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.

The problem with skinny ladies ... you hit bone while boning ... chubbby chicks .. they say you are just a chubby chaser ...

I believe that there is a perfect type of women for every heterosexual male out there .... you just need to put in the time an effort to find them ...

Most men do not have the time and resources to do this ... in my experience ... you love life and become self absorbed ... but you love life ... and you really love and enjoy women ... and they can feel this.

As a gentleman of stout stature I am of the opinion that all fat people, myself included, should be ridiculed. Loudly. Being fat is a dangerous thing, and it will kill you.

The number one cause of death in the US is heart disease. Fast food drives that. (So at a stretch, which stretching is something fat people are unfamiliar with, you could say that McDonald's kills more people every year than anything else.)

My wife and I recently listed to a TED talk on relationships. The lady suggested that women who were married to men who were fatter than they were, were significantly happier and the relationship was healthier overall.

Why? Because the woman doesn't have to constantly compare herself to her mate,

I'm putting on some pudge lately... because I love my wife. Seriously though, I'm getting a biatchunky around the midsection (my definition may be different from other peoples - when I graduated high school I was 5'9" 130, at 30 I'm 5'9 170) so I'm trying to motivate myself to lose some weight. I keep saying that if I ever look down and no longer see my little buddy, I need to work out. It's going to happen soon.

/Stupid wife that cooks really good food...

bunner: 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.


Haven't met someone I liked that was available in quite a long time. The thing about likable people is they are a rare commodity and what is left is a dating wasteland that you actually become a part of once you become as disillusioned as I have.

fragMasterFlash: Kome: fragMasterFlash: Ladies, as long as you can still get your ankles behind your ears you are not too fat. So put the ice cream aside for a few minutes of yoga.

This is, I think, a better type of exercise.

PrincetonTotalFark could use a guy like JoelKome


Damn dude. Thanks!

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?


Can we accept men, short or tall, bald or hairy, rich or poor, nerdy or jock, shy or outgoing?

Yet for some strange reason, fat MEN always get women. I don't get it.

Skinny guys, myself included, never have a girl. Ever. None of us. Every fat guy? HAS A FREAKING GIRL.

*grumbles*

I think what TFA is saying is healthy (not model, not obese) weights are preferred. Makes sense.

As a girl, I have to say I would that personality/compatibility of lives is more important than looks. The pretty guys are nice to look at, though. A thing of beauty is a joy forever and all that. I do have a thing for dark hair and British accents.

Overweight women have skinny women beat by a mile when it comes to moving the earth. Right down into the earth's mantle that is.

Drug dealer. Anytime that you see a fat/scraggily/greasy guy with a hot girl it is because he will freely supply her with coke, weed, or whatever. Sometimes for free or at a deep discount for services rendered.

Or it's her brother.

Try being 20 lb too heavy. It's like you're invisible and smell bad.

I wonder the same thing about fat chicks. Apparently nobody's attracted to fat people but they're always attached. Perhaps they lower their standards or they don't like being alone so they stay with whoever will be with them?

Everyone has a different relationship strategy. I'd rather be alone than settle.

FWIW, I like skinny guys. I actually have a date with one this week! ;)

stiletto_the_wise: Your Average Witty Fark User: Me? I like a woman with curves. I'm not a fan of bags o' bones.

teto85: Real women have curves.

Zeppelininthesky: This! Skinny is okay, but I do like curves.

You guys can have your "curves". It's all antlers for me thankyouverymuch

Because when you are fat you have to learn to have game or else you will have the sex life of a monk.

If you are skinny you will occasionally get some even if you haven't got a clue what you are doing around a woman.

marsgwar: Marshal805: Oh look! Another thread where a bunch of junk food eating, basement dwelling, neck-beards with the personal hygiene traits of a cockroach try to tell women what's expected of them in the looks department.

You don't have to white knight fat chicks. They'll have sex with you, if you just give them a little bit of attention a ham.

FTFY

FunkOut:

"I said I wanted a man with freckles who was a weirdo. I should have been pickier. But you know, freckles."

Haha!

I like chubby/stocky guys. Bonin skinny guys is not as much fun. But to each his own.

I thought it was weird that the article said that men prefer model types with a healthy weight, but most models are not a normal weight. Tall and clothes fall well on them maybe, but not normal proportions. And by normal I don't mean obese, even if that's become normal over on this continent.

/partied with some models once. They were kinda boring because they couldn't drink. Too many calories and all.

Couldn't they just stick their fingers down their throat afterward?

FunkOut: pion: FunkOut: dollbreaks: I don't know why so many people make a distinction between the words 'curvy' and 'thin'. Curvy can include a wide range of BMIs--just so long as the WHR is 0.7 or less, which actually tends to be more common in thin ladies than fat ones.

Yes. 35-25-35 is possible at 115 pounds. Have to be small boned but it is possible.

Only if she's 5'3"

\Remember, Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda.

Actually, 5'6".


I'm 5' 8" and at these measurements I'd rarely eat. Crazy. I'm 140, 36-27-38.

/exercise 4-5 days a week
//eat pizza when I want

Like fit guys myself.
