Why do women like guys that have all of their muscles exposed? I don't look like I'm in shape, but I can still take down my friend that looks stronger then me. It puzzles me.
What if the guy is slightly over weight, due to medical reasons? Some people do not know that being over weight is not entirely their fault, Some had to be over weight to save their lives.
To explain, I had a heart condition called tachycardia. The link provided gives details. In short, my heart was to big for my tiny body. I was 6 or 7 when it presented it self, and I had constant chest pains.
I don't think there's anything wrong with being a little overweight- I think it has more to do with your own perception. "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent" - Eleanor Roosevelt
It really sounds like something you're self conscious about. Have you spoke to your doctor about helping you with a fitness regime or eating plan? I'm not suggesting you need to lose weight or even do anything rigorous, but even regular walks, even if short, are good for your body and overall health. There are many foods you can also incorporate into your diet if you aren't already, that are good for the heart: salmon, oatmeal, spinach to name a few. I understand your weight may be due to a medical condition, but you can't use that as a crutch. Basically I don't want you saying, well I'm already overweight so 2 more slices of pizza won't matter or I won't go for a walk because it won't make a difference. You know?
At any rate, I think people who exude confidence (not in a cocky way) are attractive. That's something that has nothing to do with physical appearance. Love yourself and others will too :)
Its because (well, my point of view) that guys who have muscles may be more threatening and since I'm a very dominant person, a threat is interesting...that and it's amusing when a guy's shoulder blades move...AND YOU ARE NOT FAT!!!
Because it's not only men who are visually stimulated. It goes both ways. Like all women does not look like replicas of Pamela Anderson, even though the average man probably would prefer her for sex. Because it's alluring. Also think that your friend invest in his look/body, which makes him seem more "groomed", biologically that is. Sorry.
