  • I prefer guys with muscles for sure.
  • Haha how did I know that was coming? There never seem to be as many surveys of what women like physically in aman as what men like physically in a woman. From my own experience it seems to me that younger women (teenagers, early twenties) seem to be more inclined towards skinnier, slightly more androgynous typoes, whereas older women seem to go for a slightly bulkier look. One thing I do know is that very few women find excessive muscle (like Mr Universe) sexy. Personally, I tend to be inclined towards men who are on the larger side (insert your own joke here), although in my teens I preffered smaller guys, but really, it depends on the individual guy and how well he carries it off. I guess any shape and size CAN be attractive if its presented well and has a good personality to go with it.
  • Women really don't care mich about fat or skinny. Just as long as the man is financially well off. They go for the comfort and prestige of wealth and position before anything else.
  • please don't be too skinny or too muscular... just be normal, ok? And by normal i mean you should have a body somehow close to that of Matthew McConaughey ... Just kidding:) Seriously, if I had to choose, I'd prefer muscular ones.
  • I like something in the middle, but I'd choose a small framed man if I had to one of those.
  • I would have thought women go for what is in the inside, as opposed to looks. Besides, i am sure women have different tastes in a man's looks anyway.
  • well having muscles always worked for me..lol
  • i personally dislike muscles.
  • I like muscly men but it really depends. If i find an attractive guy with a great personality, I won't turn him down just because he's skinny or not muscly!
  • I take whatever happens to be attached to the man I love. When it comes to "eye candy", I like bald men who have a little more weight on them than normal, but that is just my personal preference that counts for very little.
  • i think men think all us women want is a man with a fat wallet lolol that is so untrue, i would rate a genuine kind man way above a rich one any day as to build it depends on the person he is far more but i generally prefer a man who is not too skinny. but if i met a really sweet skinny guy and i got to know him ...well who knows.
  • I cannot answer for all women, but I personally like men that are very strong, in a lumberjack kind of way (if that makes sense) Broad shoulders, big arms, rough hands, strong back and pectoral muscles, and big legs. However, the muscle has to be from WORK, not Working Out. Those are two entirely different types of strong. I like men to work themselves strong. Then, it doesn't matter if they put on weight, that just makes them more snuggly. ^_^
  • There are many women with many different opinions. No one can say women like skinny men or women like muscular men. We all have our own individual taste. I personally like a little bit of meat. I prefer a little muscle and meat. ;)
  • If you're going on looks alone I like my men like I like my horses. Well muscled, but not overly so, with good confirmation. You know good structure to the face, straight limbs, strong back, and a well proportined rump. However if there's nothing up stairs well forget then.
  • How about love handles...........(I really like what I've read) ThAnKs LaDiEs!!!!
  • I like skinniness, myself. :)
  • My preference is a tall-ish, teddy bear-ish kind of guy. I have never been into the muscle man thing.
  • well to be honest wid ya if a man can make u laff and love you more than anyone in the world and make every moment ya spend wid em the best then who cares if they r skinny or muscley!
  • I like skinny men, they look more reserved. ( just my opinion )
  • I like muscly =]♥ Its sexy.
  • some happy medium in the middle. toned is pretty good!! usually just if a guy plays a lot of sport it helps him to look good!! :)
  • i like both.
  • Neither. Skinny is kinda awkward, and you can definitely be too muscly. I prefer a little bit of squishiness, it's comfy. :D
  • the love of my life is 6'1" and 150 pounds...I love tall skinny guys
  • I'm attracted to healthy, fit men with muscles (but not excessive muscles). Just enough to show he works at staying fit. Of course, it would be nice if he could lift me! It's notable, however, that I've also had a soft spot for a few softer guys. Personality, eyes, and other nice attributes can sway a gal from her norm.
  • I'm very slim, I once went out with a boy even thinner than myself and I felt rather self conscious. But on teh otehr hand, I find men who are really muscly a bit scary, like they could just use their strength to get whatever tyhey want.. (and why do they have to be that muscly in the first place?)A little bit of muscle's good though... So just average sized males please:)
  • they don't have to be muscly, but definately not skinny. That is a massive turn OFF, they must have some meat on them, I don't want to be hanging onto a bag of bones!
  • Depends on the woman in question.
  • a little of both, not too muscley and not to skinny, bit much to ask I guess??
  • Muscly men!!!
