How do women feel about big guys, really?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Hey James, there are lots of different appeals to different people. Some people like thin, some like short, some like takes all sorts so try not to take it toohard if you dont appeal to some [ yeh, yeh I know easier said than done sometimes. But you will develope a sense of 'what will be will be if you are happy with yourself]

Personally I dont mind big. I dont mind a few extra pounds or even bigger and I have dated a few. They are just as attractive as anyone else. In fact. I like some beef to hold onto lol - Its attractive in that, big bear kinda security feel safe and snuggly. But you are only young, 21 and at my age if I was to date a bigger kind of guy my only concern would be for his health. But that doesnt mean I wouldnt still date the guy if he was really really nice. Hang in there and some girls will appreciate you for you

Guys can be the same too you know, run for cover if a girl doesnt fit there ideal. Sad to see its a cruel world sometimes, but there ARE nice people out there. I agree with the other post, dont read 'image' magazines, look after yourself and try not to compare. Also keep in mind some people may not be looking the other way because of your size. A lot of people run from relationships or too much dating because they have issues of their own. Its not your problem so stick it out and you will bump into someone nice eventually [ it is, sad to say, a numbers game sometimes - well increases your odds right lol] Just keep being honest....and happy !! with or without someone

Relax James, your still young. I know all about it, been a big guy my whole life.
Its all personal preferance dude. You cant take it personally if someone isnt
intersted in you cause your a bigger guy. I know thats easier said then done.

And for the record, there are more woman out there into bigger guys then you
think there are. Seriously.
But here in America girls your age and guys for that matter too
are so influenced by what is in the media and on tv and by there friends.
And the last time i looked i havent seen any bigger people being pushed as sex symbols
or on the cover of people as the sexiest person.
Now not everyone is influenced by others. My late gf was younger then you.
And id like to think that all she saw when she saw me, was just me.

So just be patient, relax and enjoy life. Hell your 21, go out and have a beer tonight

Any woman who would do that doesn't deserve a man like yourself! I LOVE big guys, more often then not I reject the little guys! I have always said that I need a man sturdy enough to handle me! Some of those smaller guys I'd be afraid of breaking!

To me body type is NOT an issue. Hey i'm chubby too lol. It's all about the face to me. They HAVE to have a cute face...if they are pudgy or built it doesn't matter to me!
