    They do if that can manage it! I went to the gym to get bigger so I'd have a chance with big guys. This is a superficial thing to get more attention and possibly more action, but the more guys that are interested in you gives you more options. I say get yourself in the best shape you can to maximize your possibilities.

    Here's an anecdote: Once i replaced my picture on grindr with this big beautiful specimen of man.

    Fifteen minutes later, this was my grindr:

    I got tons of messages from guys!! I thought to myself, if i really was this sexy guy, and I had all these people sending me messages saying "you're hot", who am I going to respond to? THE BEST LOOKING ONES. Of COURSE.

    I don't know. I'm slender but I get just as much attention as guys who are buff and ripped from the same sort of guys they get attention from. I'm speaking in real life not in Grindr. It's a relative thing. Don't just blame other p[eople's attractions, look at your manurisms, your pesonality and your apearance. Change your hair and your atire. Your approach.

    You don't have to be a bodybuilder but you have to know your way around a gym for me to be interested.

    I agree with this. Unless your only interaction with other guys is through on-line applications, many things about you make up the overall package in addition to your physical form.

    Be the man that you want to date.

    I want to get bigger, but I'm really attracted to slimmer athletic guys for dating situations.

    Yes... I think as Freshlad put it in his profile. You don't spend all that time in the gym so your partner doesn't have to! It's a two-way street.

    I probably don't qualify as one of those muscular guys you mention, but I do visit the gym often.

    I can reveal that for myself I can forgive someone who has an average body. With that said it is important that he is not fat though. If he doesn't go to the gym then that is fine as long as you maintain an ok body. So an average bodied guy with a killer face can easily grab my attention.

    OP, if you just want sex then yeah beast out at the gym and put on some beef. You'll be the village bicycle in no time. If you want some substance then exude confidence. Intuitive minds will pick up on it and be drawn to it. Don't sell yourself short by trying to appeal to superficial tricks.

    LOL Paul Wagner? Nice choice. I saw a guy on Grindr using this old pic of Jeff Gannon HAHAHA. When I told the dude he wasn't Jeff Gannon he was like how would you know. The guy was claiming to be in his 30s according to his profile and I was like uhhh Jeff is in his mid 50s and why would he be in BFE Ohio... He didn't block me but he didn't change the pic either lol.
