What is more attractive?
For men, do you prefer a real skinny woman or a woman with some meat on her bones?
For woman, do you prefer lanky men or real muscular men?
No super skinnies for me. Jennifer Lopez-like is the best.
I like my man lean. That's just my preference.
A lean horse always win the race!
I like my women ( ahem, I meant woman) with real curves. I cannot go for the anorexic size-zero look. I find the bony projections a turn off and will feel like feeding the poor soul rather than feasting on the gentle curves. Thats just me, I am afraid.
I like my man mean and lean, meaning he has muscles but he's trim, not bulky.
I can't stand these blokes who walk around stiff, as if they have some difformity, with their shoulder pressed out & back with that triangle shape down to the waste line!
Slim - toned & definitely not bulky!
At this point any female works. Don't care about weight or body type, as long as she's around my age and has two X chromosomes.
Personally, I love a big guy. The taller the better, and I like them to be SOLID. I don't even mind a really heavy guy, provided he carries his weight in a masculine way. I don't want to mistake him for a woman from behind. Ultimately, though, if you can snag my brain, my body may surely follow....lol The rest is just a matter of physical attraction, which I'm guessing is what you were actually looking to hear about. :-)
You've gone to extremes here: skinny or 'meat on her bones' I think you mean 'overweight.' For me, 'cos I'm a little guy, Petite. Beautifully proportioned, slender but not skinny.
That said, when younger - I'm an old married guy who's been married to the same 'petite' girl for over fifty years, I have gone steady with a plump, voluptuous blonde and thought the world of her.
Frankly, I think it gets down to compatibility, liking, and simply getting on well.
I'm a man- just kiddin'
I'd prefer a lanky man, really.. . but if the right man comes along I'll take him as he is
What attracts is often fleeting. In the end, it's how she leaves me feeling about myself. Funny how such a thing changes one's view of beauty. I've tried some beautifully prepared meals that looked far better than they taste. To find attraction that last, you have to get through the wrapping. Surprising, sometimes, the gift that it conceals. Perhaps, we are all to enamored by the wrapping. Perhaps we loose the gift.
If I had to choose, I'd say lanky, un-muscular men. Big, beefy guys are kind of..icky. But if you looked at my track record and compared all the guys I've ever liked or dated, there'd be no pattern. I've liked super tall and skinny guys. I've liked guys that were significantly shorter than me. I've liked guys from every major racial/ethnic group. Fat, skinny, muscular...it doesn't seem to matter to me.
I like a man that is creative, smart and attractive! body size does not really matter!
I like everyone who is nice and ... Nice. There's so many nice men and women of all body types, it's really hard to choose from.
I would not choose one over another just by the looks, it's always a whole package. What's also important is if he thinks about this stuff in somewhat similar fashion.
I use to think that I was on the team skinny but now I'm leaning towards team heavy. When I was younger I was too shallow to admit it but now I have found the most beautiflul women that I will ever know. And she's perfect the size she is. I find that people are either pretty or ugly no matter what they look like on the outside. The skin may be flawless but the heart may be tarnished.
It depends on her body type. A woman can have meat on her bones but if she doesnt have a sexy shape then whats the point. The same thing with slender women. You can be slim and still have a sexy shape. It all depends on how she carries it.
I prefer a woman with a some meat on her bones. Now I don't mean a big woman, but I also don't like a girl that's nothing but bones. That's a little scary to be honest.
I prefer taller male and like nice body also no to muscular and no to much thin in between sport guy
Actually, I don’t have a type. I thought I liked muscular men, but my man is tall and lean; it is who he is as a person that drew really me in. And, okay, I'm a sucker for dark hair and blue eyes, and he has both.
I'm a man... Attractive to me is the one who is neat and clean
Not necessarily skinny but definitely not overweight :p
I PREFER A REAL SKINNY WOMEN I THAT I CAN PICK UP ANY CARRY AROUND AND WHEN HAVING SEX .
every women which i loves attrract me. women with scarless face.
I think Arb has got something there. I've dated a lot of small petite ladies in my past...but the one I finally could not live without is almost as tall as me.
