Each day, your attractive photos will be visited by hundreds of curve lovers.
BBWCupid is a leading BBW dating site for plus size singles interested in serious dating.
This is a great idea, because it's easy for us to "like" people, but starting a conversation, now that's scary.
“The unfortunate reality is that the current dating environment is very cruel to bigger girls,” the app’s San Francisco-based CEO Neil Raman told Raman got the idea in 2014, when the dating website Simple Pickup conducted a social experiment in which a woman showed up to her Tinder dates wearing a fat suit, eliciting cruel and frustrated responses from her dates.
Raman and co-founder, Michelle Li, built Woo Plus, which has a Tinder-like interface that allows you to swipe yes or no to plus-size singles; matches are given 48 hours to message each other.
Before being matched, however, you’re required to fill out a profile, asked about your body type and body shape (with options ranging from “inverted triangle” to “rounded/apple.” “Tinder relies on a match being made between two individuals depending more on physical appearance.
As a result, there haven’t been many positive remarks made by plus sized users,” Becky Han, a member of the Woo Plus marketing team, told However, the app has received quite a bit of criticism, especially with one particular aspect: While women must be plus-size to use the app, men don’t have to be, which many feel gives the app a “fetishizing” quality while further categorizing plus-size women as “other.” “For me it feels that instead of addressing the way plus-size women are treated in society – and most certainly on the dating scene – we are having to further separate them,”London-based plus-size blogger Callie Thorpe told .
Now, the Internet is divided over a new app that just launched in November: Woo Plus, which is specifically geared toward plus-size women.
The app was launched to help “BBW (big beautiful women), BHM (big handsome men), plus-size singles and fat admirers” find love.
In Woo Plus, connecting with anyone is comfortable and safe. I found a gentleman here who is really nice and definitely my type.
Thank you for helping me find a gorgeous girl here!! It was love at first sight, and he proposed to me six weeks later.
First, you can only like a few people a day, unless you invite friends to join the app, an obvious attempt at getting more users.
Second, if you don't interact with the user within 48 hours of you both mutually liking each other, the "like" disappears and you lose your opportunity to talk to them, a feature that prevents endless "likes" with no contact.
Every dating app has its supporters and its naysayers.
