All you guys there on PT, send in your opinions! What makes a fat girl appealing to you?

Edit please.......

What i was meaning to say, was i personally think its about confidence!
I think most men will be attracted to an outgoing larger sixed woman and a thinner girl who is a walflower ;)

I dunno about the buff, health-conscious guys on PT, but I (female) go around town with a (female) friend who is 150# overweight, and guys just DROOL after her when they think no one sees them. She gets double- and triple- takes.

I also went out for a while with a guy who was interested in much older women. (In my late 30's, and he thought I was too young to be REALLY attractive!) I think that while guys don't like to admit when they have non-mainstream tastes, there are a significant number out there who find a broad spectrum of women attractive or who have fetishes for particular things that others might find unattractive.

I think Black and Spanish men like the bigger girls, but not the "average" White man.

I personally do not know any men that prefer big women but that is just from the men I know. And that could also have to do with self-esteem and confidence...

I know men who are attracted to heavier women who hide the fact because they get ribbed by their buddies. In fact one of them is a friend of mine and he flat out stated that he preferred a woman who (and I remember almost exactly what he said because it wowed me so much considering the types of girls he always dates lol) said "If it were up to me I'd rather have a woman who's a size 18 and comfortable with herself than one who is a size 6 and always obsessing about her weight." So maybe it's as much about self confidence for some men as it is about the weight issue.

I think everyone has their specific likes and dislikes; it's not wrong or just is.

I think it depends on the guy ! There is obese,chubby and valuptious. Most men are not attrated to skinny. What about the song about a big butt woman1 everyone has differnt taste. I have atleast 60lbs to loose and I am 50 Can you believe Ive had men hit on me. Whatever! Beauty is skindeep but ugly is through and through!

I have always been pysically attracted to fat women.

I have never tried to analyse why, I always notice bigger girls more than thin girls and I find them very very sexy.
