If you are a plus size or fat person, you know how difficult it is to date. Tinder is notorious for its users fat shamingand this video shows how people react to their real-life dates being bigger than what they expected.

It was that video that inspired WooPlusan app exclusively for the plus size dating community. There are several websites dedicated to plus size or fat dating, but most cater to feederism and especially the fetishization of fat people. However, this app is different. Some hater body-shamed an unsuspecting woman on the London Tube.

As a plus size person, the only issue I've had with dating is falling for the absolute wrong people, but that's an entirely different post and possible therapy session. However, I was told by society that I would never find love because of my size and that I was not deserving of love because of my body, a concept that many fat or plus size people are familiar with. I downloaded the app and gave it a try. I started off with a very closed mind; I expected this to be yet another fat fetish dating site.

However, I was pleasantly surprised. Cofounder Michelle Li says it's no mistake the model Best websites for plus size dating app similar to Tinder. Despite the swipe model, there are several differences. 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.
