Does a thigh gap really matter?

Basically, I'm a girl who has never had a thigh gap (I'm not fat, I've always been pretty muscular and of a slim/average build) but I was wondering if having no thigh gap was some kind of a turn off for a guy? I read an article earlier today which just made me really worry about something as stupid as my thighs touching a little. What are your views on thighs? Responses from both males and females are both welcome, thanks:)

  • No. It's funny what we will fixate on to be uncomfortable about. A pretty universal challenge. However, a good relationship (which I think most of us want) isn't based on the absence of imperfection (because, if some form or another we all have them... one of mine appears to be parenthetical references). Good relationships have communication, shared interests, room for individuality and are rooted in some manner of attraction. Don't worry about how others perceive you. Work on being the person *you* want to be. The magic happens when you find someone you care for who thinks that person you've become is darn special.

  • As a girl we can't win, men claim they want big boobs and a big ass but hey what often come along with those two traits... rounder thighs!
    Don't worry too much, I'm really naturally slender yet my thighs still touch a little and no one has ever told me that I look disgusting because of it, it's just a social media hype... next week there'll be something about how it's a turn off because your toes are too close together, there's no pleasing some people!

    • "As a girl we can't win, men claim they want big boobs and a big ass"
      Some men do. That's like if I said that women want big penises. Some of them do, not all.

    • @JuicyBrain right, I do agree with you

    • Seriously I can't be bothered to write a half decent reply. Everyone is different, with different needs and wants, obviously. I get that but on the whole, it's proven that men like a woman to look a certain way and that's what I'm saying here.

  • Literally the only people who give a shit about thigh gaps are girls who like to degrade one another over insignificant things like thigh gaps.

  • Eh, thigh gaps just seem like another silly thing that skinny girls use to try and prop themselves up. It's kinda like that whole "I can wrap my around my back and touch my belly button" thing. It's all just ridiculous ways that women try to put one another down, in my opinion.

    Almost zero men care about it, and lots of us think it's totally ridiculous.

    • Yeah, I do see that shit all over media tbh

    • don't buy into this, thigh gaps don't matter! :-D

    • Give this guy a double MHO.
      He just summed everything up us guys are think. And those magazines are written by women who know just as much abut men as you do. Stop reading them.

  • This is just another way of trying to get women to think that us men care for any of this, so no, a thigh gap is not something us guys would demand any woman should have to be better looking or more acceptable, its merely media rubbish talking b0llocks, x

  • " I read an article earlier today which just made me really worry about something as stupid as my thighs touching a little. "

    Take things like that with a grain of salt. The only people who notice thigh gaps are the owner of the thighs. It's literally something some group of people made up to make women even more insecure about themselves. And now everyone is reaping the consequences.

    • Yeah you're right, it's literally just a matter of having a bit more skin than others or having slightly different shaped body structures

  • No it doesn't. It's just a trend that was put out their for skinny girls to feel superior again, because thick girls wee getting the limelight. As much as it sucks, a lot of people don't know how to make someone feel better without putting other down. They have to say, "You're beautiful, because your better than x". It's messed up.

    But no. No guy cares about thigh gaps.

  • No. not at all. Guys dont pay attention to things like that. Nor do anyone else. I have a lot of friends who are girls and they all gossip in front of me and I never heard a single girl say "Omg look she doesn't even have a thigh gap" or I never heard a guy go "Ew she doesn't have a thigh gap, im not dating her"
    I have never noticed whether girls have thigh gaps or not, and i honestly find it a bit unattractive

  • That's just media crap. I don't care about tight gap. It's trying to brainwash us into liking it, most guys don't give a crap. I myself never noticed it until a year ago when I saw an article trying to buy me into "liking" a tight gap.

    Actually if the poor girl if really skinny to have her "tight gap" it's more of a turnoff.

  • It's there where love comes in picture. If a guy truly loves a girl then these silly things don't matter n vice-versa For girls. But if a girl or a guy wanna let down each other or wanna get rid of the person or relationship then these sort of things comes in picture.

  • to me, it does not matter if a girl has a thigh gap or not. im just into all types of legs, dont even stress on what the stupid surveys say or what a poll says, or what research says about having thigh gaps, those people are on crack and only take in what they want to see. i bet you have very beautiful attractive legs

  • truthfully i dont think it matters because most guys dont really tend to look at a girls thighs and get turned off or whatever, i personally think its really hot when there is no thigh gaps and when she works out aswell. but I've been attracted to girls with thigh gaps aswell. in the end its the personality that counts :D

  • The thigh gap thing is blatant bullshit. Pardon my French.

    Every guy I have ever spoken to has told me that thigh gaps have never been something that crossed their mind. The only thing that matters if the woman is overall attractive to him. They aren't going to sit there and measure the space you have between your thighs unless they are completely, overly shallow.

  • Everyone is a different shape and size. Why strive for something if it's not achieveable? It's best to know your figure and go from there.

    My boyfriend hates a thigh gap. He much prefers a good cook to a good runner. And I have never had a thigh gap, I had a thigh diamond and that's the closest I'll ever get... and I'm fine with that :)

  • It does not matter at all. I really doubt guys hit on girls and then say,"*gasp* you don't have a thigh gap! Sorry but not good enough" and then just walk away. I really doubt guys give that any attention since between the legs is something a billion times better than a thigh gap.

  • Thigh gaps have nothing to do with your weight and everything to do with your bone structure. Some women have close set hips. No matter how skinny they get, their thighs aren't gonna gap because their pelvis is too small and narrow for the thighs to separate like that. Some women have wide set hips. They could gain weight and still have a thigh gap because their pelvis is just spaced out like that.

  • Deff. Not! I asked my boyfriend this one tme and ended up having to explain what a "thigh gap" was, in the end he remarked that "thats the stupidest thing I've ever head, guys don't go around remarking 'look at that gap between HER thighs' " so no xD
