Ugly Bug Ball: Dating site for the ugly in UK

provided link not advised for women in pregnancy.

Just read online about it, and checked their website.
They claim that 50% of UK daters are "physically challenged".
Wonder if the rate changes with respect to location.
The latest members section got me

Chatteris, Cambridgeshire in the UK would probably have a lot of members.
So much incest there.

Re: Ugly Bug Ball: Dating site for the ugly in UK

That site can't be serious... surely even really ugly people don't like to be actually told point blank that they are ugly... right? That dating site doesn't exactly exercise sublety with describing its target audience.

5 Ugly Truths About Dating

1. Half of UK daters arenít pretty so instead of fishing in a small pool of prettiness and getting nowhere dive into an ocean of uglies and have more choice.

Pie Chart

2. Ugly people are a better calibre of human - pretty people generally arenít very nice and are often a bit shallow.

3. Ugly people have had a tougher life and therefore tend to be more considerate and more loyal. A recent TUBB survey also proved that they try harder in bed.

4. Once with an ugly partner it is unlikely that anyone will try and take them from you meaning you can let yourself go completely once youíre together.

5. In these straightened times TUBB is cheaper as a) We donít charge much as the pretty sites and b) Ugly people have lower expectations Ė for a first date a Family Bucket will usually do the trick.
Heh.

i think they address the ones who are conscious about it and want to find a partner. Wondering how the female to male ratio looks like.

Re: Ugly Bug Ball: Dating site for the ugly in UK

I think that you will find that this is an agent of one of the big dating web sites (Dating Direct) that just filters where people have ticked the "ugly /below average in looks".

I thought the www.forgetdinner.co.uk link on the ugly web site was more interesting.
There are a lot of fat people on that web site so wouldn't recomend it for getting dates because they obviously aren't.

It's fake, some of those pictures have been on the web for a long, long time. Nev and Nick in particular.

Re: Ugly Bug Ball: Dating site for the ugly in UK

1. the site is fake, there are at least four "recognizably" culled from the internet pictures posted.

2. I wouldn't be too sure of this:

I know A LOT of fat people who get plenty of dates and plenty of others that can't be bothered and simply want a booty call (which is what the site you linked actually seems to promote).

My point was that the web site name depicts that one would be having sex instead of eating. As the members advertising are fat, they must be eating and not having sex so therefore not having hot dates as the advert implies.

Actually... it implies skipping the date (which often is dinner)... no one said anything about skipping food.

Would say that this was actually a bit shallow statement.

Well, there's quite a bit of demand for fat women, with some guys happily paying for sex with large ladies. There seems to be some stigma attached to being seen in public with a larger female, as I was kindly told by an ex of mine who thought that my then BMI of 24 was FAR too high, he was a rich kid, you gotta have a "representative house, car and woman", dontcha know... But for a bit of non-commital fun, no problem, there are sooo many expressions I remember from the UK relating to this but I won't repeat.

So they may very well be having sex but still eat too much of the wrong thing.

Just the site for me. I might have to spend time there instead of here. They could do with a pompous arse like me.

Bianco Shoes have used at least one of these pictures in a campaign a few years ago.
