I absolutely love running. It’s my form of meditation. That said, I’m super thin. I have very much of a runner’s build and cannot gain weight for the life of me. My BMI hovers around 18 and I haven’t gained any weight in 3 years. I have to wonder if this build is unattractive. I’m not very bulky and am more tall and lean. I don’t have a huge appetite so even with lifting, I don’t put on much bulk.
Some people I’ve talked to said I should probably cut back on running, start eating more, and lifting more. But I really don’t want to. What do you think, is having a thin and tall build, a runner’s build unattractive?

I know plenty of people who find it attractive. And if you like it, then don't stop runnin. No need to change your hobby... You could then attract someone who isn't really your type. It is not my personal preference because I love lifting and have a decent amount of muscle on me, and like for my guy to have some as well. That said, I would not ever discount a guy completely just because he had a runner's build, it just doesn't happen to be what mostly catches my eye. I bet you have REALLY nice calves, and that is very attractive. I do also appreciate the endurance and discipline that it takes to be such a dedicated runner, and that is very attractive as well!0
