Here's what they had to say: Why don't you date fat women?
Online dating is rough enough without some guy responding to a message by saying "hit the gym and then we'll talk" (totally true, totally happened to me.) These answers reinforced what I already knew to be true: We have to change the way we treat fat women.
There will always be the inappropriate or lewd comment, but mostly I saw a lot of people being kind, especially women being kind to other women, which I'm all about: I swiped right to everyone just to see what kind of messages I got.
I didn't really respond to any, but for the most part it reminded me of the times I have used other dating apps in the past: some were polite, some were crude, some quoted Adele, the usual:.
But like most humans, us fat people want people to love us for who we are, not for our bodies, or not because of our bodies.
My biggest complaint of the app is last names appear on profiles.
In our culture, people are taught, unfortunately, that being fat is bad. A fat person is just as worthy of love, respect, and kindness as any other person.
I've always wanted to know what goes on inside the heads of men who refuse to date a woman just because she is fat.
While people can post back and forth publicly on the photos, unless you pay real money to send the user a "gift" (cartoon flowers or chocolates), you cannot privately message them.On the one hand, as a sex writer, I understand that people are attracted to different things, so I wanted to keep an open mind.
