Why are the girls so over weight on dating sites?

My friend just told me about these free dating sites called Plenty of Fish and OK Cupid. I made a profile just to test the waters and try it all. I went to "search for girls around my area", and most if not all of the girls are over weight. They weigh more than me at 200 lbs +. What's your experience with dating sites?

Come on, fat chicks need loving too.

Cuz all the skinny ones can get dates easier, thus dont have to resort to online dating.

If you're using dating sites or have been alone long enough for a friend to tell you to try them, consider that maybe you're not that great of a catch yourself. You're probably on the same level or lower than the 'fat chicks'.

You're painfully vapid, dude.Buckhannah

well how would you feel if you paid money, then all the girls on the site are over weight.

Because, but on a serious note, I honestly wouldn't know since I don't utilize dating sites

Why would you pay for a free site like OKCupid or PlentyofFish, though

you can search for free on match and eharmony, and the girls are over weight just like plenty of fish

Fat chicks need love too, man.

Nothing wrong with having some meat on your bones.

Are you a little plump too?

My dad said he was with a really big woman in the 1970s, and he let her be on top and almost blacked out. I pass this knowledge onto ye men who may be able to utilize it. Could save lives, if my father had been felled that day, I wouldn't exist.

must just be in your area, just made a dummy profile to see what was out there.

well,cause those sites are for losers, let's face it.

I don't use dating sites but I've seen more than one ad pop up for one where they take pictures from porn stars and other attractive camwhores and put generic names and ages next to their pictures claiming they're in your town looking for a date. Of course, anybody who actually looks like the pictures they post would easily be able to get a date, which is a possible reason you don't find too many attractive women on the site.

Well, meeting/talking to women in person is (normally) free.

That's what dating site is all about .... helping ugly people to get banged

basically agree, but I've found gems.

Anonymity. You still haven't figured out why you post here?
#24 Posted by MrsSolidSnake (4930 posts) -

People who are overweight or whatever else may have problems with going out and finding people in public?

Both of those sites are free though so what's your point? Maybe if you weren't such a dick you wouldn't need to be using dating sites.

Because hot girls don't need dating sites...

#28 Posted by Zeviander (9503 posts) -
Are you able to get a date through other means? If not, out seems your standards are significantly higher than they should be. And chubby/thick/fat women are way sexier than skin-and-bones women. It actually feels nice to hold them and there are no sharp edges.

In my 30's I screwed with AOL chat pickups....in my current state it was dismal but in a big city it was quite successful. I did a free trial on harmony or something 10 years ago and that was a waste of time. (in more ways than one) And now for a variety of reasons you could not pay me to join a dating site. Meh

Glad to see I'm not the only who think that. I might try those dating sites now since there is only skinny girls around me and I'm rarely attracted to that.

What if they're telling you to become a priest?

Because if they were hot and slim they wouldn't need to go on dating sites.

Just brouzed through the Plenty Of Fish site. Not too many fat chicks in my area. Anyways, I heard that the best sites for finding a good match are match.com and Eharmony.com

Just went on POF and there was an old lady calling herself "sexy latina female."

Oh dear.

It depends on the area, but generally men outnumber women at least 2-1. So even bigger women have better odds of finding someone to date them there. For the thinner, prettier girls, they are usually there for an ego boost or looking for someone that is pretty much a 10 to them. They easily can get hundreds of messages in just the first few days they join, though often they get extremely simple ones or very lewd ones or ones from people that they would have absolutely no interest. I'm sure if you live in a big city like NYC or Chicago, a dating website would be great since you have just sheer numbers on your side. The more outside of it the more you will have to lower your standards to find someone. On dating sites it isnt the number of larger women on it that annoys me, but the fact that so many believe they are "average". A 5'3" girl weighing close to 200lbs is not even close to average or even a few extra pounds lol. A ton of guys get weeded out of searches by women by height and guys mostly try to weed out heavier girls, but it is much harder because it so subjective to the individual.

Mostly this. Dating sites are for women.

[QUOTE="dkdk999"] ouch Xile, he wasn't even insulting them.

The fact that he's focusing on the fact that they're overweight and nothing else is about as insulting as saying a dating site is full of black women because black men like white girls and white men don't date black women. If not to insult them, what point was there in making the thread, or at least the thread the way he did? He could have simply said, my friends got me to join a dating site, what are your experiences with them, and left it at that. But he didn't, because his aim was to talk about how he saw a ton of gross fat girls on PoF. It's extremely clear from his subsequent posts that he is making a jab at how unattractive overweight women are. That was the point of this thread for him.

You don't have to be a genius to figure this one out.

This is a dumb question that a little common sense could answer.  Wtf did you expect?  Lingerie models!?

I think he was saying that he had hoped for better... nothing more. Given that it's a dating site, I think a critical opinion is normal. He didn't go there to make best friends for life.

There's a decent amount of good looking girls on PoF around here. Just gotta look
