    many men leave Barbie because they played enough. Don't say her looks is a basic thing. How many men want to help a girl to look her best? They r so lazy. If a real gentleman wants educated nice genuine girl he'll write to me!

    Men are visual creatures and looks are a real plus.  However, looks will only take you so far.  I have dated women who were beautiful outside and quite ugly inside.  An interesting study by Vincent Egan and Cara McCorkindale found that vanity was significantly correlated with narcissism in a study of women.  In other words, if a woman considers herself beautiful to the point of being vain, she is more likely to also become a narcissist. Here's the dictionary definition of narcissism:  "Extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration."

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But I have to say the personality is much prettier than any looks. What guy does not want a hot babe? But that may not necessarily be what they settled down with. They may settle down with someone who has radiant inner beauty that shines on the outside.

    sometimes the size of a woman isn't important but then why women without enlarged boobs and mile-long legs are at home alone????
    Did you hear man tells a friend "check out crains on that girl?
    Shame on who ever pressure women to work hard on changing body parts and stuff...

    My last several dates have been slender but less attractive than I am use to. As I get older attractiveness becomes less important. Her substance matters more. If a woman can show these things to a man all men would be happier in a relationship.
    Valuing him
    supporting him
    appreciating him
    acknowledging him
    encouraging him
    and affirming him

    Most men I meet through my small groups dont get emotionally stimulated the way they would prefer. This leads to them withdrawing in some way. Usually some vice or another woman. Then the woman calls Dr Laura and cries about why her man is distant and withdrawing. Laura usually steers her down the path of telling her to value her man more and show him he is number one with love and attention. Looks dont matter here.

    Hello everyone!

    I have been searching for "that special someone" for a very long time now. I just truned 38 on May 8th. Everytime I look at a woman's profile I see the total opposite. They want the "ken doll" type or G.I. Joe type. But not once do they mention about getting to know the guys personality and what morals he has. I was brought up that personality and morals are verry important and also how someone treats you, not looks! However looks do play a part to a certain extent. If you are not attracted to the other person then the rest does not matter. At least so I am told.

    As for me, I am looking for woman who is generally proportionately sized for her body type. Whether she be slim, average, thin, muscular, BBW or just a little chubby. I am attracted to her face first. The color of her eyes, her smile, and does she have what I consider a pretty face. I do not necessarily go for the "Barbie" types. Some times yes I do, but most of the times I do not.

    Obviously it seems they do,cant understand why most barbie's are boring they might look good but lack a distinct amount of humour because they love themselves so much and the vanity swings both ways as the man wants a beautiful lady on his arms.

    Shame really as most will end up with someone they dont really love or care about and will just jump in to it for the money or looks meaning they will never meet someone they truly care about except each others bank balance.

    Maybe they search for the same slender person that matches their type of body. I get obese women emailing me all the time. Should I look past that? Im slender and would prefer a slender lady who I can pick up if I choose for all the right reasons. Making love to a slender woman has its benefits.

    They may seek Barbies cause the ladies seek ken. They have a divorced Barbie on the market this Christmas season. She comes with all Kens stuff.....

    I think it's hiliarous that all the men are looking for this "Barbie" type of woman, and there's nothing wrong with being drop dead beautiful but what bothers me is that you look at these men and I don't see many of them taking care of themselves and trying to make themselves look like the description of a woman they want. I think it's become acceptable custom for a man to be desireable at any age where women are called old at 30. They need to sit back and think for a minute that we all look different for a reason, it's called individuality and I am quite happy with mine, pros and cons becuase it's what makes me different from everyone else. Not to mention the fact that woman have children and I won't say that it gives anyting to your body afterwards. I would love to see these men go thru the pains that us women go thru to produce more Barbie wanting men. Yes looks are important when you are looking for someone but I know from experience that looks wont take you very far once you get to know that person and have realized that good looks aren't good looks anymore becuase you can't stand their behavior or personality. Men, get a grip and lower your standards because women have been lowering theirs for years!

    Being A BBW doesn't have to be the sign of lack of discipline. I workout 3 to 4 times a week, i'm very active and healthy - but yes due to genetics have been subjected to the HIGHER end of the scale.

    I do not feel that men are shallow for preferring a certain shape or size. It is the laws of attraction that speak - yes sometimes it's a little disappointing when I know Ihave so much to offer, but because of my size, I will not be given the time of day - at that point I see it as THEIR lost, not mine.

    I am a very disciplined person, I have been a single mom for several years to 4 wonderful children, I have my own business, I work in an industry that is filled with "beautiful barbies" film/music - and although everyone is entitled to their opinion, I will have to disagree with anyone that says that everyone who is on the larger side has lack of motivation or discipline.

    I am the perfect example of such contradiction - Unlike many, I don't have the time to work out 3 or 4 hrs a day at a gym - I'm french canadian, I love my white wine and unfortunately good food - will this make me enjoy life less - NO - I am healthy, I am strong, my doctor continues to marvel at my constitution, I simply have too much weight that for some reason seems to love to stay with me.

    The right one is out there for all of us, if he/she is too dumb to recognize it - well then maybe next lifetime. A relationship would be great, but it does not define who I am and will not stop me from believing in all that is good in this world.

    Luck to all of you looking for the right one!!!!

    The barbie syndrome is a prevalent misconception, but since I've arrived in the USA, I've realized how much fatter people here are. I believe I've read "the body is the temple of God". If a person is SERIOUSLY overweight, how much discipline can they have?

