I think the guy who wrote the article must be pretty young. The older one gets, character and self confidence becomes more important than looking like, or expecting your girlfriend to look like, a Victoria's Secret model.

I am tall and for most of my life, I've been between 10 and 20 pounds overweight. I was a sturdy, muscular kid and I'm a sturdy, muscular woman. I've never been thin a day in my life. I am lucky to be tall and well proportioned however.

When I was single (in my twenties and then after a divorce, in my forties) I also never had any problem attracting the attention of the opposite sex. Though my figure has never been what I'd consider perfect, and certainly never THIN, I am a self confident woman, and I've always enjoyed the positive attention of intelligent, professional, and frankly HANDSOME, men (as well as a few nut cases but that's another story!).

And I can't even begin to tell you how many of those men have told me over the course of time that they enjoy the softness and curviness of a woman who ISN'T "thin."

To each his own, but to my sisters out there who aren't scrawny or who are obsessing about trying to fit into those size 2 pants, I say "Quit stressing about it - stress is much more unattractive than a few extra pounds of curve!"

#4 was the only comment that seemed incorrect to me.

I'll speak for all men and say universally, that visually, most men do not care about a women's weight, but rather her comportment, deportment, displacement, suspension and handling. Note: that's only for physical aspects

Except for the Finnish!

Aptitude and Attitude will definitely mean the most 'in the long run', but then, there are some men who only like women for the short 'around the world' trip. So, it is imperative for the women to be wise and discerning to filter the field of potential 'drivers'.

Yes but i think most of the men looks for slim one more than any other, that's my thinking.

Some men love thick women, BBW, super sized BBW, athletic, thin, super thin, etc. It's all in the eye of the beholder.
