Dating men like overweight women

Sure, dating a skinny chick may seem like something to brag about – but both you and I know that REAL relationships need more than plain vital stats. 😉 Today, I will answer the big, fat ‘WHY’ about dating fat girls.

Not because this is my written plea for dates (I am happily dating a man who tells me I am fat beautiful, and loves all the inches spilling my outsides), but because some of you might be making my fellow sisters struggle with the same sort of body image issues I had in the beginning. Goodbye calorie counting Whether you are eyeing the pot roast or want a draft beer, we aren’t counting calories – not even yours.

This myth is something we see play out throughout the various facets of American culture, whether it’s movies or politics or pop culture.About a month ago, one of my sisters tagged me in a video she recorded of Family Feud—a game show where two families compete for a cash prize by trying to find the most popular answers to a variety of questions.On the episode of the daytime game show she recorded, host and comedian Steve Harvey asks the contestants to answer a rather loaded statement: “Name a reason a woman might decide to be with a chubby [or fat] man.” This, as one might imagine, ends up being a rather humorous round for the contestants, Steve Harvey, and the audience.As men tend to have greater status in society than women, they can trade this for more attractive mates.” Yes, women have (somewhat) closed the money-and-power gap with men, but stereotypes are tough to dislodge, and they “still significantly impact our perceptions of others,” Harman said.Men are still “perceived to be more agentic, assertive, dominant, and women more dependent, emotional,etc.” There’s an ingrained assumption, then, that men have stuff to “trade,” but women don’t, and this assumption is part of the reason it’s still seen as weird when an unattractive woman dates an attractive man — what could she possibly be trading?
