    sure, guys watch porn and they say they want a model type body with no cellulite, flat stomach, big boobs, big bum and so on. we joke about it with our mates and we joke about it a bit in front of girls too.

    in reality, we will settle for much less. we HAVE TO settle for much less. if guys are just a bit picky or shallow, they will get nothing. this is in stark contrast to girls, who can be incredibly picky and shallow and still get a decent guy.

    girls always complain that they are too fat and that guys won't like them because their breasts are too small, bum is too flat etc. etc. (I should know - several female friends I have had have asked me if their breasts are big enough for guys or if they look too fat and so on). girls bring these problems on themselves and pretend that guys are shallow and picky over these things when we are FAR FROM IT.

    get that into your head girls.

    True

    True

    this is in stark contrast to girls, who can be incredibly picky and shallow and still get a decent guy.

    Girls hold all the power here. Don't get it twisted that guys have any say in who they get. They don't. They only get the choice afforded to them by the girls who deem them worthy enough. Not the other way round.

    I think some guys can be shallow, the 'Fat' threads on TSR are quite shocking. Some would rather die than date a fat chick. A size 12 is fat to some of them apparently :rolleyes:

    The girls I know care more about the personality than looks. Looks is just a bonus.

    Yes, that's exactly what I'm trying to say.

    I'm glad you agree with me.

    Any girl who does the whole "are my boobs too small?" stuff isnt worth your time, because if you say "no" she will claim your lying or just ignore your answer, but if you say "yes".....well its the end of the world isnt it really? :P

    You do know that they're all joking just to troll you/annoy you? :rolleyes: It's pretty damn obvious isn't it.

    I don't know any guys in real life who thinks size 12 is fat.

    Your logic is awful.

    They're all just virgins trying to sound hard. They would run and hide if a girl actually spoke to them in real life. I don't know anyone in real life who would think size 12 is unattractive.

    The hottest of the hot guys definitely have the upper hand in who they get. I was in love with a guy where most girls who knew him were crazy about him. I would of only settled for him back then but considering he didnt want me I prefered to be lonely. So really guys are shallow and picky but most are willing to lower their standards when they cant get their ideal whereas most girls will not.

    Yes, but the power definitely switches from women to men as people get older though.

    Same here, big bum or big boobs is quite as much of a turn on as normal/proportionate

    If this was the case any man not looking like a model would struggle to find a relationship. This is not the case.

    Standards is simple. If you're the kind of person, regardless of gender, who attracts people that are physically attractive, you will rarely settle for anyone who is not physically attractive.

    OP, just because the amazingly hot girl doesnt want to date you, and you think its because you're ugly, doesn't mean its how girls are.

    If anything, I would say its the other way around. Girls have to try harder to appear physically attractive in order to attract guys, whereas guys can rely on their personality and humour to attract a girl (there's less emphasis on our looks when it comes to attraction).

    What's the logic in 'pretending' a girl is fat and complain when a girl thinks she's too fat? I'm pretty sure a lot of them that stated that they wouldn't date a fat girl aren't joking. Some guys actually claim this girl to be on the big side, you'll be surprised.

    If you believe that every guy isn't shallow/picky, then you really are an imbecile. Pointless thread.
