why do do many women have "body type = thin"Page 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
when in reality they should put "average"? Or, since this is Texas, they really mean "a few extra pounds"? They demand honesty in the men they look for but don't offer it themselves. I have no problem with chubby women but say so up front - it won't scare me off.

You are also 'a few extra pounds' since you have a double chin and a bit of a beer belly in your pics.

All the women I have dated that listed their body type as "thin" were slender.

I dated a guy, didn't even look at his body type tbh as he had pics, but one time i noticed he had athletic as his body type but i'd met him and he had a pot belly. Like athletic is someone with abs, as well as muscle definition.
I didn't care as i wasn't looking for a particular body type anyway, just he didn't know what athletic meant, i guess most people don't know what stuff means. Not sure what i have as mine but it should be big butt, slender legs and small boobs combo.

Both sides are guilty of misleading people about their appearances.

Life goes on.

I agree, OP. I always prefer honesty. However, these people probably see themselves as what they want to be, not what they really are. I think my body type is average but I've seen women who are bigger than me put "Average body type" as well. So I don't know what is average anymore.

In the Far East, a woman of my body shape and height is considered big. But I'm a size 10 in the UK or 6 in the U.S. Which is on the small side of the spectrum. I think standard varies from one place to another.

The most annoying thing about online dating is that some people tell outright fibs, hoping that they'll win you over with their other qualities that you'll forgive them for telling fibs in the first place. Err, no, it's actually one of the big red flags. And these people will moan if they potential dates lie...Go figure that.

If you haven't figured it out yet, that double chin is a dead giveaway to seeing more than you'd like to.

One time i spoke to a guy on skype, he wasn't a perv so i was happy to, but wouldn't put the cam on. I could tell he was obese from his breathing.

Is that why you said you have the money in the other topic? I am not a 99p meal deal. Or 99c if you're in the US.

No, it's just the order in which I read the threads. This one was first. My first thought was

Why are you describing me?

Ew. I used to love taking my kids there, then we didn't go for about a year and had enough money for a healthy diet. One time i decided to treat them to a McDonalds and it did taste rubbish the food, nothing had flavour except the sauce and there was way too much. My kids never even asked to go again it was that bad.

I had a conversation about this with one of my female friends. Athletic was one of the examples that I used. She asked how I would describe her. I think of her as being average to very slightly overweight. She reminded me she can easily run 10 miles, does very well in volleyball and has been know to carry heavy camera equipment all day. She doesn't fit the mold for what many people consider athletic but she kind of is. She'd have to carry me for 9.75 miles of that 10 mile run.

I find a lot of body types to be optimistic though. Thin = average most of the time. A lot of people who say they are average are kind of overweight. But... I guess that's kind of average now. I'd say we could tell by their pictures but a lot of people use pics that are old.

As a stockholder, I object to to your review.

( I agree with you, by the way. The best thing you can buy from them, is their stock. It fattens my wallet nicely)

You're a few extra -- not average. Just my honest two cents' worth.

When I used a different OLD website, some women would label themselves as "a few extra pounds" or "curvy" when they were significantly overweight or obese based on their pictures. The more important point is women and men should have relatively recent and accurate pictures of themselves. Not pictures that were taken 10 years ago and/or when they were 50 pounds lighter.

Date IRL & the problem is solved.

If you cannot do that, then do not complain about chubby chicks obfuscating!

I'll find women who are as overweight as OP putting average -- but I will say I don't find that many putting Thin when they're on the borderline of average & a few extra pounds. There tends to be less subjective leeway on that one. But then again, I'm not in Texas.

Everyone has their own definition of what each body type means. Not saying that one person's "thin" is another person's "obese" but one person's "average" is another person's "a few extra pounds" or "thin". So it isn't necessarily lying if you have a different interpretation than the person put on their profile.

Of course some people do lie when they purposefully select a body type that doesn't match their own interpretation.

But OP is a typical worthless rant. There's nothing to be gained by whining people don't behave the way you want them to; take responsibility for yourself. The obvious solution is to look at the pic and decide if that person is attractive to you or not, regardless of what they selected for body type. No pic? There's always the [next] button.
