If you had to choose a preference between a thin man who is slightly underweight with a flat stomach and hardly any body fat.... or a slightly chubby man with a bit more more bodyfat and a slight stomach pudge.... which one would you choose?


slightly underweight/thin?


or slightly overweight/chubby?

Thinner. We've been over this several times now. People tend to gain weight as they age, especially Americans.

In real life, if a guy was interesting to me, a few pounds on either side of the equation would make no difference.

But as a general rule, a person who can maintain a healthy weight is more attractive to me.

Either one. I'll take the smart one with good manners out of those 2. Bonus points if he laughs easily.

Also, instant rejection for either one of them if he doesn't treat me like I am a human being.

Ditto to all of this.

Also, if 'slightly underweight' means not beefcake, that's a good thing.

Would depend on his age and lifestyle given that everything else was equal.

Exactly. Who cares about petty details like slightly under- or overweight? That's nowhere on the list of priorities. Not even on the radar.

I'm copying her answer, plus:

If he's a little thin, I'd feel like I should feed him, and I don't really like to cook.

Seems like being a skinny hipster dude is the in thing now.

I'm a guy, but I thought I'd chime in with this.


I'm in the military, and have been injured, off-and-on over the past few years. I have gone from 10% body fat to 22% body fat, back to 10% body fat and back to 22% body fat (due to meds and lack of exercise because of injury)


I'm 5'9" and weighed between 155-180, 38yrs old


I've noticed a significant increase in action being on the lighter side, and a significant decrease in access to lady-parts on the heavier side. I think the girls like the 6 pack more than they like the tool shed. Also, when on the thinner side, my face looks more chiseled, and I appear younger than on the heavier side. So as a man, it appears that women prefer a little thinner over a little thicker, but that's just from my personal experience

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

Either.
Slight weight fluctuations are normal.
