What is on your checklist for finding a date online?

If your possible mate's body type is of concern, one dating website is now offering an option for daters to filter possible suitors by various shape and body sizes. is offering the service with an extra $5 to $10 fee. You can then weed out physical body types, an option not available with the free dating service.

Critics said it makes the whole process more stressful, and again places an emphasis on looks rather than personality.

But the site's co-founder said that it is just more of a real life scenario, because out in public, you would make judgments taking all of those physical factors into consideration.

You do not have to fill out those questions on your own profile, though. You can leave anything you are not comfortable answering blank.
