My humble opinion ---I don't care if a guy isn't in to me due to my weight. We ALL have our likes and dislikes. Like some of the gals on here I tend to like a guy taller than me, bigger size (I too tried to date a skinny guy, just couldn't handle it). That doesn't mean a shorter guy or skinny guy can just call me shallow and hate me. Its MY preference. There is preferences then there is down right rudeness. I just have come to realization I do not like all types of men so why should they like me. I am not settling either, I want the total package for "me" personality and looks.
I couldn't have said it better myself. I've been attracted to men with all body-types, but the bottom line is I like what I like (VERY tall and VERY big), therefore I can't fault any man for not being attracted to me. However, we don't have to be mean about it, do we?
i THINK ALOT OF MEN OVER RATE BBW!! I AM A BBW AND I WAS IN A 16 YEAR REALTIONSHIP AND HAVE 2 CHILDREN, I THINK SOME MEN THINK OF US AS PUSHOVERS WE HAVE TO TAKE WHAT WE CAN GET , WELL I WISH THERE WHERE MORE MEN IN MY AREA THAT ENJOYED A BBW BECAUSE I HAVEN'T SEEN OR MET ANY ... SO COME THIS WAY
I knew I was a bbw when at camp one year, I was 12 years old and we were playing a game where we put everyone's jeans on one person, and my jeans were the last to go on, and there was still room for a melon in there.
I guess if you have to shop in women's plus sizes, and can't wear a size 18, you're a bbw. I am told I don't look like a bbw by some men, so I guess bbw is in the eye of the beholder.
I prefer the term "pleasingly Plump" Thank you very much !

MORE WEIGHT, i like country music
True that. A line from my favorite song goes like this ?I?m going to keep on chasing that dream though I may never find it, I?m always just behind it?. I live by that. I was told I would never be allowed to go anywhere in life because people would always judge me by my weight. I would never be successful, never have a man, etc... I have done everything and have accomplished almost everything my family told me I would never do. I am an architect, I have worked for some of the best companies in Chicago, I have my own business, and I date very successful men on a regular basis. All I have left to do is get my license and I will be complete. I have less than 1 year to qualify. What is important is to be happy with who and what you are and to run the race with perseverance.
A BBW is to me a woman between 4'8" to 5'7" and from 250 to 600+. She is full, soft, always beautiful to the eye, and a joy to the heart as well as the soul. She will love herself despite how the world views her and will love and treat her man with the same love and courtesy that he gives her. That is, if he is a real man. He would not be ashamed of her or mistreat her.
Just in response to the BBW modeling sizes.......I was truly amazed when my daughter went to modeling school and they told her that anyone over a size 6 was considered a BBW.......she was 5'9 and a perfect size 7 at the time and they recommended she either lose wt or go for the BBW modeling.......
To me tho the BBW stands for
B=Big....any size woman that feels she is bigger than the so called norm.
B=Beautiful......this can be the beauty inside and outside, the beautiful physical appearance, the beautiful personality, feelings, love, understanding, caring......all those things of beauty that each and every woman can be........
just my opinion anyway........so to me the BW just means bigger woman and the middle B really says it all because we are all beautiful in our own way .....
....and I have to thank everyone here for "me" being able to say that because I have never felt that BBW described me at all because of the middle B...... I have always had low self esteem even tho I know I am a good person and worthy of love but have never ever considered myself beautiful in any form of the word.........this has been a true learning experience for me and I will continue to read this board and learn and grow from each of u and again "Thank u"...........me
I find this an interesting question especially relative to the online dating world. When I did plus size modeling back in the day, no one ranted and raved about BBWs. Now, online, if you say you are a BBW, there are many men (try putting an ad on Craigslist for example) who write saying all BBWs can never beautiful, blah blah blah.
Actually, I was told recently to call myself an EVW instead of BBW. What is that?
The people on this topic are really nice and maybe a little delusional ( kidding ) I'm not being funny but we all know what is fat. If you can't put your selt belt on without an extender.. You are fat. If you can't go on the ride with someone next to you, you are fat. If you need to think twice about sitting in a chair that folds, you are fat. I am saying this because it's reality. We weren't all meant to be the same size. If people need to justify there size are you really comfortable with you are and do we care what " they " think?
Just a glance at the profiles in this part of the thread reveals an incredible variety of physical builds. All are interesting but for me the classic BBW physique is rounded ample and voluptuous. My personal preference. This van include but is not necessarile a big up front physique. I love wide hips thighs and big rear ends. There is more to human attraction than that but, in keeping with the topic I wanted to keep it physical...LOL.

It's bad when it comes from a man but trying having it said to you from your family. The day I graduated from College with an AAS in Multimedia Specialty, AAS in General Studies, and a Certificate in Multimedia - Instead of telling me that he loved me and that he was proud of me, my dad told me that I was so fat that I was going to die of a heart attack (2 weeks later, he had a minor heart attack).
I have lived like that. I have heard that bullstuff all my life. I was in kindergarden and my family used to call me fat. Then again around 5th grade my dad told me I was getting fat. Then puberty.. oh my gosh! Then highschool, you're fat. Then since school, I have heard not ever a kind word from my parents, its always I'm not good enough and I'm too fat!
I looked back at pictures and you know what? I wasnt near fat in kindergarden, nor in 5th grade or highschool. I dont know why they would say that to me, but they always did.
I want a man who likes his women like he likes his big mac meals... SUPER SIZED!!! That would be me....
Of course I get the typical.. YOU DONT LOOK FAT... well I am 6'2''.... there is a LOT of body to spread that weight around.... LOL
