the only reason i am posting again on this thread (which obviously brings out strong opinions in people), is because when i read i love history's post about liking that woman with big butt and thick thighs, i burst out laughing.

if you haven't figured out, i am one of the smooth face, not thin bodies. do i look obese at first glance? no. i actually have a figure, but the all famous "pear-shaped' i would say. i also want to say do i look like this because i think it's okay or it is my goal in life. of course not. i have food issues instead of drinking, gambling, smoking, drug issues. and i have had not the easiest life. do i still set a goal in my head to be healthier and lose weight, absolutely.
do i know that my pond is much smaller because i own up to a few extra pounds...of course.

BUT, the reason i laughed at the one post is because i have found that there are men who actually like voluptuous woman. i was lucky to meet a few of them. and actually, they tend to be very smart sophisticated men...and i won't make up a correlation or statistic about that, it was just who they were.

my more important point i guess is that hopefully people are attracted to each other for all different reasons...so why even worry about this. i agree that for both issues, the why is the most important thing. is the wrinkled face because of being an outdoorsy person and a lot of sunshine, or from a lot of smoking and drinking. is the big body from eating fast food every day and not giving a darn, or tendency toward overweight and that's the bad habit??

so, i'm glad the art student still likes his curvy art friend, and quite frankly, i would have a hard time passing up on robert redford because of his wrinkles!!!! lol

oh, i forgot. most important thing.

the reason overweight people have smoother skin is because fat cells produce estrogen and estrogen keeps elasticity in the skin. so it's science. just one of nature's trade-offs, i guess.

and if i could be petite with a few wrinkles, yes, i would ask the magic fairy to do that for me.

To hear some guys, only losers like big girls. Its a load of horsesh-t. As you've seen!

My friend has a nice body and is still very pretty despite the wrinkles she has. I think part of it too is she is an EXTREMELY intelligent woman, which is extremely rare where I live, and a super talented artist. Strange as it is, i'd marry her if she wanted me.

Smookymom - I couldn't have posted anything better. Thank you. Anyone can spout statistics about the population of slim, heavy, fat; age of death due to increase in weight; etc. We are who we are. Would some of us change ourselves if there were a "magic fairy"? Probably. Nevertheless, it's a matter of preference. We like what we like. I respect men who say in their profile what "type" of women they are looking for. It saves me time and rejection. It used to bother me and hurt me, but now I find the honesty refreshing. What I do find is that most men (around my age) on this site interested in slim, petite, usually younger women. They seem to be well entrenched in physical fitness and healthy eating. As much as that is a good thing, it almost seems obsessive to me.

Well, I could go on and on about several of the thoughts I mentioned above. Bottom line... As we age and face our final years (and we are all doing that and no one knows how many of those years any of us has left) who do we want sitting next to us on the porch, on the plane, in the hospital bed? It will be the person on the inside of that tone/untone body, wrinkled/unwrinkled face, skinny/over weight bottom, etc.....

I just wish I could find someone who would be willing to see beyond my physical being to all of the goodness I have to give.

Linda136-I agree it would be wonderful if most people just looked on the inside but sadly they don't.A short story I met a man on line (not a dating site)but he had a really old pic up of himself,when I met him it was shocking too me at first as not only was he alot older but alot heavier.Turned into a 2 year relationship that was the most romantic I've ever had(hate too say this but am thinking cause he was foreign). Why is it most men post everything they want in a woman on here,beautiful,slim,athletic,sexy,god forbid you look even near your age have their same ideals,than you look at their profiles and wow do they not need a r eality check! Your second paragraph is so very true!

I find it does help...but sometimes ad attractive figure and a nice personality. Ofcourse that can beother way around asl well....pretty face a little heavy but great personality can work. It's tough some people can pull-off the heavy look while others CAN'T. And then ofcourse you have the people that didnt' look so great when young and they get better-look9ing w/ age! I've known of some cases there! Gee aren't you glad you asked? Now, you're probably more confused than ever! Lol.

Huh? You are turning a positive into a negative? To me this is really simple. I DESPISE myself when I don't feel well, when I feel sluggish and fat . . and I feel that way almost any day that I choose NOT to exercise.

On the other hand, I feel great for the day after a good hour or less (if intensive enough) of cardio-strength training.

Its not a question of "obsession" it’s a question of fighting against father time, and he can be taken on, maybe not indefinitely . . but taking him on "obsessively" makes life a lot more comfortable and a lot more enjoyable

I really do feel bad for people who have to carry around significant excess weight . . I don't see how they can stand living in their skins. I feel really bad for people struck down with auto-immune diseases that rob them of their mobility, cause pain, etc. It takes a true hero to fight that kind of disease and still enjoy a good quality of life.

My SO takes care of herself. Yoga, weight lifting, etc. most days of the week. That's a real plus in our relationship.
Not sure I could be in a relationship with a woman who lets herself go. Lots of women my age have large butts, flabby arms, etc. No Thanks. I can be friends with these women, as many of them are truly wonderful people, but not have a physical relationship with them. The attraction is simply not there, and yea, I do wonder why some people allow themselves to get grotesquely out of shape. Aging alone is no excuse for doing so.

vf,

your post is so insightful as to one of the more glaring dissimilarities between men and women (and before anyone jumps down my shorts, I did not say all men nor all women). Men and women, generally, are wired differently. Generally,, men (males) tend to put a premium on what they find physically desirable. But, if you spend any time reading these postings, you find that what appeals to men is quite diverse. Perhaps it's due to our lack of a monthly cycle that the physical rises in importance.

Now in defense of men, I have also read countless replies on here from women bemoaning the woeful (physical) appearance of the men they've met. So, it seems to me, what's good for the gander also seems to fit the goose.

I agree with you entirely, i like being slim i can wear what i want and feel i look nice and i must say that a man with a good body appeals to me more than a handsome man. I am 50 but i look after my body.

The answer is simple.....people who have wrinkles or lines on their faces simply do not take care of their faces. A well moisturized face and neck will not have wrinkles or lines no matter what the size of the body.

If women just thought of their wrinkle as an extension of their cleavage there would be a lot less angst in this world.

I dont worry about my face other than the basics...wash it, moisturize it and block the sun. What mother nature does with it after that, is out of my hands. Genetics play a bigger role than what I do or dont do....and my wrinkles are mostly from smiling and laughing-all good memories that I wouldnt take back for anything.

As for my body, Im accountable to make sure it keeps me mobile and gets me where I need to go. I stay active for that reason.

I wouldnt ever choose between one or the other- its all about the entire package. I've crushed on men with babyfaces and men with crows feet. Ive crushed on men who were thinner than the average bear and men with meat on thier bones. It just doesnt matter so long as there is a connection, attraction and compatibility.

Zsa=Zsa Gabor said that a woman chooses her face or chooses her body--Turner isn't the first one to make this observation.

For some of us, a small ass is not an option: the size is in our genetic make-up.

If I weighed what the weight charts say I should weigh, my face would be haggard.

The size of an ASS,
( not " azz " ) ,
isn't the only factor in what makes for a nice ASS :

If the SHAPE is good and it's FIRM the size can be a lot bigger than you probably realize.

So, all you women that think you're fucked due to genetics, just go rent some ass exercise vids ( lunges are good ), and get it nice and tight.

You're welcome.
