Overweight woman dating true online dating reviews

Rated 3.82/5 based on 540 customer reviews

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.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.That’s why I’m wearing that white skirt – to cover up my ‘massive belly’ and ‘big thighs’.A date with me now would be way more fun than it would have been then.If I went back to a 10 I’d mourn the loss of my boobs more than celebrate my flatter stomach. Hopefully then you will attract someone who likes the version of yourself you’ve chosen as much as you do.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.

When I was thinner I was more self-conscious, less confident around men and much more uptight.

This problem only seems to be magnified by another byproduct of conservative Christian culture: the pressure to be married.

As a single woman, I have often felt like an outlier in the church.

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.
