Men love plus size women dating
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.
It’s something many single people wonder, myself included.
My weight has fluctuated dramatically throughout my life – I was a fat child, a thin teenager, a chubby sixth former, a skinny student and so on, up and down through my adult life.
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’.
I also changed the wording slightly just in case OKCupid cottoned on and took them down.
I’ve never bought into the lie, popular with some elements of the media, that everything will be better when you’re thin.
That is important to me because I have lost 100 pounds before. I think it's harder for most BBW women to go to the bars and pick a guy up because they don't know if the guy is interested or not. If that's the body type they're interested in, online dating makes that a lot easier.
