It's called comfort...

Hot chicks are stressful, they are hot, they know they are hot, and use that as leverage every chance they get...

Most of the time we guys are up for it... but those of us that are under a lot of stress don't need to put up with their shiat...

Like that old internet meme that's a pic of some sports illustrated super model that captions "Behind every supermodel is a guy that's tired of her shiat"

Fatties tend to be eternally grateful to have a mildly successful, moderately handsome man that will stick their average sized penis in them. They gobble it up like leftovers and bon-bons...

which tends to relieve a lot of stress on men...

So next time you go ripping on those Dove "Love your body" models, think about how stressed you are and rather or not your trophy wife/gf is REALLY helping...

DreamSnipers: FTA: "If you look at environments where food is scarce, people's preferences for body size in a potential partner are shifted. [The preference] appears to be much heavier compared to environments where there's plenty of food and a much more relaxed atmosphere," he explained.

To me that shows a completely illogical response. If there is not much food available, I want an anorexic for a partner.


It sounds illogical, but it isn't. The reason women gain weight more easily is so that they don't die or have unhealthy pregnancies. Therefore, a woman who easily gains weight is attractive during times of stress, because the body thinks there is no food, and that skinny chick won't carry on any damn genes at all. The fat chick can sustain a pregnancy.

Two outta three, maybe. These days, odds are they are that size because they eat poorly - all-day snacking at the desk with a fast food lunch break and another drive-thru on the way home. They'd probably burn water if you made them cook without a microwave or telephone.

I disagree. I have a wife who is on the heavier side. She glares at me if I suggest fast food. So loves to cook and is very good at it. Almost every meal is home cooked. My brother's wife is also on the heavier side and was a professional cook for years before hatching a couple kids. In those two examples, eating junk food has nothing to do with the weight.

Before my wife, I had a very hot girlfriend who made all her decisions without consideration for others because, to her, she was the only person on the planet that mattered. She was incapable of cooking anything beyond Kraft Dinner. In the time I knew her she got by on the cooking of her large roommate.

All my experience tells me you're completely out-to-lunch on your assessment.


I think both types exist, fat people who eat fast food and fat people who don't. The whole notion that all fat people sit around gorging themselves on fast food and junk food all day long is utterly ridiculous though. I know more thin/normal size people who eat fast food and junk food consistently than fat people. This is not to imply that no fat people do because that's a little silly, but they're usually not the ones making trips through the drive-through every day or leaving candy wrappers all over the place. But all this means is that people are different and making generalizations and stereo-types that people believe without question is stupid, but I know we all do it in some way as it's easier for humans to identify/understand things when we group people/things and think of them all as the same.

Anyway, I don't know why everyone is always obsessed with what other people find attractive. I don't know why some people get so bent out of shape if they see another human being attracted to someone who they don't find attractive. It's as if that person's choices are somehow making them question their own (which isn't really the case but getting upset about it makes it seem that way). I just don't know why you would care. I think we all have our deal breakers and that's fine and legitimate, but why do we care what other people like/choose? I don't understand people being attracted to extremely morbidly obese people, but I don't care that they are. I say good for the extremely morbidly obese people who have people who want them.

To me it's like being stuck in a high school mentality. I remember my friends giving me crap for some of the people I liked/dated. I would get the, but you can do so much better line a lot. However, when I tried to date the ones others thought were good looking, it was boring or annoying. Who wants to spend time talking to someone who is a complete moron? I've tried that relationship and it was utterly boring.

/Anyway, I'm off topic and no one is likely reading this anyway.

spentmiles: I was jogging this morning through downtown when I saw a reasonably fit guy holding hands with this overweight woman. She wasn't a land whale or anything, but certainly by medical standards, obese. The light turned and I couldn't cross, so I was stuck at the intersection with these two. He mostly pawed the ground shyly as I jogged in place. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore.

"Why are you with this woman?" I asked him.
After he got over the shock of someone like me talking to him, he stammered, "B-b-because I love her."
"Yeah right," I said.
The light turned and I jogged away.

I think a lot of men think they're with an overweight partner because they "love" them. How can you love someone who obviously doesn't have any love for themselves? Do you really think the person with twenty or thirty extra pounds piled on top of their heart can really feel emotion? It's a disgusting joke. These men stay with these women because they have absolutely zero self esteem and nullable self-confidence. They're afraid to get back into the dating pool because it took all they had just to land the tub of shiat they've got. If these men would take a few steps - hit the gym three times a week, go to some male themed confidence workshops, learn to talk at women - they could go out and find a woman who is ten times more attractive than the fleshy beast they're currently shackled up with. It's sad to me that people can't help themselves.

Duh - as stress rises, it brings with it a waft of fatality, and biological responses scream back "IT'S TIME TO BREED!!111" It causes them to go less after society's silly idea of attractive (sharp knees, no hips, not good breeding stock) women, and more for the one with big hips and extra padding, a clear evolutionary sign of health, prosperity, and good breeding prospects.

