This comment was from Web on the post “Curves (or Lack of Curves) Don’t Make the Woman.”
See, this is why I so love this site. It takes everything I’ve been thinking and lays it out in front of me, giving me a page to link to.
I’m going to say right off the bat I have a preference towards thinner women. Does that automatically exclude everyone else? Not necessarily. But you can’t be attracted (or attractive) to everyone. And I’m sick of my preference being demonized. I mean…I’m a thin guy. Does it not make sense for me to prefer my own body type? At least it’s not hypocritical.
I think it’s a misunderstanding as well. There are major cues women pick up on to tell what kind of a guy they’re looking at: It’s why they get all hot and bothered if a surfer says “hey, sexy”, but freak out and reach for the pepper spray if a short, skinny guy gives the same gesture. But people don’t have as much a problem with this. And this is much how my own attraction works. It’s about how their physical self relates to the big picture.
