I prefer curvy women.

I just don't understand the appeal of dating someone who looks like they haven't gone through puberty yet.

Ain't that the truth... LOL!

And especially if they happen to live in ''rural' or ''southern'' kinda places!

Yes, they can be decently attractive, but I would never date an overweight women. People generally don't stop gaining weight. While an overweight women can be decently attractive, a obese women is never attractive and most overweight women at my age will end up obese later in life.

Hence, I only date women who are at a healthy weight like I am.

Huge? 185 pounds;

Huge? 183

Huge? 181

Huge? 185

180 Exactly..

I'm sure you get my point. Photos from My Body Gallery website if anyone is interested.

Welcome - My Body Gallery - What Real Women Look Like

I was 180 for a while, and I am 5'8, with a large frame. NO one ever guessed me at higher than 150. Not even my hyper critical, fat phobic mother.
Well it depends on the height. 180 is not that much if you are 6 feet. I was only able to find one of the girls you listed at that height, and you seem to have ignored a lot of girls.

However, lets take a look at 5'8 180.





Thats how normal girls at that weight look like. Quite a bit of fat, but its still okay. So what happends if they gain another 50 pounds like they eventually will.

Then you end up with something like this




Wouldn't you guys be much happier if she had a body like this and then after child birth and some years she may end up like the 180 pound woman.

Another thread by the men of Fashion & Beauty that talks about women the way slave merchants used to talk about slaves.

Your 5'8 180s are definitely attractive. The 140 is what I'd call hot.

Actually it's a pretty well-known fact that nobody is harder on women than other women!

What, exactly, is your point? I specifically said in that post, "SO much depends on frame size, height, how the weight is carried, etc.".

I did not "ignore" a lot of girls. I plugged in 180 for the search criteria and posted examples of women who weigh 180 and are nowhere near huge, in response to Fluffy Bunny / Pink Bunny / whatever's assertion that 180 is "huge". I was pointing out that 180 pounds, by itself, doesn't have any one "look" to it because so many other variables count. I did not think it was appropriate or necessary to share every possible example of an 180 pound woman from that page and take up the entire thread in doing so, when I posted the link to that site so people could go check it out for themselves.

I assumed people could work the search function on the "My Body Gallery" site on their own, being adults capable of computer use, if they wanted to plug in different numbers for height and weight.

FYI, the women in my earlier post were, from top to bottom: 5'7", 5'11", 5'10", 5'9", and 5'8". Pretty even distribution from 5'7" through 5'11" there, especially considering how I did not put any height parameters in my original search, just weight.

Since you missed so much the first time, here is my original post so you can try again.

You know, that may be generally true out there in real life but around here it often seems that most of the nasty comes from posters that are (assumed to be) male.

No overweight women can't be hot, just like some thin women aren't hot. It really depends on how attractive their face is.
