now who's throwing around blatant ignorance???? I believe I brought up THAT one comment as one person I would not give credit to because that was very mean of him to say it that way. There are some people who are very nice about what they say.. geez... so sorry I didn't give you a different quote. YOU do not jump on me for my opinion made about one person's comment. YOU might need to re and understand what I wrote a little more before jumping on me! Geez.. lighten up...

OH marol.. if you were talking about this :


YOU could have been born them, and how would it make you feel if people treated you differently???


I was not referring to YOU as in marol... I was talking about other people who do that... please understand what I write before accusing.

I like men!!!! I have been attracted to some large ones, some athletic and some tight frames.
i probably have a prefrence but then when you, seee what you like the packaging is secondary.


personally for me. I can't afford to buy new clothing, so I will remain the same size forever.
I assume keeping the exact routine daily will support that.

me rolls me eyes at some of the comments..

skinny ppl. assume tht fat ppl are fat, coz they eat too much or dont exercise.. i eat two normal size meals a day and swim 1/1.5km around 3/4 times a week and i walk. and im overweight, being an aussie, dont know pounds.. or clothes sizes.. id rougly say im about 170 pounds maybe? and 5"5 ... indicator anyway for u.

mannnn a fat person knows more about losing weight then anyone else. we know all the diets, we know how much calories is in a peice of bread/carrot/ice cream etc, we tried most exercise programs, we obsess about our bodies, it consumes most of us.

the difference is genetics.. there are just as many skinny ppl out there with bad diets and dont exercise.. why are they skinny?? genetics..

i know this is generalising, as im sure some ppl are purely living a bad lifestyle. and with more adjustment im sure i could lose more to. but how much do i have to exercise. and how little do i have to eat.. to be acceptable?

my opinion on all this is.. is this simply


attraction for me can be initial.. ie.. looks.. but if ur heart isn't of gold and ur intentions pure, i wont look at u twice.. u need to be able to mentally stimulate me and prove ur worth.. as with time.. i see not the reflection of ur physical self.. but ill look in ur eyes and see the one of ur soul. and that is the reflection that i will endure to please... sexually, mentally, and emotionally. and in that time u put on weight or lose it... ull still be the same person in my eyes.

Even though you are overweight someone should not judge you on just that. There is alot more to a person than their outer shell. These people that have to look at a persons outer shell , do not take the time to really find out what someone that is overweight has to offer from the inside of them.

funny.. I use to weigh 260lbs.. lost weight and ironically have had guys date me and later tell me that I wasn't "Big" enough for them..

oh well such is life..

I think you have to love the person for who she/he is inside..

One of the reasons I hesitate to get involved with someone who is into very Large women..although still large I plan on continueing to lose weight at least another 20-30lbs.. i've already lost 90lbs.. I don't want to be with someone that just sees the outside and disregards the inside.

My sister is overweight and has no trouble finding dates. In fact, she dates more now than when she was thin.

Me on the other hand... :D

Personally, I'm not attracted to obese women. Voluptuous women are one thing. I am attracted to women like that. It depends on their size and all.

I know that looks aren't everything, and in the long-run, it's more about personality. But I htink you have to have an initial physical attraction. I want someone I find attractive and who feels the same about me.

Part of it for me is health. My sister and mother have always struggled with their weight. And because they are both obese, I worry about them. When you lose weight, you're healthier. When you feel better, you look better.

I know I'm not perfect either. It's hard. I've been working out for a long time, and I'm not always happy with what I see in the mirror.

" ...but basing a relationship on appearance is just ignorant "

.......then you better get outta the dating scene. I mean take a look at some of the
profiles here. 90% of em' are based on what a person wants physically/appearance-wise.
Not saying it's right, but rather a observation.
