dkny: ...she based her happiness off her size? You got all that from a comment that was maybe two lines long?

Wow. You've gotta be some kind of genius there.


Well, statistically speaking, yeah...But you don't really have to be to get that out of what she said.

"I was a 14 and not happy now i r a 4 and i;m ectsatick LOL"

In essence, you're saying, "How dare you interpret what she said to mean exactly what she said?"

Put your lance away, O noble Sir Gallant Lad. Nobody wants to see it.

lordargent: shooboxx77: If a guy is sitting around playing Gears 2-10hrs a day and eating a bag of cheetos

I played gears for about 8 hours yesterday, so I'm really getting a kick.

/no cheetos, unless they're the hot ones, but not while I'm playing (I don't need a red controller)

I'm not exactly fat though.

MaxxLarge: krysbabe: I was a size 14 once.. I was very very unhappy!

Now I'm a size 4/6 and I'm estatic! :)

Sorry you tie your personal worth and well-being to a goddamned dress size. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess you're probably shallower than a frisbee, and place so much emphasis on your packaging because there's nothing of worth inside the wrapper.

Good for you, I guess.


This from a guy who goes by the moniker "MaxxLarge".

Anyway, I mostly agree with you but what if Bethany there is, like, 4'6"? She could have been feeling really out of shape and lousy. Personally, I'm pretty tall and a size 14, while lookin a little heavy definitely doesn't look fat. My normal size is size 12. I'm very muscular for a woman.

Flaming Hot Cheetos rock. Yes, I am a woman who will fight you for a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos. ;)

Here is the thing - just playing video games and having bad eating habits does not always = fat. It usually leads to that at some point - but some people have good metabolisms and all that. It does indicate poor health choices though - and a different set of priorities than those who spend 2+ hours a day doing other activities - like sports, exercise, what have you. Given that people usually get along with others who hold similar values to themselves, while it is not entirely out of the question that a video game guy would be with a health nut woman, it is unlikely. He will probably end up with a woman who likes video games too or something like that and maybe isn't as conscientious about her weight as the person who puts "diet and exercise" (or fitting into a size 4 dress - however that works out) as the #1 on their priority list. So, you might end up with a girl who is a biatchunky. Or not. Who knows.
Plus you look super young, these are things you really don't have to worry about till you are 30+.

GoddessofSnowandIce: Here for:

*Size 14 = OMGz teh fattie!!!1one1!
*All skinny girls are shallow and unhealthy!
*You can weigh 300 lbs and still be healthy!
*Self-Dx- It's my thyroid/genes!

Did I miss anything?

How about these instead?

*Diet and exercise FTW! (Worked for me- Over 100 lbs down).
*A few extra lbs= perfectly healthy, despite what all these 26-minutes-to-get-to-the-gym douchebags say.
*One hundred extra lbs= unhealthy, no matter what your confidence level. It does not mean, however, that one's character should be judged solely on that factor.
*Genes play a part in how and where your body stores fat, and some of us will never be petite no matter how hard we try short of starvation and running a marathon every morning, but there's no medical excuse for morbid obesity, no matter what your situation.
*Some women are naturally slender and do eat those sandwiches. Just because she is that way doesn't mean she's throwing them up afterwards. You can tell a healthy woman from the glow in her skin and muscle tone (works out). If a woman looks sick, then you can offer up those sandwiches.


You are so going on my faves list right now...

Ah...the baseless ad hominem. The last resort of the unarmed wits-battler who has no further point to make, yet who still can't seem to stop flapping his oversized gums regardless.

It hurts a bit, but I'll try to mentally crouch all the way down to your grade-school-playground level. At this point, isn't the stock response, "No, YOU'RE a coont!" or some pedantic nonsense? It really has been several years since I've had to regress so far in my discourse, so please excuse me if I'm not being childish enough. You'd know, after all.

shooboxx77: ere is an army of hot pocket aficionados.

Good point. It also reminds me that its a tad annoying to see a lot of guys talking about "fatties" and how in shape a woman "should" be. Now if a guy spends a good amount of time & energy on thier own appearance (diet, exercise and the like), they will find a partner who is similar to themselves and appriciates such things in thier partner and themselves. If a guy is sitting around playing Gears 2-10hrs a day and eating a bag of cheetos , he most likely isn't going to find the woman of his dreams who is in "in shape" - he is going to find a girl who will probably fight him for the bag of cheetos. Or he will be a lonely man. Such is life.


