    I see a lot of people writing that they have A type. I have a friend whose type is so specific its borderline creepy. Its really hard to tell her exes apart. This has always been odd to me. I have so many types. What I like in one group, body hair and bad skin in white guys, I don't like in other groups, tattoos big muscles and feminine eyes in black guys. Attraction is such a weird and interesting topic for me because my mind seems to latch on to very specific features in people as opposed to very specific types. Just a ramble, feel free to join in.

    This would be interesting if you were talking about old cars or paintings or fashion. But your views of other people are so shallow. I agree about it being borderline creepy.icon_confused.gif

    I don't see anything creepy about it at all. In my experience, most start out thinking they have a type they'd like to meet but then discover different things in different guys that attracts them. That's having an open mind and broadening perspective. It is called learning.

    My friend is the creepy one. Even she jokes about how weird it is. She has shown me pictures of her exes an it looks like she's been dating from one specific family for years.

    the bold part is very true. I use to find all Asians unattractive to me. However I have discovered I like Chinese guys with very high cheek bones. I use to find Indians unattractive until I met this dark skinned Indian dude at the gym who nearly sent me to the ER with his beauty.

    I mostly go for bearded, hairy, geeky guys. The absence of a bear really decreases the attraction.

    Can it be a strap on, or does it have to be the real deal? I guess what I am asking is can a hot chica bend you over and make a man out of you? icon_lol.gif

    Not that it ever occurred to me but if I am offered such an experience, I may not decline it immediately. Who knows, I may discover new ways to please me.

    But so far, I have been all about the real deal.

    I really don't take it that personally. I just find myself responding to your posts more often lately because you have a strong view, and sometimes I disagree with your view, or I just have another opinion to toss out there... Maybe I don't "+1" often enough on the posts I agree with to balance it out, but, either way, if you're going to post your point of view on a public forum, people will not always agree. Or they might think you're being superficial... If you're just looking put people down who don't share your view then you should put on a robe and preach.

    I agree not everyone is going to like what I say. As someone who enjoys making fun of other posters you disagree with on racial issue I find your last comment hilarious. Its very cliched to tell someone that if they are going to post an opinion on a public form someone is going to disagree with them. You disagree with me. I disagree with your disagreement. Its called life. The sermon was unnecessary.

    Do you work for Fox News now? People who push racial stereotypes, and hate speech always say they're being attacked, made fun of, not respected... But what do they want? They want to promote racism. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. I'm hardly making fun of them. I'm really just using a historical perspective to show how hypocritical their prejudices are in the first place.

    Yup. I have several 'types'.

    This has not changed over a few years now.

    One part of it is purely related to my own perception of who is attractive and who is less so.

    The other part has to do with the experience. I connect easily with people who share some of my tastes, views, likes. This does not go on to shut out everyone else by default. But, yeah, a bit of a comfort while dating, being in a relationship of any kind is really not harmful. icon_lol.gif

    None of my exes have anything in common other than they are exes. Oh, and dark hair and dark eyes.

    Slews of "average" gays message and hit on men way out of their league, but there's a method to their delusion: sometimes, it works. And sometimes, perfect men hit on them.

    Exhibit A: gorgeous Tab Hunter, a closeted '50s movie star.

    jrffrp.jpg

    Tab was stunningly handsome by every definition of the day (actually German, he was the Aryan ideal), 6' plus of boyish, then manly hunk who, if you saw the film, had a definite type, the most famous and best-looking of which were probably "Psycho's" Anthony Perkins and "Planet of the Ape's" Roddy McDowell. His 2015 documentary "Tab Hunter: Confidential" revealed all his boyfriends to be this particular type - sometimes cerebral, often goofy-cute, and always nebbishy, shorter and twinky.

    So keep on phishing hot guys with mass messaging, fellas, 'cause you never know. A sampling of Tab's type:

    Tab's lover Ronnie Robertson, an Olympic skater hopeful, who was told he wouldn't win if Tab accompanied him to the Games (Tab did, Ronnie didn't):
    zvpnvr.jpg
    (Tab was also an accomplished skater)

    With actor/lover Roddy McDowell:
    wi0tpx.jpg

    Sporting '70s bulge along with actor/lover Anthony Perkins, perhaps a dozen years after their long term relationship:

    With current partner of 30 years, movie producer Allen Glaser, 30 years his junior (and EXACTLY my age, dammit!):

    Red heads at the top of the list but other than that as long as they look after themselves, physically fit and share common interests then it's all good.

    I do definitely have a general type, my bf can easily pick out guys that I would like, but at the same time there are always exceptions. Sometimes for whatever reason you just find a particular guy attractive even though they don't fit your usual type.

    I also think it's different if you're talking purely physical or you are looking for something more. All except one of the guys I've ever dated, including my current, were not my 'usual' type but I obviously found them attractive and they had many other great qualities that I liked. The guy who was my type physically, actually was a bit of a dick and the 'relationship' was very short-lived.

    I know how this sounds, and I am far from racist but I do not find asian guys attractive, either physically or mentally, I have yet to find one that I am attracted to, yeh they are nice people and all that but just doesn't do it for me, the only guy I have been in love with is of mixed race, black/white so just to defend myself from anyone who thinks that I might be racist. At the end of the day, its all about chemistry and you never can tell who you have that with, I don't have a type per say but because different guys are attractive for different reasons but intelligence is the biggest thing for me by far, if i'm not mentally attracted then they have no hope even if they had the perfect body, thats low on my list of attractive qualities, one guy I have slept with is slightly on the chubby side, Oh my god its great in bed, he thinks the same, I would rather sleep with him than Brad Pitt. I might make an exception with Chris Evans or Henry Cavill, YUM hahaha.

    Just had to say, I'm not saying that you are racist but being in love with someone mixed race doesn't mean you are not racist! Someone can be racist against one particular race and not any other. It's the 'some of my friends are black' argument - may be so, but how do you feel about Chinese people, or South American?

    I haven't ever been attracted to someone from china or any other asian country, South America isn't Asia, I have however been very attracted to guys from the South American countries, I dated a guy from Ecuador, very sexy too, really lovely guy but he did have a slight complex because of coming from there, I'm not sure why though because I have met many people from South America who are very nice people, down to earth and friendly.

    I think what you may have been referring to is the cultural divide but didn't quite write it down as eloquently.

    However I do ask a question of you? You don't think Asians born and raised in Anglo Saxon world think differently to their Eastern born counterparts?

    Yeh, sorry about that, but its also a physical thing too maybe, I don't know why, I also don't mean to cause offence by that, its something you can't help.
    Do you not find other asians attractive, even ones born in the west, prefer white or black maybe? just interested in your opinion
