Former America’s Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson has launched a niche dating site especially for plus-size women. Called ‘The Big and the Beautiful’. Thompson got the idea after becoming fed up with her own struggles to find a date online.
Thompson, 24, tells the New York Post of her own personal struggles with online dating sites. ‘I would call myself a “plus-sized model”… guys would expect me to be a really big girl,’ she tells the newspaper. ‘But if I said: “I’m a model”, they were disappointed that I’m bigger. Either way, I wasn’t what the guy was looking for.’
Women will pay $40 a month to find love on the new dating site.
In another interview Thompson tells celebrity website Radar Online: ‘I created this site so people don’t have to stress over their profile, but can focus on the fun and excitement of meeting and dating other incredible people of all shapes and sizes.’ To which Thompson adds, ‘Curvy girls like sex, too.’
She says: ‘I created this site for real women with real curves looking for real pleasure.’ and added
‘Unlike other dating sites where members feel pressured to fit a certain mould, posting older ‘flattering’ pictures or even lying on their dating profiles, everyone here has the freedom to be their true selves’.
The team at Dating for Girls wish Whitney every success with her new venture.
