Big girls need love too! This sounds incredibly shallow. Apparently there’s a speed dating event just for men who like their cakes petite… and they’re willing to even check your dress size at the door!
Speed Dating Event For Men Who Like Skinny Women Checks Dress Sizes At The Door
Just peep the event description:
Date women size 0-8.
“We all have relationship ‘deal-breakers’, and that does not make us shallow, we’re just single New Yorkers that know what we want and are attracted to. Obviously there is more to it than just height or size, but for many of us that initial “attraction” factor is at least a starting point.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the average clothing size for adult women in the United States is a 14, making our upcoming “Skinny Minny” night for svelte women size 0-8 anything but average. Guys, no need to worry about meeting a biggie-size chick “down-sizing” to an 8 like when you’re dating online. We’ll be checking labels at the door!
And they take it so far that once the clothing item is checked they write down the size number on a badge that the woman has to wear for the duration of the event!!! GTFOHWTBS!!!!
The woman who co-founded the service defended it to MailOnline:
Co-founder, Amber Soletti, told MailOnline about the strict door policy for the ‘Skinny Minny’ event: ‘If [we get] any flack from women we explain that “fair is fair” and that our “Size Matters” Speed Dating event for women who want to date men 6’1″+ that we measure the men and confirm they are all tall enough to participate as well.’
SMH. Do you think this is just another means of cutting to the chase or is this just encouraging size-ism???
