I gave them my email, and eventually, we tracked down the jerk who made a Bumble bio aimed at fat-shaming girls.
Each is said to have received an email encouraging them to re-apply when they are back to looking their best.They have also been sent details of recommended boot camps.They wanted something honest about being my size and dating in Los Angeles.When they folded, it was returned to me to do as I wish.Here’s how Stephanie fared in one week compared to me.
Stephanie’s in-mail messages were generally crafted better.
(Crown), confirmed in hard facts what many heterosexual, single Black women already suspected about the online dating game: the odds are stacked, and not in our favor.
On the Ok Trends blog, Rudder reports, “82% of non-Black men on Ok Cupid show some bias against Black women.” Rudder goes on to say in his book that this means, “being Black basically costs you about three-quarters of a star [out of five] in your rating, even if you’re at the top.” Rudder’s findings certainly back the lackluster experience that I’ve endured on online dating sites, but even despite the cold hard data, I couldn’t help but wonder if other races of women really get more love.
A few weeks ago, a woman submitted the story of a guy who fat shamed her on Bumble to “Boom, Ghosted.”The two matched on the dating app and immediately hit it off.
Then, they went on what she thought was a pretty good first date.
But this is where things took a turn for the worse.
