These days, online dating is basically just dating. These apps have entirely changed the way our society views dating and relationships. Being a plus size woman, however, there come even more challenges than the usual. Since the start of my dating app days, I have learned a lot about how to navigate these apps in a way that is empowering and builds my confidence rather than doing the opposite.

The message is simple, welcoming and embodies the entire premise of the dating app, which is deed to connect "big beautiful women, dadbod and plus size singles. The idea came about after a YouTube video detailing a social experiment featured above made the rounds online.
It wasn't like she had a poor personality. She was just larger than expected, and that completely turned the table around for the guys she had been conversing with online.
That really struck a chord with us. And why wouldn't it? After all, as Li points out, not every person looking for love necessarily has a 'but it must come in a size eight' clause attached.
We are absolutely trying to work away from that. It is what it is, and it's important to be comfortable in your own skin.
Launched in Novemberthe app which is free now has over 35, members worldwide and continues to grow. Based on the successful Tinder model, users can swipe left or right on nearby profiles and see if there's a match in the works. We try to encourage people to post pictures of themselves and be happy in the skin they're in.
Overall, that's turned out really well for us, and we are receiving lots of positive feedback. Though the site encourages members of both BBW big beautiful women and BHM big handsome menLi says at the moment, women are the prime focus.
