It's about looks and personality. Girls for the most part will look at looks (at a smaller level than guys) personality, and financial status. Guys don't care about financial status in their partner as much as women do. And that can actually trump the guys card of him having it harder or not. Both genders have their difficulties. I think it's easier for a woman to score a guy than it is a guy to score a woman. But I think it's easier for men to be more attractive in the sense of what women look for than a woman be attractive in what men look for. If any of this makes sense at all.
To be honest, as you get older, in shape and groomed well cuts it for women too.
When you're young, lots of women are in shape, so being 'pretty' is important.
By mid 30's, most women are fat, if you have a gym toned body, good hair style and dress well, even if you're not naturally hot, you'll still be considered pretty desireable to men looking in your age range.
I'd argue the opposite. Girls are expected to be slim, while guys are expected to have muscles - the only way to build muscle bulk is to work hard in the gym, whereas all you need to do to stay slim is eat healthily.
Yes I agree, but I don't mind. I like that there is something to motivate me to always smell nice, be clean, be toned and stuff,if it wasn't for that I would be a fat slob watching TV instead of going to the gym :)
Yes because men are more visually focused than women. To be really attractive to women a man has to be in reasonable shape take care of his hair, have good hygiene, and as long as he doens't have anything really "wrong" like awful teeth or skin or something, girls will probably find him attractive as long as he has a good personality. Bonus points if he is smart funny and has a good job.
For a man, an attractive woman generally has to just be very pretty or sexy often a combination, or maybe even a girl slightly above average with a lot of makeup and sexy clothes who is a big flirt. But a girl def has to take better care of herself for a man to find her attractive. Generally her hair has to look good, some makeup, shaved, nice clothes, the works
