It seems these days almost every woman wants a slim, fit, or athletic guy even, including overweight women. So I wanted to know if there are any women who would date or have a relationship with a chubby or overweight guy? If so, what are your limitaions? If you would not, please explain why?

BTW, I'm chubby, however, I am cutting back on portions and have started an excercise regiment.

when I met my hubby he weighed 130 #s and wore a size 29 pants he was skinny, and what made it worse was he could eat anything and not gain an ounce. then 3 things happend
He started dating me( I prefer men with a little meat on their bones)
He got a new job where he wasn't as active
He turned 30.
I prefer him with the extra 35#s
I would say a lot depends on how they are chubby or overweight. A man who is bigger but solid is prefered than a man who is all jiggley overweight.
For me what is on the indise is a whole lot more important that the outside.

I voted for maybe, because it depends on how overweight the man is. I'm about 25 pounds overweight, so I wouldn't have a problem dating someone equally overweight, but a lot more than that I would find a big turn off. Part of the reason why is because eating healthy and taking care of yourself is important. If he doesn't think he's worth enough for that, why should I?

I absolutely would! Since I'm not perfect, why would I expect someone else to be perfect? I want a man who is kind, has a sense of humor, treats me well, and has brains. And most important, wants to be with me. If I could have all that, I would be happy.

One thing I think MIGHT drive me crazy is a man who weighed less than me. But that's just MY insecurity. We can NEVER be thin enough!

A good person, male or female, is a lot more than a number on a scale.

I think girls are more easily persuaded by personality than guys are. Guys usually want something "pleasing" to look at while girls definitely go for guys with other qualities other than looks. Don't get me wrong, initially, I think all people - men or women- are attracted to how someone looks but in the end, it's always about compatibility.

Call me shallow and pretentious if you will, but NO. I work out every single day and eat healthy and completely take care of myself. I expect someone I am with to have similar values and a healthy respect for their own body. If they can't respect their own body, how can they be expected to appreciate what I do to stay in great shape?

No way Twinkles ... I am a firm believer that people date others of similar looks so I can see what you mean!
