16 18 dating sites Asainsex
A size 18 woman, posting some of her least flattering, double chin-featuring pics, received 18 messages in five days.
That’s 18 more than the bodyshaming community might have you expect.
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.
Thin me received more than double the attention – 36 messages, 211 likes and 210 visits.
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 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.
I also changed the wording slightly just in case OKCupid cottoned on and took them down.One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
