Feabie.com Review Start from $8.99
We weren’t impressed at how difficult it was to find any information on the pricing of the membership unless you are ready to pay.
User Review( vote)
Feabie.com is one of a few social networking sites for feeders who think that bigger is better. Primarily a space for hanging out with other larger singles, it is also somewhere that you can choose to have fun with online dating, should you wish. Coining its name from the Fee in feeder and the Bee in BBW, it is pronounced “Phoebe.” We take a look in more detail in our Feabie review.

What is Feabie?
It is a social networking platform for singles and other people of all ages that are looking to meet and socialize with other feeders and larger people. Here you can write to people with the same interests, and such platforms are the right decision when it comes to dedicated dating. It is also a dating site for BBW and BHM – those that want to meet fellow singles that think bigger is better.
OVERVIEWMembers: 1,000,000 Best for: Those looking to date larger singles or make friends User Base: Heterosexual larger men and women Recommended age: Best for singles under 30
Half of Feabie’s membership is made up of singles under the age of 29 and is weighted (pardon the pun) in favor of women. BBW women are very much in the majority on this dating site with many BBW singles looking for anything from friendship to dating and marriage. The average BMI of a member is 32.5. In fact, half of the users fall into the obese category.
Does Feabie has an App?
The good news for those that like to date on the go is there is a Feabie app. It is free to download and is available both on iOS and Android, which means that pretty much anyone can access the site whatever type of device they have and write to other people anytime.
Feabie Costs and Prices
While it is free to sign up to the dating site and use many of the functions, it will actually cost to upgrade to a premium membership to unlock all of the tools. The value is not that high, by the way. Free membership entitles the users to add their details, upload photos, and many more functions, while Feabie XL allows you to customize your news feed and see who is in your area.
1 month – $8.99
3 months – $22.99
12 months – $69.99
Feabie Special Features
Customizable News Feed
Imagine if you could do this with all of your social media feeds. Use the dating site filter to filter out what you don’t want to see and only get what you do want. This is the right decision, indeed! You can organize your news feed by using age, gender, size, interests, filters, etc., and make a truly bespoke experience.
Advanced Geographic Location
Without giving your address way, you can see who is in your location so that you are able to see who is nearby and who lives in your local area. You can add your address so that people can find you; however, it will not be publicly displayed and remains private.
Messaging and Chat
Messages and chat are integrated in one space, so if you are having a chat, you can see messages coming in and deal with them when you are ready.
Advanced Search Functionality
Know what you want and be specific about what you are looking for with the advanced chat features of Feabie.com and find someone who matches your interests, size, age, and more for dating. Look for those that want the same – maybe that’s casual dating, perhaps it is marriage. Alternatively, search for friends to have some fun online.
Online Safety & Privacy
While the fact that you can find people by geo-location may seem a bit intimidating, the website is like a gated community, so don’t worry about your safety. You cannot find user details from search engines; many sites use this feature nowadays. All user information is kept private and secure, so other members cannot access any personal data about you. Should you wish to leave the site, all of your data will be removed.
Our Experience on Feabie.com
The Sign-Up Process
The registration process starts with entering your name, email address, etc. on the homepage. You have to state what you are looking for and then agree to the terms. At this stage, we got a little confused as it asked us to log in; however, we didn’t have a password. You have to wait for the account activation email before you can progress.
Creating a Profile
When it came to creating a BBW dating profile, we were presented with a grey and quite busy form. It was a very plain and uninspiring form, the kind that you might fill in for a bank account, not for having fun online. It also asks for quite a lot of information – social media profile details, YouTube account, etc. Some may find it a little unnerving given so much away, especially if hoping to remain anonymous.
Searching for a Date
There are quite a lot of boxes to fill out for a detailed search, like on many other dedicated sites. This is a positive thing as it means you can be very specific about what you are looking for; however, we weren’t sure that we knew enough about BMI to determine this as one of our search factors. It can be time-consuming to input all of the fields. Be sure to tell the site what you want, whether that’s a friend or a marriage!
There are a few ways in which to express your interest in a member. You can follow them, in which case they will get a notification, or you can choose to send a message. You can also request access to see their photos. While there seem to be a number of genuine users, there are also a number of fakes.
Feabie Review Conclusion
While it is one of the not difficult sites to navigate and use, there were a couple of glitchy things that we uncovered during our time carrying out our own Feabie review. For a start, the password on sign up could only be input if it had arrived straight away. We weren’t impressed at how difficult it was to find any information on the pricing of the membership unless you are ready to pay. The site is quite uninspiring and lacking in design too. It’s a bit bland, although the Feabie app does make it better to date on the move. We know that it can be difficult to find matches on this kind of site, but still, we didn’t find what we were looking for.
