You mean you like fat, not meat.


I prefer thinner, I am NOT a chubby chaser, IMO it's flat out not attractive.

Ladies: Do you prefer a man slightly underweight or slightly overweight?

Taking nothing else into account, slightly underweight.

Slightly overweight is not a deal breaker (especially in my age range, heh) but all else being equal and if I had to choose: skinnier.
I am relatively thin and despite jacktravern's interesting hypothesis LOL I have no intention of gaining weight; I just do not find overweight people viscerally and personally attractive.
But since I am in my mid-50s and dating, I am also realistic and even if marginally overweight if the guy was otherwise kind and fun and interesting it wouldn't matter.

Slightly overweight. An extra 10lbs on a guy doesn't bother me. Not really into scrawny, but I don't care about physique much. If you are talking about 10lbs over or under, I don't think it's that noticeable on someone who is 6 feet or taller.

Slightly overweight. I'd go so far as to say that I prefer slightly overweight to "ideal" body weight.

Underweight is not attractive to me. Period.

Actually, overall body shape is more important to me than BMI. A little gut is fine, as long as the shoulders are broad.

Slightly underweight guys. Most of my crushes have been lanky guys.

Slightly overweight. I want to feel like he can protect me if needed.

I seem to prefer a man with a little bit more meat on his bones than a skinny flat man lol. My SO is about 6 feet and he is quite muscular and has just a bit of a tummy (not much just enough) it feels more manly to me. It turns me on and I'll stop there~
