    Depends on what "hunky handsome attractive model type" means. I suspect it means something different to everyone. Having been in competitive endurance sports all my life, my ideal is lean and fit - too many muscles look like useless "gym mussels."

    Each to his own.

    Could be a combination of reasons.

    Not everyone likes model types. I'd rather a rougher looking model than a pretty boy model. However there have been times when I've been 'intimidated' by model looks but I wouldn't let this put me off.

    There is more to relationships than looks. We have 5 senses. Taste and smell also have importance for me. Actual chemistry trumps looks quite often.
    Then there is what he does for a living, his values, etc...

    I don't like men who look like cover models- hairless and every muscle and cut 'perfect'. I like a man with body hair and is fit. A flat/firm stomach with some fur and hint of abs is much nicer IMO than "washboard" and. Also, men with 'perfect' bodies usually don't have that much going on between their ears.

    I would agree that there is probably some sort of underlying issue as to why someone's idea of beauty would vary from the cultural norm. I wouldn't say though, that it's all a defense mechanism in adulthood....they probably just have been wired to like what they like at an earlier age.

    So yeah, i mean i would believe some people who said that and doubt others. I think it would depend on the person i was talking to.

    Everyone likes something different. A friend of mine has a type so distinct you sometimes can't tell her exes apart. I have seen super hot guys beg her to sleep with them and she turns them down because they are not her type. I personally don't go for the All American Ambercrombie and Finch kind of guys. I get that they are beautiful but they do not excite me. I have a thing for disproportionate facial features. Big noses, lips, ears, brows, jaws, anything but big eyes. A guy you may find so beautiful I'd be crazy to pass up might be nice but not someone I would automatically throw myself at.

    Growing up most of the older guys I knew, cousins, uncles and neighbors were big and muscular but not ripped. I think that set my personal standard for male beauty hence the name mrfuscle (fat and muscle). Tmac is a great example of fuscle also known as being thick. The man is clearly in shape and muscular but isn't ripped. That's sexy!

    It is a mixture of both I assume. I like the model types as long as they do not behave like entitled douches: then, I like to shower my attention elsewhere.

    Honestly, sometimes when I see those "model types" that are extremely handsome and perfect, I get a little turned off. They're so perfect that I feel like we just wouldn't mesh and/or that he is so different from me. It's almost as if that model isn't real, so I'm not attracted. It's hard to explain.

    I will say though, that if one of those perfect models came up to me and was interested in me, then I would talk to them and whatnot.

    I think you might be on to something. We have a way of feeling for those whom we can relate to.

    I know some research that shows that people factor in their self-perception of attractiveness when judging someone's attractiveness. The research concluded that the 7s attract more attention than the 10s because people feel more confident about them. I will look it up.

    Of course it's a defense mechanism. This is how the "would not bang" meme started.

    Hmm. Well sometimes a guy can be too perfect, as in high maintenance from their fashion, their hair and whatnot. They can be gorgeous as all hell but being too superficial is a turn off. I prefer the more casually attractive men who don't spend all sorts of time and money to impress people who don't really matter. Body type can range from slim to husky tho, that's not something I'm picky about.

    um, obviously they mean it. Do you know how fucking high maintenance most of those guys are? that enough almost cancels out their physical attributes. The sexiest part of anyone will always be the way they respond to you when you engage with them in conjunction with having the features that turn you on. People who base their entire sexual attraction off of looks are unsophisticated and boring.

    Bonifacius saidOr they just say that because they realize there is no way that type of guy would ever pay them any attention and to protect themselves from disappointment they just reject those type of guys?

    this discussion is limited to looks only


    Models are rarely ever hunky. The two don't even go together. Most models I see -at least in "high fashion" advertising- are waaayyy too young looking, and they're lean but barely have any muscle mass. The industry does this with women too: wafer-thin with no curves. For both men and women, they've taken the masculinity/femininity out, and promote this androgynous early-pubescent look. There's some exceptions, like lingerie advertising for women.

    I assume they're talking about fitness models like Sergi Constance or Anton Antipov. Dislike for androgynous type is a near consensus here.

    Mostly a sour grapes thing, I suspect.

    Then there is a creepy syndrome, mostly observed in women, but I've seen some gays do it... A "4" or even an assertive "2" will somehow corral a buff but dumb "9" or "10," then deliberately try to make him fat and unattractive, to keep others away from him. Of course, guys can't trap you by getting pregnant...
    It just seems vicious to me... Why not just go for one of the abundant and available "4's" to start with?

    It makes total sense to be repulsed by high maintenance people, after all you want to be with someone you relate with. It's another thing altogether projecting flaws onto people just because they are in a higher league.
