    What is the least fit type of guy you find attractive?

    Everybody's standards converge the higher you raise the bar. Can we assume the opposite is also true? It seems the great diversity of taste is not in what people find the most attractive, but in the minimally attractive.

    It reminds me of this quote:

    "All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

    How low can you lower the bar? Let's diverge!

    That's an interesting question. I mean, aside from a seriously.. um "not my type" guy I had a short encounter with all my guys have had had at least three plus things I found attractive about them. You know, like nice butt, nice pecs, nice calves, but maybe they don't have a six pack and bulging shoulders but they're still hot.

    ~15% bodyfat. Anything more and I simply can't get a woody no matter how much I like the guy as a person.

    I honestly don't think I could do anything over 240 lbs , and at that weight they'd need to be atleast 5'10 or taller probably. Beefy, Stocky, overweight,etc. It's all good

    Besides this, I'm fine with anyone and any height really. My bar seems really low, but truth be told, personality/character outweighs physical attraction in my book.

    This is an interesting thread. Never really thought about it before. I think that towards the lower end of the minimum physical standards, there is convergence there also.

    I would not be attractive to obesity. Overweight with slight stomach is not a problem, but overweight with a beer gut is.

    In other words... deal breakers physically.

    Mine is disproportionate body weight. Really makes me go, "Eh..."

    Physically, im never attracted to guys who have a beer gut or shorter than me. There are fat guys I see who look good because I can tell they work out; Theyre more stocky, broad shoulders, big arms and chest, they got muscles underneath, and thats good.
    Long hair, bad teeth are dealbreakers also.

    I am 19. I can't do younger than me, and my age is difficult. Prefer 23-30. I mean Obviously I won't ignore someone my age - 23 icon_razz.gif


    And I liek short boys if theya re beefy/muscleboys. Taller boys don't have to be as muscular. Though the bigger the better ahqahaha.

    This isn't shallow. We're expressing our innate characteristics of attraction. I didn't pick to ve attracted to short men anymore than I picked being gay. It's just the way I am wired. (love to know why someday, if science ever figures it out).

    Honestly, as long as they are able to see their junk, are clean cut and don't have the tude', I am very open minded when it comes to looks.

    I don't think this is necessarily so much shallow as hard to articulate for most of us. There are certainly guys I've turned down because I didn't find them attractive, but the reasons for that were much more nebulous than behavioral criteria, such as that I won't date a smoker. I posit that we all probably have minimal standards for physical attractiveness, it's just that for many of us, they're vague.

    And, to answer the original question the way it's worded: the least *fit* type of guy I find physically attractive is the college age guy who doesn't work out, doesn't play any sports, doesn't eat right, and still has the amazingly perfect body. I've known a number of them; guys who had neither endurance nor strength, but had these amazing bodies. Some people just win the genetic lottery.

    No matter what kind of relationship you have, physical attraction has to be apart of it. Now if thats the only thing that one cares about, then they are shallow.

    My minimum is big arms and shoulders, abs do nothing for me, but I like a guy who can pick me up.

    hAVE to agree on the low body fat...but not too low that I"m with an inanimate object and not a human being.
    Intelligence and/or self deprecating sense of humor / humility ultimately wins
