Why is everyone so obsessed with jawline?

People talk about it and girls swoon over it all the time. I literally don't care one way or another, it's not something I pay attention to or even notice. What's the big deal? What's the appeal? Maybe I'm weird.

  • Hmm... Honestly I've never taken any attention to it.

    If I had to guess a reason why though, it is because men traditionally are associated (facially wise) with hardness and women with softness. A strong jawline is considered a prominent feature. It is often (whether subconsciously or not) related with men and strong facial features.

    The thing is though, what people were conditioned to believe as attractive changes for each person. No one was raised the exact same. You aren't weird or anything, it just happens to be preferences.

  • I think that's one of the top facial features women look for, whether knowingly or not.
    Brings out that "chiseled" definition. It's the opposite of a soft-low testosterone face. Things like that.

    The unfortunate truth about us guys is you can't really workout a jawbone lol.

    BRB chewing more gum to work jaw muscle.

    • Exactly you have to be born with it, women are attracted to a good jawline because it's a sign of good genetics and because it's a masculine trait, luckily we were born with it.

    • Show All
    • @Phoenix98 by the way , my high school has the neck curl machine, you know what I'm talking about? I never ever see that thing in the gyms these days.

    • Yeah I know that machine, I wish my gym had it I have to use a iron weight and hang off of a bench partly to work my neck.

  • Large jaw usually indicates a wide palate, straight teeth, proper breathing posture, and strenuous chewing, meaning a healthy lifestyle and a healthy face.

    I'll know you're a liar if you don't find any of the men attractive.

  • its because a jaw line is a masculine trait. same with a cleft chin and prominent brow ridges. when women are in heat they seek these traits subconsciously.

  • I remember when I was a little skinny, my jawline was actually very prominent but it looked bad on me, maybe if i was well built and had the same body fat percentage it would look great, even now, i have a lean looking face with a bit of a jaw but i think being too chiselled actually looks weird, 10-12% body fat would be the best to be. Take tom cruise for instance, he doesn't have any chiselled or sharp facial features or anything but he is still unarguably in the top 5-6 handsomest men in the world on his worst day

  • I don't know why but I like nice jawlines on girls.

    There's this girl who sits across the room from me in one of my classes and I'll ocassonally glance over and admire her jawline. It's very aesthetic.

  • Meh, girls don't trully care about that.
    That's just a common caracteristic of models, so people see it on people that make movies, series and stuff... then it started to be a symbol of sexyness and wish around common people.

    Yeah, kinda stupid.

    You don't date girls so you wouldn't understand. I don't know why, nor do I care to learn. I just enjoy my preference.

  • A strong jawline is indicative of high testosterone and being "manly." That's why it's so popular with straight women for example, but I think it can add to the overall handsomeness of a man's face. It's not the first thing I look forward or swoon over.

    • Ehhh if that were the case of high testosterone then women would fawn over hairy bodies... Which most don't.

    • @schnipdip Many women like scruff and some body hair, not when they look like bears. ;P

    • They're finding that jaw breath has nothing to do with testosterone and has more to do with diet, tongue posture, breathing posture (nasal vs mouthbreathing), and to a lesser degree genetics.

      Humans are the only animal on the planet who have crooked teeth, and it's theorized that it's because of our softer diet and poor breathing posture. We all should have near perfectly straight teeth including wisdom teeth, but we don't.

  • Nice, big jaw lines are a major factor in whom I find attractive in actors. But when it comes to guys I know, I hardly ever focus on their jaw lines.

  • I've figured out that I like a certain body composition in men - it's not body fat percentage, exactly, but more distribution. Therefore certain hands are unattractive to me, for instance, because they are pudgy or too skinny. The ideal distribution (to me) tends to go along with a certain shape/visibility of jawline.

    These guys can be big or really slim, but their body composition (proportionally speaking) is always pretty similar. Let me try to find some examples.

  • Typically guys with a defined jawline are just more attractive.. But in the end it always comes down to what you personally think makes a guy attractive. For some girls... Like you... Thry Don't really care about their mans jaw line. It's just a matter of perspective.

  • For me, they don't look good on any guy but still many guys can pull it off. It is a manly feature which is why it attract girls. I barely notice it or pay attention to it too, but there are some guys that I saw irl whose jaw lines grabbed my attention. I just want to trace my hand over them. I imagine maybe if you hold them while kissing this just reminds you that you are with a man? lol

  • I like a good jawline mainly because I normally just appreciate the little things.. Even on myself, I don't care about my boobs or whatever, i'm into stomach, bit of ass and legs. On a guy I don't really care about abs, but that's a bonus.. the things I love are shoulder, jawlines and when they're driving and then change gear and their arms are holy fuck..
    But yeah.. just little things I guess :')
