I have been working out hard for the past 13 months. I have always been sick and tired of being called skinny, and honestly have felt like less of a man because of this. So I decided to do something about it, and have gone from 120lbs to 150lbs. I have also increased my bench press from around 110lbs to 185lbs. I feel like I get some respect from guys now, but still get called skinny by girls. I'm only 18 so hopefully I'll fill out a little more as I get older. Anyways, do you think 150lbs is too skinny for a guy? My profile pic shows my before and current body pics. Is 150 and toned still too small?

Guys who love to lift will say you should be like 225 or something, I don't know.
Weight isn't a great measure. I drop down to 165ish to box. When i lose weight, women tell me 'don't lose too much weight!'. When i lose the weight, they think I look better. 150 lbs and ripped looks bigger than 180 and soft. Most guys your height are heavier than you but it's fat. If they got lean, they'd be as slim or slimmer than you.
You're not skinny, you're just not fat.
If you want to get bigger and can, go for it, but I'm not sure it will help much with girls. You're in the range where it's personal taste whether they like leaner or bulkier.0
