    Trawling through these threads it would appear that the ideal guy is either:

    a) Skinny

    b) With a bit of podge

    Yet no females actually seem to go for the 'muscular look' anymore. I can see how "Bodybuilding size" could be very off putting, but aren't girls programmed to go for the tall, broad, muscly types ahead of either scrawny or very average body types?

    Obviously, guys so obsessed with their physique are likely to be off putting for their lifestyle choice, but I don't really understand why girls on TSR seem to be so put off by six packs, pecs and biceps which all equate to a protective and healthy human.

    Anyone with a love for muscles left on here?

    Yes... me over in the corner here
    It's not a deal-breaker, but there's nothing wrong with muscle really, only when as you said, it gets to manic body building type. Then it makes me want to hurl.
    I wouldn't say girls are programmed to go for that type, and obviously looks aren't everything.
    So, yeah, muscular guys can be attractive

    "Ew"

    "Yes, I like a well tonned man"

    "Not much tbh, I like skinny guys"

    "Muscular men are oldschool"

    "Ewx2"

    Anonymous: "Hell yes"

    "I dont see why guys are so obsessed with muscle so much :confused:"

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I see some really muscular guys as being a bit narcissistic and vain (you know the type, always at the gym, obsessing over their biceps) which is why they can be a turn off.

    However, that's nothing to do with the muscles themselves. Muscles are good. Muscular guys are attractive. It's a guy who's obsessed with having muscles that isn't.

    Actually there's plenty on here who do like muscle, it's just that there's a limit on how much of it is good looking. It is possible to go too far with the muscle-building. A happy medium is all good - I like visible muscles, but once you go into mega-bodybuilder territory, then it doesn't look good anymore.

    This is the first I've heard of this
    A guy, for me, has at least got to have strong arms But preferably a rugby type body as long as they aren't fat.

    I think this is the general outlook on muscle. Good to take care of yourself but not to go too overboard.
