I was wondering, what guys would prefer girls to wear (skirts, shorts or jeans), if they have larger calves?
In my situation, I would love to wear skirts and shorts, but because I have large calves, I am afraid of showing them when I wear something short. I am not fat, but its just that my calves are large and its in the genes,
Still, should I try wearing skirts and shorts? I am afraid that I may look like crap and people will start talking behind me. what should I do?

Wear whatever you want.
I personally think that large calves are attractive. Ballet dancers, soccer players, runners and others tend to have relatively large calves. It's actually something that I've found lots of others to like as well.
What I've noticed is that large calves look sexy in a pair of jeans that fit tighter in that area. Also, I've noticed that they look good in shorts or skirts also(summer dresses are my favorite) . Moreso when her ankles are not the same size as her calves(aka cankles). As long as you can see a distinction between your calves and ankles, then feel free to cover up or show off, whatever makes you comfortable. Just know that there are guys out there that are attracted to women with shapely calves. ( I just spent a good 20 mins trying to find a picture of a woman with large calves to make my point, this was the best I could do. Her legs look fantastic and she appears to be an average sized woman, not a bodybuilder or anything but her legs are huge. Still, very sexy shape and size.): link
In response to the other answer (user: drstms) about physical attraction and making a lifelong investment before getting to see a woman's full body: We are just talking about showing off her legs here. There has to be physical attraction at first and that is just one thing that women can leverage when attracting a man. Physical attraction and 'getting physical' are two completely different things. If you were at a social gathering and everyone girl looked exactly the same, there wouldn't be much incentive to talk to one girl over the other. The way someone dresses and carries themself with confidence can be the one thing that clicks with another person and makes them want to pursue that person into a deeper relationship. Start with first things first. Physical attraction happens first. Then you can talk to someone, get to know them, and see if they are someone you are interested in. Pretending like looks don't matter is idealist at best. Unfortunately we are not that simple. You even admitted to it being part of (about)20% of a relationship. For every paycheck you get, give away 20% and see how you feel when it's gone.
When size and shape are relative it looks good. Find what flatters your body (should you wear flats, heels? Long socks, stockings, etc. But if you still are self conceious and want to make your legs look smaller, then go with a dress that flares out a bit, then your legs will look smaller, same with shorts and skirts. If they are super tight, then they will just draw attention to the larger part of your lower body.
