  • I’ve dated some overweight girls because they carry themselves well or know how to highlight their looks effectively which makes the difference.

    I don’t mind it but it really depends if she’s amazing on the personality and makes herself look elegant then I’m sticking with her

  • Depends on how overweight. Obese - no. Slightly above normal weight - yes. A little more meat on the belly is pretty comfortable for cuddling :3

  • I'm amazed at all the people who voted "yes." Attraction is what leads to a relationship. Without it, you ain't going anywhere. It may seem appealing at first if you're lonely and desperate, but years from now? You will regret your decision.

  • I wouldn't.

    1. I find it physically unnattractive. I don't expect or even want a girl who is runway model thin, but fat is gross to me.

    2. Most women gain weight when they get into a relationship so even if she is somewhat attractive despite being fat, she will probably get a lot fatter within a year or two.

    3. Fat women are hypocrites. They expect thin guys to overlook their weight and give them a chance when they wouldn't do the same for a fat guy.

  • Depends on how much overweight. A little overweight is not a problem but too much is not healthy.
    Looks and personality both are important. Being too fat and not trying to lose it indicates that she doesn't take care of herself. And it's kinda hard to care for someone who doesn't care about herself.

  • A woman's age weight or body size doesn't define who she is, its her personality that defines her
    As long as she is of legal age of consent and healthy there is no reason to not take a chance and get to know about her just because she is either younger or older, skinny or BBW

    • The reason is 2 fold. 1. Personality matters more. And 2. Im a big dude myself so I feel like that would make me a dick if I said no

  • As long as it’s not hugely overweight sure... like at 5’6 anything under 160lbs is fine.

  • Depends on how overweight, but then again, right now I am overweight, so I have no room to be a hypocrite. That is why I am on a fitness journey. If I expect my lady to take care of her body, well then it only makes sense to take care of my own.

  • Attraction has to be there to begin with for anyone. If someone is attractive to someone else, there is a chance of course. Some people are attracted to larger people, aka chubby chasers.

    Long story short, yes, if i find them to still be attractive. I prefer thinner women (my girlfriend is 5ft2 and 100 pounds) and i think she is gorgeous, but i still tell her she needs to gain weight because it is healthier for her.

  • Yes, we'll be friends but, it depends we might date or not. I'll just tell her that she is my friend, I can get a lot of girls but, I like her. So, if she likes me, she'd have work hard and get back in shape.
    Because, she probably won't accept me as a fat guy if she was fit.

  • I actually prefer fat women as long as they carry themselves well and seem like they take good care of themselves. I would still date a skinny woman, or a seriously obese woman, if she was really nice and likeable and was into the same stuff I am. Yes looks matter, but I'm not picky about what size of women can look good.

  • Yes and I did a few times. Because a person was cool. But I really love skinny or fit girls and those kind of relationship always came in a (sub) conscious scorn for my situation and myself and also some extent of envy and dissatisfaction for this matter, even though a person could be awesome. it's hard. I've found a very broad solution for this dilemma though. it's not ALWAYS a solution but it works often for me.

  • I honestly prefer overweight women. Visually, I find them more attractive and they feel nicer in bed. I know, weird coming from a bodybuilder. I'm 7% bodyfat. Someone needs some cushion somewhere. Skinny girls don't feel as good.

  • No, because, at least in my family, obesity can be an indication of a short temper and a lack of self-control. I've seen this trend on "my 600 pound Life" too, so obesity can often come with a bad personality.

  • I don't mind a little weight. I would actually much rather, because they won't be so high maintenance.

    Knowing that I have imperfections, I am MUCH more likely to approach someone else with other imperfections. :)

  • I already have once. She was self centered, bad tempered, aggressive with deep down obvious hatred for men, used the crap out of me said I was temporary until something better came along, she found my faults but never saw hers. She kept gaining weight, (which had nothing to do with our breakup) trying to make me jealous all the time for no reason. Been there done that no.

  • I would but unless I work near her and am forced to interact or she does something interesting it's not likely I would find out enough about her personality to date her regardless of weight I'm Far more likely to approach the more attractive skinny or average girls just by looks.

  • it depends on whether there is a personality that makes me forget she is overweight. i can still find woman, despite being fat, cute but if they look too overweight its hard to look over.

  • I voted no but love is an involuntary reflex. The heart wants what the heart wants. But the hard on wants what every hard on wants a fit beautiful, promiscous girl! I am very particular. At this juncture of my life I don't have the time or the inclination to get into a sexless, loveless relationship. So I'm different and carry myself differently. I certainly wouldn't belittle her or anyone else for that matter. I have only love in my heart. I know what I want and there is no chance of compromise. My life has been a long parade of blonde haired, blue eyed, big busted, bimbos with especially promiscuous proclivities. It's quite frankly the only type suitable to my lifestyle.

  • Personally, no. If it's a bit of pudge, fine, but full-blown overweight just isn't what I'm into. I need to be physically attracted to the person I'm with.

  • Why are people so dishonest though? Like what do you get out of telling people their weight is just a number and that it doesn't matter, when you in reality would never give an overweight person the time of the day?

    • I always ask this question lol The world we live in now we have to be extra careful not to offend anyone lest you get a target on your back "just like they do"

  • I naturally am attracted more to skinny guys so for me, I dont see myself being attracted to a overweight person. Also fitness is quite a important part of my life. I value being healthy and fit so I feel like we may not have that common if he is overweight.

    • I have the right to be mad and I'll act as I please!

    • You are 41 and act like a child who cannot get his way. Not everyone will find everyone else attractive. At your age I thought you would know this.

  • If I was attracted to him then sure. But I'm not going to date someone I'm not attracted to just because he's a nice guy.

  • Yes honestly now i am and at first i wasn't attracted to his looks bc he's a bit chubby and that's not normally what i go for but he wasn't really over weight or fat just his face is chubby but as i started to love him.. I don't how it happen but i suddenly got attracted to everything about him and never want to let him go. ❤

  • I don't think I could honestly, no matter how great his personality if I was not sexually attracted to him it would not work in the long run. I might try it, but I don't think it would last as I simply do not find that attractive.

  • being friends & going out, sure.
    date? no. why would i give him hope when it wouldn't work out simple cos my lifestyle?

    but first, define overweight. a little extra is no problem. having a lot extra weight, is.
    like the girl on your pic here, is normal with a bit of extra by me

  • Dating a guy that's overweight is fine, just not my preference? Nothing to do with the extra weight, I just don't want to experience a sick partner due to any number of illnesses. A dad-bod is fine with me

  • For me political views come first and foremost. Find someone that is mature, logical and open to debate if you do not share political views. I am a newlywed and the most important deciding factor for husband material for me was politics. After that personality (encompasses his interactions with others including family), looks (encompasses what our future children would look like with our combined visible genetics).

  • weight doesn't always have to do with everything. People always think that because your chubby or someone is fat they can't get a man or a lul lady. Weight does not define a person for heaven sake.
