It is definitely 400X tastier. And there's calcium and protein.

Let's get one for Amber.

Seriously, I have not touched soda in years. Years. Not just chemical, that gas inflates the belly.

Honestly, I pretty much cut down on drinking soda when I was 10, and replaced it mostly with iced tea (other than maybe 1-2 a week or if going out to eat).

By the time I hit hit college, I didn't really drink it in the dining hall. Ever. I became infatuated with sparkling water. (and mixing juice with sparkling water)

By the time I moved out on my own, I was too cheap to buy it and just started drinking mostly tea at home. One time I bought a six pack of kiwi strawberry soda I didn't even finish it. It was in my fridge for 2+ years.

Nowadays, I'll have some occasionally. A nice artisan soda in an interesting flavor made with real sugar. Or a homemade one in a restaurant. But I've been know to drink Dry Sodas a lot more frequently than other ones. I went through a phase where I had 2-3 a week for about 2 months. Probably because they were really really cheap, and restaurants stopped carrying them. Then I went back to normal, and I probably have it 15 times a year. (I've had some ginger ale in my pantry now for about 9 months....)

She can be a good FB/FWB if weight is a factor but for a relationship I would want a slim/toned girl.

Yes, it is a deal breaker. Im not a member of Fat Admirers Club, and I take care of myself and would want the same from my SO. Believe it or not, for me it has very little to do with looks and physical attraction, but much more with attitude towards ones health and well being. If you are obese, its because you choose to be that way or lack intelligence to reach for readily available toos to change it. Proper nutrition and exercise solves this problem, anything else is BS excuse with an exception of a tiny minority of people who have a medical condition which makes it very hard to lose or even maintain weight. If you dont care about putting garbage in your body, ruining your health, and being a slob in general - chances are we arent a good match.

Threads like this always feel like they are revenge against someone. I wonder why the thread starter has an overwhelming desire to assemble a long list of e-handles to validate his/her opinion. Is it an ego boost, or is it fun to hurt a bunch of people's feelings? As it so happens, weight is a deal breaker for me. Why did you decide a roll call was needed on the issue?

Yes.

A little overweight is ok...20 pounds, whatever.

Obese? No way in hell.

yes .... to a point.

as others have said, it's not the weight per se. it's how one carries oneself and who that person is. but I would have a hard time dealing with someone who was obese. I just wouldn't find them physically attractive.
