Are men really not attracted to overweight women? Need some encouragement PLEASE!!!

I will be single soon (after 7 years of marriage and two children), but I am about 50-60 pounds overweight. Please tell me someone will find me attractive. I know it doesn't sound like it from this post, but I am fairly confident in myself.

Just not looking forward to being lonely.

  • Lookes are subjective and beauty is REALLY in the eye of the beholder. so there is a man out there who will love and adore you for who you are i'm sure. So no worries. So be confident and remember your sexy and they will see that in droves!!

  • Yes they will. My dh loves me no matter how much I weight.

  • I honestly think that a guy wrote this. Women do not put their esteem in their weight with men show will or won't look at them. I am not interested in what a man would think of me at all. Never was. I see the way they are when women do their best, confindently, or not, and they could care less of us, (more so ) if we're better looking, as in don't even believe they aren't just in your business for your looks, because it IS for that. If you lack self confidence it's because this isn't written by a woman. No woman would come on here and say this. They would just believe that they aren't interested in such a world only going to see

  • I know lots of men that prefer their women with some meat... I on the other hand, I prefer my women thin... My DH isn't really someone that cares about weight in either direction as long as you're not grossly over or under weight, he's cool.

  • women have such fragile self esteems and I will assume that your ex left you because of your weight....since I dont know the whole story.I'm sure you can find somebody who will love you for who you are......but you need to love your self first, dont get so caught up with the fact that you are alone that you will allow someone to belittle you....

  • I see alot of attractive men with beautiful full figured women. U have to have great self esteem and self confidence and others will notice that,they will be drawn to it.

  • A lot of men want curvey women. My husband complains that I don't have any meat on my bones and that I am not soft and cuddly. He would like me to gain about 15 pounds. I am not able to, I wish I could. You are probably an extremely attractive woman and as long as you have self confidence and love yourself, there are men out there that will flock to you and treat you like a princess.

  • My hubby would much rather a "real woman" than a twig.
