I would rather be average looking physique-wise but be very deceptively strong.
I find it pathetic that so many guys put their sole focus of their being on attracting the female gender that they would prefer to have a ripped body but be weak as sh*t!
Having strength is useful for me personally (since I do like being physically active).
Plus, if I DID take the flipside and choose the ripped body but weak strength, my CONFIDENCE because of my lack of physical strength will counteract any positives when it comes to attracting the female gender.
Not a ripped and fit body because it would complicate life more and I don't want a guy who is vain like that because they he would more than likely push me down and make me feel really low as a person, I like to feel as an equal with a guy plus guys like that tend to be work work orientated than relationship orientated, I prefer average to in between average and fit, vanity in person is a real turn off for me so I stray away from guys who work out a lot especially if they are more work orientated because they tend to be very emotionally unavailable and even if I can be very attracted to smart guys who love their work I know what would happen if I dated them, peoples health says a lot about people and guys who are buff generally is more concerned with trying too hard to impress those outside me and him.
When I was younger I used to gym for girls and the aesthetic side really appealed to me, but since I started really strength training I love the benefits of having extra strength. I also play sports ( Rugby, hiking, Cycling) and function is always better than aesthetics. I'm not as cut as I used to be, but I still attract the same type of girls I attracted before
definitely the average look, but some good power. This allows you to positively surprise people when they need help with something heavy or something. Sure, you don't look like you are in shape, but I think the strength is more important than looks in this situation.
Also, if you go for the buff looks, you will eventually disappoint people because you aren't as strong as you seem. For all they know, you could be on steroids or something.
