    Although I haven't been to Cape Town, that article is totally correct.
    I've never met a fitness model or bodybuilder who didn't want to change something about his or her physique.

    Yeah, that's the kind of thing I sort of deal with. I DONT WANT a burly, rubgy-like body AT ALL. I'd rather be fit and slim. But, it seems there are several people that won't look at you unless you have a "gym body". But I don't want a gym body, I prefer a healthy, ordinary body. The thing is, if I do "bulk up" I would never want to maintain it..I would have the instant urge to let go and just enjoy life.

    Thanks man - I'm afraid the .com domain was taken by a porn site(!) I think it's an interested area which isn't addressed a lot by the press.

    Capetonian is legit! In a Galwegian kind of way...

    I definitely feel similar in the gym. I know I'm in better shape than most outside of the gym, but in the gym, I'm not quite at the average; or so it seems, heh.

    Then date a skinny dude... not a guy that spends hours in the gym buffing up to get the body that they want

    But what if I am attracted to a muscular guy, and we have quite a few things in common, except our body types are different? There are quite a few muscular guys I find attractive and such, and I ideally would want to be myself in a relationship with them, not a carbon copy of what they look like.

    I love skinny guys too, they are also hot. But I guess I don't want to greatly limit chances in meeting men all because of something like a "body type". There are couples out there who DONT look like each other who seem happy icon_neutral.gif

    Well sexual preference isn't always as binary as we'd like, so body-type A guy might not find body-Type B attractive in the same manner that he isn't attracted to women. Even by viewing guys' hotlists on here you'll not often find, for example, a bodybuilder into a bunch of slim guys. Many exceptions always exist though, and you'll find being confident in yourself will make you more far appealing than many of the Adonis bods out there.

    "But fitness is taking second stage to aesthetics."

    ^^ Best quote of your post. I think all too often, people (especially us gay guys) equate aesthetics to fitness. I know some guys who have the physiques of gods, but I wouldn't necessarily entrust them with my life if I were drowning or trapped in a burning building.
