Attracted to same body type as your own????Page 3 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
The only thing that has the same build as me is the buddah statue in front of my favorite chinese place..... problem is... people keep rubbing my stomach for luck when I'm waiting for a seat...

Actually... I don't concern myself overly much with the body type. the most important thing is that the person is comfortable with thier body. If they are not, I don't care how they look, they will never be happy with themselves.

To be truthful for over two decades i have only loved myself, but the body is usually someone elses. When you love yourself in another form it can only be true love, doing everything that could be pleasurable, for as long as possible, a never ending sequence of excitements as nerves are stimulated beyond the point of saturation. THe result is overwhelming, like a pheonix rising from its ashes one knows and sees joy expresed as the mirror smiles and tells you you are wonderful. I then reply with eyes pooling with tears, "I 'm glad someone got something out of this cause it did bugger all for me" Which was true as pleasure is given freely but their pleasure breaks into my heart and I feel priviledged to have been allowed to share a pleasure.

I get SO MUCH FLACK for liking skinny guys. Big guys are always writing me, complaining that I have a preference for skinny to average dudes. Then they ciritize me and tell me I am not skinny so how dare I require it in a man.
I just don't like big bellies. They crush me when they are on top of me, the penises are smaller (you know for every 32 pounds overweight, a man loses an inch of penis). I can't rest my head on their shoulder in bed...

Besides, scrawny guys have troubles getting women, they need admirerers too!

I'm very self-conscious about my own body so I tend to look for someone who is bigger than me. I dont like a man who is skinny/thin, but on the other hand I don't look for a muscular men either, I'd feel even more self-conscious and intimidate; although I have dated a muscular men before and I cut myself on this mad diet...lol...anyway thats another story on its own...but yeah I would definately want someone bigger and taller than me.

I've gotten less pickier as I've gotten older. But I'm really attracted to tall, thinner, dark haired guys. So in all honesty I have to say that yes I am attracted to body types similar to my own. Or is it because my dad was tall dark and slender? Probably a combination of both.

I consider myself to be on the average, maybe slightly athletic side.

I go for all types except for the two extremes: very skinny and very heavy.

I judge by personality, that is a lot of what makes someone sexy, and I'm also a sucker for a pretty face.

That said, and in response to the original poster, I find that lately I'm very attracted to women that look like you. I love curves.

To me AcesDJD... skinny is being about to count more than 80% of the bones in your body. There is also wiry, which is a bit different..... no excess fat but with definition.

hmm.

Well, I'm a visual person when it comes to sex. To have a successful sustained relationship, my partner's body type would absolutely matter.

As for getting to know people, being friends, or exploring other types of relationships, I'm truly interested in a person's views, behaviors, intelligence, humor, etc.

As for what I'm precisely attracted to: I don't do super-waifish-no tits-can see your spine when looking you in the face-skinny and I do not like overweight. Being fit, taking care of your body, and making an effort to please asthetically is all that's necessary in between.

average to fit is good. Three rolls of fat hanging over your low-rise jeans is not good.

I'm not a big guy by any stretch of the imagination 5'10", 155-160 pounds (although i work out, so i'm not just skin and bones) and I prefer women who and physically smaller than me. Therefore, my ideal preference is for thin, petite women... maybe 5' to 5'6" ... Not into women who are 'thick' (as some put it)... long and lean (but in a small frame) is definitely what 'does it' for me.

So, in short - yes, i guess i do go for my own body type to a certain extent.

I really am liking the honesty people are expressing with this thread. Thanks again everyone for putting their two cents in.

I think thats why I don't look for lovers in public but rather do it here. That way no one is uncomfortable, and less rejection either way.

I hate to say it, but after having lost alot of weight myself and being hard on myself about my weight, obese men are a turn off- I hate to be that shallow- but I guess I can't help who I'm attracted to. At the same time, I get really nervous with extremely skinny men becuase I am worried I will crush them, and they make me feel 'fat'- I know it's just my neuroses but still... So anything that's not an extreme I guess...

I go for the athletic to average my self. Depending on how they carry their weight I don't even mind those who carry a few extra pounds. A lot depends on how they put themselves forth. Hell I have known many BBWs who were sexy as hell.

well, personally i woulod not want a broad with a build like mine. I am 5"11 and 215 lbs that's too big a for a woman for me, I would like her to be in shape though, although if a girl is thin I would give her shot considering thin girls seem like the only ones into me.

