Do women really like tall, dark and muscular men?
So many guys are out there trying to beef up in the gym for that cute young thing, but do they really like hard bodies?
I thought I had a certain type...dark hair and blue eyes. Well, my husband is a blue eyed blonde. We were friends first many years ago, so his looks mean nothing to me. I always think he looks good no matter what.
Sure, they may be nice to look at, and we will admire. But the kind of man a woman wants to be with, and have a relationship with, is the one who treats her the best, and he might not be the tall, dark muscular man at all.
yes! but it depends on the man as well. personality is the most important
I would have to agree with Strictlydating. We all admire attractiveness in the opposite sex. But, like most women, at the end of the day, the thing that women find most attractive in a man (or potential mate), is how well he treats her, his overall character, and his willingness to commit and bond to her.
I think it depends on the woman -- for me, add in hairy along with that description and that's my type . Other women like the willowy guys that look like little boys, while still others like the clean-shaven guy with well-chiseled features. That said, I have to agree with other responses here that looks are secondary to character. My own husband got his "pretty young thing" before either of us even knew what the other looked like, we met while playing free Texas Hold 'Em on Myspace .
Hard bodies--nooooo. Scary and the majority look super unnatural looking. Lean and muscular is perfect, not beefed up.
As a guy, I think the liking may just fade away if it is based on the feature of a person.
The liking will be more lasting if both have the same feeling and understanding through communication rather than just the outside appearance.
What I have learned is that women doesn't really care whether your buff, dark, good looking, has lots of money or even has good hair. In fact, women find bald men more attractive. I don't why though.
This is not 100% true. Choice vary person to person. Yes but muscular and tall men attracts more women. I heard American ladies prefer black men for romance but in India, women prefer white, muscular tall man.
Wel it depends upon every women some prefer lean or muscular ,dark or white every one has differnt taste ...
No, believe me I've tried to be everything that women are SUPERPOSED to like and it doesn't add a thing. Personally I thing it's just the personality of the individual that is important.
This is not completly true. peoples choice vary, but muscular, fair and tall men attracts more women compared to dark men.
Thank goodness, I was able to find one who was content with an average-height guy, who is stereotypical European coloring... and who might have some muscles, somewhere... but they're not obvious........
I'm not a cute young thing... I like a muscular body... it's NICE to look at!
however, it's also worth noting that he has to be able to hold a decent conversation about more than muscle development!
No I do not think so, I sure don't like them. If I had a boyfriend that was muscular and had the perfect body then I would feel even worse about my body. I like a guy with a little chub. I also don't care about the height and skin color.
I don't like the big muscle look! I think an average looking guy suits me way better b/c maybe everyone else won't want him!! Allll mine!
I don't look or stare so who knows?
Honestly, while men who are tall, dark and muscular are easy on the eyes, I really feel like that is not who many women end up with. A lot of guys like that are cocky and think because of that exact saying, they can get with any woman they want! This is an obvious end to any serious relationship. Not to say men like this are heartless, selfish liars and cheaters. I have just always thought the guy who wasn't the obvious first choice, were the ones who could melt our hearts. Anyway, eventually all of that toned up body is going away when they are older. What can they offer then?
You know the answer to this one, come on now. Every woman likes different things. I can only speak from my own tastes; I like bald men with red haired beards or goatees, light eyes and tattoos. I don't like buff bodies or hard abs. I prefer a pooh bear belly, but strong legs and yes, must be tall. But that's my taste. If they look evil, I will look twice. It's my own taste. But I have friends that really like very skinny men and some that like very heavy men. There is no one answer.
I think that most people have a certain type when it comes to appearances, I like my men tall and muscly, certainly, but I prefer paler guys with lighter hair. My best friend on the other hand prefers her guys to be extremely skinny, with longer, unkempt hair and a kind of hipster sense of style.
When it comes down to it though, looks are fleeting and hardly the most important thing. If I meet a guy who's funny, sweet, intelligent and interesting then his looks, a bonus though they might be, are hardly the most important thing and are sure to pale in comparison to his personality.
Look at the greatest pickup artist of all time: Neil Strauss. He is a scrawny, pale, balding man, yet with his skills of seduction he can get any woman he wants.
Maybe , but they are more interested in a confident man who will take care of his family.
For me its a no no ......i would prefer a brain rather the just a showpiece. A nice personality with sparkling intense eyes what does the trick to me always.
Depends on how muscular because some people just look too outrageous.I think very few women like seeing a man with plenty of belly fat because it looks horrible, to be honest.On the other hand, a muscular man with absolutely no common sense and brains whatsoever, is just a bad option for most of us.
I would pick a little bit of both body and brains as well as a great personality.
I'm a woman and I've never cared whether a man was beefed up or not. In fact, I've never had a beefed-up boyfriend. Maybe I found that those men were more into trying to impress everyone and that they were trying to attract uber fit women. Hard body women and hard body men might be trying to attract each other.
The truth is that there is someone out there who doesn't care, but looks for other qualities in a person. Hardened criminals can have hard bodies and attract size 2 women.
Is it really that healthy to work out too much?
Do men like busty blondes? lol
I honestly could care less as long as they're in decent shape and health. That doesn't mean they can't be a little overweight because a little meat is sexy. And I do think tall men are hot, but I'm with a guy that's not that tall so obviously when I chose who I wanted to be with, none of that mattered.
Some women do... some do not. I do not. I can't stand this type actually. I have a preference for a guy who is athletic and lean. When your pecs are bigger than my breasts, that's a problem. I don't want to feel like the man will crush me. I like the athletic look that when he is wearing clothes he still retains a slim look. See: http://leancouture.files.wordpress.com/ … s-male.jpg for example of what I mean.
Every women has different tastes. Some may like it some may not it just depends on her and what her preferences are.
Yes. The guy in the photo looks just perfect. I don't see why any woman wouldn't want to at least talk to him.

Are women really worth the same pay as men?Most of the women that I work with are less dependable, absent more often, get pregnant, worry about their looks, have relationship problems, cry at work if something goes wrong, and on and on. Do they really deserve the same pay?

Hey there,Might seem like an odd question to some (maybe all) of you, but seriously, how can a male not get confused by this stuff one sees and hears every day around him? I'm a guy who's really not into all the "bi-curious"/bisexual stuff women seem to have nowadays, I just want a truly...
