I don't generally post here but I saw a comment from a female user on another site and it was so perfect that I had to share it. To set the scene: a girl made a post complaining that one of her male friends was simply using his fat girlfriend for sex; waiting around until he found someone better. In response to this, one of the top female users on the site gave the following response:
This doesn't seem real.
When women see a guy with an obese girlfriend, that guy basically becomes a non-entity to them -- even if he's hot.
like, basically he has just disqualified himself for every woman who's seen him with that girlfriend (and all those women's friends, too).
Harsh reality, but, reality nonetheless. Women don't want themselves basically put in the same league as the girlfriend.
So... on the off-chance that this is actually real... this guy is totally fucking up his own plan. lol.
I feel like I should say something more but I honestly have nothing to add. She summed it up so perfectly.
EDIT: Some of you guys are getting pissed off and saying that the post is wrong because you shouldn't give a shit about what anyone else thinks. The latter is absolutely correct. If you happen to find a decent woman (overweight or otherwise) who you care about and want to be with, then you should be with her regardless of what anyone else thinks.
However, this particular story specifically pertains to being with an overweight woman in a temporary fashion (e.g. FWB). The point being: if you care about her then you should be with her, but if this is a temporary thing and you're planning to move on at some point, then you should be aware that it will possibly lower your SMV.
