Ok, i guess I'll be the shallow guy here! Body type DOES matter - especially initially! Most people, tho they don't admit it, will make initial decisions about a potential suitor based on looks and actions. And, while i will agree that our society WAY overemphasizes "thin" or even skinny, a person says alot about themselves by the way they take care of themselves (or don't).
And yes, love is blind and all that good stuff, but with most rare exceptions, being out of shape or overweight is a DECISION.
They don't have to be covergirl or gymstud type bodies, but it's really not that much of a streach to order a salad as opposed to two big macs!
Why do I say this? Well, i'm 5'8" and now weigh 150lbs and a 31" waist. 5 years ago, i was at 200, lbs with a 38" waist! I can tell you that my personal as well as my physical well-being have improved 100000%! How? No big fad diet, I simply cut back on the foods that made me fat! From fast food to a 6-pack of beer a day, i just started cutting back on my intake, and some very LIGHT excercise!
So, at the risk of belaboring this point, and most likely further irritating many others on here, I will say again - YES, body and physical apperance DOES have an impact on who i choose to date and get physical with ! If I can change my body, anyone can!
