Most Helpful Girl

  • Skinnyfat (dead sexy in my opinion)

    Skinny (looks almost the same as skinnyfat, probably has gorgeous backbones)

    Chubbyfat (this came forth after I completely fell in love with Stepher fry and realized that I love that wonderful gay man)

    Ottermode (so okay, it is sometimes fun to feel that six back in my hands)

    Builtfat (hidden muscles that come forth when you tickle them? Cutes thing EVER)

    Bearmode (I think Till Lindeman is similar to this, and I would definitely not kick him out of my bed!)

    Athletic (Meh... Nice to look at some times, but to me it is often just meh.), build(too much for me. Way, way too much...)

    Fat as fatass (Reminds me too much of my father. At an older age, it goes, fine, not every one stays on the chubbyfat size, but at this point in life, it reminds me too much of my dad so no...)

    Bodybuilder (No. Just. No.)

    I love skinny guys, but I always feel like THEY might not like me, because I'm build big. Not meaning I'm hugely fat (a few extra pounds with big t*ts) but people say that my body's structure does make me look a bit... Bigger. Like if you shove me, I would not move. Bump in to me and you will be the one falling down. If you know Miranda Hart, I'm similar to her in body time (well, not as TALL as she is but still...) meaning her body is a bit intimidating towards men because she seems... Big. And I think that would turn off most "skinny" guys from me. They would look smaller and skinnier compared to me, and what man would want that? So I'm left with gazing at them from across the bar while they dance with the smaller girls and spin them around easily, while I would probably just stomp them into the ground with my clumsy feet.

What Girls Said 57

  • I mean, personality is bigger than physical appearance for me. An average to slightly funny looking guy can be attractive if he is passionate about something, kind, and confident.

    If I'm thinking objectively about my past physical attractions, the face is actually really important. You don't have to be a supermodel, but a nice face is attractive on a guy. As for hair, it doesn't really matter as long as it looks like you wash it and get it cut/managed in some way.

    In response to your initial question about body type, I'm not one to refuse a six pack, but it's not a necessity. My boyfriend is quite thin, but his personality makes up for it, and honestly, when you're physically close to someone, it doesn't really matter what they look like. You're not necessarily looking so much as feeling a warm body next to you.

    And as a side note, sometimes a guy can be TOO good looking. If a guy is ridiculously fit, I feel like I would judge my own body super harshly, haha. And it's super unattractive when a guy is OCD about his health (crazy diet fads and needing to work out to look good as opposed to just feel good mentally and physically).

    PS wtf is ottermode?

  • Ottermode is definitely my favorite -- I think being fit with just a little bit of muscle is perfect. I also really like skinny and skinnyfat, though. Athletic is okay, although distinct six pacs like that tend to make me pre-judge a guy by assuming he’s just another meathead who’s really into himself. The rest of them are equally unattractive to me.

    1.) Ottermode

    2.) Skinnyfat

    3.) Skinny

    4.) Athletic

    I don't find 7-10 particularly attractive... That being said, I've dated super-skinny guys and obese guys, and wanted to rip their clothes off regardless of the fact that, in retrospect, they weren't stereotypically good-looking. It's amazing how much your physical perception of someone changes based on other factors of attraction (personality, scent, touch, etc.).

  • Although I'm hot for a few celebrities who have the abs and chests and such, I'm really mostly attracted to the face... But my ideal body type would be something like chubbyfat, skinnyfat, builtfat... Nothing unhealthy, but nothing super skinny either (which I guess could also be unhealthy).

  • I'm sorry if this isn't very helpful, but it really depends on the person for me...their personality and other physical features. I'd say for the most part, I'm attracted to men who are tall and strong...muscular but not too muscular, a little bit of a gut doesn't hurt anything. I don't know how else to describe it other than "manly" looking men...rugged maybe. I've liked skinny guys before though, even though I was a little insecure, because they were smaller than me. The guy I've been with for the last few years and my first real boyfriend is a big guy. He's got a lot of muscle, but he's also got a lot of fat over that muscle. I think he looks great though. I can honestly say there's not a single thing I would change about his appearance. Whether or not that's because I love him, I'll never know, but I don't think that part is what matters. It's all about personal preference, and personality plays a lot into how attractive I find someone, no doubt.

