    Just curious: Has getting buff improved your dating life? I mean either just number of people who are interested and/or quality of the folks you dated.

    If you're one of those people who really transformed his body, was the difference marked?

    Sometimes I wonder if even super attractive folks have trouble dating.

    Thanks y'all.

    Other in shape guys will be more attracted to you if you're in shape. That's just how the ball bounces. Getting in shape will make you more confident, and if you're a good guy, confidence will bring out the better side of your personality, and dating becomes much easier.

    I don't know if it's because they're having trouble dating but some of the hottest guys on this site are single.

    Since when do you go on dates? I thought you just liked having your chalupa stuffed with meat.

    And I would like to go on a date BEFORE I get my chalupa stuffed. But alas, that doesn't seem to be happening.

    not sure...it does get you flirting a lot more, probably the (sexy and I know it) confidence it builds.

    When I was in my bulking phase, I have noticed more guys check me out and wanted to go out with me.
    Now I'm in my skinny phase again, dropped the pounds, and the attention dropped off too.
    I guess guys like me buff. Go figure. icon_confused.gif

    On the other side of the coin: I've been pretty inactive for the last year because my job demanded a lot. So I've gotten out of shape. I no longer have my abs, my chest is a mess, and my arms are still skinny. I literally call myself a muffin top sometimes. However.....

    I had a boyfriend this past year, I had been single the past 8 years before. We've broken up since October, but it wasn't because I was out of shape. He was also an amazing bodybuilder. I was lucky to have him really.

    But my point is, I've also had a lot of interest from some very sexy men....more so than I did when I was in shape.

    My only problem is....being out of shape has made me lose lots of confidence and even if I find a great man, I tend to think I don't deserve him.

    You will get more guys hitting on you, because of the outward packaging.
    Of course what so many people do not realize- a buff guy is just as damaged and has just as much baggage and as is just as neurotic as a skinny or fat guy.

    I found more guys are interested but you become more critical of skinny arms or a gut because you know they could change it if they wanted to. Although I still have a gut icon_redface.gif

    I find that a lot more girls check me out, and the girls that check me out are usually much hotter than the guys who check me out icon_sad.gif

    I think getting hit on, certainly.... conversations, for sure. Since I've been involved with somebody 99% of the time I've been out, dating hasn't been a factor.

    Working out and putting on muscle transformed my sex life, my dating life and the way people responded to me in all sorts of non-sexual situations. While it's certainly true that plenty of buff guys are just as neurotic as anyway else, in my case it gave me a sense of confidence that people picked up on. Physical presence counts for something in almost all kinds of situations.
