Well, i think it all depends on personal choice. Some women prefer them but to me i think that excess of everything in not good. The pics of what am seeing here looks frightening and is a big turn off to me.
Prefer a man to look real & down to earth rather than like in the picture . Someone who looks after himself yet not going overboard to the point of being vain.
If they do I hope they don't live in the Land of the Whopper. Then again most men here don't really care about a woman's desires and wishes, now do they?
I'm not into men who look like body builders, but I won't complain at all if he has good abs! It just seems sporty, and sexy!
Abs yes, but not to the degree of the picture. That picture means that he has to work out a huge amount and that may mean he is so into his body-he has little time for anything else.
And as far as the picture is concerned--tell him to pull up his pants--pants hanging that low is NOT sexy.
every man has 'abs'...most six packs are just hidden under the 'keg'...really, if EVERY guy did not have 'abs', he would all down and could not get up, because we need our abductor muscles just to stand up
I don't know if women prefer men with great abs, I do know women prefer to look at men with great abs.
Ladies & Gentlemen:
I have been asked "What, there are not good enough men in Toronto?" after I have said that "I don't have a right pool of men to choose from". Or a pool of right men.
However ... Since I meet most men on a dancing floor in clubs, there are enough of them who are athletic. Not necessarily looking like Greek Gods, but quite appealing .... No, they don't remover their shirts for most of the time...
I cannot complain when a man has a great physique. Beauty is beauty - when a woman is beautiful or a man is beautiful it is a pleasure.
Plus, if a man is a lover, it gives an advantage, if it gives an advantage... Physical strength is a plus, but it does not substitute other skills.
In short, I won't mind if more men worked out (not excessively), but if they cared more about their bodies.
But in addition to having a great mind. I know ... I am asking for too much - but those things are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
A great physique can never be a "bad thing"...BUT after dating alot of "muscle-heads" and jocks, I determined a long time ago that I'd rather date a guy with a good heart than a good body anyday.
Pretty is as pretty does.
Sometimes a "red flag" for me is when a guy spends more than 5-6 hours a week working out....because, from my experience, he's preparing himself for something. I'm not saying that it's bad to workout or keep yourself in good shape.....but when a guy starts pumping iron and talking to me less it's usually a sign that he's looking for attention somewhere else.
I'd rather keep my "lean machine" of a guy and know that my heart is safe
....but then again, that's just me.
If your talking about the ABS braking system on a car then my answer is YES!!! Otherwise naaaw. All the time at the gym is time we could spend experiencing the world outside the gym.
A tight, flat, marked body, not just abs, is always sexier, men shouldn’t have problems in staying that way, you have great muscles that burn lots of calories, a fast metabolism and no sabotaging hormones, there is no excuse…. I personally love men that take care of their general well being, including their body.
Beauty in general will attract people attention but bottomline it will be compatibility than both men and women prefer.
i don't know why, but i think it has more to do with the activities of the sense of sight, just the same way it work in men too.
I think it depends on the individual. What people find attract differs from person to person. I would tend to say though that a physically fit look is generally deemed as more atttractive. I think people can become overly muscled though, or if an interest in health and fitness crossing over into pure vanity, that is a very unappealing character trait.
I prefer, a man who pulls his pants up over his hips. A bit of belly, means, that I am feeding him well!
Personally, a toned up, healthy person is all that is needed, with healthy being the most important. If these overly beefed up guys realize what they will look like when they hit 70, 80, or even earlier when the weight lifting stops, they would not start this to begin with. I think it is disgusting actually. Many look deformed.
I can't deny a strong muscular male body is exciting to look at. It's a matter of aesthetics. I really respect the hard work resulted in that appearance. Let's hope such men have also enough time to work on not just their physical form. (Sorry, I doubt it.)
This woman doesn't care one way or another but if she was single, she certainly wouldn't turn the man with the abs away. Hubba hubba.
I like a man that's not so in love with himself that he can't love anyone else. If they have abs then fine, if not then also fine. Frankly that photo looks horrid - but I guess he may be a nice person.
Personality ahead of abs every time for me.
Some women do. Others don't.
Like men, women do have particular types of men they find attractive.
The picture is ugly to me. I'd rather have a man with beautiful eyes and a great sense of humour. I would think that the man in the picture is so obsessed with himself, that he has no love left over for anyone else.
I'm not one for the body builder type, but I rather have somebody that takes care about himself and pulls me with him than another lazy a.... couch potato that couldn't even get his own beer!
SORRY ABS. WOMEN PREFER MEN WITH MONEY. THE MORE MONEY YOU HAVE, THE BETTER. NOW, IF YOU HAVE NO MONEY, YOU MUST LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE MONEY. START HANGING AROUND WERE MONEY IS, CASINO'S BANKS, ETC. REMEMBER, MONEY CANT BUY HAPPINESS, BUT IT CAN BUY THE TYPE OF MISERY YOUR MOST SUITED TO. GOOD LUCK, SEE YOU ON THIS SIDE,OR THE OTHER.
I mean....that picture is very very nice. *Drool* I personally have never experienced having a boyfriend built like this but I would not mind one a bit if he did have a scrumptious six pack.
Abs do not make the man. Serious, mature women want loving, responsible men. Abs is an extra, not a necessary part of the real deal. Most men with abs spend too much time at the fitness center and is usually stuck on themselves. They crave attention from woman. They walk around in muscle shirts to show off and invite stares. When too many women start gawking, the men have a tendency to take that as open season and stray across the field.
Look at this picture. What a nice body, but he has given it to everyone with eyes. He needs to pull his briefs up just a little. Well, women do the same in bikinis when they have gorgeous bodies. Humans.
Abs are muscles! That's like asking "Do women prefer men with arms"? I think most women prefer a man with abdominal muscles. Even if they didn't they wouldn't find many men without them anyway.
I am sorry if you are the first man with no ab muscles and I have offended you
I would be curious to know how you type though! ;L
Have a nice day
I prefer a healthy man. One who is a little thicker, but not fat. Abs are ok I guess, but they're not what I personally look for.
LOL! I am 56 , I do not look at abs . I look at their minds, manners, kindness and finesse.

Why do some dark skinned men only date light skin women?I'm a young lady and I consider my self brown skinned, but in the winters I get very light. I always find it intriguing when I'm approached by a dark skinned male who only dates lighter skin women, not only does he exclusively date the lighter...