See, that is the part that pisses me off about these threads. If a guy comes in here acting like a complete dick about women who aren't perfect in appearance, I think it should be required for them to post full body pictures and a picture of their face along with their comments. I can almost guarantee they are not in perfect shape, don't look that good, and probably have pretty crappy lives in order to be that vicious and catty. Yes, bigger women might not be healthy -- doesn't give people a license to be judgmental pricks about it, especially when the complaints could be purely hypocritical in nature. I can't help but wonder if they ever manage to get dates, or if they just sit around complaining about sharp knees or cankles and stay virgins eternally.

I get a strong feeling that the overly-judgmental guys in here have their turn at getting their feelings hurt in small penis threads, though.

Oh, and for real world weight gain, its more something like this:
curvature.files.wordpress.com

That is a size 20, according to the fashion blog I hotlinked. Thats a size 20 in American, not English or Australian, but American. Thats not too far off from the 14-16 perfect size range many are raging about. Even for a fashion runway, that is how the more typical weight gain would appear. Not some endomorph that works out 20 hours a week to model and make the perfect BBW lovers wet dream.


For a size 14? Probably something like this:

So don't kid yourself about these BBW pictures that keep getting posted. These two pictures are probably more representative to yourself and the girls you have been dating. And there is nothing remotely attractive about it. In fact, I would say such an attraction is a disturbing fetish on the ranks of liking trannies or scat.

that is all

I think some of them stay virgins eternally because there is this conditioning men get that they should only accept "physically perfect" women. These are guys whose only contact with women is what they see on porn sites and playboy mags and then when they meet a girl who doesn't live up to that standard, they get the "fattie" label. I have actually met a few guys who will probably never get laid because they 1. don't go outside thier homes 2. expect a damn model to fall out of the sky into thier laps and anything less is not acceptable.

p the boiler: srewolf: Seconded. I also like to feel the ride (man and Jeep). I'm currently on my 4th Jeep. I've had 2 old Wranglers and 2 Grand Cherokees. If I had a 2nd parking space, I'd buy the 4 door Wrangler in a heartbeat!

But much as I love Jeeps (and my Wranglers were beasts), men are definitely more fun :)

so... how you doin'?


Sorry to disappoint but from what I've read, at 5'4" and 110 lbs (genetically, because I'm lazy and don't really work out), it appears that I don't meet your desired weight class (NTTAWWT).

But I will say that my left foot is a half size larger than my right due to the wickedly stiff clutch of my '88 Wrangler...the unforeseen consequence of driving that sucker in stop-n-go traffic for an hour each way for 5 years. Does that earn me any points?

But then again, I'm not in perfect shape, and try not to say anything bad about "larger" women. I'm quoting on that because it really depends on what you define as larger.

What should i do? Post pictures of my last 3 lays to prove you wrong?!? Or let you go along in your self-constructed worldview so that you can pretend there is nothing with you.

Could it be that regular guys you interact with daily at work and with friends have such a loathing detesting feeling towards overweight women? Or a just couple ITG's at home in their parents basement?

Don't think pictures would do anything more than invite 26 minute jokes. I'm surprised the guy with camera got off so lightly.

Heh. Yeah, I had roommates who were size 4, my height, and would cry hysterically about how they just can't get their belly fat to go away (and yes, there was no belly fat that actually existed on them, it was all imaginary). I don't think porn is a bad thing at all, but I think it is definitely not a good idea to have mostly women with BMIs of 17 or 18 to represent sex and what it is to be a sexually attractive woman. Yes, a healthy weight is good, but this typically means a BMI ranging from 18.5 to 25. I'm unsure why a point below is considered super sexy, whereas a point above is ridiculed and labeled unworthy and ugly, when both are typically unhealthy. There's a wide range of good and healthy figures, but so many men seem to want the extreme skinny end of things and rule out women who are, say, of BMIs between 21 and 25. It's irritating, but that's society for you. Perfection does not exist, so people need to realize there's a range of beauty, not just one kind.

