    Did UL say he wouldn’t date fat women? I missed that.

    my friend in Cleveland said she isn’t ready to date men over 50 (she’s 47). My dh is 52. i told her “well, I hate to tell you, but that’s your demographic. Personally, i’m a fan.”

    He made pejorative comments about fat women singles. I made the assumption that that means he wouldn't date them.

    I have gotten into traveling recently -- just a backpack and a plane ticket is my style. In the past couple years I have gone to Israel, Cuba, Jordan, Argentina, and Uruguay. I have also been to England, Spain, Costa Rica, Canada, Aruba, and Portugal. My next trip is either Iceland or Panama!


    I love all kinds of music -- yacht rock, disco, funk, folk, outlaw country, and so on.


    I am looking for a serious relationship that will lead to a life partnership. What I value most in a significant other are empathy, a sense of humor, shared values, and a mutual physical attraction.


    Talk to me about travel, your dog, or any book you're reading."

    I like it. Gives me an idea of who you are.

    He like curvy women.He dates them.

    Probably he has an idea of weight limit, as would I in the dating world.He would likley like women who could haul around their backpack on a walking European trip, and not all large people are willing to do that.

    IL my point was: he has ideals and standards, but it appears to me that he was pointing out (in what I read as a complaining tone) that someone else in a profile mentioned they had particular standards. It seems hypocritical to me about complaining about something, when you do the same thing. I wasn't judging on what the preferences actually were.

    Oh ok, well,
    I agree that UL certainly has requirements.

    What have I said I want?

    Where and when did I say I would "not date a fat woman?"

    I do have a preference for black women. But I am sincerely trying to be more open minded and less superficial. I am focusing more on personality and values because I think that is what really counts when looking for a life partner.

    You didn't miss it. I never said it.

    I challenge you to prove this accusation.

    My most recent girlfriend was 5'3" and 180 lbs. I am 5'9" and 195 lbs. That paints a picture.
