Ronald, I hope you don't think I am picking on you, but your previous comment made reference to the fact that you are attracted to women 20 years younger than you, now you are saying that you are attracted to women that are not overweight. So are you saying that you are attracted to women 20 years younger than you AND not overweight? Does it matter if she has a pleasant personality or if she is fun to be with?

--hide--


Yes, you are right again! If she was 20 years younger, I might not be attracted to her if she was overweight even if she had a pleasant personality. On the other hand, if she was 5 years older than me and I found her sexually attractive and she didn't have a pleasant personality, I might be interested in her if I thought our personalities were compatible. I think the forum has had topics about the importance of sexually attraction in a marriage and I tend to agree with that even though I don't think that men should be taking viagra to improve their sex life.

I am not sure if what I'm saying is totally true; I usually think that overweight women have health issues and aren't as active and probably overeat. Since I would prefer someone healthy and active, I prefer someone not overweight.
Some overweight women might be sexually attractive and I usually consider everything about a woman when trying to decide to correspond with them...

TOTALLY, but respectfully, disagree with this. I am probaby heavier than women I know, but I am by far one of the healthiest. Being thin does not equate to health. In fact, many of the thinner people I know survive on snack food or fad diet practices, and are moody and irritable because they are malnutritioned. I run 5Ks ... many of them can't walk 5 blocks. I find that I would rather put the effort in to being a decent and kind person than work on a false facade just to attract attention.

Sorry I haven't read all of the comments, so I apologize if I may be repeating something already said. I'm not a guy, but I have heard married men say that the way their wives take care of their bodies, reflects the love they have for their husbands. Men feel loved when their wives put in the time and effort to look physically attractive and fit. I do believe that beauty comes from the inside as well, but some people (men & women) let themselves go after they settle down and marry. Why is that? I have seen beautiful women that were thin, and others that were curvy. For me, I try to take into consideration my overall health when it comes to my diet and exercise, whether Mr. Right is in the picture.

Certainly, self-care is part of self-love and partly for the benefit of the beloved. However, many folks have a warped idea of what "healthy" looks like and unrealistic expectations. See others' comments, above.

This comment puts me in mind of one time when my late husband complained that I wasn't "as slim" as I used to be. I pointed out that:
- I was 36 years old, not the girl of 18 that he remembered;
- I had had two children;
- I actually weighed less than I had since age 12...it was just distributed differently

I also pointed out that I could remember when he wasn't bald.

This kind of discussion never surfaced again. wink

I believe that online dating CAN work but is very difficult. I have said many times that it is impossible to ascertain the beauty of an woman or the gentleness of a man by a photo and what they choose to write in their "profile". I have not met many people from online dating...but a few. They didn't look like their pictures and they didn't act like their profile. I find it all very interesting. I like to have intellectual conversations and I read more than I write. In person, one can generally tell if a person is happy, content and has a true love of God in their soul or if they are stressed, depressed and perhaps still trying to find their way. A person, no matter what their size and age, is definitely more attractive when they are happy individuals with whatever their current life is about. I am a cradle Catholic who left the church and returned 6 months ago. I have learned more about my Catholic faith in the last 6 months that I did in the 20 years of going to church with my family. I am more excited about it and know that God is not only with me but has my back. I have been trying (sucessfully) to become involved in parish and meet other Catholics. Why am I here? I originally joined because I wanted to be around other Catholics and learn and grow. I can say that I have thanks to the many insightful and intellectual conversations on the site. God Bless All!!!! two cents

I will also add that I prefer physically fit men, just because I hope to share an active lifestyle with my future husband. I also hope to avoid arguing with him (lol) about what foods we will keep in our home, and what eating habits we want to pass down to our children.

Some where I read above that women have "Baby Fat" from having children. My daughter just had number 10 in November and you would not even think she had had 5. It is a matter of the right nutrition and pound melting foods.
If you drink Soda don't drink the so called "Diet" stuff. People that drink the diet drinks gain an average 18 pounds more per year than those drinking non diet drinks. The diet drinks break down chemically above 85 degrees. That is why you never see diet soda out in front of the store or gas station(next time take a look when at the gas station). Do you remember the frog in biology class and the formaldehyde ? One of the chemicals when aspartame breaks down is Formeldahyde and your body is at 96.5. Initially aspartame was developed as an ant killer yet millions of people poison themselves daily with the stuff in diet drinks.
Do some reading about fat burning foods which will melt away those pounds over time. Below is one of many episodes of DR. OZ showing some foods or spices that will help increase metabolism and burn calories without a major change to your diet.

I have lost 10 Lbs recently and have at least 20 more to go. I am know there are people out there wanting to loose weight but have a problem doing it. I hope this posting will help some and not be looked at as being judgmental, but something that may help you in your quest to loose weight and perhaps find a mate.
