Dating is complicated enough.
And, I have nothing against people who possess a quiet confidence & feel that they are beautiful. Nothing wrong with a healthy self-esteem…
But online dating sites should not make it even more complicated for us in the World-O-Singledom to
meet other potential partners just bc we ate a little extra pumpkin pie over the Holiday season.

A couple of 20-Somethings were cruising through the West Village in Dallas and were disgusted when they heard about actions of a dating website called BeautifulPeople.com. The site just kicked out about 5,000 members for gaining weight over the holiday season.
“You know, I just don’t think that’s fair,” said Hillary Kinzler. “Everybody gains weight after the holidays.”
But, the founders of this hotties only website think it is fair. “Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded,” said Robert Hintze, founder of BeautifulPeople.com
The members were kicked out when they posted updated photos on the site for the new year showing that they packed on a few pounds. BeautifulPeople.com is also predominately member driven. If you want to get into the dating site you have to submit a picture and put in your profile. Then members get about two days or so to decide if you’re beautiful enough to join them.
Uhm, CEO’s using the term ‘Fatties’? Really? Your thoughts, dahlings…
