Love has no sex, size, weight." According to co-founder Michelle Li, “Although we know that on regular dating apps, many women have experienced unfair treatment, we were still shocked at the final result of this study.
"Our mission at Woo Plus is to create many more female-friendly features, so bigger women have user-friendly and practical dating tools, and are treated with respect.
Michelle adds: “Someone once accused Woo Plus of segregating plus-sized women from the mainstream, and I think this survey may be the best evidence for the value and real necessity of Woo Plus.
