Am I the only one who keeps reading the title as "Tinder weight lifter"..?

Everyone reads what they want it to read, I guess...

I'm guessing you don't use Tinder?

Almost everyone on there is a weightlifter. And I'm only looking at the women.

Most of the likes I get are from fat ones. The gall of them. I'm in good shape. Why would they think I'm interested in an over weight person?
It is not your shape that should matter to these girls.






It's probably your facial appearance. Sadly not much you can do there so settle for what Tinder gives you.......... Also how do you know you get likes from "fat people" unless you like them yourself.

I think you are suppressing your real feelings and have a fetish for the curves.

If tinder works the way I think it does, probably should stop swiping right then OP.

Nope. Age and distance are your only options other than gender. A lot of people do mention their height on profile and have seen "I'm a bigger girl" on a few too.

I have on my tinder bio saying no to the following:
Big units
Baby mamas
Tattoos
Vegans

A lot of bigger girls can be quite deceptive with their profile pics. Snapchat filters and generous angles can give unsuspecting gents like the OP the impression that the young wan he’s talking to is a size 10 or below. This is not cool. That’s like me standing on a crate pretending to be 6”5’

People would only lie about their weight anyway. The amount of "6 foot" guys I used to meet on tinder that were more like 5"7 was astounding.

But isn't that because of the whole women won't date shortarse guys?....
conversely... guys don't want big girls...so we see profile pics taken from a height and with cheeks sucked in ...
I know that they are both generalisations... but there is more than a few people who that would refer to on dating sites

Women will go for taller, men will go for slimmer, so the shorter and fatter sorts will lie.

It's a while since I've online dated but I do remember putting a full-body shot up specifically because I kept being asked for one when I got into conversations with guys - presumably in a "making sure she's not deceptively twice the alleged size" kind of way.

Don't get why people bother if the objective is to pick up dates, it's not like you can keep up the lie in person!
