Skip ! Story from Relationships. When it comes to dating, I was something of a late bloomer. Around the time my friends started losing their virginities and acquiring partners, I alternated between feeling too ashamed of my fat body even to consider letting anyone else see it and presuming that no one would want to look at me naked in the first place. Fast-forward to early university and the discovery of fat acceptance communities online, and I started dipping my toe into the metaphorical hook-up pool.

I believe fat fetishism is only demonised because fatness as a whole is demonised; if fatness is 'bad', so too must be the people who are attracted to it.

My favourite thing about this app is the potential for fat friendship, though. I find it extremely empowering to see other fat people of all genders owning their bodies in raw, unapologetic ways.

WooPlus is the self-described "dating app for curvy people to enjoy dating and find love". I might go as far to describe it as the most wholesome among them. In terms of usability, it really does feel like a social network, with a grid-like home similar to Instagram on which you can browse through people who are nearby.
My personal preference when it comes to my romantic life is to find folks who are specifically into bodies like mine. Quite frankly, I spend enough time navigating fat-phobia on my social media feeds and in day-to-day life to want to risk even more of it in an intimate setting.