IamAwake: disagree. I see someone not taking care of themselves, I have a hard time becoming day-to-day involved with them. One of two things would happen - either they'd not put any effort in at all, which would indicate some sort of disassociative disorder, or they are concerned about their health but I then get to watch them day-to-day engage in the lifestyle choices that are making them unhealthy? Can't respect either type person. At least, not if I see their actions day in and day out. Were someone unhealthy but making actual attempts at improvement however...that would be different.

The idea that someone can't be well-adjusted, healthy, and fun to be around simply because they're attractive and in shape is rather...unfortunate. I'd suggest the perception exists mostly due to males who can't keep themselves from being pervs around said women, who then cause said women to be less friendly than they would otherwise be, or otherwise are with people not looking at them as sex objects.


The intellectual hoops we jump through to justify our shallowness... You think fat people are icky. It's ok, dude. You are in a deep pool of shallow company.

A middle eastern friend of mine explained it this way, if they're thicker they have a more reliable food source. Also, usually more wealth and health.

It's only in the western world where the reverse occurs and obesity is more of a problem among the poor.

There were a lot of skinny haters that posted comments to that BBC story. Is it my wife's fault if size 0 or 00 isn't always accommodating? Do you know how hard it is to find clothes for her? :(
We went to one store that I really like, Syms, and we couldn't find women's clothing smaller than size 4. Seriously? But that is the story of most places. And forget big box stores like Wal-Mart. (1) Why would you want to buy clothes there anyway (well, as a guy, I don't give a crap)? and (2) 99.9999% of their customer base couldn't fit in a size 10 if their life depended on it. :-p
There are four malls within 20 minutes' drive, one "upscale". Very little success. We even checked the "petite" section at Sears. Why does a world seemingly obsessed with skinny and with so many skinny women as models and on magazines etc NOT HAVE ANYTHING to cater to them?

They're couching the results as stressed men like fatter women when in fact the results indicate men who are stressed (and therefore in need of stress relief) are open to a greater range of options than men who are comfortable, less in need of stress relief, and more willing to wait for more preferable opportunities.

royone: The article says they consider a wider range attractive. While that adds chubbies to the group of types found attractive, it doesn't indicate that their ideal changed, or that they found svelte figures less attractive.

The results indicated that the change in "environmental conditions" led to a shift of weight preference towards heavier women with the men considering a wider range of body sizes attractive.

The midpoint of the attractive weight changed, but that isn't the same as saying they favor heavy over less heavy.


The article DOES say that the shift was towards the heavier end of the spectrum. And if you look at the paper in question, there is stated a preference for the heavies.

I don't resemble that comment at all. I am curvy, happy, confident. And I am not the only one. Self loathing has little to do with actual appearance and everything to do with chemical make-up or poor life experience. My brother's wife teaches yoga, large natural breasts, tall, long dark hair, slim, and she hates herself. She makes comments like "Oh, you are so gorgeous" and I am shorter, curvier, etc. It's totally bizarre.

CeroX: Fatties tend to be eternally grateful to have a mildly successful, moderately handsome man that will stick their average sized penis in them. They gobble it up like leftovers and bon-bons...

You know, the grateful type.


/personally I've had better luck with the daddy-issues types coming off their bad boy phase

Sounds like English scientists needed an excuse for getting with "English pretty" girls.

FTA: "If you look at environments where food is scarce, people's preferences for body size in a potential partner are shifted. [The preference] appears to be much heavier compared to environments where there's plenty of food and a much more relaxed atmosphere," he explained.

To me that shows a completely illogical response. If there is not much food available, I want an anorexic for a partner.

spentmiles: I was jogging this morning through downtown when I saw a reasonably fit guy holding hands with this overweight woman. She wasn't a land whale or anything, but certainly by medical standards, obese. The light turned and I couldn't cross, so I was stuck at the intersection with these two. He mostly pawed the ground shyly as I jogged in place. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore.

"Why are you with this woman?" I asked him.
After he got over the shock of someone like me talking to him, he stammered, "B-b-because I love her."
"Yeah right," I said.
The light turned and I jogged away.

I think a lot of men think they're with an overweight partner because they "love" them. How can you love someone who obviously doesn't have any love for themselves? Do you really think the person with twenty or thirty extra pounds piled on top of their heart can really feel emotion? It's a disgusting joke. These men stay with these women because they have absolutely zero self esteem and nullable self-confidence. They're afraid to get back into the dating pool because it took all they had just to land the tub of shiat they've got. If these men would take a few steps - hit the gym three times a week, go to some male themed confidence workshops, learn to talk at women - they could go out and find a woman who is ten times more attractive than the fleshy beast they're currently shackled up with. It's sad to me that people can't help themselves.


Don't you have to be at the Gym in 26 minutes?

DesertZephyr: Curves=comfort

She holds soft
She cooks good
She sleeps warm

Comfort offsets stress

//no-brainer


Two outta three, maybe. These days, odds are they are that size because they eat poorly - all-day snacking at the desk with a fast food lunch break and another drive-thru on the way home. They'd probably burn water if you made them cook without a microwave or telephone.

I'm stressed out constantly.

I like my girls comfortably sized and with mouths they know how to operate.
