An Experiment About Online Dating and Body Bias

People who have tried online dating are well aware of many of the associated challenges. The fact that so many people manage to focus almost exclusively on appearances when it comes to online dating makes things more difficult for everyone. This video portrays a social experiment in which a very attractive woman who posted pictures of herself on a dating website wears a fat suit to the actual dates, and the reactions of her dates are recorded.

She meets with five dates during the video. Four of them left shortly after meeting with her, and all of them made subtle or overt rude comments about her appearance and size. Some viewers might be critical of the quality of the makeup that they used on her, and some people might argue about the quality of these results. However, it is still certainly an upsetting and dramatic presentation. This is a video that will get people talking on Facebook.
