Probably a stupid question, I just joined this site. Is there a such thing as being too muscular. I been told this on multiple occasions within this year by other girls that I am too 'big'. Even asked a friend who was a girl and she says girls like slender/ muscular but toned guys not beef cakes.
I have never had a girlfriend so physical attractions matters to me. Lifting/mma/boxing are my hobbies. I train in all three and have gained quite a bit a muscle size, 125 to 160 in weight in 3 years. I still want to look good but I don't want to give up my hobbies.
So am I supposed to just give up on what I like to do?
I put a pic on my profile, I didn't want to share it as my main pic. But really I don't see how its unattractive. I am 5'5 so could it be cause I am short. I know girls like tall men. Just so unfair. I work my butt off and still get sh*t for not looking good.
I feel like I have to sacrifice one for the other :(
Yeah, too muscular IS a thing. Like Jonathan Horton. He's HUGE. I don't personally find it a huge turn-off, but most girls I know do. I think you're totally fine (both phrasings), although I suppose other girls could be turned off.
5'5 is rather short for me, although I'm 5'1 so I *probably* wouldn't let that be a deciding factor. I like to go for 5'8 or taller.
Don't give up your hobbies. You're most attractive when you love something, and there are girls out there who share my opinion that you look good.
Also remember that personality is a HUGE factor, even in physical attraction.
In the picture you don't look too muscular in my opinion. I think its good that you care about your body and if some girls don't like it who cares. People spend too much time thinking about looks and if they are going to hold that to a higher degree than your personality then they are just shallow and not worth your time anyway. Most girls would appreciate a guy who takes care of himself and so what if your 5'5' if the girls really are looking for some 6 foot plus tall guy, then again shallow, yes most girls want a guy taller than them but 5'4' is the average height for women so there's a lot of them shorter than you.
Just don't worry about dating so much, sure continuing looking and flirting, but don't let rejection get to you, its better to be single than to change yourself to please a shallow-minded person.
I think you're going for the wrong types of girls. I personally don't know many girls who wouldn't find your body type attractive. There are also plenty of girls who are under 5'5", so your height is not that bad.
I personally don't find extremely muscular men to be physically attractive, but personality always makes up for appearance, in my opinion. So, if you're an awesome guy to be around, then there's no reason to give up your hobbies. Also, why would you want to be with a girl that wasn't interested in the things you enjoy?
I did not know that guys complain about being called "too big"... lame joke I know :P
It's definitely not a bad thing. Not all girls are into the slender guys but I personally find a very big muscular guy intimidating. I feel like like he could hurt me just by putting her arm around me lol (I know it's stupid). You should never changed who you are for anyone unless it's about drugs and stuff like that but of you course you already know that. You just need to find the right girl who will like you for you. There are plenty out there trust me.
Honestly I think that it isn't a bad thing, but that's my opinion. I like guys who are active and like to improve themselves. Other girls will have other opinions. Don't change who you are and what you like because of some girls and their opinions. The right girl will come, just be patient.
Awe you don't have to give up anything, I think you're fine. Not too muscular imo. When I think of being too muscular, I think of muscle on muscle and like the guy could crush me my just resting his hand on me. You're no that muscly so you're fine. Good luck.
Simply said: You look good. Girls that complain about guys looking too muscley are usually talking about the guys you see on the covers of body building magazines that while caucasian and human...look like orange aliens that took steroids.
You might be on the shorter side, but I have a really cute 5'4 guy friend that is constantly pulling realllllly hot girls and even models. He's just smooth and confident. He even has what he calls an Ethiopian belly lol
So don't worry about this too much. You're a very attractive guy.
