Okay first and formost, guys will be guys. And yes they are visual, but you know what guys also get bored.. You may see a really skinny girl with a guy and hes flirtin or whatever but u know what the next hot girl he see's that other girl is history.. so what is this terlling you.. those are not the kind of guys u want to be longing for or wanting to date. A guy should except you regardless of your weight, looks, ect.. cuz im sure u would do the same for him.. My advice wait for that kind of guy u deserve...someone who is much better than the jerks who are only in it for looks, and believe me there are guys like that out there.. look at all the guys in this chatroom, they are really sweet, and look at anne's bf wouldnt u rather have to wait awhile for someone like that, than be upset over a guy that wont even care about u.. this letter might have sounded harsh to some of the guys out there.. but it's true we see it every day

don't say that! my older sister has such a unique personality and is obese but she's always has guys goggling after her because she's so awesome and artistic and just cool with herself. i also met my 1 yr and 4 month boyfriend at my biggest weight and he doesn't even want me to lose weight! i'm just doing it because i want to wear a bikini for once in my life!

The guys will come round in their own time. Plusit doesn't what they think, it matters what you think. Do you think your over-weight and are you confident about yourself? Being confident is what draws the guys to you in the first place, I know it doesn't hurt to be a britney spears look-a-like. But guys coming over for your body are only after one thing, or they find there is not much going on underneath the skin. Meaning= You need to work on the inner self, then you'll be happy about your outta self and it will show. If you do want to lose weight, or lacking body confidence then you should really talk to your parents first. krystle
