I read a myTake and it has got me thinking: When you're not the ideal body type for your sex, it can make finding a partner much, much more difficult. I had recently read a myTake about a young man and his experience in the dating world being the "skinny guy".
As you may know, the ideal body type for a male is to be tall, "jacked", and just masculine all around, and according to him, being skinny was just not that, and he discribed his experiences and plan to change what he wasn't happy with.
As I was reading I thought about my own issues I had previously experienced by being the "fat girl" and how similar they were to his. I am in the process of losing the last bit of weight I need to lose, but it has had me wondering.
I feel like the results will be split between guys and girls because everyone has their own experiences and view on how things are hard. We'll see though.
Please be respectful and mature with your opinion.

•They are seen as unattractive by many guys
•They are usually made fun off and shitted on by other girls.
• It is much harder for them to get laid because according to many guys "skinny is better". 🙄
• They aren't respected, like at ALL.
• Most fat girls can't rely on looks to get what they want.
Well thanks for all the answers. Be on the lookout for my take about being a former fat girl and the struggles I went through.

100% harder to be a chubby girl, didn't even have to read the description. Girls have a sort-of defined line their bodies are confined to in beauty. The amount of guys that are into chubby girls or think they are cool is a much smaller number than girls who prefer skinny guys5

So what my friends and I have concluded is simply - Men get shit for dating heavier women. Its sad and shallow but very true. If you are not fat and hang around younger men enough you will invariably hear jokes about drunken hookups with "fat chicks". It is supposed to be embarrassing to get with a heavier woman because men are so focused on bodies, or at least they are supposed to be. But its somewhat more acceptable to hook up with heavy woman while drunk, which is why sadly a lot of overweight girls have random hook ups that never call, and don't get asked out often. Of course there are exceptions to this - there are men out there that are totally not ashamed to be attracted to and love a heavier woman. But socially, it is not really accepted among men so they hide it.5
