Findings in WooPlus survey support statements made in recent viral TikTok post
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 15, 2021 – TikTok user Niktoks recently went viral after expressing her surprise that most men she’s encountered on the plus-size dating app, WooPlus, are “ripped gym bros.”
Other users quickly added their own experiences, confirming that fit men are often attracted to curvy women. This is nothing new for WooPlus, an inclusive plus-size dating app founded in 2015 that connects plus-sized people to a community where they can enjoy dating and find love.
A recent survey of 2,385 female WooPlus users found that 82% of them have matched with a “gym guy” and had very nice conversations.
One WooPlus female user stated, “Generally on regular dating apps I assume they wouldn’t be interested… I don’t have the confidence to be with someone who’s in great shape. Being on this app has opened my eyes a bit!”
The survey findings and user feedback may be surprising to some people due to stereotypes about body size. One TikTok user commented, ”Sometimes I don’t even swipe on guys if they are gym rats bc I feel like they’re too fit and are going to think I’m too fat for them so I don’t bother.”
WooPlus hopes to change the way people think about dating by building an inclusive community for people of all body sizes.
“This is not a surprising phenomenon. It’s the stigma or society that makes us think that fit men don’t like big girls or they wouldn’t go for a curvy woman,” said WooPlus founder and CEO Neil Raman. “Gym guys even tell us that they could feel very inadequate at times when girls don’t like them back. So girls, give them a chance! Your beauty, confidence, and all that great personalities fit men see that regardless of size.”
In the last few years, TikTok has become a powerful tool for sharing new experiences and perspectives. The app is often a platform to participate in digital activism, cultural movements, and the latest trends, according to BBC.
WooPlus, founded in 2015, is the dating app for curvy people to enjoy dating and find love. Beyond that, it’s also an inclusive lifestyle choice for curvy people to feel attractive, confident, and loved for who they are. Today with over 6,000,000 members globally, WooPlus is available on both the App Store and Google Play; it has been featured on BBC, Forbes, People, and more.