    A friend and I recently talked about what men want from women and what he thought women wanted from men.

    His specifications was: an attractive, athletic, intelligent woman.

    When I asked him what he thought women wanted he said along the lines of: a financially stable man who is a good provider.

    I thought that was strange. Men want physical beauty, but some think that we want financial beauty. Forget physical attractiveness.
    I'm not sure I agree with him because I'm able to financially take care of myself and my son, perhaps not in the manner a male would, being that men are paid more than women in general.

    I do agree though that women will settle for a guy who has a pot belly, not as tall as she'd like, hasn't seen muscle tune for a decade, and losing hair.

    Why? Because we don't put as much weight or value, especially after we've reached a certain age, on physical perfection or close to perfection. We are willing to look beyond the pot belly if the guy treats us with respect.

    But I think sooner or later men will run into a rut because women young and old are becoming more than capable of supporting themselves, so if women stop looking for financial security will we hold men to a higher standard in their physical appearance?

    So hold men to a higher standard now!

    In my case, it is not so much the beauty of Barbie, but the "in-shapeness"... I have always tended to be on the thin side, but I can beer-belly double-chin with the best of them! It takes a lot of work, effort, etc. to maintain a "healthy" weight. As Sherwin2006 said "discipline"...

    I have spent the last year and a half (last 14 years off and on???) working very hard to get my body to the shape I want. I am looking for a similar level of commitment in a partner... And it is not at just the physical level, but also includes emotional and intellectual planes as well. I realize we are not all handed the same assets, but we do all have the capability to manage those assets.

    I agree with rob

    Although, I would like to add that not all men want a barbie. I personally will date and have dated BBW's. I only require a great personality. That's not to say that I prefer BBW'S, but it's not an automatic disqualifier either. I am a true alfa male, who loves women and can usually find something attractive about any woman. Be it her eyes, her smile, her legs, her skin tone, or even her toes.

    I encourage you not to give up your search. Besides, there are some men who realize that sometimes the size of a woman is not as important as the quality.

    Hi pretty lady,
    Most men here are just looking to see how many women they can get. They dont want relationships and most of them don't make what they say they do. You are beautiful and if they do not respond to you, then you are better off. Good luck :-)

    Words of wisdom! The kind of man I will attract will actually be relating to my mind and brain (what's left of it), as opposed to preening around with a trophy, his mind not on what she has to say but on how many admiring looks he is getting when they go out for a meal. Men that take me out have eyes for me only. They're always worth waiting for.

    (continuation) nurturing herself with food instead of with self love? She is creating a barrier wall for herself by blocking people out.
    I don't know you but just by looking at your photos and reading your profile I can see many positives about you.
    For one, you are holding a puppy in your arms, that in itself tells me that you are a kind and loving individual.
    You are a nurse, which instantly portrays in image of a caring, nurturing, strong, intelligent person.
    You are a single Mom, which shows me you have courage, strength and the ability to love another.
    And last not but not least, you came to this site so that tells me you are an individual who is willing to take risk in life and is open to commitment.
    So instead of creating a barrier of what some may read as negatives why not emphasize what is beautiful about you, because you do have beauty, you just have to let it shine through more.
    Peace and serenity,
    P.S. Believe it or not some of the most outwardly beautiful women I know spend many a Friday nights alone because no one wants to take the time to get to know their kind and gentle souls. In all aspects of life there are issues, its just a matter of overcoming them and finding our own paths.
    Good luck in your endeavors!!

    Someone can be big and beautiful, which you seem to be. But as I read your profile I sensed many insecurities. Instead of really putting emphasis on your outstanding qualities, such as being a strong woman who I am sure is raising a very loving intelligent child, and the fact that you are a nurse which takes schooling which equals intelligence, you put more emphasis on matters of finance.
    And while this site is called Millionaire Match, of course there will be underlying tones of finances, one must also remember that the word "Match" is in there, hence looking for your "match".
    If we really look at psychology we cannot help but admit that we as women will look for a man that is normally taller, financially stable, and has a good intellect, why? Because it is almost preprogrammed in us to look for Someone that can be a good provider.
    Men, on the other hand are going to look for beauty ( as in the eye of the beholder) a nurturing personality, and a caregiver, hence looking for a good caretaker for the family and home. This is just human nature. Its in us.
    In our world being overweight does conjure up thoughts of not being able to discipline ones self. Look at some of the reality shows that are on the air. One in particular stands out to me....a larger, but beautiful woman is in the drive-Thur line at Mc D's and she is supersizing everything, why is she

    Aside from the fact that I have visible photos, I wasnt aware that displaying ones' beauty is a requirement to post to a site, nor can I fathom a reason why I would want to hide my beauty.

    I do not completely comprehend your questions, but will attempt to answer. What is your definition of "no picture?" What pictures would you like to see?

    In one sentence, you posed the question about hiding, then intimated guilt in the next sentence by asking how I plan to educate others by hiding.

    I wasn't aware that I had a plan to "educate others". Is that your hope for me." If so, I am flattered - thank you. Millions of people post with no "plan" in mind; whereas, you have specific questions for me - questions which don't appear to have any relevance to the referenced topic.

    I would of course, have to agree with your assertion that I am hiding before I could appropriately answer your question. Some humans tend to project on others what best describe themselves - in your case "hiding".

    I can respect the fact that your perception is your reality.

    Perhaps I should pose a more important question: Why is a female so interested in seeing my photo?
