    Is the fact that your body is "spectacular" put off some really great guys?

    I wouldn't call my body spectacular. But I've been told many times that I do have an intimidating appearance. And with the popularity of MMA, some guys think I fight or something.

    Ah, no. I would never consider my body in the "spectacular" category.

    My matter of fact manner, and fairly deep voice might be a bit off-putting to some. A guy at a Chinese take out (who I suspect is gay) asked me if I was a cop yesterday! icon_lol.gif

    Yeah... I'm not intimidating at all. The best I got was when a good friend of mine referred to me as a
    "Hyperactive, Rabid Squirrel"

    I dream about having an "intimidating" body .. I prefer in my workouts to aim less for pretty or esthetic body, and more about looking strong ....

    Nothing is hotter than a wrestler or warrior in bed, doncha agree?

    Some guys think i wont even talk to them because their not buffed, then others see me and pump up their chest [trying to look bigger], it's really funny...However, i do love the attention...

    Never been told intimidating, but I've been told that guys have been motivated to hit the gym by my body, so I thought that was nice

    Intimidating? Not by a long shot. But I'm pretty good at running so I don't need to be intimidating. lol.

    Sadly, no, though I would love to intimidate. I would take it as a compliment.

    Though I do have some muscle, it's all attached to my face, which looks equal parts tired, confused, and scared. The opposite of intimidating.

    I don't know, but a straight guy smacked my butt and told me that I have a good, muscular ass.

    Umm, I try to talk to anybody and everybody I can get myself in a comfortable situation enough to. My body and theirs don't make a difference. I talk to overweight people, average weight, body builders, or pencil thin guys. I'm not intimidated by them and I'm sure they're not intimidated by me. I don't got major muscles, but guys have said my form, still unchanged, is enough to turn them on...? I don't see what they see. I just see an average body, and I'm fine with that, just want to be physically fit.

    If anyone tells me that I'm great looking in any way and I don't know them well, I assume they just couldn't get themselves to say nothing bad to my face at all, and probably only see someone superficial and shallow. Which in turns leads me to believe they're themselves superficial and shallow, since they couldn't see passed that one aspect of me.

    I'd be dumbfounded if anyone found me intimidating. Then again, I'm not sure I look "spectacular" in any way.

    I am more concerned how your mouth works....instead of how perfect your body is...I also like a person who can be warm, cheerful and HAPPY!




    However, I am not that concerned if guys are afraid to talk. We all bleed and are just flesh and bones. Not quite GOD'S yet!

    Don't consider us who find you attractive to have low standards. Think of us as having a generous and accuired taste for the exceptional.

    Looks and bodies are not able to intimidate, your mind is what makes you intimidated by some one or thing. If I do find someone intimidating, I usually go after them, they are more exciting. I am open to and tell someone that I may feel intimidated by them in some fashion, but it is not them but me.

    The more beautiful the body, usually goes with some insecurities and so do not feel they are unapproachable.
