Dating really fat men
The rest of the profile details were the same for both – Funnily enough, when that ‘thin’ me bikini shot was taken, I still thought I was fat.
The results Over the course of five days, fat me received 18 messages, 74 likes and 81 visits.
Thin me received more than double the attention – 36 messages, 211 likes and 210 visits.
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.
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.
