Dating websites have always favoured those who posted more attractive photographs.But a new site, discriminates against size too - you have to be 'larger than life' to join.The agency is the latest venture for serial dating entrepreneur Howard James, the creator of The Ugly Bug Ball - the world's first dating site for the 'aesthetically challenged'.Mr James said it will offer the UK's estimated 12 million overweight men and women a 'much-needed' service.To begin, I'd like to say that I've been on both sides of the weight spectrum. As a curvy girl, I found that the men who emailed me (and emailed me BACK - I always took initiative for my own dating success) were much more compatible. My message here for all of you folks who are on Gabriel Iglesias' fatness scale - big, healthy, husky, fluffy, and daaaamn! Sure, there are websites that cater to BBW singles, and there are many people who find those to be great niche sites. I credit them to my dating profile text, my recent pictures, and the fact that I got out there and sent a few emails a day. So don't worry, fluffy singles of the world, there really are great people out there who want to meet you and a special one who will want to love you forever!I've been thin and athletic and I've been (according to BMI) obese. But you can find love on a larger, traditional dating site too. To find out more about the dating site mentioned in this post, read some of our reviews and for a dating site which caters directly to larger singles, see our BBW Personals Plus review.
The UK's first online agency for those blessed with 'natural curves' went live today and almost 1,000 applications to join the site were submitted within the first 12 hours.
But according to the site's guidelines', slim people 'need not apply'.
