-Say you are play wrestling and you win easily. You have no doubt that if it were a real fight, you'd TOTALLY kick his butt.
-You arm wrestle and you are like: "Really?" I can beat you THAT easily"?
-You are moving furniture or heavy boxes and can lift more than he can. He can't keep up with you.
-You are walking in the city at night and you realize that you would be better able to defend yourself than he would.
Would you date a guy like that?
Would you prefer to have a man who is stronger than you are and feel protected or is it an old fashioned gender stereotype that the man has to be the stronger partner in the couple?
I'm pretty much THAT guy. Small framed, skinny, very hard to gain much strength or muscle. I do OK socially and date different women but my body type , strength level always seems to be an issue in some way.
Women know from the start I am not a bodybuilder but they are surprised when they realize they might well be stronger.
Not looking for advice on exercise or gaining weight/muscle. I've tried that in the past and I made some progress but it took up most of my life. I'm at a healthy body height/weight ratio, just not built to be that strong and I'm fine with it. Just curious what women think since it's been an issue in some of my relationships.

Well... we wouldn't get much accomplished in terms of moving things then lol
But I mean, sure. We'd just hire people to move stuff for us while we hit the gym like crazy so we can lift things ourselves one day!2
