When talking about female attractiveness specifically. It seems what men are attracted/turned on by to is often different from what girls think is pretty but women don't seem to get this.

Yes, I think so.
'Men are from mars and women are from venus'.

Of course all individuals have their own beauty standards and attraction preferences.
But I think that most heterosexual guys and gay women will have very different opinions & preferences as regards beauty standards, sexual attraction elements towards women and relationship dealbreakers when seeking a hookup or serious gf.

i think so!

everyone perceives beauty differently, so i cannot generalise and say “all men like ...” because it simply wouldn’t be true.

i think men and women are so different and society has picked at parts of both men and women that we “should” find attractive. people grow up with the stigma of women having to look a certain way and it’s the same for men!

I think men and women perceive attractiveness differently, but every individual also has their own taste

That's a major difference you see, men wanting curves but women coveting skinniness.

Yh i think this works vice versa too, most guys wanna go to the gym and have massive muscles but personally I'm not that interested in super buff guys - just me orrrr?
Obviously body type is definitely not everything and no one should be basing their own body confidence off of what they think others will be attracted to as there is always someone that will find you attractive

And yet most girls prefer the dad bod where he is even a bit podgy. brad pitt in troy would be a turn off for me, I'd prefer chris pratt in parks and rec.

Lmfao that sums up Turkey for you. Men there are very open, also paradoxically really conservative. Same with Egypt, love staring, touching and general creepiness but their personal attitudes towards sex are draconion.

Literally in front of cameras their like that....have you seen it in real life. Videos/TV/movies are all faked.....that could just be for clout. Lets be real, we dont know who girls like so lets leave it at that.

Your case has gaping holes, fix it then come back

Everyone regardless of gender perceives attractiveness differently. 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' and whatnot..

That was not staged.. He was working out in the gym doing one of his videos (he does a lot of fitness videos), some random girl saw him and started oogling, her bf saw ...and got so scared that he immediately shuttled her away. lmao

When have you ever seen or heard anything that comes anything remotely close to that involving a guy with a dad bod?

everyone knows dad bods never get girls acting anywhere close to that.

Girls like guys with dad bods not for their bods but for what they represent. Maturity. Bicep guys just look like gym rats, like sure it's hot and all but you obviously spend your life in the gym all the time and with that comes a perception of vanity and immaturity.

Dad bod represent complacency,mediocrity and arguably laziness...

especially if you're under 30.....
Or laid back, mature, not concerned with self-image and having other responsibilities. You can swing it either way really. If I see people that have lots of muscle and they aren't training for a sport or got it from working a serious physical job I just think what a fluff they might be trying to impress other people a little too hard.

All i'm saying is that girls may claim they prefer dad bods but you never see them swoon or anything, like you see it times with guys with six packs ....so i don't think in reality it's all that true....

People perceive attractiveness differently. I don’t think you can generalise to all men and all women.

Plus, women might not want to dress/present in a way men find attractive!

Very true, Dad bod is not someone to scream and swoon over he's someone to have a normal conversation with, with the potential of becoming the father of your children . The gym fanatic look is impressive and not something you see everyday, but you can't take him seriously.
