trend towards being a skinny guy? - Page 2

post #16 of 103
If that's the case OP, my 120 lb ripped ass should be in high demand. Which, it isn't. Heh. Not saying I'm strong at all. I can only squat 90 lbs 5x5 currently, but I have such a small frame and started out struggling with the 45 lb bar, so going up to 90 totally shredded by body. I like it. Unfortunately I don't attract many hot chicks, just tons of gay men.

As someone who lifts a lot and is fairly strong (no e-brag because I'm not that great), it really frustrates me when girls assume that someone is stronger than me just because he's taller and has a 6 pack even though he has 9 inch biceps and chicken legs.

For example, just recently, a few girls described this guy as "muscular":

ARE YOU SHITTING ME (no homo for posting this, not that there is anything wrong with being gay btw)?

Women are stupid. They know nothing about the male build. In the same way that it's very difficult for me to determine how much a girl weighs by sight, females have no idea how much we weigh, what our bone structure is like, or what our body composition is.

Just ignore them and concentrate on working out because it is an ends unto itself. What could be more fun than getting huge and jacked?

more money = more women.

since it's hard to beat genetics, try working on fatten up your bank account instead.

Always solid advice.

OP, you're talking about girls that are drooling over celebrities. Those of which happen to be skinny. The reality is when they see a famous guy, they want him...it's really got little to do with body shape. Look at Kevin James --I'd hardly call him skinny & toned, yet gorgeous woman fawn over him. With us ordinary folk, I rarely see the muscular & ripped guy having a hard time with the ladies. Work on your confidence more, you'll be fine.

what about hugh jackman or daniel craig. when daniel craig was first picked for bond everyone was ripping him for being "ugly" or some shit. then he got jacked for the first movie and then girls were creaming their panties over him.

Speaking from personal experience - and personal experience gained from using online dating sites - most girls outside of the Jersey Shore and MTV reality shows don't find very muscular guys attractive. That's a fallacy promoted by "fitness companies." The same people that sell protein powder and creatine to teenagers by showing guys who have taken an entire pharmacy-load of steroids, growth hormones, and diuretics. They do generally like a guy who's physically bigger than them - especially in height. And being lean is nice, but not a necessity. I'd say that most women would go for a guy built like a professional tennis player over a football player or bodybuilder any day. Matthew McConaughey doesn't get roles because of his awesome acting ability. It's because a ton of women find him really attractive.

I'm a definition "skinny guy" (6'2" and 165 lbs) and the attention I get is mostly determined by the woman. Fat girls scoff at me, curvier girls think I need to eat a pizza, and the skinny girls I like think I'm just right.

I mean, when I look at who girls find attractive nowadays (Zac Efruit, The Jonas Brothers, some skater named Ryan Sheker or something like that), those guys have almost no muscle and just have low body fat. Is it just me, or is anyone else noticing this as well?

it is the best look right now. musclebound look is like 90s. (and yes, i am one of those used to be musclebound guys).

you'll find alot of hostility and ad hominen on here and on this thread (predictably) from these guys if they are smaller-minded.

I have a lot of female friends who actually say they can't stand an excessively muscular physique.

If you needed any proof, your list of celebrities is pretty much spot on.

basically being a fat bastard will never be in style - look the way you want to look without being a fat bastard and you'll be fine, whether you decide to go the skinny or muscular route

I think the muscular but not the hulkish look of the Schwarzenegger is the way to go. Daniel Craig, Gerald Butler, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds are all guys who are all very muscular, but they stay lean. You can tell they go to the gym to stay fit, but they do not over do it.

they are likely "overdoing it" by average people standards, which is why their bodies are not average. You aren't going to look like ahhnuld or ronnie coleman by "overdoing it" in the gym alone.

No, but it's still possible to 'overdo it'.
