UK dating site for "ugly people"

A dating site with a foothold in the U.S. and U.K. claims to have had its first engagement and set the couple up on a honeymoon. The weird part? The site is geared toward "ugly" people.

We've mentioned the Ugly Bug Ball before. UBB calls itself "dating for the asthetically challenged" and its homepage features a prominent picture of a model trying to make himself look goofy and unappealing, yet this is serious business: Tom Clifford found Janine Walker, went on four dates with her... and now they're engaged.

(Clifford told the British press he has a face "that would make children cry." I don't have a clue how to respond except to say "you're all beautiful and don't need dating sites to tell you you're not.")

Surprisingly, people aren't put off by the negative energy the site gives off, which even includes this motto: "Half of UK daters aren’t pretty so instead of fishing in a small pool of prettiness and getting nowhere dive into an ocean of uglies and have more choice."

While this story is encouraging people to believe that you don't have to be a 10 to find true love, for a better rate of success and likelihood of meeting someone as purty as yourself, you should probably try Nerve Personals.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm thinkin' that there's a lot of lovin' to be had once you sign up with UBB.

"Half of UK daters aren’t pretty" -- perfectly true. Except in Lake Wobegon, half of everyone is below average.

the blonde on the top right isnt a model or anything, but i expected all genuinely ugly people. she seems kinda normal and presentable.

i agree. four of the above five women are basically average women.

Kinda scary that you look at 3 women clearly over 200 pounds (based solely on the girth of their necks) and think..."average."

They probably are the definition of average. Kinda scary that such reprehensible people (@Stanley) think that being overweight makes you immediately 'ugly.'
