Hmmm. From my experience and observation, I think most men actually like women that fall some place in the healthy weight spectrum- but that is now that is considered 'skinny' if you're looking at people out on the street because so many people are overweight.

By hollywood/modeling standards, that is fat, or at best 'curvy'. And usually what men mean when they say they like 'curvy', not 300 lbs of curves.

Hollywood/modeling 'skinny' though, is the proverbial bag of bones where the girl is medically underweight and doesn't seem to be desired that much except to be looked at in pictures. Somehow in regular life, girls who are that skinny don't seem to get as much attention, I don't know why. Maybe there's just a big enough difference between look and feel. Or maybe the camera does add an extra 10 pounds.

So yeah, they prefer 'skinny' women, if by skinny you mean 'not medically obese' and some place in the healthy weight zone, which should really not be news at all.

I've had a few women in my life who kept reciting their laundry lists. They probably still are, but not to me.


Meh, I'm in one of those Manti Teo style relationships myself.My guy doesn't actually exist, but if I really want to, I can pretend he does. Less drama this way.

No, it is all about swordsmanship followed by archery skills and then its the ability take castles by leading a charge of warhorses.

This is why you never get laid.

You're forgetting about the rape, rape, pillage and plunder part.

Oops, rape was only supposed to be there once. Though I guess its appropriate for some armies...

You like rape?

ambercat: So yeah, they prefer 'skinny' women, if by skinny you mean 'not medically obese' and some place in the healthy weight zone, which should really not be news at all.


Yep... pretty much. It's all about how healthy they are. Obese or overweight does not in any way strike me as being healthy in the same way that anorexic women don't strike me as being healthy either.

Luckily for my wife and I, we're both well within' the healthy range. I'm about 145-150lbs and she's about 115-120lbs. Our kids are also at healthy weights (not obese, not bags of bones). The key... is healthy.

mjg: Legit question Farkettes:

I've always been a fit guy, but I wonder how it is for a fit woman to be with a big fat barrel chested dude. Just seems gross.

Any comments?
/ I'd assume it's 'love' (aka. money - cue fatguywithhotchickatpool.jpeg)

For me, it was/is love - after 25 years we've both had body changes - i filled out to a permanent 125 lbs, he has slimmed to twice that (down about 45 lbs or so) - he is also a foot taller than i am
Our genes combined one time in almost equal measure - a 6.3, 170 lb male giraffe

"Female superior" is fun - but "missionary" is always a classic, if that was your "real" question

I think that Candye Kane, said it best...

Sessy isn't just body type. Candye is crazy sessy, not because she's a big gal. Not because she used to be a porn star back in the day. Not because she's got such great pipes. She's sessy because she works what she's got, she's confident, she's funny, and she has a great time on stage, or off. She's infectious fun at a gig, and she has charisma and then some. She can work a room and folks get that she's there to have a great time. That is sessy to me.

Attractive isn't in one body type. It's not in hair color. It's not in how big the boobs are, or how curvaceous the butt is, or flat the tummy. Attractive is a whole lot of factors, and what you may find attractive, isn't going to turn on everyone. I know gals who have been a little funny looking when you sat down and looked at pictures, and were crazy, mad sexy when you were in their presence, because they had charisma and style and grace, and exuded a confidence that drew you in. I tend to like gals with bewbs and butts, but there have been skinny minnies who have had it in spades, and got me all worked up. There are big gals who have it as well. And gals who are an average size. It comes down to a lot more than just physical traits--I know gals who are physically very attractive, but there is just nothing to connect to, and it's sort of like looking at a very well crafted statue for all the attraction because they just don't have any spark or personality. Dumb is never sessy to me. Dumb and sort of disinterested in life, that's not a turn on either.

Attraction isn't just stats and figures. It's connection. It's interests. Heck, the girl critter nailed me, because while she IS quite an attractive gal, she smelled like home--there's no other way to describe it, her scent is just right, and maybe that's just unconscious cues that means we can have a lot of babies, or something else entirely, but she nestles into my arms, her scent is just right. That she's bright, and funny, and a little geeky, and can throw a decent punch, and likes to fish, that's even more to fall for.

What some call overweight, some find OK. Heck, some prefer it. What some call skinny, some folks call a slice of alright. The one thing that IS constant in human mating habits is variation. Not everyone likes the same things, and not everyone is for you, but others find just right. Boils down to it, and again Candy Kane said it better than I will. Everybody needs love...

I can tell you this much. If you're gonna go home from the dance with somebody, find somebody you like,. Not just love, not just shaggable, somebody you like hanging out with. Because 40 years from now, you're both gonna wake up next to somebody who looks like one of your grandparents. And if you don't like who they are, you're screwed.

stiletto_the_wise: mjg: Thank you BubbleAndSqueak. The best advice I've gotten on Fark.

Don't fall for it. The difference between men and women is that when it comes to the opposite sex, men will say what they want, and women will say what they think society expects them to want.

Man's story: I want a girl with a tight ass, legs that go on for miles, who doesn't nag much and who loves to fark.
Man's reality: I want a girl with a tight ass, legs that go on for miles, who doesn't nag much and who loves to fark.

Woman's story: I want a chill guy with a sense of humor, average looks, someone who wont lie.
Woman's reality: I want him to look like Brad Pitt, treat me like shiat, so I can "change" him into Prince Charming.

Man's story: I'm into skinny, kind of nerdy chicks who at least won't be embarrassed by my D&D get togethers.
Man's reality: I'm into skinny, kind of nerdy chicks who at least won't be embarrassed by my D&D get togethers.

Woman's story: I like artistic guys who understand me, enjoy giving each other our space, and have a normal, steady job.
Woman's reality: I require continuous access to a well-funded bank account.

On the first one -- if that is her natural body weight, is it really right to say that she's gross or wrong? I find this whole "real women have curves" thing to be as self-defeating as the hate for larger women. Either way, it emphasizes this idea that a woman's worth is in her body and whether other people find her attractive. Why can't we just accept women's bodies, large or small?

Pretty much, yes, in some cases.

Here's the secret to women. Be nice, don't lie, make us laugh. And, if we're recently divorced/ just broke up with someone who was physically in great shape, don't be the immediate next guy if you resemble Mr. PotatoHead. Give us some space, because we're just as shallow as you. We just get over it faster and will see and love you for your personality.

Just don't be the rebound guy. Not all of us are hung up on your money, because we make our own. Just... And I cannot stress this enough... Don't be the rebound guy.

You're welcome.
