Plus size speed dating
With the surplus of niche dating sites that have been popping up, singles can find quite specific matches for themselves--everything from farmers to Trekkies.

Can I assume that men that are smaller than 8 inches need not bother either?
If you are a plus size or fat person, you know how difficult it is to date.
