Do any girls like big bulky guys these days?Watch this thread
It appears to me that almost all girls go for toned, fairly slim guys these days. I'm wondering if there are many girls out there who like this big bulky look?
Please don't bring personality into this by the way. This is purely on looks.
What do you believe will be the answers from the girls on this site? And how do you think this will differ from the general female population?
I think girls from the general population would like both toned guys and muscular. With 60-40 split maybe.
And before someone jumps down my throat. This is based strictly on what I have observed I have not carried out a strict randomised control trial to determine this.
When I say I "bulked up", I put on way too much fat. But still, I'd say:-
Toned/ripped - good
Stocky - bad
I obviously don't speak for the whole female population though.
I think there's a stereotype going around that "muscular guys are vain/shallow," same as the "pretty girls are *****y" stereotype, which is a shame really. Lifting shows you have self-discipline and respect your body - a lot of my female friends won't touch lifters with a bargepole, but go for "edgy" guys who do drugs and smoke as it apparently makes them more down to earth, which I think is weird.
I prefer a man to look strong, have some meat on him and I don't mind a little tummy as long as he's in good shape. I don't like overly 'pumped-up' muscles though, especially not with the veins popping through. Some men look like they're just naturally 'meaty' without having to bulk up. Men like Clive Owen and Craig Bierko have great physiques.
I am not into skinny guys and I don't care much about abs or pecs.
