Elaine's article about why she is not dating overweight men has received a lot of attention. Curt submitted a comment that was too good to be just added to the long list of replies. I hereby present, 10 reasons to date a fat guy:
1. You'll never go hungry cause they are mostly good cooks (and if you think you'll be fat for dating him then you are the one with a self control problem).
2. More shade in the hot sun, keep you dry in the rain etc.
3. Fat guys are jolly (that means no stuck up attitude).
4. More places to put cold feet at night or keep warm in general (if you feel crowed in bed with him, buy a bigger bed).
5. Less likely to fight with other guys simply because of size factor.
6. You can outrun them if they try to be abusive (but usually aren't).
7. Fat guys are content with themselves and do not try to live up to social stigmas (therefore less inner mess than skinny people).
8. People do not look at fat people and run like they've seen a monster no matter how you might feel personally.
9. Fat guys are less likely to drown and hence will be natural life savers for you if on a sinking ship.
10. The harder you bounce the deeper it goes. (should be self explanatory for those women who like it on top).
