    I 've noticed that a lot of people in this forum are skinny. Do you guys look at skinny as some type of ideal?

    I stay skinny because my alternative seems to be simultaneously skinny and fat.

    Not a good look.

    Being skinny, it's just in my "jeans".

    I agree... at first I thought I was just gonna stay skinny until I started getting a slight beer gut while my arms and legs remained twig-like. Very unattractive. If it wasn't for school (at least that's my excuse) I'd actually use the gym membership I pay for and make myself bigger overall.

    I think the ideal man is low fat but medium build as far as muscle. Think greek statuary. An example is Randy Moss.

    Just my opinion. Good news is different women like different kinds of guys so there is room for all types.

    I'm pretty fit and I definitely wouldn't count myself as "skinny". Not a muscle-bound hulk in the least bit, but I'm 5"11 170lbs.

    I think the point he was trying to make is that a lot of you are quite thin, which I've also noticed.

    So have I. I'm one of them, and I hate it. Why some idealize it, I don't know.

    In terms of body, I say that Brad Pitt is ideal. While he is very cut, his frame is still quite skinny.

    Skinny just kind of happens, and it seems like skinny guys are into clothes more than big dudes.

    lol.

    By the way, not to say that I'm into guys, but skinny guys definitely do not look better than "non-skinny" guys.

    I'd say medium, but in good shape, would probably be ideal.
