I agree with a lot of what has been posted here.

I have a conventionally attractive, super fit step-brother, and my god can he rarely go even one conversation without the talk veering towards what he is doing exercise-wise, foods he is eating, what you "shouldn't" eat, etc.

I highly doubt he's a secret lover of fatties but it's sure an interesting concept.


I would say fit men are slightly more hesitant about coming out. It crossed my mind a bit, but I was more focused on the crappy clicky people I knew in high school. But when you don’t want to come out anything is a good reason not to: I got a paper cut today, it’s raining so I am not coming out… “date them in public” doesn’t sound like a date when it’s not able to be in public.

If someone is working that hard to impress women, presumably he is seeking women who are in high demand, where he figures he needs to stand out as something exceptional to impress them. Sadly, in our society, that mostly means women who fit a certain physical image.

Throw in opportunity (if you spend a lot of time at the gym or doing sports, you are apt to meet women who do the same), and common interests, and it also makes it easier, in many cases, for them to meet women with similar priorities.

I'm positive that there are guys who work out a lot and are in awesome shape, who are into fat women, and that there are such guys who openly date, marry, etc fat women. I just suspect that it would be below the average rate of society as a whole.


I have been in some sort of exercise or sport basically my whole life. I like to joke and tell people the line from American Beauty, “I want to look good naked!”To me it really comes down to, I don’t feel right if I go a few days without exercising.The runners high is real, but you really have to be physically fit to get to it. I feel amazing after weightlifting.It is a huge plus that it helps me look a way that society views favorably upon. In my teens I dated athletic girls, that I was “supposed to” and was surrounded by.A small percent of the population is athletic, a much smaller percent of the population is both athletic and a FA/FFA.
happily_married, I agree with you.
I come from and currently live in a city of 20,000 people. Though I do know other FAs, none of them are athletic (of the confirmed FAs). “treat fitness like a religion” Do you know anyone who goes to Crossfit? I do believe HIIT works, but I want to vomit when I listen go members go on about the greatness of Crossfit.
I had knee problems when playing football in high school and had to stop, but can distance run no problem. Trail running is hard on the body, though the view is much better.When deadlifting I have to keep my feet angled at least 15 degrees or I have issues.

Of the gyms I have been to, you are correct. I have heard so much bad advice from “trainers.” But they are good looking, right? Weight and thinness is really only one measure of health.
