Do you feel attractive Pedro?

Self-confidence and the way one presents oneself to the world can tend to shine through and override a little excess poundage conversing

Personally I find men who take care of themselves most appealing; it shows they respect themselves and are more likely to be energetic and healthy wine

Personally, I think if they can put one fat man on the moon, then why cant they put all the rest there too?

Unfortunately I see "athletic" body type on the profile and after some conversation I hear they used to be ripped when they were in college. Now they forgot the way to the gym and they don't have time for salads.
And then there are those that pump their arms and chest to be proportional with their big belies. I keep saying round is not a shape. If only people listened. laugh

Obesity is not laughing matter not only is it unattractive but it's dangerous to one's heath too in some countries being fat is attractive when i see a woman who is fat it tells me she does not care for herself obviously

Some cultures worship fatness.

In the small South Pacific island of Tonga, beauty is marked by large physical size. This coupled with a reliance on fatty, nutrient-deficient imported foods and a decrease in activity has caused the nation to embrace obesity.

About 100,000 of the island’s 114,000 adult inhabitants are overweight. According to several studies released in 2004 by the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, Tongans are genetically predisposed to be fat.

The predilection toward feminine obesity also appears to be rooted in heredity and custom.

Middle Eastern Kuwait is not only home to rich oil deposits in the land but some in its people. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and 52% of Kuwaiti women over 15 are obese.

Historically, these nomadic desert people came to prize fatness as a sign of health and wealth–a trend which clearly continues to this day. In a country where women exercising is a taboo, wives are frequently prized as decorative items to fill up the house: the bigger, the more opulent.

Yes there is a predisposition to being fat for a lot of Pacific Islander countries, as there is for most indigenous folks in the region. These populations as a general rule, dont posses the qualities that would make them physically attractive to people of a European background. Its most likely a 2-way street and we are not what they'd find attractive either.

I'm sure they would. That would save a whole lot of heartache for everybody.

As its leaders strove to connect the once-isolated island with the rest of the world, Fiji unwittingly introduced new calorie-dense food into its diet.

This South Pacific nation’s customs revolve around the giving of food as a sign of prosperity. This, coupled with insufficient education about health risks, has left the vast majority of Fiji overweight. Not only are they fat, they are happy.

Girth has long been revered in a woman as a sign of health, wealth and fertility.

With nearly 65% of Jamaican females classified as obese, the ideal beach body is nearly twice its medically-appropriate size. In this island nation particular emphasis is placed on generous hips and hindquarters, a condition known as steatopygia.

A 1993 study conducted in rural Jamaica associated thinness with sadness but heaviness with happiness, kindness and social harmony. There is also a burgeoning pill market which caters to young women desiring to gain weight.

all depends on your base line.

so 6 is fat

for men it is harder, i go for nr 4 is getting fat.

nobody looked at homer simpsons and desired him in bed.
unless you have a softspot for that.
But on the other side a lot of women would have been jumping to be Mr Burns girlfriend :-)

My opinion I think we are animals
If you can put your weight in the scale, and win-win-win with it, then women will fall.
