Will I get more attention from girls if I get muscular? Watch

    At the moment I don't get much attention from girls, just occasionally a girl might come up to me on a night out, but not much. I think my face is average, not ugly but doesn't look amazing either. I'm 6'4, I have some muscle but still look a bit lanky at the moment (203 lbs) I aim to put on about 25 pounds. Will I have girls flocking to me after I build my physique up to something like this: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/i...eiuU0KV-fnJOqI

    In all honesty it probably will, but I get the feeling you'll turn into a whey protein junkie and because some freaky looking muscle monster.

    yes you will get more attention from women if you get muscular. however, the attention will increase exponentially if you improve your social skills, i.e. acting confident around women and in general.

    Now I'm filled with curiousity. What physique do you find attractive for a guy?

    you do know Cesaro took steroids to get that physique? at your height it's hard to look muscular so my advice lift weights if you enjoy it otherwise don't bother

    Where did you get that fact from? And it is possible it just takes much more time than shorter people. 225lbs is where people at 6'4 start looking really big

    Was having this conversation with a group of my friends today, some preferred the big built up muscly types like the one in the picture but about half (myself included) tend to go for lankier guys, dunno why that's just what I seem to be attracted to, definitely doesn't hurt to be toned up though. The most attractive thing in a guy is confidence and sense of humour without a doubt - I'm automatically so much more attracted to someone who can make me laugh. Moral of the story: it's down to personal taste and more about personality than you'd think if it's about more than just attention on a night out

    Mate, as a general rule, a lot of girls don't 'come up' to you in clubs etc. You kinda have to go up to them. Honestly, as girls we often think that if we make the first move we'll look 'desperate' or come off as unattractive. I mean yeah, some girls like muscles, but try and get up the courage to actually approach someone and make the first move. You might be surprised.

    Firstly, if you chase after aesthetics as a pure motif you'll never attain it and most likely quit after couple of weeks just like new year resolutioners.

    Will working out in the gym help you get noticed more by girls? Yes in the respect of having a bigger social presence compared to someone who doesn't life. Will you get girls simply by working out? No, you need to have some game when pulling.

    Assuming you haven't trained ever before and your new to lifting it would probably take you roughly 1 year to get 20-25lb muscle. Your idea of a amazing physique like the one you've linked above is straight sh1t, straight up. I guess the longer you train the more your perspective changes.

    You do know you get protein from most of your food? You can't become a "freaky looking muscle monster" naturally ..... *hands you the rope*. :shoot:

    Idk I don't particularly have a 'type' just maybe someone who looks like they take care of themselves but not to the point where their arms look like they're going to burst out of the shirt sleeves

    Yeah definitely improve your physique. Most girls would prefer a man with good muscles- I myself have started going to the gym to get fitter and to get stronger. Just be as alpha as you can.

    I was more considering the fact he'll start bulking up and keep aiming higher in terms of size; If it's any credit, I did BTEC Sport and know how muscle building works.

    In response to the meme, I actually attend the gym to work on my physique and health.

    So we are essentially speaking someone with more definition than muscle?

    Okay, sorry my bad. I take it back then. :jumphug: ?

    Yeah he probably is though he can roughly eat at maintenance for his first year and still make amazing gains.

    I'm just saying the physique OP wants is quite s... and easily achievable however
    it isn't nowhere near aesthetic.
