The more muscular you are the more attention you get ( to a certain degree )

    So in my personal experiences I've noticed this is true for the online world, is this true in real life as well? (gay bars etc) What's your experience?

    I'm certainly no expert on this, but everyone is always looking for something different. I would imagine the ones who are more in shape/athletic get more attention than the ones who aren't though. I know when I was wearing my tight shirt and tight jeans at the bar last Saturday dudes were checking me out. Or maybe it was because I was rocking face at pool (I'm the best pool player ever by the way).

    Just remember... to some you can be a person's worst nightmare, and to some you're their greatest fantasy. :-)

    I walked into a shop on Libertad to buy una paragua today. The two women en la tienda seemed kind and helped me to complete my purchase. Then, they turned on me and began to tell me how muscular I am. They came from behind the counter and began to squeeze my biceps and touch my chest.

    I barely made it out alive. I could have nearly had children.

    It's nice to look at muscular men, but there is a point where there is too much muscle. At least for me. icon_confused.gif

    That's funny because a friend of mine told me that in his experience most women said they prefer skinner guys with leaner builds and not overly muscular.

    Different strokes.

    I don't think you'd be anyone's worst nightmare Josh icon_wink.gificon_smile.gif

    Well put though. I agree, not everyone will be looking for the same thing. Personally, I tend to pay more attention to a cute guy than a muscular guy.

    On the whole though, having a rockin' body will likely grab you a bit more attention. Though, as I recall reading in another thread at one point, it may not always be the kind of attention you're hoping for.

    Not entirely true. Generally yes, but I get attention from guys all the time. They might not be the ones I'm after, but hey, bad press is better than no press!!!

    On my daily walk to my gym ($79 a month FYI) I get eye fucked everynow and then by some old, wrinkled tourist. At the bars too, I generally get hit on by guys not really my type, and I sure as hell ain't no bodybuilder.


    Online though, I get hit on by every type of demographic. Old, young, black, white, hot and not...it's all about how you carry yourself...

    This is completely off topic, but me gusta mucho the Spanglish icon_cool.gif I catch myself doing it all the time with my compaƱeros de clase that speak both languages.

    The answer is YES, muscular guys get more attention. They're more attractive, it makes sense. Why buy the Honda when you can get the Corvette...?

    In my experience, online, that does seem the case. If you aren't muscular, you won't get much attention as say, the muscular guy. But there have been rare instances where I guy that was my type actually replied to a message I wrote and seemed genuinely into me which threw me off. I would think that the muscular guy would want an equally muscular or more guy so when I do come across one who actually likes lean guys, it's a mind fuck. lol

    In real life, I don't think it's such a case. I don't really go to gay bars/clubs etc but I do get checked out every now and then at like a mart or just outside walking. Of course, I don't think it's the right attention because my clothing taste is a bit different then what you see every day.

    But yeah, I think anyone can get checked out in real life. Sure it may not be guys that aren't your type but hey, attention is attention. lol

    No, muscles don't always make you more attractive. Ask Carrot Top:

    No doubt that more muscular you are the more attention you'll get. Whether it's good attention or bad attention depends on the beholder.

    Yea, I dunno. Seems that most people are more attracted to muscular guys. Muscle is attractive because it makes you look strong. But, there comes a point where it seems fake, phony, and artificial, and that's where it ceases to be attractive. A really attractive guy is someone who looks like he's been out in the fields hard at work, but whose face subtly indicates that he is discerning, insightful, and has read books.

    Plato was right to connect beauty and harmony. When either the body, mind, or soul dominate the others into oblivion, beauty is lost. Our access into another's beauty is obscured on a site like this when you are not standing in front of him in the intimacy of a face to face encounter, but in person I think we do perceive beauty correctly, and attraction follows suit. I think being overly muscular when it doesn't suit one's frame makes one less beautiful. Similarly being scrawny makes one less beautiful as well.

    I was just reading about this yesterday.

    Modern studies show that women prefer tall and muscular, at the biological level.

    That being said about women, there's a huge difference in preference or what's cool.

    Contingent to the audience, I might get swooned, or not.

    What's more interesting is the skinny guys who lash out at someone very built. I understand that it's projection, but, you think folks would be above it. They aren't.

    A beautiful body is amazing to look at, admire, covet & have. If the personality coinciding with it isnt humble, fun or if theyre too stuck on themselves, arrogant, degrading & mean then they are a huge turn off for me no matter what they look like.

    I think people lash out at you because they think you are an idiot.

    Yes but there are always exceptions. Some people don't like muscles. I do though.
