Life as a big guy

Setting: Modern day Washington State small town in the mountains, with magic.

I'm developing a 1st person mc who is about 6'3', maybe 230 lbs, a burly mixed race guy in his twenties, with several younger sibs and a mom who is known as the town crazy. I happen to be of a very different body type, and I don't have anyone of this body type to ask. What is it like to be built like a lumberjack? Do people assume things about him, that he's dumb, likes to fight, that the pudge around his gut is a beer gut, etc? Are girls attracted to him, scared, dismissive? As he's straight but shy, how does he feel about girls? Assuming that he works out regularly (runs, a little weights), what would be his strengths and weaknesses physically? How does it feel to move inside his body, is everything built for smaller people? What things are easier or harder for him to deal with? I'm not looking for hard facts so much as a feel for the physical presence of the guy.

I searched for terms including 'burly man' 'body types' 'tall men' and assorted others, and got mainly porn or diet sites.
