Guys aren't shallow or picky - it's girls who make them out to be watch

    What's the logic is '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 could actually claim this girl to be on the big size, you'll be surprised.

    If you believe that every guy isn't shallow/picky, then you really are an imbecile. Pointless thread.
    tiny guys, who are to scared to be a man probably :dontknow:

    e: she's ****ing hot

    Everyone is shallow and picky and so they should be. (OK - maybe not shallow, but nothing wrong with being picky IMO.)

    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
    Thats a stupid thing to say.

    If a boy moans about something (in my case my bf wasn't happy because he wasn't muscly enough in comparison to his rugby team) i said he was perfect, he moaned told me i was lying got annoyed.
    If i agreed he wouldn't have been too happy either

    it works both ways

    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.
    In some country size 12 is actually fat and nothing force you to be attracted by fat girls. Of course personality is important but you have to be somehow sexually attracted by your date.

    I think it doesn't have that much to do with gender, but more how attractive/likeable you are. More attractive people have more choice, whether male or female.

    Having aesthetic preferences isn't being shallow, ****'s sake. So a lot of guys don't like fat chicks. So what? A lot of girls don't like fat guys. Deal with it.
    When you've got guys who think that a size 12 is too large, that's not being shallow, that's being idiotic.

    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.
    I think the buzz word here is 'settle for'!!! No girl wants to be settled for, just because the ultimate girl is unachievable!!!!

    The difference is that most girls I know dont 'settle' for guys with a nice personality and average looks, they usually look for a nice guy and if he's gourgeous, well, thats always handy too!!!

    My ideal guy is someone caring, loving, fun, good humour, nice eyes... Ive found that so theres no threat to him, I didnt just settle for him because I couldnt get anyone better!!!

    But if he settled for me and desires a big breasted, blonde haired lassy... how can I ever feel content in the relationship? He might find her one day and then where would I be?

    i didnt mention say that guys didnt do it at all. so how can it be a stupid thing to say when it applies to both girls and boys?

    anyway, what i said applies to boys too, if they sit and moan about themselves and expect anyone to talk them from it and reject it, it just isnt worth bothering replying at all. you just cant win no matter the case.

    This and This. First of all, people seem to be confused over the meaning of the word 'shallow'. It's basically somebody who only cares about superficial things like looks/money/fame and does not consider personality at all when looking for a partner. Both men AND women usually go for somebody that they find attractive, but if that person is a **** then they won't bother. That is not the same as being shallow. And it doesn't only apply to either one gender or the other.

    Also the reason girls are so insecure about the way they look is not because of men, it's because every day we have airbrushed, unrealistic pictures of models shoved in our faces, in advertising, music videos and on TV. 'Unattractive' people are publicly mocked. Just look at how people reacted to Susan Boyle when she first came on stage. The media consists of both men and women, again it is not a gender issue.

    But cheers anyway bro'

    And yes I understand many girls don't know this, I get your point, but at the same time y'all need to get it into your heads that not ALL girls think this of guys, not all girls are this obsessive - albeit the majority are but y'know.

    That's nothing compared to what women write in the height threads. Nothing. I bet that most of those women would rather get raped than have a short boyfriend.
    Anyone who thinks that men are just as shallow as women are, or swallower, deserves to be whacked in the face with a baseball bat.

    They're probably lying to you.
