Why do Adult Men prefer BBW: All the Answers

A study from St Andrew’s University has suggested that men subjected to high levels of stress tend to find larger women more attractive than their skinnier counterparts. The research studied the stress levels of army cadets in correlation with their responses to rating a series of female faces. It concluded that plus-sized women have a greater appeal when men are faced in tough situations.

While there may be a grain of truth in there, this kind of research is also worth taking with a lorryload of salt!

The truth is that human sexuality is far more complex and more susceptible to a range of influences, and not just some single factors in our daily lives.

Beyond the obvious physical attributes of dating a BBW, there are some interesting emotional and psychological reasons why men lean towards women of a larger size. However, the bottom line is that we each tend to seek out partners as attractive as we think we are. This isn’t to say that beauty is only skin deep; the rules of attraction are dependent on much more than just our bodies.

A confident BBW who knows how to flirt and engage with a man is just as likely to register as ‘sexy’ on a man’s primal radar, as a woman who ticks all the conventional ‘beauty’ boxes dictated by society.

Things to be Aware of when Dating a BBW

For many men, dating a BBW comes with its own rewards. As a woman who have probably dealt with more than their fair share of unkind comments, it’s not uncommon to find many BBW have a fantastic sense of humour, although you may find it to be a touch ‘darker’ than usual!

Humour can be used to mask a more sensitive side, but don’t assume that a BBW is fine with mockery based on her looks or body shape. However, finding yourself in the company of a plus-sized Aphrodite can mean that there be plenty of laughs along the way.

If you enjoy eating out, a BBW is your perfect dinner date. Women of a certain size tend to be more adventurous when it comes to dining and usually aren’t afraid of trying new things. There can be little more frustrating than splashing out on an expensive meal only to watch your date picking at the salad or playing it safe and counting the calories.

Contrary to the stereotypes, BBW aren’t just content to ‘Netflix and chill’. While this is always an option, you’ll find that many larger women are equally happy to try new activities or take part in outdoor adventures. However, having the option to sit on the sofa, sharing a pizza and a movie is never a hardship.

Dating a BBW can be as fun and adventurous or as low-key and laid-back as you want it to be. The key is to establish that all-important emotional connection and take things from there, regardless of the body type.

How to Date a BBW

While many BBW are confident, funny and sexy, there are an equal amount that are introverted and who find it hard to flirt or communicate their desire. As you start out getting to know each other, there might be a few considerations you should make before you are completely comfortable in each other’s company.

  • Men are much more visually driven than women. While it might be your date’s curves that first caught your eye, don’t ask her explicitly about her lifestyle or fitness regime. If she does decide to mention anything related to her size, it should be entirely on her terms.
  • Give compliments. Everyone loves a compliment, but BBW are used to hearing negative statements about their appearance. A well-timed and thoughtful compliment can mean much more to a BBW than you may know.
  • If you do pay her compliments, though, make sure they’re genuine. A BBW will be able to spot a fake compliment a mile off!
  • Consider her feelings when going out. Although your date might appear to be supremely at ease with herself, there are situations that may make her uneasy. Unless she’s body-confident, hitting the beach or a squash-court on the first date is unlikely to be the best idea. You should rather ask her about her interests, cuisines she enjoys and places she likes to go and build from there.
  • Don’t be shy of showing affection, particularly in public. Even the smallest gesture, such as holding hands, can make a huge difference if you’re dating a BBW who isn’t particularly self-assured. While there’s no need to stick on her like an octopus, showing affection can give your date’s confidence a real boost.

Size isn’t Everything

As the songs say, ‘we like our love in different sizes’. However, it’s a biological fact that physical attractiveness, as much as you want to deny it, is the first part of attraction. Nevertheless there are enough thin single men attracted to bbw. The next part of the adventure is getting to know that person, looking beyond what has caught your attention in the first place.

There are plenty of BBW dating sites, where curve connoisseurs can engage and flirt with women whom they are drawn to. However, it’s worth remembering that the women you are engaging with are much more than just ‘big and beautiful’. Just like you, they are individuals who have real feelings, and should be treated with the respect they deserve.
