I am your average-sized girl (around, not vertically), but I can see how some men could view me as "fluffy." Many of my friends, however, know I am athletic and have often commented they think I am a little ball of muscle (thanks for the ego stroke, but it isn't true!) - obviously seeing that extra bulk as desirable tissue. This may just be because they love me too much to tell me I'm a fatty mcfatfat :-)
I have, however, developed this philosophy that if you know someone is athletic, you probably view them as thinner and more fit than they are in actuality. So, when you are feeling large and in charge, always make sure to declare your love, devotion, and commitment to Gym. Just say, "I work out*."
What do you think?
*Interestingly enough, "work out" the verb is two words, while "workout" the noun is only one. Now you are smarter. You're welcome.
