That guy you gave as an example has a really hot body and isn't what most girls think of when they think of body builders. Many think of the ones muscles and veins popping out all over the place. The ones whose body fat percentages are extremely low and their muscles stick out like they're going to burst from their skin. That looks disgusting.
For me, it's not so much that I don't find it attractive. If I see a guy who's really built and muscular, it's more of a turn-off due to his appearance being a high priority to him, as I know that maintencance of a muscular build usually requires many hours spent at the gym. If his appearance is a very high priority to him, from the guys that I know or have been with in the past he tends not to have much to talk about with me (or substance, for lack of a better word).
No, he's not a 10. He's like a 4 to me. His hair is fugly and his muscles creep me out. And yes, I agree with what pretty much most girls have said already. Guys who work out that much are just crazy in my opinion. They spend too much time at the gym, too much time fussing over how they look, too much time fussing over what they eat and don't eat, I don't know. It's like asking why most guys prefer dating girls who look natural, over girls who cake their face with makeup and spend tons of money on expensive clothes/jewelry/plastic surgery. Most girls prefer guys who don't look like that, because it's like they're more down to earth and not incredibly high maintenance. And yes, most guys who work out that much tend to become extremely self-absorbed and cocky. It's just not attractive to me. And it wouldn't surprise me if this guy is on steroids. Even less attractive. I want a guy who's fit for sure, but not to the point where he looks like he spends his entire life at the gym while chugging down protein shakes. Just ew.
Zyzz was sexy when he was skinny and when he got buff, he was just one of those guys who was attractive regardless.
But I don't want to date any guy who could beat the shit out of me with his pinky. I don't know if its a self preservation thing, or what. I dated a guy like that ONCE he was as sweet as a teddy bear. But it sucked not being able to play fight and wrestle with him. Being picked up and what not is fun, but the size difference is still intimidating.
I'd rather go with an average/normal sized guy. I know I'd never be with anyone abusive, but still, I'd like to know I can defend myself, just incase. lol
Because girls don't base their interest level on a body. Girls don't like body builder types because so many of them are douchebags. Regardless of whether or not it's true, when girls see somebody who clearly focuses the majority of their time on their body (far beyond just staying in shape), the assumption is that he is shallow, superficial, probably completely obsessed with "health" (aka which supplements to take and when, etc) and "fitness" (aka LEG DAY, ARM DAY, blah blah blah), and probably equally shallow and superficial about women's bodies. Most women have enough body image issues on their own that they don't need to date someone they feel like is constantly criticizing their body -- whether that fear is all in the chick's head or if the guy is actually doing it either implicitly or explicitly.
I'm going to be judgmental now but hear me out. Pretty much the majority of built guys that I know personally are VERY cocky, arrogant and self entitled. They obsess over themselves, think all girls will bend over backwards because of their body and walk around like those guys from Jersey Shore. Am I saying ALL built guys are like that? No. But from experience, to date all the built guys I've had to do with were all arrogant and full of themselves. Also secondly, the appearance of lots of muscles are just not attractive looking to me from a visual point of view. For some girls it might look sexy for me, not so much. That guy you linked just oozes arrogance and I can tell he thinks he's God's gift to mankind. I'm not into guys like that and as I said, the physical appearance of it doesn't excite me.
This guy looks like he puts way too much attention to his looks : too much gel hair, too much forced tan, too much ego. It sends a strong message : 'I like my body, I worked for it, and I can't help but showing and looking at my big muscles in the mirror'. I know is a stereotype, but that's the first impression it gives. It's fine to be proud of your muscles because you worked hard for it, but balance is key. I'd rather date someone with less muscles, but who got those muscles by doing sports and enjoying it.
I don't know its just too much… it almost looks fake… [i know its not]
I don't know, never been a fan. i like a guy with muscle but this just makes his form look different altogether… like in order to get a bod like that, would he even have much of a life outside the gym? it seems like a bit of a mess up of priorities to me. so apart from his looks, it turns me off that he is obsessed over his weight…
Yeah, I also don't agree he's really hot. Too much muscle and you turn from being hot to being not so hot and scary. Plus most women like relaxed kinda guys - usually guys who put that much effort into their image will demand the same and more from you and that's a no, no.
Personally, I'm more into a lean, healthy, athletic-like kinda body than those muscular things got after spending every day/night at the gym working out in front of the mirror and by eating just protein for X months... Think that, unlike men, woman like their men more natural. Maybe that's just me though.
He actually has attractive face which is a big plus. It's not my ideal body type and I'm not into tattoos but I'd def date him. He's attraative and muscles still look normal. What most girls mean when they say they don't like body builders is this us.cdn281.fansshare.com/.../...zyzz-1551095732.jpg
Of course you choose the answer that agrees with you as most helpful lmao. I'm sorry, but I don't want to cut myself on my boyfriend, thanks.
There is such a thing as too much muscle. It looks unnatural and weird, like a joke. As for the photo you included, he doesn't seem to be TOO big but he does look douchey... not my type, haha!
that guy is a prime example of a butterface you can really tell from his before pics too
The guy you posted is attractive (though his hair is horrible), the problem is that's not the body I think of when someone says "body builder". This is what I think of when I hear that term. www.google.com/search That's just too much steroid-induced muscle for me.
It's often 'too far' for many girls... they like muscle but not too much. Some girls do go for the bodybuilder look although others see many negatives, especially the hours of time in gyms and steroids guys use to get to that stage... I mean Zyzz was younger than me when he died of a heart attack, I think some girls would stress about that kind of stuff.
You don't see it because you're not a girl, you're never going to know what the other sex is attracted to other than by what they tell you and by norms. Being fit and toned is one thing but the guy in that picture is definitely overdone, those giant muscles can come off as disgusting to a lot of girls.
I know my girlfriend wouldn't like that, though she's put off by big muscles more than most I think.
Because women find power attractive. To a point being fit and muscular is consequently a big plus. But attempting to get ahead by being sexually desirable is seen as feminine and a little weak. Women dream about celebrities and athletes (who are fit, rich and popular). They don't drool the way men do over strippers or unknown models, because those guys have a low status in the world.
That said, some girls do like pretty big muscles - more girls like it then guys who have it, so if its the look you like and you can get it safely, have fun. You just don't need to be that big to attract women.
Because 9 times out of 10 it does come with an ego attatched and the guy usually has "small dick syndrome" and is trying to prove his masculinity in other ways. It's often a sign of being insecure and thats a massive turn off.
How many hours a week does he spend doing pointless weight lifting to get that big? A great many i would wager. Unless he is a professional that needs to be that big its simply a time drain and not the best indicator of being a fun person.
