Which isn’t necessarily bad as long as you understand that those people are attracted to you because of your weight/size and not in spite of it.
Hip to waist ratio is irrelevant when it comes to online dating.

Curvy is someone who has prominent hips and bust, and this one is more attitude than body type. IMO, athletic/toned means someone would have what I consider a "runner's body", some muscle, lean, and active. A few extra pounds is someone that most folks would consider overweight, not obese. Morbid obesitya BMI of 40 or morewas found in 2% of the men and 4% of the women.
Curvy is someone who has prominent hips and bust, and this one is more attitude than body type. The newest survey in 2007 indicates a continuation of the increase in BMI: 63% of Americans are overweight, with 26% now in the obese category (a BMI of 30 or more).
curvy/a few extra pounds are the ones that are most often abused.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...

What do you think when a woman puts "about average" versus "athletic and toned" versus "a few extra pounds" or "curvy"?