  • I like in between men (no pun intended) :)
  • I love skinny guys. I dont like muscles.
  • women like different types, I prefer an average size guy, I dont like overly muscled guys.
  • I like both, I've dated both! On the one hand, I am really skinny, so I like it when guys are skinny because we have a connection there (and you can see their muscles way better even when they don't workout!). But at the same time, it's cool to think about guys being able to bench press like 3 of me at the same time. And I also like.... what's the politically correct term "chubbier" guys because I feel protected when i'm with them, and that feels real GOOD. I guess what I am trying to say is, I'll take anything, lol
  • i think inbetween is nice: not muscular but not stick thin... i hope that makes since...
  • In general, I think women like toned men: not skinny, but not those who look like body builders with very oily skin either.
  • As longs as he is tallish (for me personally) it doesn't matter... but if i had to pick i'd say skinny.
  • well.... muscles, to me, are gross. meatheads...ew. skinny guys are very sexy. ;)
  • I like them to have muscles.
  • That depends on a woman's choice. Some like one, some like the other.
  • I like My BF. 6"8. Muscles, and lots of them. Pure sexy. hehehe
  • I like skinny guys Think pete doherty skinny :D And thats the kind of skinny i like Infact just think pete doherty and thats the kind of guy i would go for ;)
  • MUSCLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 (not that i'm shallow or anything)
  • MUSCLES!!! MMMMMMmmmmm! :D
  • I am skinny 6' 2" 175lbs. I now enjoy my skinny build. I was teased ny my two brothers and parents to the point of cruelty for being skinny. In high school, i weighed only 140bs at the same height as i an now. My dad is tall and skinny and he was thought by his skinny father to hate his build which he passed to me. Once i got clean and sober 22 years ago, I started to enjoy being skinny. The skinny names don't even bother me anymore. I laugh at them now. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
  • I think women are less superficial than men. I think that they love men who are kind and thoughtful. If you are skinny and loving most women will accept you being skinny due to liking your personality. Women don't seem to be caught in the macho trap us men are trained to get caught up in.
  • I like skinny guys (like that guy from Buckcherry).
  • Self Acceptance is the key. I now love being tall and skinny where for many years I hated being skinny.
  • It doesnt really matter to me. I like a sense of humor myself. Lookin back, I guess I've more so gone for the guy that had more meat on his bones, but never any muscles really.
  • in my experience younger girls go for the muscly type (woohoo for me i guess) and most people tend to like defined ab muscles (6pack) but then again its all down to personal choice.. obviously peronality always plays a role but generally for a fling or a one night stand ive noticed a distinct liking of larger, broader more defined guys.. but im sure its different to everyone and especially in different countries etc.etc..
  • you know it really depends on the person
  • I like men in all different shapes and sizes and I am a 20 year old female. I would say it is totally personal preference.
  • depends on the woman and what she finds more attractive.
  • I appreciated Shelly's comments about personal growth. There is no perfect build. The key in life is enjoying what you have and making the best of it. God made me tall and skinny and now I try to make the best of it and enjoy it.
  • I like muscly men myself!
  • I personally like a mixture of both. I find professional weight lifters muscles repulsive. I find guys attractive when they are skinny but still have a nice set of guns.
  • For me personally, I don't base my choice in men by their body type. Though when I think on it, I've been with more "skinny" guys than muscular or heavy set ones but I think it is more a coincidence since I didn't particularly seek them out based on their bodies.
  • Im not a woman, but I like skinny guys.
  • my baby looks really skinny, but he's got sexy muscles...he's a baseball player. its sexy if he were muscle laden like a body builder i would throw up on him daily until we broke up. you decide:)
  • I like my man with a bit of meat on him. Personally, big muscles don't do it for me.
  • I can definitely identify with being oppressed because of my appearence. This is why I try to look at a person's character rather than their appearence. I have two alcoholic parents who were very psycholocally abusive. My parents have money and my dad is tall and skinny as I am. My parents teased me and shamed me for being tall and skinny. Their parents shamed them for how they looked due to their own alcoholic background. My brothers teased me to not be picked on themselves. It was very hard to try to hide my tall and skinny 6' 2" 140 lbs frame in high school. After working the 12 steps of recovery in AA and NA, I divorced my parents. It should not surprise anybody that I am a clinical social worker who now works for the elderly and other abused or disadvantaged people. My parents looked acceptable, my mother worked for years as a math teacher and my father worked in advertising in the newspaper business.
