Does a guy's body really matter to girls?

I don't mean if a guy is obese or something. Is it a turn off if a guy doesn't have 6 or 8 packs or just doesn't have an athletic body?

  • YES IT MATTERS DO NOT LISTEN TO THE WOMEN THEY ARE SHALLOW AS FUCK

    when I was young I was skinny like you

    then i started to do exercise
    and eat more and build muscle
    by the time I hit like 15 years old

    the girls kept touching my abs
    and arms and blah blah blah
    trust me its gets annoying after a while

    but yes YOU NEED TWO THINGS
    either a good face
    or a good body
    or both

    you look like an average guy
    so my advice build muscle and work out
    im telling you this from EXP

  • Not willing to date a chubby/obese guy nor will I date a guy that looked like he took one too many steroids. I think there is a nice middle in which the picture you provided fits. The criteria is be skinny and you're good, but if you have a six pack, it is preferred.

  • I'm not going to lie and say I don't enjoy eye-candy, because I do, but no, it's not really a big deal. Personality is so much more important. Besides, everyone has different tastes. I, for one, have never found 6 pack abs all that attractive.

  • i care more about his personality. i am no model by any objective standards, so i can't be a hypocrite and expect a six-pack. i'm not gonna lie. yes, the guy in the pic is hot. but it takes more than hotness to make me love a guy. as long as he is tall, broad-shouldered, and thin to a degree or average weight, i do not mind at all.

    • He has to be tall! For you to love the guy.
      Load of bullshit.
      You women nowadays have no idea what love is.

  • Body is important to a certain extent, as there are bodies that kill my attraction (obese bodies, for example). But when it comes to fit bodies is more a plus for me. A body approximately like that guy's looks really nice. Denying that would be a lie. But for me a face do more. I mean, between a cute faced guy who is not fit but neither too fat and a average/meh faced guy who has a hot body, I would feel a greater attraction for the cute faced. So it's not a turn off if the guy has no 6 pack.

  • Yes. I got preferences, like that guy in the photo does nothing for me. I like chest hair and some meat on my men. Like the guy in this photo, but with more hair on his chest and stuff.

  • It is a turn off if he is not athletic at all. Again, I care more about pecs, biceps, triceps, shoulders and back than abs... as long as you don't have a fat belly it is fine... just don't be lazy and get skinny fat. actually, fat on the hips, bum and legs is the worst for guys as it makes them look feminine.

  • Personally, I’m usually turned off by really defined abs like the guy in the picture, but I appreciate someone who stays in shape. Fit but not obvious, try-hard, meathead fit is ideal for me.

  • Who doesn't wish they had abs?

    No it doesn't matter. Yeah that body looks hot but so do lots of other different body types. For me I would prefer to be with a guy who had a not of meat on him rather than someone who didn't and was like a stick.

    Muscles and abs are great but no it doesn't really matter if you have them or not as long as your happy in your own skin.

  • 99% of guys won't get anywhere near this level of definition.
    I'm not into it myself, when you touch it it almost feels just like tight meat.
    I don't like obesity because it's just unhealthy and it shows that the person doesn't care for themselves and that they're just too plain lazy to look after themselves. I have no time for that amount of apathy.

  • Each girl is attracted to certain body types. Like some guys like big boobs, other small ones or average sized, or the booty size or...
    So do girls like nerdy thin boys, others like the dad bod, some the slightly athletic, other fully muscular...

  • Yes, to a degree. It's all part of the package. Chemistry. Voice. Face. Body. It all combines to lead to physical attraction. No one thing is a deal breaker to me. Personality most of all, but cannot rule out the physical.

  • No. I don’t care for abs. The thing about having an athletic body, it’s attractive to us bcus it shows us that he takes care of himself, maybe he’s sporty which is hot cause he has an interest that we can talk about or I can go to watch his games or meets, he eats well, etc. prehistorically it’s probably attractive cause he can like, go hunt for food for us faster and run away from dangerous shit quicker and all. but no, in my personal opinion don’t be like obese or anorexic, and no need for him to be a bodybuilder either. Just somewhere in the middle is perfect.

  • I think many girls have an ideal "body type" they like. For example, I find bulked fit guys physically attractive above all else (a little fat on them, and I'm not a 6-pack fan personally). That's part of what will attract my interest initially, however I love anything and everything about a guy I fall in love with. At that point, that superficial stuff doesn't matter (just stay healthy!). It's a plus if a guy has a nice body, meaning he takes care of himself. Just do that and be healthy, and you will be fine 😊

  • For me I’m not really into any “ripped” guys. I used to think that looks was all that mattered but now I really don’t care as long as the person makes me happy. Obesity/ over weight is a turn off however for me the guy doesn’t need to have the “model” body

  • I think any girl/woman who claims it really doesn't is either lying or fooling themselves. We all have a deep rooted preference for beauty, whether or not we're genuine people who care about personality the most, no one can claim that looks doesn't matter at all. Which is why I always call BS on those who do. Because I know there's someone out there they wouldn't be able to date because of their bad looks.

  • Most women don’t really care about men’s bodies because they aren’t as visual as men are. It doesn’t matter how physically fit he is. Unfortunately most women tend to put more emphasis on Personality and or financial stability.

    Of course there are some women out there who do put a lot of emphasis on a man’s face and body but they are less common.

  • In a general sense, no.

    I always say: "men value beauty and fertility". "women value status".

    Status is defined as the characteristics that determine a man's status among men (career, desirability among women, charisma, leader of his male pack, income, etc).

  • Well, physical attraction plays a big part, but when someone (be it girl or guy) is enamored or in love with someone, they will always be attractive to them.

    My girlfriend is a lot more attractive than me and I don't honestly understand what she sees in me physically, yet she's attracted to me, both physically and emotionally.

  • I’m a pretty healthy person, I don’t have a 6 pack or veiny muscles, which I don’t find attractive so maybe that’s a good thing? I wouldn’t mind if a girl said I should eat excercise to get some if she wants them but they shouldn’t be pushy about it. Damn right I would go to the gym with her if she wanted it though :)

And i guess many girls dont want too skinny guys , i mean they want someone at least little bit bigger then them selfs. And i guess its not hard, just eat little more and you will be bigger then every girl

  • From what am experiencing my self is women are attracted to me because of their husbands/partners being overweight and careless about their body. I have few friends when they reached age 29 or 30 they just started being careless about their bodies and they got fat (both females and males) while the other is trying to stay in shape and making few healthy benefits for their own. This is just reality , a partner seeing their SO letting it go and they get fat do get tired and start looking at others who has a nice body (in their opinion) and not a must to be bulked or works out just thin.

  • Based on my own experience: it doesn't. (Well, unless you're morbidly obese or something.)
    Thanks to good genetics and a fast metabolism, I've always had a very decent, athletic looking body without having to do a lot of work to earn it. Even still, I had zero (literally zero) female attention throughout high school and even university. It started getting better over the last year, but only because I forced myself to take action and stop being shy and awkward around girls.
    Moral of the story: a good body won't get you anywhere, it's nice to have it obviously, but it's something you get for your own appreciation, not anyone else's. As cheesy as it sounds, what matters really is your personality and self-confidence.
