Probably it’s because people fall in love with other people, regardless of size or weight. Or maybe because individuals are allowed their preference of body type? As for you not seeing “many large women with large men” how about 1) it’s not your business, and 2) open your eyes the rest of the way?
I don’t know what else to tell you. Your perception is not reality, and even if it were, a thin man and a heavier woman have every right to be together without being (incredibly strangely) labeled hypocrites.
I mean, you can love all body types (sans scare quotes) without being in a relationship with them. It sounds like you are only seeing what you want to see.
Thanks! We like you, too.
