even though many guys prefer they have some meat on them. How do you let your sig oth know that it's okay for them to have meat on them especially when they love being thin?

If a woman wants to be thin, that's her personal choice. Telling her that you prefer her with a little more meat on her bones might be harming her more if you're doing it constantly. Telling her that it's okay to have an extra pound or two without being an idiot is a tricky thing to do. Some women are very touchy and both offensive and defensive at the same time when the subject of discussion is her weight or body. If you are in a relationship and she's a SO of significant time, you would think that the both of you can have these discussions as mature adults.

If she is healthy, happy and feels good about herself, why try and change what she doesn't want to change?

If she's happy, healthy and comfortable at her current weight, then you shouldn't say anything.

Eh, maybe some of it has to do with where you live as well. When I lived on the coast of CA men wanted short, very thin women. I never got approached and could count the dates I had living there on one hand. It wasn't until I moved to the east coast that I got any dates at all and ended up finding my boyfriend. I guess they like a little bit more weight over here.

Some girls? My experience is that most want to. Even if they happen to be thick.
