Man poses as woman on dating site to prove his point. Man assumes women have it easy because they get a ton of attention.This is the online dating dilemma that faces MILLIONS of people each day.If I’m a 5’4” man, I know that it’s going to be hard to get a date if I tell the truth.Seemingly nice dudes in quite esteemed careers asking to hook up in 24 hours and sending them naked pics of myself despite multiple times telling them that I didn’t want to.” As a male coach for smart, strong, successful women, I apologize on behalf of all men. But they really don’t get what it’s like to walk a mile in your shoes.I wrote about this in Finding the One Online extensively – what it’s like to be a woman dating online and how men need to up their games to connect.I have been online dating for about two months and it’s been so-so thus far. I’m 5’3″ and an hourglass-ish size 10, so while I’m not obese, I’m definitely not “athletic and toned.” I chose pictures that I think accurately show this.
I have no idea why I came up with them btw – it’s not even like A Night To Remember was stuck in my head.So, to find out if men like fat women, I created two identical online dating profiles of me size 18 and size 10 to find out.I should point out that I’m an 18 at this point and happy to use the word fat because I find ‘plus size’ patronising and I mentally think of it as phat instead. I set up these profiles on free online dating site OKCupid.I’ve never bought into the lie, popular with some elements of the media, that everything will be better when you’re thin.But, as a single woman trying everything I can to increase my chances of finding The One, I was interested to see how much of an issue size is for single men.
