If height can be a filter, then weight should be one too.
Thanks for your suggestion Pedro. Unfortunately, we have no plans to add a weight filter at this time. It doesn't align with our vision for the mutual app.
🙋🏽♀️ Nice , is good idea
Having a healthy spouse is key to having a happy healthy family. As someone who sacrifices to stay in shape I don't want to keep agreeing to meet people here who have an extra 75lbs they've managed to hide with clever angles. It just wastes everyone's time. Weight for a lot of people is a more important criteria than height anyway, and it's not like height reflects lifestyle choices....
Why is there a height filter for genetic differences, but not a weight filter that can be changed and maintained. Pretty stupid
Ok the whole point the the app is to find someone you want to date! So why are you against adding this filter that may help people to do that. On a personal note I have people on both sides of my family who are overweight, I’m not, but I don’t wanna perpetuate the cycleThat’s why adding that filter would be very helpful to me
"Weight filter" (suggested by Joseph on 2021-04-04), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
I think you could make this less abiut weight and instead make it active lifestyle all other dating apps tend to have some sort of fitness level or activity level filter
Yes unfortunately is a biggy when deciding who to date since I'm guy at 5'5". But so too is weight. I know some of these sisters believe if they are just prayerful and obedient weight will not be important, and therefore only headshots will be displayed. I never read profiles that don't show their full figure. I have gone on dates where the gal was much bigger than me and it was frustrating And awkward. I don't mean to offend and I love all god-fearing sisters. lso, I have dated gals bigger than me and I liked them but it made them uncomfortable.
I want to match with people I relate with. This helps, in both directions.
I agree with this and think it’s smart . It’s not about being mean it’s about the church’s belief on being healthy . I mean technically the person can Can lie about that anyways it’s not hurting anyone by putting weight on there !
Since weight is not planned, would you consider activity level? Daily gym, weekly, occasional hike etc. I feel like weight and height can be sensitive subjects but activity level would be a good comparability gauge. Hope this helps.
I’m glad they’re not planning to add this one. Some people carry weight differently than others. For instance, I’m super tall, very athletic and active, and have thick bones and a lot of muscle. My job is very physical, and I am in good shape. Most people gasp or don’t believe me when I tell them my weight. I look like I should be 30 lbs lighter. If it were part of the filters on Mutual, I’m left with either stating my actual weight (which could have some men eliminate me as an option prematurely), or enter what I LOOK like I should weigh (which would be a lie). Glad it’s not happenin’!
This idea is horrible. Some people have health problems. Where they have a hard time gaining or loosing weight. They are doing what they can to correct it. That's what dating is for so see if your attracted to the person and if you like their personality and if not you discontinue the dating.
Weight is a bad idea, but I think body type would be a good filter. Many other dating apps have something like this, with options such as:SlimAthleticAbout AverageA Few Extra PoundsCurvyOverweightSomething like that could be helpful for those that care.
I think activity level is a good compromise here. If you're someone who is active and works out consistently, then you have the option to match with those people. I personally find it hilarious that all the comments about wanting to add a weight filter come from the guys. There are so many guys on this app who don't take care of themselves and admit to being chubby themselves, yet think they can police women on how they look and can insist on only dating Victoria's Secret models. The sense of entitlement displayed by the men here is rich. Pot meet kettle, anyone?
I agree with Several comments, weight is a bad idea, but body shape/type is a big factor for me. I run daily and am tired of people trying to set me up with someone who can’t walk a mile without needing to stop 6 times. I want to lead a healthy active lifestyle with my future family and want someone capable of doing so
So glad this is not getting added. Fat phobia is a real issue no matter the gender, but even worse for women. Everyone who argues about “health” hasn’t done any research into fatness at all.
THANK YOU for not putting this one on there — weight is a terrible measure of fitness and that’s literally why there are pictures on the profile. If being with someone athletic is super important to you, just ask the person/put it on your profile. There is so much more to a person than weight.
