I personally think it is unattractive.It is unhealthy to have a pot belly like that and most of the time shows that person doesn't take very good care of themselves.There is a difference between someone who is naturally a bit chubby that can't help it and someone with a pot belly.A pot belly is usually caused by an unhealthy diet and lack of excercise and,in some cases,is even caused by drinking.I am appalled that anyone would put their health in danger for a silly trend.I am naturally a very hyper person and I like to do activities such as hiking,jogging,basketball,soccer,baseball,rock climing,etc. and I need someone that is going to be able to keep up with me.I'm not saying that a man has to be perfect,no one is.I'm simply saying that a person should take good care of themselves.Please don't take this the wrong way.
I think it's because of hormonal birth control. Apparently it changes what women are attracted to slightly, making them attracted to slightly effeminate men. Since the pill is becoming so popular, it's really effecting what the majority of women sees as attractive. Potbellies are essentially curves, which are feminine. They are somewhat suggestive of female fertility.
Just my theory. I don't find potbellies especially attractive myself. Although I don't need a guy to be totally ripped in order to find him attractive, I do want a guy who takes care of himself and seems healthy. To me potbellies- very noticeable ones anyway- don't seem healthy.
i hate potbellies on guys. if I work out to keep my stomach look good why would I want some guy who obviously doesn't care what he looks like? how can abs ever be out? if flat stomachs never went out for girls I don't see why they should for guys. it just looks slobby to me
