Why Not. If you dont like too skinny or too fat they wont hook you up with them.

It may work for some but I think that you could be missing out on "the one."  If I had done something like that I would have never met my DH.  He was not the type of person I was normally attracted to but once I got to know him things changed.  We have been married for ten years now.

I'm not single but I'd i was I'm sure most men wouldn't be after my body type! I'd rather they were filtered and only men that found me attractive showed up.

Body types would be one of the very first criteria, if I were looking. Looks are very important to me and I'm only attracted to the taller, thinner type of man who looks fabulous in the expensive suits he'll be wearing. I want a man with high self esteem who looks as great as he can and takes care of himself. Sloppy, uncaring or fat guys can take a hike. Literally. It might get them started on getting into shape.

Yes, people who only date obese people would be shallow if they are "chubby chasers". They would be just as shallow as I am for being only attracted to the tall, slim, good-looking guys.  Whatever floats your boat.

if a person has a certain type they are attracted to and it is very important to him/her then why not.  its a win/win becuse people who care less about body types wont be paired with someone who does.

I think my husband is very handsome, and extremely well built. I comment often. He tells me I'm so superficial. I just tell him if I have to sit across the table from you every day, I have to like what im looking for.
Neither of us likes a fat body.

I think it's absolutely horrible. You miss out on great people judging by superficial things. They should filter by douche bag level. But if you're a superficial arsehole, it's right up your alley.
