    I think it's if German origin. (I'm German.) It means juicy. Glad to have made a linguistic contribution considering our language doesn't have the best reputation :)

    The spelling with a "z"=zaftig is indeed Yiddish - but the etymology is German. But then again, app. 85% of Yiddish has its roots in late medieval German. So understanding Yiddish, especially if you're familiar with the Berlin dialect is easy for native German speakers.

    Maybe they thought you were her type, and hoped you had varied tastes?

    As for me, honestly it has seldom come up. Probably as a four eyed nerd with bad acne everyone assumed in teen years that idI just have to settle, and what I wanted didn't matter so much. And in engineering at university we mostly did our best monk immitations, as everyone was too overloaded to have a lot of time to worry about such things. And then I started dating my now wife in my last year, despite what I just said, so people didn't ask much because it would be rude, maybe?

    To the degree that I've had to answer this, I've mostly said something like "I never shared the normal preferance for skinny" or "I share certain opinions with Queen and Sir Mixalot". At which point people normally change the topic :D

    I love intelligent men. Intelligence in a man is very sexy. If you can engage my mind you're halfway there.

    A gift of the gab helps as well because once I get over my initial nervousness, I'm very talkative. :)

    (I won't mention my fondness for sex. LOL)

    Hahaha.
    I find this an interesting topic although I like larger ladies who are bright and engaging, I find someone who accepts you for who you are is most important weather they are tinny or huge. Happiness laughter shared interests with a loving partner trumps all

    Correct me if i’m wrong, BEK, but seems to me that your radio DJ stint/career stands you in excellent conversational stead (wrote the former 15 year long non-commercial radio DJ/broadcast engineer).

    ^Sapiosexual. At least that’s the term i’ve seen used for this. Goes every which way (in terms of genders and all that), so that’s how i (self-)identify.

    You've got a point there. But that was long ago in a galaxy far, far away. I haven't done anything in radio since helping out the Armed Forces Broadcasting troops in Kuwait in 1991. So, I'm a bit rusty.

    I guess it depends on who's asking. If it's someone not of this community I'd probably describe personality traits that I value like kindness and intelligence and sense of humor. If it's someone from the community or someone who is just asking physically then I'm not afraid to tell them I prefer fat girls who like fat guys.

    I’m just coming to terms with my desire to gain. I’ve squashed it forever but no longer. Not sure how I’m going to answer the questions I might get but just hoping I can stand strong and stay the course. I’m also hoping my wife will be accepting of my decision to gain.

    Yep, sapiosexual is the word. I'm so there with you on that. I do get what I call "intellectual orgasms" from these great people ;)

    When I was dating some of the descriptions of what men were saying they were looking for on dating sites really bothered me so I have given this topic some thought. I remember one ad that said "not too tall BBW" and I was thinking if only that guy knew how tall he was he could put " not taller than me and I am 5' 6" " or whatever!

    When I first started dating an FA I had the strange sensation of being jealous of every somewhat attractive, younger BBW that walked by us but then I realized he was only interested in TALL BBWs like me, 5'9" to 5'11" (about the same height to slightly taller than him), so that made that occurrence much more rare. I would start with a height range if you have one, I guess is what I am saying. That is pretty easy.

    Another would be weight. If you know a weight range that you prefer than that would help your friends a lot, especially if they know the weight of the matches. I know you said that wasn't enough but it could help if you added it to other descriptors.

    Next would be boobs and butts. Which of those is important to you and the size range on that. That seems to be very important with some men down to the fact that they must have a bra size in a certain range. If you don't care, then don't mention it because your female friends will probably not want to hear that.

    Third is shape. The main shapes are pear (larger hips, smaller top), apple (small shoulders and hip and large waist), hourglass, V shape (large top, narrow hips) and androgynous (no curves, shoulders, waist, hips all the same width). That should narrow it down quite a bit!

    Another would be muscle to fat ratio. Both types of body component can make you a BBW if you have a lot of it, so maybe describe how much fat and where you like it or how big the muscles in the arms, legs or butt.

    Then you can throw in hair color, race, etc. if any of those are important. The more you narrow the less matches you will get so make sure the parameters you give are all important to you.

    I do like your idea of finding photos or the ideas of using names of celebrities. There are not many fat female celebrities so that is harder to do than with men I would think. Also most plus sized models are hourglass shaped so if you like another shape you will have trouble finding that in a Torrid catalog.

    I personally prefer men that are taller and heavier than me ( 5'9" 325#) with about a 25% body fat or less but they are super rare so I settle for men who are at least my height and weigh at least 225# and not more than 30% body fat. I am a sapiosexual too so that narrows down the pool even more!
