    I was reading a post on this site http://hatemyjobsfm.blogspot.com Its a site where people send in stories about why they hate their job so fucking much. There was one post that I found rather rude about a girl who worked at a clothing store. I assume its a well known fashion designer but who knows. she was pissed that a larger girl came into a store and felt that she shouldnt even bother wasting her time because the clothes would not fit her. It made me think. So whats your opinion on people being overweight? Do you think its ugly? unattractive

    I think that whatever size makes you happy is what you should be AS LONG AS YOU ARE HEALTHY AND EAT RIGHT AND EXCERCISE.

    But if you met a guy who was attracted to you and was overweight and comfortable in his own skin. Would you let him pursue you?

    Hey Lager, welcome to RJ... we'll get you atuned in no time!

    Your question has too many variables for me to really answer. When you say overweight, do you mean, he's a little chunky or thick... or do you mean way overweight?

    And what do you mean by pursue you? LIke a stalker? LOL
    I assume you mean, "would you be comfortable with him having an interest in you"?


    With me, I have a bf so its an easy answer if someone is "pursuing me", whether I like them or not. Its a non offending answer. If I were single and he was a large dude, it may or may not bother me... depends on his lifestyle. If he's a fatty and he's promoting it, I doubt if I'd be the least bit interested.

    Tried the "its not what's on the outside but what's on the inside" approach a few times with guys who were seriously overweight.

    Great guys, but my pecker didn't respond.

    Not looking for perfection or anything close to it. But seriously, I can't get excited about a guy who looks like my dad.

    Oh, bloody HELL no! I work out too much and too often to even notice fat people. (I'll save you the trouble, yes believe it or not I work out even though it doesn't look it. Happy haters?)
    If my very muscular partner of 11 years, suddenly decided to become some fat lazy sod and not work out? We would have some issues.

    The OP wrote, " I think that whatever size makes you happy is what you should be AS LONG AS YOU ARE HEALTHY AND EAT RIGHT AND EXCERCISE...."

    If they are healthy, and ate right and exercised, then they wouldn't be fat.
    Bloody awful.

    Cheers,
    Keith

    Ok...

    I'm am not try to sound like a fattist (is that a word?), but I have worked for a designer stockist (a store that sold Versace, Diesel, Iceberg, et cetera) before. Most high fashion designer clothing comes in generally small sizes in comparison to say what you buy at a regular department store. Women's designer clothes do not come in plus sizes, so I can kinda get what the woman on that blog may have been talking about.

    I've personally been treated as though it was my duty in life to wait on heavy women hand and foot all the while knowing full well nothing in the store would fit them (which means it is a waste of your time since you aren't going to be selling her anything in the end ergo no commission). Usually you just brush it off. It comes with the territory, but if you're having a particularly bad day I can see how one would complain about it online.

    And to answer the OP question, "no."

    Silly man, I think the response you are gonna gert on this site is 99% NO.

    My maternal relatives are mostly on the heavy side. My paternal relatives are the opposite. I take after my father. Thank god. It's one of the preference things. I don't prefer (i may even say dislike) heavy people. This should have a psychological reason such as I grew up mostly with my heavy relatives who mocked me as skinny but were constantly dieting to shed weight they where unhappy with all the while stuffing there upper orefice.

    I don't care about bodies personally......

    my boyfriend is pretty overweight, was overweight when I met him too. I don't know, maybe I'm a cyclops or somethin, but other things can do it for me other than the body, depends on the person.


    overweight in general, whether one thinks it's ugly or unattractive . . . my only concern for anyone is the health factor.

    I try to be an agreeable person, but I just can't let this comment go. I'm sorry you feel that working out makes you so superior to people with a little extra weight that you can't give an overweight guy the time of day. It's one thing to not have an attraction, but to not even notice somebody? It really doesn't seem classy to me.

    all depends on the person - some people have other attributes that more than compensate for a few extra pounds and are indeed even sexier than a man with lower body fat - personality, attitude, intelligence, humor, kind heart, etc.

    I was thinking of putting a bumper sticker on my car that says

    YOU'RE FAT!
    Because you eat too much

    But I think a better one would be:

    EAT LESS, MOVE MORE

    Classy or not. It's not all about attraction though either. It says something about a person who hits the gym day in and day out. Not everyone does it for looks. I do, but not everyone does. We as men have these great bodies that WE ourselves can transform and become healthy, strong and muscular. Those that physically can work out and choose not too, are fat useless wastes of a skin sack in my opinion. I have no bloody time for someone like that.
    Don't like the comment? Too bad. (Stand in line.)

    And so it begins........
    First of all, I don't frequent gay clubs nor am I a queen, nor do I even speak with queens.

    I just looked at your profile. You obviously work out in some way. Are YOU attracted to fat people? I don't think so. If you bothered to read my other post, (Wait you do/can read correct?), you would have seen that I said my disdain of fat people is not due to attraction only.

    Obesity kills.

    Obesity is the result of long-term, ongoing, self-destructive, bad behavior. It's certainly not the sort of person I want in my inner circle.

    When I see a fat ass, I really don't think ugly or cute. I think beyond that at a person who lacks discipline and will to control their bad behavior. It's just not the sort of person I want to hang out with. I set higher standards for myself and others that I choose to call friends.

    I don't associate with smokers, either, for the very same reasons.

    I have found a few guys that are somewhat overweight and i had huge crushes on them,but they were straight. It depends on how a guy carries himself.

    Lord Ffuffington doesn't have to be classy, he's an aristocrat. Ask him, he'll tell you all about it. And tell you. And tell you.

    You could read any of a thousand threads on here where a select few (you should know who they are by now) take every opportunity when they see the word 'fat' to rail against and vilify people they do not know, and won't ever know because they're too busy masturbating to their own images to bother.

    It is possible to be a REAL man and voice a preference without demonizing or denegrating anyone for their BMI, but sadly, muscles and low body fat do not a real man make.

    your post doesn't even make sense--as long as you are healthy, eat right and exercise uhhhhhh then you wouldn't be overweight-- i think being overweight just represents lethargic, laziness I mean im pretty fucking lazy but I still manage to be in somewhat decent shape..so to answer you question that doesn't make sense--no
