Dating a fat woman
A couple of days before April Fools' Day, the popular dating platform introduced a fictitious "height verification badge (HVB)".
"It's come to our attention that most of you 5'10ers out there are actually 5'6"," explained the company in a blog post. This type of dishonestly doesn't just hurt your matches - it hurts us, too." The post on "height-fishing" (a play on cat-fishing) went on to explain the far-fetched science behind the height verification tool, but the joke was lost on a number of men who took to social media forums to debate the glaring double standards.
A few seconds into the kiss, I heard the sound of a group of guys laughing. I was so embarrassed that I kept kissing him because I thought that it would make it worse if he realised that I knew what was happening.
Only a couple of weeks later, I chatted to a dreadful guy in a bar.
I only spoke to him for ten minutes when he suddenly started laughing and said, 'I can’t believe you thought I was going to fuck you. The loud music in the bar made it impossible for him to hear what I shouted at him as he was walking away.
Obese women, on the other hand, are sick of being fetishised. It is not a big sacrifice that I have made, cutting out nightclubs. Again, I am not a fan of people or loud, fast music.If Tinder are going to introduce a height verification tool aimed at men, they argued, well then they ought to introduce a weight verification tool aimed at women."I have friends who have been fat-fished," explained one Reddit user. Why the hell should guys show their height if women won't show their weight? The backlash wasn't quite the reaction that Tinder's marketing team was anticipating, but this dating site user raised a valid point nonetheless.
