So I have recently noticed a common issue among men, especially Catholic men. Is it just me or are Catholic men especially picky when it comes to the "size" of the women they date? I have many different size Catholic friends and it seems that the only Catholic women that are single are the ones with a little more to love. I also know many single Catholic men (friends) and they have admitted to me that they are on the lookout for only thin women. Thoughts?

Gayle, the right man for you will love you for who you are, completely, regardless of your size, dont have any doubt about it because it is the truth!!!. I also would like to have more weight, I am far too skinny and I struggle with that, I lost LOADS of weight last year due to stress...but I know I have much more to offer than my size. I think it is about feeling healthy!!! theheart

I've noticed something, and its probably a gross generalisation.

As you've said, Catholic women who are chunky tend to be single, whereas the skinny ones are usually okay; I've noticed the same trend.

Something I've noticed amongst my secular/non-christian and even Protestant friends, is the chunky ones are willing to dress provocatively and are more willing to fornicate and commit sexual sins outside of marriage.In fact, some of the most nasty "tramps" I know, are really large.

That's not saying skinny Catholic women are putting out, but I've noticed that larger secular women seem to objectify themselves.

The question is then, are men willing to accept a larger size if it means they get sex? If yes, perhaps thats why Catholic women who are larger generally don't get too much attention, dressing modesty, respecting our bodies, saying no to fornication. Why would a man put up with that and have the "shame" of having a whale on his arm? Whereas at least with a good practicing Catholic skinny lady on his arm, at least he gets that social nod of approval.

Its just a thought.

Anyway, my flab, it's my nuclear survival kit, so while all those skinny wenches are digging up root vegetables, I'll be sitting pretty. ^_^

Every man has their own attractions; some like tall women, some like short; some like bigger women some like think women. I personally prefer physically fit women.

Sweetie, I can't speak to your location, but I've been kind of noticing over the last couple of years that there are a lot of guys out there who like big, beautiful women. They've told me so. No matter what size we are, what is wrong with looking the best we can look? Just wondering.

I've been on a lot of dating sites, and I will say quite frankly that on the two Catholic dating sites I've been on, I've had more guys openly reject me because of my weight. Again, this is a gross generalization, but the impression I get is that they feel that because they're such good Catholic "catches," they "deserve" Catholic Malibu Barbie.

Just my experience. Whatever. I know plenty of guys who find me attractive, so I try not to let it get to me. I'll find someone who loves me for me.

I find it hard to believe that it's especially Catholic Men over non Catholic Men.

Don't know about the dating sites...just saying IRL I've had several men tell me, and those are the women they are dating...that they like big girls.

My experience has been the opposite. I haven't met many guys who want skinny girls, and I have many girlfriends of all shapes and sizes who are single. Pesonal attraction is unique to that particular individual. I, personally, don't go for obese guys because for me the physical ability and well being of a family leader is a necessary factor of the success of family life.