  • I'm not picky so, either one is good. :)
  • Depends on the man. I like the middle of the road. Lean with some muscle.. but I dated a heavy-weights weight lifter and really.. his arms and such actually creeped me out. I always like the little skinny ones in high school. Now, I find different things attractive about different men... personality plays the bigger part in deciding if they're attractive... though sometimes I still find the little skinny ones the most attractive. My real issue is tall versus short... body shape is fine, but too tall is my issue.
  • I am 52 years old and it took me 22 years in recovery in AA and NA to divorce my family or origin due to their continued need to abuse me in all ways including giving me a hard time for being tall and skinny even at 52 years old. It is shame that my parents and brothers are still so shallow. I love all of them but just can't be around them because it hurts too much. I am also grateful to have a loving wife and dog who don't care how skinny I am, Thank God. I am so grateful to love looking in the mirror and loving my tall skinny build today. That is gift money cannot buy due to hating my appearence for years and trying to escape these feelings by using alcohol and drugs.
  • depends on the woman. my best friend likes skinny guys, i like muscular guys.
  • I am more attracted to men with meat on their bones and some muscle.
  • I prefer slender men
  • Who cares! Move out the way fatty!
  • Doesn't really matter to me, it's what's inside that counts.
  • I prefer skinny guys.. not skin-and-bones, but tall and thin. But muscles are nice too.
  • Too many close to the skin bones make too many bruises!
  • I like a man who is thin yet a little bit muscular. A man who is well toned and takes care of himself is better looking to me than either extreme. Of course, looks are not the most important trait.
  • Depends on the man. The brooding Musician artist types you almost expect to be thin. But your athletes and servicemen you expect to be hearty and healthy... I like both. Men are just awesome looking as a whole.
  • depends on the woman! i myself personally am not attracted to either of those types, but would lean more towards broader than overly muscly men but thats just my preference. I do prefer mind over body though
  • everyone differs in their tastes. personally, i dont like really skinny guys, but i don't like them to be particularly fat either. I also don't like them to be bulging with muscles, I don't find that attractive.
  • Well, if I wanted to hold a stick or twig I would just go out and get one off a tree!
  • I love all men--within 160-220 pounds that carry it well
  • in between not toooo bony and not to muscly lol...
  • Skinmuscular.
  • about me...i like skinny ones
  • I like men to be fit! neither too muscly, or too thin.. As long as he is in shape.
  • This depends on the woman, obviously. You can't make a generalizations like this.
  • Muscly Men..But A skinny Dork, Is always Fun!! :D
  • in between
  • I like them just average. I don't like them with too much muscle (yikes!! that's scary looking. I wonder if he uses steroids?! No way, if he does!!). I don't like them too thin (what you weigh less than I do?! No way! That would not make me feel good, that's for sure).
  • WTF is a Muscly msn.....
  • i'm a chubby chaser.
  • slender/thin is nice. ;)
  • muscly man he is more fun in bed!
  • neither of the two, i m happy with an average built.
  • I like skinny men.
  • im attracted to guitarist bodies..long, skinny arms (with a bit of muscle) and guitarist fingers..lol im a guitarist myself, that could be why..oh yes and them being skinny overall
  • Don't know what women like, but my Jenn loves me and I'm skinny and geeky so I'll go with that.
  • Why does it matter? I've been with a skinny guy. I've been with a guy who isn't fat and isn't skinny. I've also been and still am with an athletic guy. It's not the body type I'm after. It's a guy with a great attitude and a positive outlook on life that I'm after. It helps if he is playful, spontaneous, and sweet at the same time. A sense of humour definitely helps add appeal.
  • I've always been attracted to big (not obese) tall (6'2" at least) men with some muscle but not so much muscle it's like hugging a washboard physically, but a man's eyes is the first thing I notice overall; then comes the personality; then the physicality.
  • i like them right in the middle, especially if he's tall.
  • I like a man looking FIT, but not one that works out all the time to look fit. maybe he plays sport or his work keeps him fit.. i love it when it is winter and my bf plays footy, he looks so fit by the end of the season but still a lazy little cuddler xxx no muscle... i like to feel safe with them but not threatened by them! ( i really do feel like muscley men are going to squish me!)
  • average. I'd be uncomfortable with someone skinny.. or someone overly muscly
  • different women have different tastes. I prefer in between.
