I'm not obese but I've got a little extra. Plump. In the past, I dated men who always wanted very thin women. I've never been thin. I know I've got problems with compulsive eating and I'm still trying to lose weight. It's all in my head. I thought recently though that maybe when the time is right, I should look for someone who likes women with a little extra? Why make my life harder by continuing to seek out men who don't hold my looks as ideal. There are men who enjoy a larger build on women. This changes what I look for in a guy when I give this further thought. I don't have a very hardwired preference for athletic men. If a guy is athletic, great, if he is husky or large, it's all good. I won't pretend to go for looks, but I base attraction more on the guy's face and build rather than size. Oh and hair. I'm a sucker for nice hair. What's your type? Would you consider dating someone who goes specifically for your type of look rather than trying to change yourself to conform?
