Tinder Fat-Suit Social Experiment

Social Experiment Reveals Which Gender Is More Shallow Dating Online

Who's more shallow on Tinder: men or women? You may not be surprised by the results of this gender experiment, but it doesn't make it any less appalling. Dating site Simple Pickup is behind the experiment, in which they had an attractive, thin girl wear a fat suit on a number of first Tinder dates and then did the same thing with a guy in the fat suit. In the first video, the guys, predictably, are not happy with the switch-up, with responses varying from awkwardly calling her out for not looking like her photos to getting angry with her for "lying" before storming off. One guy even ditches her middate, saying he just needed to use the restroom.

When the roles are reversed and it's a guy in the fat suit, the women are polite, tactful, and engaging. They don't treat him like garbage. In fact, they all stick it out for the full date, giving him advice on what to do in the city and joking around with him, and one even plants a kiss on him at the end. Let this be a valuable lesson: women are awesome. I kid. But seriously, while we should all be honest with our online dating profiles, let's try to show a little decency. Just because you don't have an instant attraction with someone you're meeting for the first time IRL, give them the courtesy of treating them like a human being.

Here's the guy version:
