I guess I'd say I am more attracted to men who are close to my size, but a little taller.

anything but bbw, they just throw the second b in there to make the first b not seem so bad
One step forward, two steps back... Okay, so it's great that you know what you don't want, but is it really necessary to be insulting just for the sake of it? Do you not aspire to be a good person of whom others can look up to you with admiration rather than down in distain? I just don't understand why it is that peeps choose to be rude instead of choosing to be a NICE person who others like. I'd imagine that you are in a very short supply of what most would deem 'true friends'.

Maturity IS a beautiful thing.

I guess I'm grateful that my parents and family life instilled into me that if you live by the rule of "do unto others as you would wish done to yourself" you can be proud of the person that you become.

I would be so embarrassed to be so juvenile at your age! As I would hope your elders are of you. Grow up & take some lessons in manners or you'll forever be an inmature little boy who needs his mouth washed out... Dang, I detest ugly 'tuded people!

I'm attracted to different body types. I like athletic women but I also like curvy women, so a few extra pounds in the right places can be very sexy to me. One thing I don't like is buffed women. Tight and toned is good, but when a woman starts looking overly muscular that's a turn off. I like a woman to look feminine. I don't want to date a girl who has arms like mine.

Thanks for the varied and honest answers. I think I am with the majority in that I might have a vague preference for someone not thin, but its not a hard and steadfast rule. I like teddy bears, atheletes, big, tall, short.... its rarely about their size. More of personality.

There are a few here I would be interested in, because of their articulateness. Some, never!! But thats what makes things work, having the choice and being yourself honestly.

Thanks everyone.....

My personal physical preference is size 14 or 16, D or DD,5-9 or 5-10,

Or, thick, busty and tall, in that order. However, it's a preference, not a requirement. But women of that ilk naturally turn me on independent of other factors. But other factors are more important for something longer term than popping my eyes out.

However, that doesn't mean I want to spend time with them, but I do like some eye candy. Not what everyone else may consider eye candy, but what I do.

The thing I find most appealing in general is a woman comfortable with her own body, whatever the shape. I'm more likely to start a conversation with a woman like that as opposed to my physical preference, but with insecurity.

Genetics didnt deal me in to athletics, so to seek that would be absurd.........
For me a bit of girth makes a good saddle to comfortable, if ya all know what I mean....
Likewise....... too big to wrap my legs around.......hehehehehe
Would be too big

I love athletic and thin girls...but, I have to say I am really tired of seeing a lot of women on many dating sites referring themselves as "athletic" when they are fat or overweight. Stop it!!! Being athletic is just that...you workout, hike hundreds of miles, bike thousands, and are in great shape. Athletic is NOT the new "average". It makes me ill to see so many people use that description when they are nothing like athletic. Just my own 2 cents. BUt, yes, I love a girl in as great shape as I am..or better..:)

The term BBW is for women

The term BHM is for men - Big Handsome Man

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'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.

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...

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

I think i have put my 2cent in on several of these threads, now i as something to this one. If everyone looked the same , smelled the same, talked the same, there would so many happy people. I think its one of these most degrading things to put a label on people> IF ur large its ur a bbw, how come if ur small ur not sbw, and if u ask me its funny when people put athletic out from thier name. If ur not workin out 5hours a day 7 days a week, and run 20miles a day that seems more like an athletic personl. Helll, watch football , some of them guys can show their butt crack and yet their large, still called in shape. As for me i just perferr a guy to be taller than me, when u look in his eyes someone is HOME, a nice smile works , humour is a big thing, thats what is sexy...... also have the other body type....does size matter there.......

thanks, i think i did this right......Too each his own!

Sorry; a flat chested chick with narrow hips, broad shoulders, and a hairy belly and chest, simply would not do it for me

I have been attracted to women from various body types. Slender, fit / athletic, average, curvy, chubby etc. The only body types that I'm not attracted to are extremely thin, obese, or woman who are hard core body builders.

Great thread OP!!!!

Im a plus size woman with curves and I at one time preferred men who were of average size (not muscle type men though).
I met a great man who is on the heavy side recently and after getting to know him, I found myself attracted to him even more and now i find myself wanting to be with him all the time!!!!

I'm attracted to people-not a body type. I've always struggled with my weight, however despite that fact I've never had an issue with meeting and finding men who were interested in me. I've dated the very thin to the very large and it wasn't so much the body type that won me over as the how well the person related to me and treated me. Yes, my manfriend has an average build and is quite athletic, but I didn't fall for him because of his size as much as the fact he stimulated my brain.

I married a big man who continued to gain weight throughout our entire marriage. He recently had gastric bypass surgery and to be honest- I think I found him more attractive heavier than I do now. I certainly respect his decision to get to a healthier weight and all that-but he just doesn't appeal to me as much ( go figure). I think the bigger problem isn't so much the weight gain or loss but how he related to me personally which became a deal breaker for me.

Someone suggested that like body types tend to attract each other-but I'd beg to differ on that. I think it's the contrasts in body type etc is what sometimes makes a person more appealing than being the 'same' shape. Most men who got past my size and got to know me fell head over heels for me because I have a positive people personality-and I'm a wise-ass lol. The thing is I neither think or believe anyone is shallow if they aren't phyiscally attracted to me-but the thing that does bug me is when SOME individuals need to chastize a person for their differences. Sure we all have opinions and beliefs that we may feel strongly about but sometimes those thoughts are better left unsaid.

I say 'love all of me or not at all'-and so far that has worked exceptionally well. None of us are perfect and that is what makes us all unique. Give me a man with a nice smile, a good sense of humor and smiling eyes and I'm hooked.
