Are Women Attracted to Fat Men?

Turnabout, etc......

There's a pretty popular thread going on about whether men are attracted to fat women. I put it to you this way: Are Women Attracted to Fat Men?

Let's be fair and see the other side.

LOL - I've thought of this myself. I definitely am attracted to a bigger man - but it has to be a certain kind of fat (and they have to be tall, too). Belly fat is the only kind that I don't mind. I don't like fat legs, fat hands or a double chin. However, I've been on a "lifestyle change" for about five years now and recently when I find myself attracted to a guy's personality, then I notice he's fat-in-the-belly, I try to shut the attraction off. I've come too far to enter in a relationship where the guy obviously is eating too much/drinking too much/ not exercising enough.

Only very recently have I started viewing fit & toned men as more attractive than fat men. I used to generally be drawn to fat men and prefer to date them because I didn't want to date anyone who was smaller than me or had a much fitter body than me; it was a total attraction killer.

To be honest, I really can't help but to be attracted to muscles! Not like scary bodybuilder muscles, but great definition and strong arms/back. I guess I agree with the previous poster and the only fat I can really tolerate and still find attractive is a little belly fat as long as it's minimal! Maybe because I try to stay fit/toned myself, I feel that men should do the same to stay healthy.

I'm turned off by fat men (more than 40 lbs overweight) for the same reason 12:29 "shuts the attraction off" - obesity is a sign that something's wrong in his life and he's not dealing with it. I don't believe in fixer-uppers.

I LOVE a well rounded chubby man! Not huge and blubbery with monster thighs that rub together when he walks. Or fat knees with flab that hangs over the knee bend on the back of his legs. Or double and triple chins with fat chipmonk cheeks. Or that awful roll of fatty flab at the back of his neck. Ewww!

But Thick and chubby with a nice rounded belly is very attractive to me. I'm just not at all attracted to a skinny man or even an athletic swimmer or runner build. And bodybuilders gross me out. I hate huge muscles with the veins popping out. Yea, give me a nice round belly man with some love handles.
