Dating website for obese people
So it's not hard to imagine why plus-sized women are often ignored, ridiculed, and/or fetishized on dating apps.Fortunately, sites seem to be trying to combat this problem.
"In terms of finding love, you think about romantic comedies and advertisements depicting romance, and it's almost always about a thin woman.We have this really narrow definition about who is valuable, and that rarely includes women at all, let alone women of color and women who are plus."When plus-size women are represented, they're not the main characters.Instead they're the funny friend, or the helper, and they rarely find themselves in the center of romantic plot points.This may sound like pure optics, but apparently it's working: "Since we launched the pledge, we've seen decreases in harassment, both from reports and our machine-learning technology that detects harassing language," says Melissa Hobley, the chief marketing officer of Ok Cupid."We know that women in particular are really frustrated at how dating apps are set up to be incredibly focused on appearance.
