    Meh, i'm too busy studying and/or in a coffee shop to be bothered with something as trivial as lifting weights. I'd rather exercise my mind than my body.

    As a guy who has never once been to the gym in his life I can say that it has never been a point of concern for girls I've been with. Ok so my body is pretty meh, I'm not fat, I have a really good lucking face and I'm tall. I dont need to go to the gym.

    I cant afford it and I hate exercise. I dont need to overcompensate.

    Well actually you stand to gain a lot, in terms of mental ability (greater cerebral blood flow), from exercise.

    Doesn't bother me. I know plenty of guys that don't go to the gym, and they are still pretty good looking. As long as they are in shape and still relatively attractive, I don't see how going to the gym would make a difference. I'm not particularly into huge muscles anyway, don't get me wrong, I like tone and some muscle, but I've seen lots of guys who go to the gym that have just taken it too far.

    They're probably either virgins, or haven't got time for that gym 'tosh' because they're too busy knocking one out over the conservatives.
    Wat.

    Anyway OP, I don't go to the gym; there are other forms of exercising if people choose to. I played football up until recently. I don't think anyone would care unless you turn into a fat blob.

    I find people who go to the gym very often a little bit pathetic really.
    Define very often.

    This has the potential to be the dumbest thing I've read all week.

    I don't go to the gym. I bought gym equipment and have it in my room at home. Not as high quality as in the gym, but better than nothing. Reason for that is I work 5 days a week and can't go gym those days. So, often do some exercise and workouts at home. In the long term it is also cheaper for someone who is not that much into building muscles, but into just staying fit.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I have my moments to.

    You really have too much time on your hands if you sit around pondering such pointless questions as this. Who even thinks of this crap anyway? Girls don't give a **** about such minor details and if they do, they're not worth knowing as they will be the same as same as you, full of idiocy.

    Getting buff/toned doesn't help you with the ladies as much as you'd have thought. I've known guys who've put on loads of muscle, but fared no better with girls than they did before.

    People who don't go to the gym don't necessarily not care about image, they're just happy enough the way they are or aren't wanting/willing to change it simply for other people's visual pleasure...

    Just wondering. Does it put you off that a guy never goes to the gym and pulls weights/works out? The guy is not fat or anything, he just doesn't have the typically buffed up gym body and would rather spend his time doing other things.
    Well what does this guy who doesn't go to the gym do in terms of activity?

    Are you talking about a guy who is simply unathletic and doesn't do any regular physical activity or a guy who just doesn't go to the gym and stays active otherwise?

    Most gyms are full of wannable meatheads rather than actually "buffed up" people and even then, a lot of the latter are quite unfit and unathletic and simply work on the beach muscles.

    I personally know a lot of girls who are much more into the athletic look rather than the large biceps but skinny legs look that a lot of wannabe meatheads have. To be honest, it looks pretty stupid.

    I've had cubital tunnel syndrome since last July after joining a gym and overdoing it for a week. Do not join the gym!

    If you go to the gym, you're more likely to be in better shape and look better, so obviously it makes a difference, to initial attraction at least.