I would have to say yes.....I keep fit & find that attractive in women, too.

Height isn't a deal-breaker, but I like taller women, as well.

Of course, they probably wouldn't look very feminine w/ my shoulders on a female body...so I'll draw the line there!

while a man who stays in shape has great appeal, the bodybuilder frame really turns me off. i much prefer lean, wiry builds. since i stand about 5'1", height is pretty much irrelevant.

one of my exes trains and exercises racehorses. he has the best body i've ever seen on a man, but he wouldn't appeal to most. he stands about 5'8" and weighs in at 135, with perfect muscle definition. he used to do dishes naked. i don't know if it was the idea of a man doing dishes or doing them naked, but it was immensely appealing

You all say that looks dont matter........ I will have to disagree with all of yall...

First off... if all of you people dont care about looks.. Im sure most of you wouldnt be single..lol.... WE ALLL have to be sexual attracted to someone in order to sleep with them .. or to be able to be sexual with them... I myself.. Im a bigger girl... and I dont think I deserve to be with a nasty man because im fat .. lol.... I need a hot man .. thats why Im single.... ..Unless I just want a relationship based on communication alone.. then .. sure I can date whoever.. But believe it or not.. sex is a big part of a mature relationship...

I dated a guy for 7 months... I wasnt attracted to him.. but I tried and tried to stay with him cause he was so nice and all that .. but .. I couldnt sleep with him ..

Anyways.. My point is.. we all obviously have different tastes.. thats how so ma diff types of people can have relationships... My type is.. a man with thick wide shoulders..and a smile to die for... I dont really like slim... So, .. I dont know.. built.. or just thickness.

I am tall and strongly built, and as I've gotten older I prefer my women to be similar in bodytype, if not a little larger (but much softer!). I like bigger girls who are tall and shapely, so ideally, I'd go for a girl who was about 6'-2" and a size 16 or so. I'm tall and large (but in good shape), so a girl that is larger but looks good is right up my alley. My girl isn't that big anymore (she lost some weight), but she still looks great when she is that size.

I'm a sucker for a big girl with a shapely waist and thighs.

off topic but you know the phrase big beautiful women? why don't they have the same for men?


They do - it's BHM for Big Handsom Man/Men

You know, I'll go on a tangent here. BBW is sort of an all-encompassing, politically-correct statement. There are both ugly and beautiful large women, just like small ones. It is more of a statement to save egos than a descriptive phrase. Most descriptive terms aren't based on a purely objective quality (beauty). There's no such thing as a SBW as a bodytype ("slender beautiful woman"). It's stupid.

Large women can be extraordinarily beautiful (even moreso than a skinny woman IMO). But not all of them are.

My theory is don't hamstring yourself with bodytype descripitions. Your profile picture should be descriptive and an accurate representation of your bodytype. If someone excludes you from their search because you are large without even giving you the courtesy of looking at your pics, tough for them.

I guess it holds true for me, somewhat. The body is not really the first thing I look at, but I do tend to be much more attracted to the lean, cut types. Not the heavily muscular, but lean, cut types. I have an athletic body...slim, proportioned. I do tend to date men who are very tall and lean, cut etc. I dated one who was slightly bigger, but I loved him so much and his body had nothing to do with the amazing character he had. I guess, in the end, like recognizes like...and they end up together.

Any woman who can't wipe her own a$$ because she is so fat... is totaly out of the picture...

That and that above elbow fat slab... cottage cheese thighs and a gunt that is or near being pushed around by their thighs.

I have seen some very beautiful women that are fat. True, I have slept with some of them. As much of an ego boost it is to say I can please a fat girl. It's just not something you want to brag about to your friends. Yes I'll admit bigger women give better head. I'll leave the sterio type at that, but some of us know the rest of the sterio type.

I am not saying all fat women are lazy or just eat junk. I have known a few that would eat less and work out more than I do. Sometimes liposuction is the only answer.

I wont be with someone who's a$$ is bigger than mine. I got a 40 inch waist so it's not like I am being picky. But that is my answer to same body type as my own.
