I'm a big guy (6'6" and 270 lbs), though I'm not really a fat guy (I wear 36" waist pants). I played football for three years in college and naturally lifted weights to gain size for the sport. The problem is, I feel like my size often works against me in social situations. People I meet in new situations are usually very standoffish with me. This is especially true with girls. When I meet girls, they seem to assume that I'm maybe a malicious person or someone of whom they should be leery. I'm not the most talkative guy when I'm around new people, so I don't put on a big act or anything. Anyhow, I feel like a lot of the trepidation about me stems from my size difference with most other people. So girls, are bigger guys off-putting to you at all? Do we seem threatening?
Most Helpful Girl
I'm very a small petite girl, 5'5" and 110 pounds. Very slender body and frame. Personally, I like "bigger" guys. Usually it's, the taller guys that I seem to really like, I don't really pay much attention to how much they weigh or anything... 270 lbs for a 6'6" sounds good, for your height. Now that I think about it, most guys I've dated were very skinny, but it honestly doesn't really matter that much to me. If I like someone, I like them for who they are.
I do understand that some girls might be "afraid" to talk to you, that's probably because you're a lot taller and bigger than them. I know you said you aren't the most talkative guy out there, but maybe just smile? And ask them how they're doing. Be cool and chill, don't worry too much.
Also, to answer your question "are bigger guys off putting to you at all?" for me, no. People need to get it out of their head that bigger guys are the bad one and shorter guys are the innocent ones. There are good and bad people everywhere, but your height or weight doesn't determine whether you're good or bad. That's just my opinion. :)1
