Attention plus-size ladies frustrated with other dating apps, Woo Plus is here: an app specifically for “Plus-size singles and their admirers.” Woo Plus features women and men of all shapes – but primarily plus-size – in the hopes that a specialized app will make it easier for people to find their perfect match, especially for people who are ignored on dating sites because of their size. I decided to solve this problem and create an app just for big girls.” Along with his sister’s experience, Raman got the idea for Woo Plus from a social experiment posted on You Tube in 2014, where one girl shocked a series of Tinder dates when she showed up wearing a fat suit, looking around 70 lbs. The video quickly racked up 23 million views, and the guys’ rude reactions showed how hard it can be to date when plus-size.“Marginalization of people with atypical bodies is still a sensitive social stigma for many people involved in online dating,” co-founder Neil Raman tells PEOPLE. So Raman, along with co-founder Michelle Li, built a Tinder-like interface where users can also swipe yes or no to the plus-size singles.If there’s a match, they get 48 hours to message each other.Raman and Li wanted to create a dating app that focuses on physical looks (like most of the ones on the market), but make it more welcoming for plus-size people.Tinder reported 50 million users with 12 million users joining every day as of 2014, and Ok Cupid reported having 12 million users in 2014.Perhaps because Woo Plus's user base is comparatively small, there aren't enough people to make it awful — yet.there are over 25,000 users with 2,000 new signups every day.

There will always be the inappropriate or lewd comment, but mostly I saw a lot of people being kind, especially women being kind to other women, which I'm all about: I swiped right to everyone just to see what kind of messages I got.

"It's a tried and true method, so we went with what works." Despite the swipe model, there are several differences.

First, you can only like a few people a day, unless you invite friends to join the app, an obvious attempt at getting more users.

“We hope big girls can seek love and friendship in a comfortable and non-discriminating environment while enjoying the fun to swipe and get matched.” Of course, they haven’t been immune from criticism, with people accusing Woo Plus of singling out plus-size daters.

“Someone even wrote an article to ask ‘Do we really need a plus-size dating app?
