I am 5'10 and a size 12. I'm not really sure if I'm fat or not but will guys not like me because I'm not skinny?

How it basically works is that everyone has a "standard" in appearance and once you hit the minimum standard they'll go for, everything else is a bonus. Many guys seem to like twigs in the media, but if you see twigs in public, they're not necessarily attractive. The media just doctors the photos up to the point where they aren't real at all.
Guys typically follow the "rib cage" rule. If you can see her rib cage, she's probably no good. Not many guys can deal with a girl who needs to stick her finger down her throat every meal because she fears she's gonna get fat.
Now slimmer girls do look more attractive, but there's also a large amount of them who make themselves impossible to date because they're so self-entitled. So this is where I can give ya some good news. While I hate rating systems, I'll put it this way. Every guy has a "standard" in appearances as to what they'll go for. If a guy wants to date, once he hits that minimum rating, he starts looking at everything else. So if he can date a girl who guys would deem a 6, all the extra "points" won't even matter. If you are a 6 and an 8 comes along, even though she's nicer to look at, he's still going to typically look at everything else anyway because he's already happy with your appearance. So if you're a 6 and someone's an 8, he's not gonna be looking at who is prettier because he's already content. He'll be looking at everything else like attitudes and such.0
