With the popularity of weight shows like "The Biggest Loser" and the dating show "More to Love", Date.com during the months of July and August asked thousands of men if they preferred to date women who are thin or women who have a few extra pounds. In a surprising result, 85 percent of men preferred to date a heavier women. 80 percent of the men who liked heavier women said the reason for this was heavier women appreciate the attention a man would give them more and that heavier women are also less bitchy than thin women (their words not mine). The funny thing is, in a similar survey for women, Date.com found that 90% of women thought heavier women would have a harder time dating because men can't see beyond a few extra pounds.
