They later launched the app together in November just to see what might happen, and they say the app already has 10,000 users and counting.
A spokesperson for Woo Plus told The Daily Dot that while they're not the first BBW dating app, their app is more of a "Tinder for BBW" (instead of simply a mobile version of a dating site, which they say most other BBW dating apps are) because it relies on mutual swiping before users can chat.
If you have considered trying BBW dating online, Men Who Like Big Women is the place to be.
If you've been looking for a new, Tinder-style app where you can meet guys who love curvy women, Woo Plus is here for you, girl.
With extensive profiles and pictures and local search, you can find the one who's right for you.
There's so much pressure to look slim - but lets face it some of us are just never going to be skinny and there's nothing wrong with that.
The Daily Dot reports the app started when co-founders Neil Raman and Michelle Li were talking with some friends about a video they'd seen where men were set up with a woman they thought was thinner than she was, in an effort to shame the woman because of her size.
Li says she and her friends found the video odd because they knew men who specifically wanted to date larger women.
