    More proof that the modeling world exists within the realms of the Twilight Zone.

    Meanwhile, here in the real world where women like guys who look like men.....

    What I gather from women:
    - guys who are skinny can look "cool" if they dress appropriately to body type.
    - guys who are jacked look hot.

    It's the difference between appreciation of style and attitude, and sheer sex appeal. And I have to tell you, the jacked frat guys I know (who dress in A&F uniform, by and large) get a lot more ass than the emaciated Slimane clones I know.

    It's getting better though and nothing a quick trip to the tailor couldn't fix. I support this trend...because I'm 5'6" 110lbs.

    Most women don't want a guy they outweigh. Just saying.

    If a girl weighs more than 155, would most guys want them?

    Yeah I'm 5'-7" 122 lbs. I would kill for another 10 lbs. At the same time though, I'm lean and cut for my size / weight.

    Indeed, that's why I really don't like to date chicks that are within 2 inches of me (wearing heels) and weigh past 100 lbs. So the thinner they are, the more I tend to like them.

    Some girls are naturally thin, just like some of them are naturally fat. I never mentioned, nor advocated drug use.

    And damn, she looks pissed.
