    Oh there it goes again.

    Well a muscular and hot guy, everyone wants that. I myself enjoy watching muscular guys, my hot list is also full of hot muscular guys, but nah i don't narrow myself down to just these types of guys. If you don't look hot or sexy then it's obviously the percent of your crush talking to you is around 10%, a hot guy might be hit on for so many times that he surely will talk to someone he thinks significant. That's their choices so don't blame them, they're just like you, wanting to use the filter. So if you want a type of guy, surely you need to do something about that, or else, just be yourself and take your chance. I'm just an average guy but still it's possible to talk with some hot and nice guys here.

    P/S: i like your new profile pic, it's cute lilTanker :p

    rosco87 saidi generally like bigger guys that work out and i'm not attracted to guys my own size, but all the guys i try to talk to don't seem interested and the ones that are interested are slim guys like myself. so are muscle guys always looking for muscle guys and slim for slim? cause that means i have to gain weight now.

    edit:


    by muscle guys i mean big guys that are in shape. not skinny guys that are muscular


    nah i can name a couple big hotties on here that like skinny. Some more sexually than others. I just made a german friend here who is a total gentleman, sweet guy, but at the same time a beautiful model-type bodybuilder.
    I used to think that big guys only go for big guys and that is true for a lot of them. They like guys who care about themselves as much as they do.
    but there is still a big group of muscular studs who are attracted to simply a cute face with a brain.

    rosco87 saidlmfao wtf is this dude talking shit to me about for. highly illogical and rude.

    thank you everyone else for input, i've found it very helpful. once i'm able to go back to work i'll probably be investing in weight gain of some sort. would still love to hear anyone else's input assuming it's not blind ranting about me .... doing w/e.... idk that guys a loon. please no arguments.



    I agree. Someone talking about your athletic abilities should not throw stones, but rather look in the mirror.
    Stereotypical late 40's (most likely) single man who, judging by his hot list, worships men who are exponentially more in shape than he could ever be...

    Karma's a bitch.

    i feel like some people really just aren't on the same page, i really don't believe in "hot or not" as a lot of people have told me i'm hot. they just aren't the type i'm looking for. i've met and had real feelings for guys that were lifting weights and probably around 200 pounds though. why? idk. just different type of people. that's why i'm looking for the perspective of the demographic to better understand what's attractive to them.

    this isn't a "wahhhhh people dont like me" topic, this is a "what kind of guys generally gravitate to which kind of guys" topic. think of it as a sociological study. not some 'hot or not' bullshit.

    Then you need to re-edit the beginning thread to make it cause less misunderstanding right?

    About the red thing you mentioned: What you plan to argue?

    beneful1 saidWhy are some of you making it sound like "changing" yourself aka getting fitter and in better shape is a bad thing? Besides I never said change for a specific person but get yourself in great shape and you will expand your dating pool. That's they way it is, simple as that , seriously.


    You can do all that and still end up lonely. You have to have substance.

    I think he means that if you are unattractive than the likelihood of being talked to by someone you do find attractive is lower than normal.

    Pretty sure he just didn't understand what you were typing because it wasn't a coherent sentence. You don't have to get your undies in a bunch. Not everything is meant as an attack. icon_smile.gif

    Smaller, same size, bigger. Doesn't matter. Masculine and non-smoker does.

    Illogical. If you gain mass fewer guys will be bigger than you. Wouldn't the chances of meeting a guy bigger than you who actually likes you become smaller rather than greater?

    Why not work on looks or charisma?

    I agree, I see so many dating and relationship advice for straight that focus on character, charisma, confidence, and way to dress as opposed to changing your body type when it's already healthy(being slim is still healthy >_>) and getting plastic surgery to be "perfect". But, I don't see any books or shows that cater to gays and giving realistic, solid advice. I never wanna be perfect, I don't care if I'm the "least attractive" of 10 gay guys, as long as there is someone out there!

    What's wrong with skinnier guys? You guys are always complaining about guys being: too skinny, too tall, too short, too pale, too dark, dick is too small, too rich, too poor and on and on and on...Yet you guys complain about being alone. I wonder why. I really think most gays have unreal expectations for guys.

    Its because dating in the gay world has turned into a checklist as opposed to the things like chemistry, personality, and overall package.

    Oh you dont have abs, next!

    Oh, you dont have intelligence, next!

    Oh you dont have sense of humor, next!

    Stop looking at people as objects and start seeing them as individuals, That will probably help a lot.

    I think it's such a POSITIVE thing to be skinny. I can't think of anything wrong with it. But, it's only a body type. I don't pay attention to my body as much in terms of looks, since I don't care about my looks. I only care about having fun, and having friends, and being healthy and happy.

    I wasnt talking about you specifically, but the community as a whole.

    A good example of this is that I prefer older men (30-40), at the same time, I do come across younger guys my age who I am attracted too, why would I pass them up just because they dont meet my ideal?

    My theory is that most guys generally like or look for someone similar to themselves because then it's more likely to work out, being for just sex or a bf.
    So since this really got me thinking (and I have too much time on my hands) I came up with some rubbery figures to try to work out your match potential icon_wink.gif
    And this is just for fun btw so please don't take it too seriously icon_smile.gif

    ================
    population breakdown
    ================
    5% skinny
    25% average-skinny
    5% athletic
    2% defined
    2% muscular
    1% body builder
    10% stocky
    35% average-fat
    15% fat

    ==============================
    % chance of one type liking the other:
    ==============================
    sk_as_at_df ms bb st af__ft
    90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 sk
    80 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 as
    70 80 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 at
    60 70 80 90 80 70 60 50 40 df
    50 60 70 80 90 80 70 60 50 ms
    40 50 60 70 80 90 80 70 60 bb
    30 40 50 60 70 80 90 80 70 st
    20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 80 af
    10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 ft

    Your odds = %guys * (like ratio)
    so...

    Example1:
    average-skinny guy matching a muscular guy:
    2% * .60 = 1.2% odds

    Example 2:
    muscular guy matching an average-skinny guy:
    25% * .60 = 15% odds

    Hmm, I just prefer guys that aren't lazy and take care of their bodies to some extent, doesn't mean they have to be jacked as shit.

    I prefer muscular body types, but if they're not it isn't a deal breaker... being skinny fat is though.

    I'll admit to being shallow to an extent, fuck it. icon_smile.gif
