Well, two male co-workers were talking about online dating and mentioned that they’d never contact a girl that was in that class or “curvy”, because any time they’d met one in the past, she’d been much heavier than in her pictures.I’m wondering if this is why guys will view me a lot, but won’t make contact.If you give up trying to answer and put “Prefer Not To Say”, like some sites allow, then you may not end up in any searches at all.Most men put “Slender, Athletic and Toned, About Average” as their preference, at least on where you can see their choices. Athletic and Toned Body Type Maybe this choice is meant for men only, but I see a lot of men selecting it as the type that they prefer in women. Does it mean masculine or high testosterone; square chin, low eyebrows, low voice, V shape, low fat percent, and narrow hips?Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Let’s start with you, because a) you wrote me the note, and b) you’re an online dating anomaly – an honest size 10 who doesn’t claim to be athletic and toned.
Have you ever tried to define your body type for an online dating site? However, my biggest quarrel with dating sites is their use of body type to categorize women.
Whereas someone else might look at the same person and describe them as skinny or thin. You will never get a unanimous agreement as to what each category means.
Many don't consider athletic to be a body type at all but more so a reflection of exercise habits and fitness level.
Women are accused of “lying” about their body type (as well as lying about their age; for men it is height and income) up to 80% of the time, but how can you lie about something if you don’t even know the answer to the question?
The dating sites don’t even help you with guidelines as to what the different categories mean so you can be consistent.
Some look for a few more types, some all types and some only one or two types! Men tend to have very specific body types in mind and they get attracted to the physical aspect of a woman first rather than the mental aspect of a mate like women do. Like the woman trainer from Biggest Loser, Jillian?
