Fat suit dating experiment, editors' picks
The woman paired with Willy seem willing to interpret his offensive remarks as humor or confidence, while the men paired with Sarah generally didn't stick around long enough to listen to her say much at all. I did see the social experience and I had my own issues with it. You show up for a date with someone you met online, and that person looks markedly different than he or she did in photos.
In fact, I thought the men acted just like men. However, my issue with the videos lie in the fact that I believe they were not fat suit dating experiment.

I was not surprised at all by the results. Shell October 2, at 6: Chigozirim Brinxs October 4, at 4: Katie Chalk it up to Better Luck October 2, at 8: Simple Pickup conducted the same exact experiment with the roles reversed, using a male participant and female Tinder matches, and the results were shockingly different. I also had issues with this one. False identities has been a hot topic on this blog.
I think a similar result could have been achieved had they made both the man and woman look more realistic. Then, before the date, they used body adhesives and makeup to make her appear physically larger than in her photos.
The five male suitors who were greeted with a larger-than-expected date were not only surprised; many were visibly dismayed and even hostile. I just am not into this kind of thing.
For men and women, the responses are dramatically different -- and definitely a bit sexist. The website also outfitted a male subject, "Willy," in a fat suit before sending him on five Tinder dates with women ; Simple Pickup hid cameras around the couples in both scenarios to capture the unwitting Tinder dates' reactions to their very-different-IRL matches.
I thought it was manipulative for sure.
Consider this a lesson in how not to be a douchebag on a date — if not out of human decency, then because you never know when a hidden camera might be filming your every move for the entire Internet. The bottom line is: My husband who is normal weight heat everything he wants and eats all night long and never gains weight.
