It's a subject about as politically-incorrect as Bill Maher himself.
Many overweight girls are talking about the shallowness of men and how weight shouldn't matter when choosing THEM.
If it really doesn't matter, then why aren't heavy men getting much attention, either? Technically, wouldn't a heavier guy be more interested and feel more empathetic of your difficulties, and therefore be more desirable?
(I'm open for debate on that last sentence.)
I say this because I hate seeing people so unhappy with their own bodies. They need to be with someone who gets it. But many of them get their opinions from thin people who like thin people. It's like me feeling guilty eating a brownie because someone else is on a diet.
You're beautiful, but on a different frame than me or other thin men are usually comfortable with. Find someone who IS on your frame or understands your frame. That's the only way to discover your own beauty, and for him to discover his own desirability as well.
Well, let me preface this by saying that I don't have a strong body type preference. I'm fat, but I've dated all kinds of bodies.
But your main point assumes that I'm unhappy/insecure with my body, so I need someone who's also unhappy and insecure (which apparently is only possible from fat guys) to understand me. I LIKE how I look. And my boyfriend is a scrawny thing, but he's a damn good listener, so he has always understood me, even when I WAS insecure. We've talked about body image a lot, and even though he says he has never really felt negatively about how he looks, he understands everything I've been though and can fully appreciate where I am now.
I don't think that's the case. I see both guys and girls who complain about how weight shouldn't be a factor but then won't listen to their own words. I also have a friend at work who is a bigger girl who wants to be the smaller one in the relationship and has a thing for very heavy guys.
I assume it`s the same reason fat guys don`t want to date fat girls. In the end most people will end up with someone who lives a similar lifestyle as them so overweight people date other overweight people and fit people date other fit people.
I guess for the same reason fat guys don't want fat girls.
I think its a psychological thing. These women tend to want their significant other to have traits that they lack.
Here is an example; I developed a crazy nose fettish because my nose was huge and not straight; then earlier this year I had a nose job. I wanted a man with a ski-slope or straight (greek nose), I still like men with a nice nose however the guy I have a major crush on has a large Italian nose that I like very much on him.
