why do they always seem attracted to me? Case in point: I'm at the gym working out. Now I'm not big, buff or anything like that. I'm lean, cut, athletic and healthy but put me beside, let's say ddouble, and well, just give me the details in the morning is all I ask. lol...but back to my story...

I'm on the lat pulldown machine, minding my own business and grinding it out, when this..*ahem* very...uummmm.....well a whhooollllleeee lotta woman sat down on the bench beside me and asked why I was there by myself.
Now I can feel all eyes on me from everybody working out. I was polite and cordial but I let her know I was there to just work out. Now I feel uncomfortable and leave afterwards. But this incident is part of a trend I've noticed for years now....guys like me attract women a little on the big side. Nothing wrong with it, but I would like to know why this is. Just curious.....

I think the big girls ... excuse me ... women ... are just more aggressive.

In my own experience, among black women the ones who show the strongest interest are larger women and older women.

Why is that????

I would've thought it was because opposites attract. Im a size 6, so im attracted to men like ddouble or someone much larger than myself. (not saying i wouldnt look at Gambit Big Grin).

Gambit..are you not attracted to a thick sista?

Same here. I find it interesting because of the percieved notions (from music, media and other outlets) we have about women who are considered "it" and those who are "not"..how the "it" are supposed to be confident and aggressive and such...

I believe the "opposites attract" theory might play a part in it..but it seems to be disproportionate *in my opinion* to the greater whole of viewable society. *shrugging*

I love thick sistas..but thick has different definitons to different people.

i have experienced the same thing older and larger women. I think they understand that they may not be the 'first pick in the draft', yet would like to get into the game.

I know several men that complain about aggressive women. They complain that a lot of women dont know when to turn that aggression off, and it becomes a control issue.

Also i think there are other ways, to let a man know that im interested. I'll smile, etc....and if he doesnt get the clue, then ohhh well. Frown


So non aggressivness is/can be used as a sorta preventative/protective measure? I can see and understand that.....

Kinda backs up RadioRaheems theory a little bit when I think about it....
lol, I couldnt help but laugh at this topic, !!

Big women like smaller men cause the sex is easier, two fat people trying to make love, oooh wee, lol, but it does seem big women come on strong, the little women think they are too cute and prissy ,the big blocks dont mind getting down and dirty. I got a friend all he looks for is a big woman, he says he knows he gonna eat good lol

She told you ... Smile
I didnt mean to offend anyone sweetheart, im sorry if you took it that way, it was kind of a joke. But anyway, ive had a few, lets say volumptuous women in my life, and they sex was pretty good. Me im only 5'10 210 im muscular but i feel what you saying i think the big men fit good with volumtuous women, im no hater. You have to bring your lunch box for the BBW's and if your back isnt strong she may break you, lol,.Just like in boxing , you have to stay in your weight class.

I would love to get some of the ladies take on this and have they noticed this or not as well.


It may be beacuse we always have to "defend" ourselves for just being the voluptous women we are. We have to defend why we are big, deal with the stares, and labels, the put downs from family, and classmates, and abuse from other women and men. So like the movie "Phat Girlz" you develop a thick skin and a fiesty attitude.

Now I'm not gonna knock you out like "Mo'Nique" did but if you say something stupid about big women in my presence I will step to you intelligently but assertively.

Regarding men, I've learned to be chased, not the one chasing. Men still like to feel like they are in control, so they want to come after you. Many big girls feel like if they don't go after the guy they won't get one. And that is an self esteem issue. But it really does work when you let yourself shine, and are in the right place. In the regular club scene dudes are not "looking" for a big girl, so you will be sooo bored. But go to a BBW event it is a totally different story. So you have to be active and involve yourself in stuff. I do know what its like to feel like you are invisible. But since I moved its like a whole new world. cabbage

I'm glad to see Amokess use the word assertive, as I'd like the menfolk to define what they mean by agressive?

In my mind, being upfront (but friendly) in manner about approaching someone is assertive. Being dominating and controlling is being agressive and implies a negative meaning.

I'm not nitpicking, just curious about the men's use of the term.

I was using "agressive" in your sense of the word "assertive" ... speaking for myself, I meant nothing negative by the term ...
19 just curious how easily those two words seem to be transposed, when they have quite different meanings. And usually by men, which makes me wonder if men see assertiveness and agression in women as the same thing. And if so, do they morph (in men's minds) into meaning upfront or confrontational? Postive or negative or... you haven't really ever thought about it? lol Maybe the difference between those two words are more important to women? Maybe not? All input is welcome. Smile

THIS IS GOING TO BE A BOXING MATCH BETWEEN ME AND YOU, I SEE THAT RIGHT NOW. DEAR ZAKAR, I JUST REMEMBERED I DID HAVE A SMALL BOYFRIEND IN MY LIFE---AND HE DIDNT WANT TO GO TO WEIGHT CLASS AT ALL! THAT MAN WAS TRIPPING SAYING HE LOVED ME, AFTER WE HAD SEX THE FIRST TIME. yOU SAID LARGER WOMEN ARE MORE AGGRESSIVE, AND I WILL SAY SMALLER MEN, WITH A BIGGER WOMAN TEND TO FALL FIRST. IMO, TO NOT BRING THE SMALLER MEN DOWN OR ANYTHING, GIVE ME A MAN 200t POUNDS ANYDAY! MY AUNT IS 380 LBS, AND HER HUSBAND HAVE TO BE ABOUT 180-190LBS. AND HIS BACK WAS FINE TO HAVE FIVE CHILDREN, AND STAY MARRIED FOR 22 YEARS. SHE ALWAYS KEEP A SMILE ON HIS FACE.

LET'S JUST PUT IT THIS WAY:

"MORE CUSHION FOR THE PUSHIN"

THIS WILL BE THE END TO THIS CLASS SESSION

DONNA-2 ZAKAR-0

NEXT! Big Grin

The truth is ...larger women and older women probably do not get approached as often as thinner women and younger women. Therefore, at some point, in order to compete, bigger women have to be more assertive.

I do know that my mom gets approached all the time.....and its hilarious to see the look on my fathers face. lol (his eyes get red..lol)

But yes, i think men look for a 'friendly' face.......when approaching women........the age or weight sometimes doesnt matter.
