It baffles me that people think that men can only like one type of woman!
Well, I never really thought I would write this blog. I decided to cool down and wait 24 hours before I blurted it all out here. So, for starters, I have had two of the most amazing men in my life and two wonderful long term relationships in my life; I count myself super grateful and blessed.
As a result, there haven’t been many positive remarks made by plus sized users,” Becky Han, a member of the Woo Plus marketing team, told However, the app has received quite a bit of criticism, especially with one particular aspect: While women must be plus-size to use the app, men don’t have to be, which many feel gives the app a “fetishizing” quality while further categorizing plus-size women as “other.” “For me it feels that instead of addressing the way plus-size women are treated in society – and most certainly on the dating scene – we are having to further separate them,”London-based plus-size blogger Callie Thorpe told .

The app was launched to help “BBW (big beautiful women), BHM (big handsome men), plus-size singles and fat admirers” find love.
“The unfortunate reality is that the current dating environment is very cruel to bigger girls,” the app’s San Francisco-based CEO Neil Raman told Raman got the idea in 2014, when the dating website Simple Pickup conducted a social experiment in which a woman showed up to her Tinder dates wearing a fat suit, eliciting cruel and frustrated responses from her dates.

Unfortunately, a large number of curvy women may have had to go through abuse (mental, and possibly physical) and ridicule in their younger, and even adult years. It's earned confidence that also doubles as a victory lap for a woman who's determined to win at life.
Yet, plus-size women account for, on average, 1 to 2% of the bodies represented in mainstream media.
