Saturday, June 21, 2008, PM I'm turned off by fat men (more than 40 lbs overweight) for the same reason "shuts the attraction off" - obesity is a sign that something's wrong in his life and he's not dealing with it. Saturday, June 21, 2008, PM I LOVE a well rounded chubby man!
Large dudes will frequently lament that their size automatically disqualifies them from dating – they believe that there is simply no way a woman could possibly like somebody who’s body isn’t rippled and shiny like a buttered ear of corn. Kevin Smith, for all of his fashion sins that I will get into in a second, is happily married with a lovely wife and daughter. It’s easy to forget this when the TV and magazines are showing you nothing but image after image of cut, veiny men with swimmers builds with women draped all over them like fur stoles, but women actually like a far wider range of body types than we’d think.
Ask five women what their ideal male build is and you’ll get six different answers.
That said, it's hard to be objective when someone is explaining why you don't give them an erection.
With that in mind, I asked a group of anonymous men who refuse to date fat women to try and explain their feelings to me.
There's a pretty popular thread going on about whether men are attracted to fat women. I definitely am attracted to a bigger man - but it has to be a certain kind of fat (and they have to be tall, too). I've come too far to enter in a relationship where the guy obviously is eating too much/drinking too much/ not exercising enough.
I put it to you this way: Are Women Attracted to Fat Men? Saturday, June 21, 2008, PM Only very recently have I started viewing fit & toned men as more attractive than fat men.And yet even when the number of people who are considered overweight form the majority of the population, obesity is in many ways one of the remaining acceptable prejudices.Last week, the #fatshamingweek hastag was trending on Twitter as numerous assholes and shitbags took to the network and decided to mock fat people – mostly women, but men too – from behind the dubious anonymity of their Twitter accounts.If you are a plus size or fat person, you know how difficult it is to date.Tinder is notorious for its users fat shaming, and this video shows how people react to their real-life dates being bigger than what they expected. It was that video that inspired Woo Plus, an app exclusively for the plus size dating community.Societal standards of beauty are not only arbitrary but often literally impossible to achieve without Photoshop and make-up and there are assholes out there who feel empowered to mock fat people with impunity.
