    NO...what?!? You are clearly mistaken. There is an inverse correlation with physical appeal and intelligence. At least in Los Angeles there is. Any hot guy who MOVES to Los Angeles is 90% of the time doing to so capitalize off their looks with a job (acting, modeling, bartending, etc.) which hardly reinforces anything above a 9th grade education level.

    Where do you live Little_Spoof?

    Actually I think there is a real difference between the average guy (and more so with women)...say in Idaho and in California.

    I think, it's part cultural and part climate...but think of it this way...how often does the average person in Idaho have to worry about looking good enough to go to the beach or any activity that involves showing off your bod.

    It's coat weather here 6 month out of the year!

    LA has ton of attractive people, until they open their mouths.

    Jake is correct about the hot stupid people moving there, but also the ones born and raised there are usually more intelligent for some reason... hmm well I am biased being 4th generation Californian (although I am currently living in NYC).

    Well also Jake if you move away from West Hollywood the intelligence level goes up ie in Pasadena, Palos Verdes, Pacific Pallisades, etc.

    There are two different things being talked about in even this small number of posts:

    The OP asked about "all these hot guys being in California". That's a question of sheer number. And there are a lot -- in large part because California is overwhelmingly the most populous state (2010 estimates: California about 37 million, Texas about 25 million, New York and Florida about 19 million each, etc) Because it's just gigantic, of course there are a ton of hot guys there. Also, lots of ugly guys, but we see many fewer of them on this website.

    One of the early responses talks about the differences in average between different states. That's a different matter. There could easily be differences in the averages in different states -- standard activities, cultural norms, the reasons why people choose to move to a new state -- but even if there were a different state where you'd expect the average person to be much more attractive, there's still that huge population difference. When you see that a huge number of the hot guys in the US are from CA, or a huge number of the hot guys in Canada are from Toronto, etc, that should really come as no surprise.

    And, sitting here amid the snowfall, I do sometimes miss the scenery of college campuses in CA and the nice number of shirtless joggers.... ;)

    kudos to that. the further away you move from that area the better. have any of you ever hung out in the south bay?! tons of those guys (AND gals) are engineers and in finance and its as if you stepped into a billabong catalog

    but yes. generally tend to agree. people travel to LA to capitalize off their good looks. but whats wrong with that?

    Joakry123, I moved to NYC from Manhattan Beach, but I must say it is hard to meet guys there. When you do they are my type: educated, athletic, outdoorsy, and hang out at the straight and mixed bars.

    I have the impression of California being a hot guy magnet.

    Basc on my experience, living here in Cali, then in Illinois,Montana, South Dakota, and Iowa, and doing school in the first and last, Ive come to believe the state with the hottest men is actually Ohio.
    Very clean cut, corn fed, outgoing, in shape. it's nice.
    Cali has hot guys, but it's got a plastic, fake, tweeked sheen to it usually. It's also odd the rep I get as a Ca guy living elsewhere.

    There's hot guys are all over the US. Or maybe you have a thing for California guys...

    If you're looking to date you should also consider their personality tooicon_wink.gif

    stacked312 saidCA def has some talent. But if were talking about LA, ive found a majority of these dudes arent born or raised there, theyre usually from the midwest or east. I have yet to meet a real Angeleno...


    It's like that in a lot of major cities, especially here in NYC. There's a backlash against "non-natives" which is for another topic.

    Very true. Real Angelenos are pretty rare, but they do exist. Sadly, all the ones I know are straight and I generally meet at work... I have yet to meet a gay one - probably a topic for another discussion.

    Agree about the South Bay. I find it much more low key than the West side and Hollywood, and guys are more into athletic activities.

    Little_Spoon saidDistance!

    For some reason, I find all the hot guys to be in New York....

    Anyways, come to a city like San Diego or Riverside. The guys aren't nearly as hot as LA because many of them aren't trying to get into the Entertainment Business. LA is also very very shallow and the gays don't also have to get into looks competition with each other, but the straight guys as well.
