If someone is from a family of slender people, they might consider that to be normal and therefore opt for the description of average because in their family, that will be average.
Whereas someone else might look at the same person and describe them as skinny or thin. You will never get a unanimous agreement as to what each category means.
When someone describes themselves as athletic, the mental image I get is of someone with low body fat and visibly defined muscle - someone who is well toned as a minimum.
Plenty of others will visualize something completely different.
I think all anyone can do is select the option which they feel is applicable to them and all any readers of profiles can do, is understand that this description is indicative of nothing but how the profile owner sees themselves.
