I have to say, it depends on the man. I dated a man when I was 35 lbs lighter... that thought I was fat. Today, I am losing weight for myself, but my BF keeps telling me I look great! and make sure I start doing squats if I lose more weight because he doesn't want my butt any smaller. LOL

well im a bigger girl, and i still get compliments on my rear, lol. But i feel its too big, and i need to lose allot of weight still and firm it up more...
Age and stress and kids and ex's.... my body dang sure not what it used to be.
But of course feels good to get a compliment from time to time.
I think all women are insecure about there looks to some degree or other..i know i am.
But i also know i need to learn to love my body the way it is..and not expect to look like others who may be in better shape etc.
Of course i would feel sexier and have a better self esteem if i lost some weight and felt healthier. And that is something i need to start working on, one day at a time.
anyways just wanted to say, nothing wrong with having curves! and my nic name in high school was bubblebut! lol... and back then i thought i was huge and fat! and i weighed 125 lbs! lmao!!! god was i crazy! wish i was fat like that now! LOL
current weight: 233.0

Just caught this.. don't different men have different body parts they find attractive and it seems that the general ADVERTISED concensus is that most men prefer boobs (and the larger the better). I'm finding a few butt men, and those that say they are butt men, but when you mention boobs, their attention definitely sways. So therefore, since there are fewer butt men, I guess women are predisposed to make sure to get rid of the butt. Personally I try to make mine as uh hum attractive as possible because... I ain't got no boobs.
5'7 and size 8 to 10 is that acceptable?

You may like well endowed butts, but I would like to know what size pants those butts fit in?!? Are we talking well endowed model butt or average woman butt? From a woman's point of view I got to know!
So, you attend a fashion show where there "HOT MODELS" everywhere,........and the BIG, MASCULINE, HUNKY men are,....are,....are no where to be found. Just the flaming fashionable men's are around. Why? Cause real men don't like waif skinny models.
The only skinny celebrity I like is J-Lo and there ain't NUTTIN skinny there! w00t!
USING SP TO HELP YOU KEEP TRACK OF WEIGHT LOSs, CALORIE INTAKE AND EXERCISE "IS" THE SHORTCUT!!!!!! sTOP TRYING TO CONSUME A MAGIC WEIGHTLOSS PILL, OY!
I absolutely agree with LCORTEZ. We think that men want women who look like Victorias Secret models. That means super skinny. A big butt = fat, and fat = unattractive. As to why we tend to pick on our behinds more than any body part, I don't know. Maybe because we can't really get an accurate view of what we look like from behind? I am super self conscious of my butt. I am one of those women who, no matter how much weight I lose, has an ample behind.
