There are pretty fat females and there are handsome fat males out there.

Males, would you date a pretty fat female?

Females, would you date a handsome fat male?

If so, why? If not why? Can fat good looking people find true love?

Fat only becomes unattractive when it becomes unhealthy.

fat to me only means too heavy for your frame. some girls are naturally skinny and some are naturally a little thicker and still very pretty. Some girls are naturally too skinny for my tastes also. girls I can only think of one famous person who is an example of what i mean: drew berrymore if the diretor doesn't make her loose wieght for the role i think is very acctractive.

Whay pisses me off is that some "fat/overwight" people are just as predjudice agains fat people of the oppisite sex too.

Fat is probably not a conventional component of current standards of beauty. At one time full-figured women were considered ravishing.
Extra flesh showed that the individual had more than enough to eat.

Some people appreciate fat. Some people don't. Individual taste is individual taste.

what bothers me more than girls who are too skinny are fake boobs. I HATE FAKE BOOBS, i think they look nasty and i would never date a girl that has them.

Then you've never seen a good pair. Fake boobs can be great. There are hack jobs, but some you can barely tell.

And no, I wouldn't date a fat girl. There are girls who are a little "thick" and are still hot, but someone who's definitely overweight? Nope. Not attractive to me.

However, when most guys talk about the nastiest girl they've hooked up with, it's usually a fat girl. Mine was a girl who was too skinny. She clearly had an eating disorder, it was bad. Ribs, bony, disgusting. That was worse than the couple of heavier chicks alcohol has forced me to see naked.

"Yes but", and "Yes, but, I guess". The "but" being that fat people usually don't strike one as pretty, no matter how much you cushion the fact with euphemisms.

I wouldn't make weight a criteria for dating. If he/she is witty, intelligent and a genuine good person, nothing else should matter.

Nothing else? Uh...sexual attraction?

Sex SUCKS when you're not physically attracted. Don't get me wrong, I've met women who I wasn't initially "wow'd" by looks-wise and got very attracted after really getting to know them, but if she's plain overweight, not cute at all all the personality in the world still isn't going to do it.

Most boob jobs are changed straight to D cups. D's just don't look right on most girls. if a girl was completley flat and went to a b or c cup that would be understandable. But most likely most girls go straight to D cups.

Of course, sexual attraction is a huge factor, but feeling comfortable
with your body, even if it is not perfect, can be sexy too.

full figured and fat are two very different things.

That's true Bella.

Then I'd have to say, that I prefer full figured men
over skinny ones.

I think that it just really depends on how the person carries it.

Appearance is important. Appearance is what initially attracts people.

I think the physical attraction has to be there in the BEGINNING in order to ignite a romantic, lust-filled relationship.

AFTER you fall in love--and the pounds start adding up during the ensuing years--well, true LOVE IS BLIND.

Some men like women with a little or a lot of meat on their bones:

True Confessions of a Fat Admirer

Quote:
People would also probably imagine that all F.A.'s are alike: if you like one fat girl, you like 'em all. That's not the case. Fat admirers come in an endless number of types and variations, including male F.A.'s and female F.A.'s, straight ones and gay ones, fat ones and skinny ones. (For the purposes of this essay, though, the term "F.A." will refer by default to males who like big females.) Some of us are flexible enough to appreciate women of all weights, even thin ones, while other are far more specific and exclusive in their tastes.

One ideal of beauty spelled out in The Arabian Knights was a woman who was so wonderfully fleshy that she could hold a pint of perfume in her navel.

Another charmer had buttocks that quivered delightfully like leaping otters.
