It matters as much or little as an individual ascribes meaning to.
A matter of subjective preference.
It actually depends on what you want as an individual because we act differently when it comes to selecting our choices of partner. Some guys prefer to marry busty (thick) ladies with boobs, hips, etc while some guys prefer slim ladies. Similarly, we also have the same in ladies such that some ladies prefer guys with muscular body while some ladies prefer guys with pot belly. It's just a matter of choice and it differs from individual to individual.
As for me, the most important thing I look for in a lady is her good character and how religious she is because this features comes from the heart and not the physical appearance. The fact is that a good woman with good character will make a good home because she will always make you happy and your children will take after her character due to the kind of training she teaches them.
I believe everything in life all have an expiry date and believe me when the time comes, the physical appearance or curves of such ladies will end up depreciating but her character or good heart will remain. Our grand parents used to be more handsome or beautiful just like we are presently but as time passes, those beauty and attractive physical structure faded away.
I am not saying you should go for an ugly person though but I want us to be more concerned about people who will truly love us till the end such that we won't end up regretting very late in the future after marrying them. This is why ladies have to be very careful about the type of guys they come across because some guys may just fall in love with their body size (curve, boobs, butt, etc) such that the guy will start pretending to love the lady without the lady knowing that it's just a form of deception. When the guy has already tasted and enjoyed the lady's body via sex to his satisfaction, he ends up sending the lady away by breaking her heart. I call this lust and not true love. 😊
In conclusion, I am more attracted to ladies with good act before considering her body size. If she has a thick body size, then that's an advantage for me 😀 and if she doesn't, all good provided she possess a good heart of love, sincerity, humbleness, submissiveness and caring attitude 😊.
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.
They do if you want to make a good first impression on people that are impressed with those assets. They matter based on personal preference. Some people would appreciate this and some don't. But the bottom line is they do matter in who you want to impress.
Depends on the person you are asking it to. People have different kind of tastes.
