hello everyone,

Let me just share with you what I have seen recently,

Yesterday, I came across a website that is playing a video about overweight women, as I'm one of them.

after watching the video, I becomemore confused and frustrated.

here is the link to the video: [font=Verdana][url="http://www.viddler.com/explore/themodernmancom/videos/1/"]

I just watched the video and still can't believe some of the stuff this guy says, and I'm now left wondering whether or not this guy is right.

So, I'm putting the question to everyone on this forum:

Do men find fat women attractive?
& do I 'v to become slim for guys to find me attractive?

please take few minutes to view the video and then you can advice.
I'll be waiting for your answers.

An overweight woman with a nice heart.

First of all the video is just one man's opinion. He certainly isn't speaking for all men, really just himself. (and I doubt if many women are chasing him btw) No question that some men are attracted to heavy women just as some men are attracted to red heads. Other men like thin women. Some women go for big men, and some don't. It's all just personal taste, like some people like Toyota and some people like Ford.

You have to be who your are, not become someone else to find love. I found this out after my first crush in high school. I kept changing completely who I was so the guy I had a crush on would like me. Of course this didn't work, and we never dated.

You need to figure out who you are, and be that person. The right person will love you for being that person. If you don't start off this way, a relationship will never last. So love you, and screw what anyone else thinks.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In my case I like thick women, not overweight but thick, like these ones...

I think overweight women can be very attractive. While I find looks important, an equally important trait is attitude and confidence. If a woman is overweight, but is fun to be around and has confidence in herself, that is more attractive than a slim, well built girl who isn't fun or who is lacking confidence.

I can't watch the video (I'm @ work) . I have always been attracted to larger women no matter my size at the time (I'm now a big guy married to a big gal ) . Personality & Attitude also play into attraction.

Good Luck,

I don't work out 5 or 6 times a week so that I can ask out fat women.

Asking this on a fitness section of the website, of course people are mostly going to vote for slim. If you went to a place for gamers - as a for instance - you might get more balanced views. I think most of us who take fitness pretty seriously would not want to date someone who is overweight. I've tried, but I just can't get past the extra fat all over the guy's body. I wasn't sexually attracted to him, and never could be.
