Tinder For Plus-Size People? WooPlus Is Here!
Dating in the 21st Century is interestingly diverse. The online hype has taken romance into a whole new level with Tinder-like niche dating apps catering to various preferences- Star Wars enthusiasts, Anime lovers, Pet owners, and so much more. They usually fill in the gaps where traditional dating fails. While niche dating apps have become commonplace, plus-size people remain largely cut-off from the dating scene until now.
WooPlus has come to the rescue of plus-size men and women who couldn't get the attention they deserve from conventional dating sites. It is an emerging platform that responds to a growing yet marginalized market of romantic hopefuls who feel the need for an accepting dynamic community.
The whole of enterprise of creating an app for big-sized women was borne out of frustration with the traditional size-conscious dating scene. After watching a viral video on YouTube showing a woman getting humiliated by men for her un-datable figuresque, WooPlus creators Neil Raman and Michelle Li thought of offering a safe refuge for plus size men and women minus the judgmental come-ons as stated by Metro.
"Marginalization of people with atypical bodies is still a sensitive social stigma for many people involved in online dating. My sister experienced this herself. It was very painful and unfair. I decided to solve this problem and create an app just for big girls," remarked Raman as quoted saying by People Magazine.
Currently, the new dating site has just reached a milestone of attracting 10, 000 registered users and counting since its launching in November last year.
The co-founders are hoping that their Tinder-inspired creation for Big Beautiful Women (BBW) will spell an end to an excruciatingly painful experience that large-sized women often have to endure in search of prospective dating partner.
"We're just trying to provide a comfortable environment for women who happen to be a little larger. It's for women of all different bodies and sizes. But we wanted to show that you don't need to have a low BMI [body mass index] to be attractive," said Li as mentioned in a report by The Daily Dot.