  • I can't see the order, but to be totally honest, the only body type I wouldn't date is someone who is clearly overweight. It comes off as being sloppy and careless about your appearance and due to the growing amount of overweight people who have managed to get their weight down so that they are healthy and confident so I KNOW it's possible. There's no excuse.

  • I like skinny tall guys, or tall built-but-still-thin-ish. Built is good. I don't like guys with "a little extra" or chubby or really fat. I couldn't date a really fat guy. I really just couldn't.

  • that diagram has been posted here before and is stupid.

    "Builtfat" guy isn't even fat. He probably has ~15% body fat. Built and Bodybuilder are near-identical.

    In fact, most of these diagrams vary to some degree, so there is a small degree of arbitrariness to it all. The terms are OK, but usually the the pics associated with some of them seem fallacious.

  • Holy sh*t there's a lot of stuck up females on here. I'm shaking my head in disbelief because I'm always hearing and reading questions/answers from females saying looks and body type don't matter to them. What a joke. If any guy would of said he wouldn't date an overweight girl he would be the biggest jerk on earth. Can someone say double standard? Bunch of hypocrites.

    • Chill. Not all girls would call that guy a jerk. Lots of women see red when guys make weight comments because they've seen too many of those same guys who say "oh I like skinny girls" go around and call heavier girls "whales" and other awful things. At the end of the day, there is nothing wrong with having a *personal* preference, BOTH guys and girls. There IS something wrong with being a d***/bitch and making other people feel bad because they don't meet your preferences.

    • @CottonCandydreams and that's putting it nicely.

  • Most women will say Ottermode, and then athletic as a second. It's funny a lot of guys think they need to be buff to impress women, yet many women find hulk-like muscles excessive.

  • Skinny 16%
    Ottermode 31%
    Athletic 27%
    -------------
    TOTAL 74%

    So the vast majority, about 3/4 of women prefer thin men (excluding skinnyfat but im sure it's higher in preference than thicker ones). Sure the sample size is not a big one, but why it still sounds to me like something I expected? I have heard so many times how women prefer boyish bodies over something we consider manly (I do not mean fat by that). I find it pretty fascinating because I feel like men have wider taste when it comes to women. Sure some like thin but there are a lot who like really thick too. Most will prefer something in between. Maybe there is a poll somewhere calling bs on my hunch and I have just not seen one yet since I found this site like 5 mins ago.

  • Your body hardly matters as long as you aren't massively under or over weight.

    Face and height are vastly more important.

    Girls won't f*** you if they think you are too ugly or too short, a six pack or large biceps won't change that.

    • BUT BUT what if you have a nice personality sense of humor and confident? Surely those things are what women want and not body types! -_-

  • It's funny because in college I was pure BUILT (5'9", weighed 210, ran 2 miles in 12:50), just chiseled as all f***... and now that I'm older I look just like BUILTFAT from this chart and I get WAY more attention / looks from girls.

    As a guy you wouldn't think it but girls seem to love big large and burly muscular types. it's strange (although looking at results in this question seems to be pretty accurate among the female-types)

    • I don't think it's about whether you're strong or not. I think it's 100% about what your look is. You might be muscular, but if it's covered in fat and you LOOK overweight, then that's what matters to women in terms of attraction. I know somebody who is 6'1 205, looks in shape, so I'm betting you probably look chubbyfat, but with some weight loss (25-30lbs) you'd look built fat. Obviously this is just a guess.

  • To all the women who said looks and body type doesn't matter for dating just having confidence sense of humor and personality... LOLOLOLOLOLOL.

    I promise they will date those types they listed with or without those traits (preferably with)

    I see a lot of familiar names who said looks don't matter too.

    Straight up shallow hypocrites. (YOU ALL KNOW WHICH ARROW TO CLICK)

    • That's because you have no appreciation of the sign of health that a woman's body is. Healthy individuals trust their instincts which are ingrained into them by their ancestor's reasoning and people against this are either rated poorly or are following a degenerate trend.

      As if it were impossible to find a beautiful woman with a great personality.

    • But you won't marry a non-virgin. You do judge things on an external factor. I just read your list of 24 things she may be a slut, or some title like that. You say you care about your partner but you said so yourself you'd refuse to marry a woman if she wasn't a virgin. And if you're so against women having premarital sex and people having premarital sex in general why are you having it? AND you do know that by being immoral and sleeping around with women you're tainting a future wife!
