Seriously people, whats with all this 'guys dig curves' garbage? Yea right! If guys dig curves, than why is the stick-thin image promoted? And why do guys only date mainly skinny girls whose legs don't even touch when they walk?

Anyone else in high school notice this? Do you think it's just our age?

Haha, I get it :P

This is all getting hella complicated D: And there should be a legal "using-the-internet" age in this country. Too many of us have made the mistake of picking fights in the safety of anomynity...

Well, you psoted a pic of yourself in a bikini. I wouldn't call that anonymous...

I think Jess was pointing out that different people have different ideas of what curvy is, just could've worded it a little bit better.

The person she was quoting was all, "This is MY definition of curvy. I've also seen others with a completely different standard." It's perspective.

Personally I think it has more to do with bone structure than anything.

Agreed. sort of. I think Jess was trying to show her little knowledge of curviness. Maybe by the time she hits 30, she'll realize how to expand such small-minded thoughts...

How is it being small minded? You often come across as immature and (Quite frankly) stupid in your posts...

how? she says first that it's ridiculous some of the people who call themselves curvy. then she says anyone can call themselves curvy if they feel like it. If she had an advanced mind, she wouldn't need to keep changing her opinion based on what others think. I don't change my mind just because you ( a random person not in the conversation) snaps at me. She does.

An... advanced mind...? Seriously? Is that the best excuse you came up with as to why you think she's wrong? Are you saying that you think you're smarter and have more experience than someone like 10 years older than you?

i am what you'd call "curvy" by the "guys dig curves" girls' standards. not quite overweight, nowhere near skinny or average.

i hate it. guys do not dig those curves. those women need to suck it up -- you are no more "real" than a skinny woman, and most guys do not dig your "curves".

guys dig healthy curves and thick girls.  most guys do not dig jiggly, floppy, flabby excuses for curves, aka rolls.

sorry if this offended anyone, but it's the awful, awful truth.

sometimes people use the word curvy in the place of fat.

(FACT....same goes for almost anything)

"guys dig curves" is a cliche and is also an ambiguous statement. Define curves for example. For me curves (and I am not a guy) mean the muscles and boobies of a girl and in no way the fat deposits that make arms and legs look like overstuffed sausages. Of course I don't like skeletons but you should look at some of the women that call themselves curvy...

agreed. ( This is called an opinion, which I can have)

Jess....chill out. We get that you think no heavy person should DARE calm themselves curvy.

wtf? point out where I said that. There are heavier women who are curvy, and then there are big women who are not curvy, but extremely over weight that call themselves curvy. BUT They can call themselves whatever they want...NO-ONE IS STOPPING THEM.

 

 BUT There's a difference between the two.

 BUT It also depends on how that person feels about their body, so if a 350 pound woman feels curvy and sexy, then she can call herself that if she wants.

Your making accusations that dont exist. You seem to have a problem reading properly...glasses perhaps? Is it time for a visit to the Dr?

I am by no means curvy, but if I loved my body the way it was and I felt curvy, I can call myself curvy all I want, but does it make it true? No.

(I wonder if shes going to have a hard time comprehending this.)

I lvoe how you yell at me, and complain, until some other person you don't know tries to (pathetically) defend you. At least I'm independent. I don't need them to defend myself. Maybe YOU should realize you're 23; once you start acting like it, i'll treat you like one.

Yes, I do have a hard time comprehending this. It makes no sense. Your one oxymoron/hyprocrite (you choose).

See ya

P.S. a mature 23-year old would not act sarcastically (*pats you on the head*) curse (wtf?)

well your 14, so I treat you like your 14.

You dont know the first thing about being on your own.

Being 23 doesn't mean I cant be sarcastic.

Your 14 and you act like it.

Everyone else understood but you. Good luck.

Wow, this is really long. I don't have the patience to read through all 18 pages but I thought I'd leave my two cents.

I think it also could be culture. I grew up in an asian community and there, it seemed like curves=fat so, I was always considered to be a fat pig. I was about 120 lbs, 5'1", and had a 36-25-36, give or take, measurements for the majority of high school and was still considered to be fat. The biggest thing I would get teased for was my thighs, which were about 21", pretty average sounding to me right now but it was apparently considered super huge fatty thighs.

I'm a little bigger now (It hasn't been that long). 135lbs, 5'3" and 38-26-38, but trying to get back to my old high school size and I now live in a predominately hispanic community (Which is why I'm bigger. Puerto rican food is love) and I get hit on quite often. I'm also considered to be thin, too. I haven't gone back home but I probably would get a bunch of garbage about how I'm so obese I am now, if I went back.   

Curvy IMHO is WHR Curvy and curves are good. Guys are all different. Most guys I know now don't like skinny girls and get sick at the thought of rib bones. But most of the guys I knew growing up would get sick at the idea of a woman's thighs touching. Everyone is different.

EXACTLY. A 23-year old SHOULDN'T be sarcastic.

Ha? I'm not a smart? I happen to be a straight-A honor student in the NJHS (you probably don't know what that is) with an average of 97%. I don't stalk profiles of 14-year olds and then yell & whine at them like a 4-year old. And I can comprehend when someone changes their opinions every second. It's obvious and annoying.

