This is a question for eveybody. :smile: Is there a physical type that you enjoy dating; but when it comes to settling down with THE ONE you prefer something else? SAMPLE 1: For instance it is not uncommon for some white males to enjoy dating women of Asian, Hispanic, or Black heritage; but when it comes to marriage and children they always go back to their own race. SAMPLE 2: I have a male friend who is handsome, smart and is in excellent physical condition. He sometimes has trouble meeting women. I maintain it's because he is one of those rare men who sizes up each woman he meets to see if she could potentially be the mother of his children. The physical type of woman he would like to marry is highly intelligent, tall, pretty, lean yet muscled, big breasts. She should of course be diet and weight conscious as he is. Now here's the kicker. He's pushing 40 and has yet to date a woman that fits this description. He likes sex with women who are more rounded, curvy, and soft. Yet he tends to view these women as unhealthy as many do not work out or have a healthy diet. He would NEVER consider one of the women he enjoys sex with as having potential to be the mother of his child. He hasn't said it out right but I think he fears having dumb, fat kids. Do all men think like this? Are there women who date one physical type, yet marry another intentionally? Is this just a straight male phenomena or do gays and bi's do it too?
