simply: nope.

really, obsessing over your body is a bad bad thing. almost EVERY female has at least a "small pudge" in her stomach, it's the way we're built.

so, relax and learn to love it.

(psst--and guys who are really *that* concerned with whether or not you've got a perfect stomach, well, maybe you should shop elsewhere.)

Some guys are attracted to that "small pudge" they like a girl that can show shes healthy and eats enough. My boyfriend, for example loves it on girls, but mines not really that way. But trust me its no where near perfect either.

Unfortunetly, I don't have a choice of'shopping elsewhere'. I live in a small town with very few people. And the other towns around are small as well and aren't any better.So I'm just stuck dang it!

well, if "all" guys (as you claim) are only interested in "perfect" bodies free of a little cushioning around the middle, free of stretch marks, free of zits, or whatever, then they're probably going to spend a lot of time alone.

nobody is perfect. models are airbushed into oblivion. liposuction and plastic surgery is artificial.

really, you're making a mountain out of a tiny molehill. while it's important not to become obese since that carries realy health risks, not having a 6-pack tummy is not worth your worry.

btw, it's really not fair to say "all" guys are looking for this, or that. they're not, and implying that they are is an insult to them as individuals. heck, did you not realize that there's a pretty noticeable group of guys who don't even want women at all?

the important thing is to stay healthy. one or two details are not going to ruin your chances. and if the dating pool is too shallow, or just needs some chlorine, then don't go swimming

Something I have noticed in some situations when it seems like *everybody* wants the same thing is that they often feel like they should. I have spent time with some guys from really small communities who said they felt like they were supposed to like 98lb 5'8 blond girls when in reality they really wanted a 5'2 150lb brunette.

BTW, my boyfriend finds the 'perfect' stomach to be anything but perfect. He downright oogles at girls that have pudges and short shirts that show it off. He too used to feel like he wasnt 'allowed' to like that.

Your probably right about certain guys feeling as though they have to like a certain type of girl. Now that I think about it, we have maybe 2 guys in our whole school that think for theirselves. Thanks for the reply. Hopefully one day I'll find a guy like yours!
