Would a guy that runs and plays softball...

...be interested in a girl that exercises but is overweight? This guy is in decent shape...plays softball and has participated in 5K's. I, on the other hand, am short, walk for exercise, but I'm about 60 pounds overweight. I've got a personality that will knock his socks off though...lol. I'm normally very confident, but this is bugging me.

  • why do you ask? is he a friend of a friend or someone you met online? different guys like different things so its quite possible

  • My SO is active duty military in excellent shape. I'm overweight but he still seems to like me for me and never mentions my weight.

  • I dont see why he wouldnt. But honestly, do you want to be with a man who doesnt like you just because your over weight? do you want to be with someone that shallow? give him a chance, show him your best, and if he doesnt want you because your overweight than he isnt worth your time. Good Luck!

  • Actually, personality is more important now then it used to be, I think. And, if he IS put off by your weight right off, then he is NOT worth your time. But don't worry about it. Go out, have fun!