Curves are the mystery that men are mesmerized by, the wit and charm is what keep us coming back, but it is the soul of the individual we are connected forever with.
Being Latin, I prefer some meat(curves), Latin ladies usually have bigger curves. But at the end of the road.. curves alone are not the deciding factor. I like intelligence, humor, creativity, and loyalty in which turn I will give the same.
I prefer a woman with some "meat on her bones". The usual super model looks like she is sick and starving.
I don't want to break her, so she needs some body, Skinny is sometimes cute, but usually means she doesnt eat enough and might be prone to catching colds all the time. Healthy is happy. Good bodies have more weight so they can make that body groove. Definately meaty...why do you ask?
I like men that are on the skinny/leaner side. I like musclar men, also. A man that has a nice physic is much more appealing to the eye, but my fasination with muscle men dwindled when the the Terminator stop doing movies and became the governer of California. Umm, the buff look is not in this year.Doesn't mean their not still sexy, just not to me. ;-) Just my opinion.
I like long, lean muscles like those of a runner- fit but not over the top.
I like my guys bigger than me. Being a little heavier for my size, I prefer not to weigh the same as the guy...it's better if he's a bit bigger than me and then I feel like a smaller girl
I like boobs...so a girl with a figure is preferred not fat but busty and a thinner waste Skinny chicks are good but I like te boobs what can I say I give the straight Shhhh...
I like my men more muscular. It might be because my dad was that way when he was younger, though. ^^ I have the unfortunate disposition of liking older men in their late 20's early 30's with the tall and semi-hulking thing going on... And sadly, they're usually already taken. TT_TT
I usually go for slimmer guys, because I have a thing for geeky guys, I find intelligence very attractive (brain over braun any day!) and most geeks tend to be lanky types. For example my ideal guy is Matthew Grey Gubler (Spencer Reid Criminal Minds). In women i think a good figure is nice, but i think a good figure includes some curves (I think the most beautiful woman ever is Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres Grey's Anatomy).
i want my woman not to just have bones but also some meat on them.. most of all she should like herself before anyone liking her.
For me, a guy's personality really decides a lot of my attraction. I've dated tall and short, very slim and also muscular. Of course it's also good to have chemistry. I can't put a specific type on my list though.
I prefer women with some meat on her bones it is something about curves that I like.
I'm shooting for the middle and saying "athletic." A little heavy, but not fat. muscle weighs more than fat, right?
I suppose I prefer the women with meat on their bones. However, at this point in my life looks do not matter to me near as much. I learned over the years it's what's betwixted the ears that matters most.
I don't see anything sexxy at a skinny woman when you can count her bones , but I must say that this doesn't come first, depends also on her character.
I like curves on a woman. Certainly, their should be some meat to the body. So basically, a sexy shape.
Real skinny, is not good. There needs to be a healthy balance.
I like Julia Stiles, Sarah Underwood, Jennifer Lopez, Janelle Monae - these women are examples of attractive women to me.
Of course, there are other physical traits I like.
However, there's even more personality traits I seek in a woman. Particularly loyalty, honesty, and a sense of humor.
Oh muscular men will always do it for me!
I don't like to see a very thin man, because it just makes me feel fat in comparison.
I like woman with flesh on the bones, and curves.
If she has,in addition, a genuine smile-it is a winning combination.
I dont like skinny or bony girl.
Maybe Im influenced with the fact that Im a doctor, and I see skinny woman as a sick one.
As long as she's healthy, I don't care about her weight. I've met gorgeous chubby women who carried themselves really well and slim women who also carried themselves well. It's all about confidence.
Oh.!! a very nice question..!! .. love to answer this. Surely it is women with curves and medium sized breasts. It really is attractive.
I prefer my men to be chunky. I don't know if my husband classes as muscular. Maybe muscle on holiday. But I definitely prefer that over skinny any day.
I really am attracted to eye color, smile and personality traits more than weight. I have dated really skinny girls, and I have dated girls that are a little bit heavier than what most would consider skinny.

I think everyone has there own preferences, You would think people prefer dark skin that's why they are out in the sun and at the tanning beds Always striving to look better, but not striving to be better people.