The main variable that they're going for there is youthfulness. It's sick, but thin = young, and so thin women are seen as more youthful (generally). Attractiveness ideals place a high premium on youth, as it usually connotes fertility and a longer period of reproductive viability. That's why most (but not all) of our sex symbols and porn stars are so thin.

To me, attractive women are ones that know how to bake cookies and make music. A rare combination, unfortunately. And I don't think it's a tall order (pun intended) to ask for a woman who's smaller than I am (6', 250). At any rate, I think the obsession with skinny women in pornography is disturbingly predictable based on the science of attraction, but fortunately there's a wide variety of pornography out there, and not all of it features skinny-minnies.

when you comment about being overweight, are you talking about guys who aren't overweight that don't date overweight women? Why should they?

Women who are 6 inches shorter than me still say I'm not tall enough, but then I'm supposed to date a woman who weighs 50 pounds more than me? give me a break already

I can't tell you how many fat, OLD LOOKING women have tried telling me that I sound like the kind of guy they'd like... they look 25 years older than me and out weigh me by an entire back street boy.

littlett's: wallytacker: Hhaha fat people are inferior, just like bald men.

A little pudge is nice on a guy. I need something to snuggle up to so I can stay warm.


Anyway, you can't drive a railroad spike with a tack hammer.

CleverGuy81: The main variable that they're going for there is youthfulness. It's sick, but thin = young, and so thin women are seen as more youthful (generally). Attractiveness ideals place a high premium on youth, as it usually connotes fertility and a longer period of reproductive viability. That's why most (but not all) of our sex symbols and porn stars are so thin.

To me, attractive women are ones that know how to bake cookies and make music. A rare combination, unfortunately. And I don't think it's a tall order (pun intended) to ask for a woman who's smaller than I am (6', 250). At any rate, I think the obsession with skinny women in pornography is disturbingly predictable based on the science of attraction, but fortunately there's a wide variety of pornography out there, and not all of it features skinny-minnies.


See, this is the part that is confusing to me. The most fertile women do not have super-slender figures, because that would make childbearing difficult. It's women who tend to fit the golden ratio that are perceived as being most fertile, with wide hips and narrow waists. Yet, this is not a figure I see often in porn, even though it'd logically follow that it should be prevalent, from a biological stance. I guess the prevalence of super-thin women in mainstream porn is because sexual selection is much more complicated than biology, and includes things that indicate status and wealth, not just fertility. I think it's a shift toward the wealthy being thin and tan and fit, and the poor becoming heavier and out of shape that is to blame.

But, yeah, cookies and music are two things I can do! Hopefully it is not that rare. Best of luck finding your woman who can fulfill your criteria.

lordargent: But the knife cuts both ways. This reminds me of a best of craigslist post that I saw 2 years back that some guy wrote.

Nice. I agree entirely, women can be extremely superficial about things like height in males. At least weight can be changed. The things women judge men with typically cannot be changed, which leaves the men who don't fit the criteria in a very crappy situation.

Owangotang: The only question left is which extremely self-confident TFette is going to buy the headline t-shirt and put a pic of her wearing the shirt in her profile.

HAH! I would, but I'm in college and poor. Oh well.

Also, my inner scientist has major problems with that headline. Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, goddammit!

There are other laws of attraction though.

Come on, anyone can join the military :D

Anyway, here's another project that I have bookmarked that I found interesting enough* to bookmark at some point.

The picky woman's date calculator

/basically, the guy that made it took census data and then made a front end with a bunch of checkable options.

Then, based on the options checked, it gives the number of men that fit all of the checked criteria.

(basically, determining the size of a woman's dating pool based on her criteria)

/only applicable to California

/*I'm a programmer by trade, so algorithms and data analysis interest me.

Better tell him that! LOL! J/K. Hubby more than shows his appreciation.

Galileo's Daughter:

You are so going on my faves list right now...

Ooh, that is very interesting. I assume they've just applied a statistical curve to obtain numbers of traits like attractiveness and intellect that are not collected in the census?

/Hah, according to that calculator, my boyfriend does not exist (in california, anyway).
