Too fat for online dating
I’ve never bought into the lie, popular with some elements of the media, that everything will be better when you’re thin.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.
I also changed the wording slightly just in case OKCupid cottoned on and took them down.
At size 10, when I looked in the mirror all I thought was ‘could do better’.
The results Over the course of five days, fat me received 18 messages, 74 likes and 81 visits.
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.
