  • Nope. I like my women to look like women. At my age I expect stretch marks, cellulitis and varicose veins from childbearing, not so perky tits that dangle perfectly into my mouth when they are on top and hips with love handles I can actually hold onto when I'm feeding it from behind. I want my woman to be real and natural. Not have a body she has to diet for and to be confident about her body.

  • I'm going to leave it at "maybe" because I could never really know if the media has influenced my preferences.

    I've liked thinner girls since I was about 4 years old when I first really started noticing girls. And it's never really changed. It's always been that way for me, even as I've been able to watch the number of available thin women decline significantly over my lifetime.

    If we weren't shown thin women in the media ever, would I have just become attracted to the majority, which is slightly overweight? I have no idea.

  • When women think men expect perfection, it feels like a major form of projection. Not only do women probably have higher forms of standards in general but they have this irrational impulse to compete with women on the covers of magazines.

    Most guys simply want a girl they are personally attracted to. Yes, that generally means she's expected to be in at least relatively good shape but this seems like a fair expectation and it certainly doesn't mean we only want model level women.

    Women want all that too PLUS they generally tend to expect a certain level of financial success attached to the man.

  • I do think the media can skew our perception of normal and cause our standards to scale upwards.

  • I have high standards because I work my arse off to look and feel good. Any woman who doesn't put in the effort doesn't meet my standard.

  • I have pretty decent standards because i think they are good. I know that generally girls have higher standards than boys so i raised the bar somewhat.

  • No. I think women have always had high standards because of the fairy tales their read as a kids and reinforced through romantic movies over the years.

  • I stopped caring about what the media told me to consider attractive years ago. My expectations are based on real people, not doctored images and unholy amounts of plastic surgery.
