Hodge describes the voting system employed in the screening stage as ‘fair and democratic’.This is an online dating site for plus-sized singles.The international site Beautiful threw out members after they posted photos "revealing that they have let themselves go," according to a company statement.
Hodge likens Beautiful People to Mensa and national football teams, insofar as a theme of exclusion runs through all three, and that his own website simply ‘removes the first hurdle in dating’, in the same way that a football team might audition prospective players, and Mensa sets out intelligence and aptitude tests for its applicants.
It bills itself as “a dating site where existing members hold the key to the door.” Turns out, the site maybe should have put them in charge of server security, as well.
The personal data of 1.1 million members is currently for sale on the black market, after hackers took it from an insecure database.
This niche dating site currently has slightly more men than women members (44% vs 56% as of September 2009) and it has enjoyed a steady growth in new members during the past few years.
The service is designed strictly for you to meet and communicate with singles by using the tools provided.