Just like in the aggravated reflection (which I have not read and never will, though my e-mails told me you resonded after you said you were done-pitiful) I will not respond after this. I wish to have nothing to do with you, a bully.

Goodbye.

 Why shouldn't a 23 year old be sarcastic? It's natural for people to be sarcastic. And who said she stalked your profile? You POSTED this on a FORUM. Anyone can see it and post on it. If you don't want people to say stuff on it, then don't post it.

You do realize that a person can be book-smart but not common sense smart? I too happen to be 14 years old in honors classes and advanced programs; You're not special dude xD

 I think it's National Junior Honors Society. My middle school had one too. That's like, being in Algebra instead of Pre-algebra or something like that.

My theory: she's so incredibly insecure IRL that she's trying desperately hard to be "popular" and "edgy" on the internet. She ALWAYS wants to be the victim and have people comfort her, so she thinks she's being tough by snapping at the older posters and accusing them of picking on her just because she doesn't want to/is too lazy to follow their advice.

(azarado: Aren't you around the same age as her? Thanks for giving me back a little hope for her age group if you are :P)

Jess: Just letting you know your advice/life experiences aren't falling on deaf ears, because I'm listening. You sound like a really strong person. I've been in therapy as well, for about six months, and I hope I'll be able to make the same progress that you have. <3

 The fact you continue to argue this point is proof that you are not mature. Period. Also, why not just... not respond in the first place if it offended you? You should have gotten to the 'good bye' state the SECOND it upset you- what point is there to argue this point over the internet? It kind of makes you look pitiful.

ON TOPIC- I think 'curvy' is all in one's mind. I know plenty of 'chubby chasers', I know plenty of guys and girls who like skinny girls, I know lots of people who like brunettes- to lump one 'type' as the be-all-and-end-all is a little close-minded. I understand your frustration, but that would be like saying girls ONLY like 90-pound guys with dyed black hair, guyliner and wear skinny nut-hugger jeans. I don't like that, I know plenty of women don't like that.

It's all preference, really.

Newmeforever: See? When so many people say the same thing, it might be worth to listen to it.

I wish you a good life. I hope you succeed. You obviously know more about life than I do, and for the record you need to learn the difference between stalking someones profile and following a topic in a forum. I wonder if you know what that means. *shrug*

I feel bad for you. You crave the attention so bad. Its pitiful.

 

and..I didnt know there was a cut off age for being sarcastic? Thanks for enlightening me. I suppose theres a cut off age for laughing and...a cut off age for having fun too.

 

you dont respond or look because your scared of the truth. You dont want to hear the truth or get help. You want attention.

commentary from this article:

http://jezebel.com/5576832/isnt-it-about-time -we-called-curvy-models-simply-models?skyline =true&s=i

Curvy?

"I agree Tavi, let's drop the "Curvy." I think "Curvy" has become a pretty much useless word in our vernacular. All women, scratch that, all people are curvy. The human body is supposed to have curves. Fat women have them! Skinny women have them! Men have them! In-between-sized women have them! It's a stupid and useless euphemism for fat or plus-sized. It's falls into that uncomfortable "real women" zone, for me. All women are real. All women have curves. I wish we could take the shame out of language and just be able to use words as descriptors, instead of euphemisms or ways to hang shame on people".

 

I agree, and you should too! All women are curvy and all of them are real.

 Exactly my feelings about this topic. That whole saying orginally was about girls of average size who happended to be blessed with big boobs, and a nice lil booty. It is not at all about very overweight people with rolls. Some how 'curvy girls' became the poltically correct way of saying fat. Fat is not sexy (well for the vast majority of people it isn't). I'm not saying that you need to be one of those emanicpated looking girls, with their ribs poking out but people who say they are curvy and happy, thats good for them. But I prefer to be healthy size, and happy. You can be fit and fat. But its been proven my numerous studies that having all that excess fat around your organs etc is not healthy!

Well I've always been on the bigger end of the scale and I never had any problems dating. Guys however find me more attractive now that I've lost three stone, but maybe that's because I'm a 14 instead of a 22 and have curves.

I've never met any guys who like to date skinny girls. I think it's only other girls who like skinny girls or aspire to be like them. Eventually it all comes down to personality :P Boring, I know. Guys prefer a girl who can have fun and make them laugh which is what it boils down to in the end. So don't worry so much about size and concentrate more about people skills :P

Also yes :p high school guys tend to go for popular, and in high school popular = skinny. Maybe it wasn't that they were skinny it was because they acted confident.

The older generation however find beauty attractive and not so much size.

You are absolutely right, guys and boys don't like curves.  But men love curves.  Don't worry too much about it, high school boys are idiots anyways.

i'm soooo confused here..

i added to this thread a long time ago, but I don't remember what I said :p

all I know is different guys like different body types, and there's waaayy too much generalization going on here

I'm a 16 year old guy and I have to say that I LOVE CURVES! :)

Just not too many >_>

A shapely body is preferred by most guys! Tongue out

My stats: 16 years old, male, 5'6"-5'7", 113 pounds. Currently trying to gain some weight.
