    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.

    because they are pigs, beauty is over rated. I'm not saying I'm beautiful, but I get sick of hearing it, I would love to hear, Megg your funny, or witty, or anything that has to do with who I am. Beauty is only skin deep, I don't understand why it is so important for a man to have a "beautiful" woman next to him even if that's all there is.

    summerrain, bear in mind that being slender is also a symbol of being healthy. We all want good genes for our progeny. And that goes a bit beyond external beauty.

    A person who has some overweight, usually has broken their natural body balance. They may suffer from minor or major conditions. So, in most cases, being slender also means that you care enough about your health so as to stay as healthy as you can.

    And you can tell if a person is healthy by looking at their skin texture, their hair, nails, etc-- among other things :)

    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.....

    No, some want substance and brains, not to mention class... now if all that comes in the "barbie" packaging, all the better... IMO, men who just look for barbies are definitely not my kind of men :)

    I think that you touch on a key point regarding the majority of men. I also think that if they are honest with themselves, a 22 inch waist isn't what they would want. So many women try to have a size 4 or less body. That translates to a boyish body since, unless they have implants, at that level they would not have full breasts. This body type has been pushed on the male psyche by fashion designers.

    The truth is that a woman has estrogen. This hormone prepares her body for breeding and breeding requires a certain amount of body fat to ensure a healthy child. For a woman to fight that, she has to go against nature and restrict her diet to the point of imbalance and depression. She may even lose her menses trying to be thin. How is this healthy?

    Maintaining a healthy weight is the best level. Having flexibility and toned muscles is what we should, as women, strive for. A REAL man will appreciate this. A man only concerned about how we look on his arm and not about how healthy we are is not a man we should be striving to meet.

    We must be true to our nature and our feminine attributes. We must not strive to fulfill an ideal that has been driven into our culture by mass media.

    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!

    By the way Barbie is out Bratz are in. Apparently Barbie is having to redefine herself, little girls can no longer identify with her and are favoring bratz over barbie. So perhaps we can now all let go of our hungups about not being like barbie. lol

    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.

    So true, when things are as they should be (attraction, and the connection w/the other person is there) size really doesn't matter. So perhaps it is about finding that someone you connect with on a higher level than physical attractiveness.

    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!!!!
