I used to work with a guy who said "I will never date a girl who is over 130 pounds". I remember thinking he was being a little harsh. Fast forward 8 years later and he is marrying a full figured woman. I was shocked because I remember that young and cocky guy who would never give a "curvy" girl a chance. Guys, has your standards changed over the years?

He must've gotten desperate, lol.
There's a difference between having too high standards, and being realistic. It's realistic that I only want to date women who are cute, in shape, and smart.
If I only wanted to date gorgeous virgins? Not realistic, I'm being insane.
No, my dating standards haven't changed. For a simple reason--dating is a lot of work. Relationships are trying. Marriage is hard, and not loads of fun.
So why go through all that agony if you're not going to settle down with someone you're fairly attracted to? Granted, it might take work to be able to get what you want. I've been spending enough time at the gym that I can preacher curl 105 pounds, chest press 85, and I am about a month away from having defined abs. I only want to date girls who meet my standards, so I'm improving myself, despite my legs and arms hurting enough that I need painkillers some nights.
Instead of nerdy shy slobs griping, "girls only want confident good looking guys" and overweight girls griping "guys only want stick thin models" why not improve ourselves?0
