I might find woman #1 hot is she has a nice personality

For some reason, in places like France and Italy they'd say that woman #3 is obese.
I'm glad my taste is more american.
#3 looks overweight and not toned to me. I thought most men would prefer #2. I like to look long and lean with a little curve.

I would have to agree with France and Italy on this one

I definitely pick #2 and as does my dad, #3 was dead last to both of us. He is obviously straight, he has been married for 18 years to my mom who is a pretty, slim woman. My measurements are 32-25-35 and my weight is 115 at 5'5" and I'm actually working on eating very healthy and exercising more to hopefully get my waist down to 24 inches and my thighs down some, and my weight down to 105. Honestly most guys who are attracted to me like girls skinnier than I am. I think it's quite possible that many agree with these opinions but are afraid to say anything because you all cry 'anorexia' at a bmi of 20 or less when in reality 17.9 and below is 'at risk' and can still occur naturally. Plus size models are lazy. They want to sell their face but sit around all day instead of building muscle tone and burning off the fat. They choose to be mediocre. The worst part is that so many have absolutely gorgeous faces but what a shame it is that they treat their bodies like trash cans.

*edit* that most recent girl does too look overweight, you can see it in her face arms waist and what you can see of her legs as well.
I agree with you for some points. Btw, I use to be in the plus size industry and the girls were not toned at all at least in my market. I use to get you are too small, I was size 12 btw 5'11. You're legs are toned do you run! lol All plus size models all not lazy and do workout but I was definietely not the norm.

But, I am wondering your age because I feel that guys that like girls that are thinner tend to be in the 18-25 range because I use to put that kind of pressure on myself.

Now that I am older not so much.

In additon, guys are confusing one minute they say #3 is perfect, but then guys complain about women being fat.

I can assure you that Black men don't have to "keep quiet" about any desire they may have for thin/skinny women. In the Black community, skinny women (much like light-skinned men) are temporarily "out of style," but that doiesn't mean there aren't many skinny black women to choose from, for those that like that type.

For example, in the Black community Beyonce gets the most attention, but her ex-bandmate Kelly Rowland also is considered sexy, and gets attention as well.

I think we should be more concerned with the fact that little girls have low self-esteem because everyone is concerned with body image..i know people are going to roll their eyes at the feminist cliche,but it's true.. women have lower confidence than men because of media and all the superficial crap that's thrown at us on a daily basis..and women aren't helping each other by provoking these insecurities. We should be paying attention to health,yes,but who cares what size you are, if you are motivated in your own life and have goals, you are an active participant in the world.

I feel curvy is having hips, bust, butt. All that stick out so to speak I guess in the hour glass figure with also some extra pounds on their body. That person can also be overweight in terms of bmi. Chubby to me is a person who is overweight bmi but tends to have a round figure.
Livelayne 105 at 5 5 is not healthy. At 105 that is a bmi of 17.5 so your goal is to be at an anorexic weight? Just like being overweight is not healthy same with underweight which can lead to osteoporosis, vitamin deficiencies, more prone to illness.

This is my perception of "curvy":

http://fullhdwallpapers.in/wp-conten...kone-curve.jpg

There might be a little Photoshop work done on the skin. However the curves should remain Intact. This image is from 2009 (I remember it being all over fashion magazines in India). Over time, she might have put on pounds by eating extra parathas . Who knows for sure.

Spoiler
I wonder why I am so attracted to women lately . I never used to care about women besides my mother till 2 years ago, no matter how pretty they looked. WHY DID I CHANGE FOR THE WORSE. LORD SHIVA, PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND

High-Larious!

The biggest offenders in any conversations about weight are women. Men have made it clear that we are attracted to a relatively large variety of weights and body shapes. But it's women who badger each other about their shapes - either they're too thin with no shape, or too heavy.

The second biggest offender would be the fashion industry.And that industry is not run by straight men, so again we (straight men) are not the problem.

Curvy is all about waist to hip ratio and nothing to do with body fat percentage. I've seen women who actually got less curvy when they gained weight, because their waist filled in and made their hips less prominent.
