(quote) Trish-977181 said: Some of my best relationships were with guys who were "chubby". It wasn't something I was looking for but it turned out that way. When you find real love, you don't see fat/thin - ugly/handsome. You see their heart with yours and it's wonderful! Besides they were very cuddly and great huggers!
I had a date from a man from this site who considered himself obsese. we met at Fridays for dinner one evening then all through the dinner he kept talking about his weight issues. When I left, I felt like he had emotional issues that stemmed from his weight. I reassured him that weight wasn't an issue with me. He invited me to his singles group at his parish but I was never able to make it. I'd see him online here where we'd talk by email but I never saw him in person again. I really liked him, thought he was a very nice and polite man.
I had another date from a man on this site after that. He was a big guy which didn't bother me in the least. Both of my brothers are big men so that's probably the reason I feel this way. we dated for almost a year.
now you've got me thinking about the big men I've dated. On other sites I've met men who also were big guys. Everyone must feel comfortable in their own bodies to feel good about themselves. that's the way I look at it.
when I was married, long ago, I was 19 and thin. I loved to make pecan pies. My husband was also thin and decided one day that he wasn't going to let me eat any of the pie I had made. whoa, I didn't like that. He was so mean. you know what I did? threw the entire thing in the garbage. was I mean, heck no. he turned around and made another one right then and there and then told me to enjoy my piece of pie. LOL
He wanted me to stay thin and not gain an ounce. I was always thin throughout my marriage. At age 45 was when my body started changing...as all the women out there know what I'm referring to. ugh! good thing we have Dr. Oz to keep us on track!!
