16 and scared

I'm only 16, but I'm overweight and while I still have an active dating life, I wonder wheather often times why the person is attracted to me. I do have a pretty face but I often find myself wondering if they're even attracted to me. Can you be fat and still be sexy?

Re: 16 and scared

Hunny! yes you can! I was overweight at your age too. Shoot, i just got a tad skinnier this past year. I have guys look at me all the time and I dont dress provacatively at all! I too have a *pretty face* as everyone says. If only we could lose a few pounds right? I know how you feel. There are tastes made for the masses out in the world. No 2 people like exactly the same things. Be proud of who you are and if you arent happy with something, then change it. But change it for you, not for them. Good luck!

Re: 16 and scared

I've known people who were 99 lbs and not cute at all.....and i've known women who were 350+ and absolutely gorgeous. Trust me, weight has nothing to do with it. dont question yourself. and dont question the compliments you get. I'm sure you're very a very pretty girl, and it wouldnt matter if you were 600 lbs, you'd still be. take the compliments and run with them

Re: 16 and scared

I would say that you are pretty and have a great personality- which means you are attractive to boys for who YOU ARE, which is a wonderful thing! I think its great that society, especially teenagers are seeing that there is more to a person than being a "stick". I weighed 115 (I am 5'7") throughout my early years and after having children bloomed up to 224- I still had guys flirt with me and find me attractive, even at my heaviest. I am back down to about 150 now- not the greatest, but I have no problems with men looking at me and flirting with me. Its not all about weight!

Good luck to you and accept yourself for who YOU are- that's the most important thing!

Girl I know how you feel. I am 18 and going thru a similar problem. I can't really allow myself to date though because I feel like the guys don't really like me they just think I'm easy because I'm bigger. But yes you can still be sexy no matter how big you are.

It depends on the guy to be honest with you. I dont think someover overweight is sexy, but a lot of guys like girls with something to hold on to..a LOT of guys that is.

Re: 16 and scared

Don't think that way at all. Men and women both like different traits when they are looking for a partner. Some people like skinny people, plain people, models, People with pimples, over weight people, guys liking guys/girls liking girl, and ect.

What I am trying to say is that don't worry. Once you are out of high school you will notice a whole new world. That world is reality and you will see nice people out there that dont care all about physical appearence.

Re: 16 and scared

in answer to your post, yes, you can be fat and sexy. I dated only large girls in high school and college who were anywhwhere from 220# to 450# and never thought twice on whether they were sexy. Girls having more curves really got my positive attention. So don't worry about being large--its a good thing!!! Too many women worry about stretch marks and jiggles but it also makes them alot more sexy imho. Just look on the net at all the websites on full figured women and you'll get the picture. I melt when I see a large curvy girl with large hips & thighs and rearend. Enjoy.

Thumbs up Re: 16 and scared

To chime in... I'm a guy, and I definitely prefer bigger girls! It's not the most important thing in a relationship, obviously, but for me, and lots of other guys, its a plus.
