    Given the amount of androgynous, tight jeans wearing, wierd salon hair having creatures that lurk the streets , it's not a suprise that women are not into manly men.

    I just need him to be "manly" at heart - physical attributes are a bonus to me, who cares if the person that I love isn't the greatest fittest guy (eg. <insert hot actor's name>), he'll be the best in my eyes and that's all I care about really.

    Hard for me to say without sounding arrogant.. but i'm told quite cute. Fairly attractive. Not fat, leaning towards skinny. Just the babyface makes me look quite young. I kinda feel like if i try to act manly, it wont match how i look and i'll look like some wannabe 'lad'.

    to be honest, I've not dated a boy who's been described as "cute" but I have dated someone who's been described as "sweet", yet I do know a friend who is currently dating someone to your similar description so there are girls who dates boys like you - so I needn't worry:cool:

    Relative to older looking guys, you're screwed until you get older because women prefer older looking men. However, in the long run baby-faced is better.

    Don't try to act manly... one has comic nightmares of the sort of things you might do. just don't be bubbly. some girls do go for young looking guys.

    I had a baby-face... when I was 18 I looked 14 years old - true story. didn't stop me getting female attention, although it's true I didn't get a girlfriend in my first year at uni.

    Hey.
    Whenever I see girls around my age (I'm 18) with guys, they always seem to be with older guys/ or guys that are fairly manly.
    Is being baby-faced and quite bubbly a turn off for girls? I'm not saying camp or anything, just not a 'mans man'. Just a bit more feminine than usual.
    I kinda get the feeling girls wouldnt want to be seen with this kinda guy.

    P.s dont answer based on principal, answer based on what you would actually do. brutal honesty. cheers.
    NO YOU'RE WRONG!!!

    Honestly, thats the kind of guys many people I know dig. Combined with a bubbly personality you'd make a lovely boyfriend. Maybe the people you've seen are just...like that. Or you're just slightly paranoid. Either way, baby-faced is not a bad thing at all and fits in to LOADS of peoples taste. Inc myself.

    well, because girls mature faster than boys, getting an older man increase the chances of him being as mature as her if not more.

    im attracted to guys that are at least 2 years older than me :/

    My friend has a really manly chavvy boyfriend and he actually sent her a text that said "I'm going to the gym to get hench for my baby" :rofl:

    Anyways, I don't mind if a guy isn't really tough and "blokey" but baby faces do NOT appeal to me whatsoever. Zac Efron looks about 12 though and loads of my friends like him, so I'm clearly the odd one out.

    Above all I like a guy who is himself, so don't go around trying to be what you think other people want. Just be yourself.

    I personally do prefer masculine men though. A guy who can fix things, pick up heavy stuff and doesn't grow his hair long like a ponce. :sexface:

    Girly looking guys like Zac Efron and co are just... odd. They're cute, like how children are cute, but I seriously don't see how I could be attracted to them. :lolwut:

    LMFAO!!!!, that was actually an excellent video and so true, the part about the "gigs", "male leggings" "20/20 frames" and taking pictures in the park really cracked me up, and that video reminds me exactly of when I went the other day to River Island and the thing that struck me was that their range was progressively getting more and more effeminate and it's seems as if it catching on to a lot of stores, you can't walk two seconds without seeing one of the tight douche v-neck tops :rolleyes:

    personally, no I wouldn't date a guy would looked pretty baby faced but then, it'd be weird cos I'm quite 'womanly', as it were.

    If I looked like I was 12, yeah why not!

    Depends on how feminine he is exactly. Tbh, my boyfriend's not exactly a 'manly man' but he's not extremely feminine either. He's still protective but he's genuinely nice to everyone he meets, talks a lot, is very empathetic, which some people may find rather feminine but it's just the right amount. He still prefers to come home after work and just chill with a beer and would much rather be at the pub than, say, shopping :p:

    Looks wise - my cheeks are probably more defined than his are and his face has softer features but he still looks like a man

    tl;dr - it's not a problem really

    It's embarrassing but as time goes on they've become proud of their effeminate geekiness because they aren't getting beaten up about it any more like in primary school, the video even points out that they used to get bullied about it :rofl: I've never seen a successful person dressed like that who works in a proper job outside of the fashion industry so I'm guessing they'll either end up dressing normally, go on the dole or a few will carry on and work in fashion.
