Hey no skin of my back. I was just wondering why people rely on a description rather than the pictures that are posted.

If I were single, there are many things I would pass on too based on description, rather than take the risk.

Exactly. I'm not a bean pole but I'm hourglass shaped too. To be curvy you usually have to have a little extra (like the examples given above) otherwise it's bony.

Who cares if they describe themselves as curvy. They may be large and in charge but you don't have to date.them.

One man's definition of fat is another man's definition of not. There are plus size woman I find sexy. The most unhealthy thing of all is to feel your aren't right in society

Nope, not true. I'm hourglass shaped and I'm a size 1. The shape depends on the ratio between bust, waist and hips. It has more to do with bone structure, than fat.

If anything it sends them spiralling in the opposite direction towards being too thin. In other words, let them describe themselves as curvy, but I think people who want to call a spade a spade should just do so. If people have a problem with it they ought to grow a thicker skin. What next, being afraid to call short people short and using the term 'vertically challenged' as anything but a joke?
Cmon mac. So people who want to use a word according to its actual meaning (curvy - curves in all the right places) need to grow a thicker skin, but fat people dont? what type of screwed up logic are you using? As if we dont have enough of PC crap in todays lives. Stop buying into the brainwashing and social conditioning, drop the PC crap and say whats really on your mind.

I guess we all have different definitions of curvy.

Curvy to me is softer. (Again, like the examples given above.)
