types they’re not attracted to.
