Dating for fat chicks
Like Tinder, you can only talk to each other if you’ve mutually “liked” each other’s profiles.
And if you’re connected, and you’re really trying to get noticed, you can send a “charm” to her inbox, which lets her know you’re interested.
The more you score with someone, the more “score history” you build, which you can then use to break the ice and use as conversation topics.
“Marginalization of people with atypical bodies is still a sensitive social stigma for many people involved in online dating,” co-founder Neil Raman tells PEOPLE. So Raman, along with co-founder Michelle Li, built a Tinder-like interface where users can also swipe yes or no to the plus-size singles.
Score automatically pulls your Facebook profile picture from your page, which you can keep or swap for another, and prompts you to select three more—all of which are kept blurred, or hidden.
Once you “Score” with someone, your profile picture will be unlocked; the more you score, the more your profile will open up to your pursuer.
If there’s a match, they get 48 hours to message each other.
Raman and Li wanted to create a dating app that focuses on physical looks (like most of the ones on the market), but make it more welcoming for plus-size people.
