Ok Cupid said singles are going to size up their date prospects according to what they consider physically attractive anyway, so the site is doing nothing different from what goes on in bars and clubs.
But outraged critics said the body-type filter is a form of online discrimination.
Don’t want your Web dating service matching you up with any fatties? Ok Cupid.com, which bills itself as “The best dating site on Earth,” is now allowing users to filter their prospects by “body type.” The 9-year-old site, whose basic service is free, is charging a filtering fee, of $4.95 to $10 a month, for its A-list members.
It allows them to hide the body types they’re not attracted to.
Also, EVERY man and woman should post a full body, RECENT and accurate, photo on their dating profile.
