Yes, that extra leverage can be fun, too.
Lol. A bit raw, but fairly accurate. The pick you up part is funny, but I guess for women under 1m80 tall it works.
@soleil2666 I find it completely weird that someone thinks like throwing heavy shit and raw strength is a trend in romance.
Me Too (lol at that) - but if you look at the answers below, being tossed around, as a female, seems to be highly desired.

Is it attractive or impressive (for someone weaker)?
@soleil2666 being kind is attractive. That doesn't take physical strength.
I believe people who are physically imposing are the LAST to use that strength violently. They know they are physically competent and have no need to prove anything.. It's usually those who have low self esteem and feel threatened who act out most. The Chihuahua scenario. Wise people know violence is a last resort, no matter WHAT their size or strength. That's strength of character and a sound personality.
Oh goody. There's still hope for me!
As you always should!
Good position to be in!
Nice good chap.
I think he's talking about a stick skinny guy that looks really weak, but that is very strong and able.
@Truthatanycost Well, stick skinny ain't what I'd call attractive. That hunter had a quarter bouncing booty and some fine legs... He was lean and mean though... umm mmmm...
I meam fat but strong
@ElizaPam you got that right.
Well, as do us men - slender toned women with a brain between their ears. Now whether they carry their own luggage is a matter of equality.
Whats interesting is that the "Arnie" bodybuilder physique-- while impressive as a feat unto itself-- was essentially engineered to appeal to the male imagination. It was bred in the spirit of male competition and oneupmanship. Then it got commercialised as OG lifters started attaching their image to commercial gyms and workout programs from 80s through much of 90s. But it was never pursued on the basis of pursuing optimal sexual attractiveness. Women swoon over the likes of Chris Hemsworth today, but his physique is nothing compared to the sheer muscle mass found in the most hardcore bodybuilding circles.
@SomeGuyCalledTom I have found that females who fear for their safety (so, 3rd world or Ghetto environments) attach much more value to a guy's ability to 'protect' them in that physical sense. Those who are not concerned about it tend to stick with aesthetics of the physique (in which case being a body-builder looks grotesque).
@SomeGuyCalledTom Interesting you brought up Hemsworth. He was NOT a musclebound guy until he got the Thor role. He looked like a nice surfer. And he's slimmed down since he's no longer doing that role. He looks better and more natural. Thor's a god. Though it might get women salivating, he's a genetic freak that he can blow up that big. And his natural body build was nothing like that. He looked like a regular guy before then... And he looks better without it... And reasonably, that shit requires SO MUCH work and FOODand TIME to maintain... it IS unmaintainable. The millions of dollars he was paid made him do it... I'm sure he's glad it's over.
It is also a matter of being impressed by his strength - until you start to wonder well what if you have a fight with him. Goes for any ability. And the very idea of safety providing (and equality - all of the requests for female privilege are founded on the assumption they are owed protection for free - so let's see what MORE they can get. It's only the females who serve the army (Israelis, basically) that can value a man as a human being alone, not primarily a provider of brute force))
It is also an indicator of how much she messed up with her exes - if she hadn't, she won't be looking for muscles. If she has ticked him off and played dumb to it - she'll want to make sure the next guy can protect her.
*See men in black internat'l
@Screenwriter yeah i agree completely
@soleil2666 Where do you come up with THIS idea!!! Only women who serve in the army know the value of a man as a human being alone? I've never served in the army. From being raised around a father who cared and other males who were and are loving and caring, I have always known the value of men as human beings. In one rare case my father had to protect my mother from her violent, senile father. In one case when a man jumped and pistol whipped me I needed the help of close male friends to get me to the hospital. But, I managed to flip the guy over my back and get away... So I protected myself. It's good to know you have a few guys who can come to your aid and scare off a bad hombre bothering you. The bad hombres and incidents are few and far between. Men need protection from women who love them too. It usually isn't physical, but emotional support is equally valuable. Women and men share different ideas of strength that work well to have knowledge and expertise in... A few judo throws are just as handy as being cool headed in the face of a bully and knowing when to walk or RUN away...
TALK, walk or run away...
@Screenwriter Yeah, well, you'll have to serve to understand it. Victimisation, right.
@soleil2666 Victimization? What are you referring to? I think I know the value of men as human beings... You saying only women who experience male/female camaraderie and life and death situations know this?
@Screenwriter Yeah, but you don't know the value of waiting to go to a trench to die. Female genital mutilation of course kills many more people.
@soleil2666 what is so wrong with a woman wanting a man who will protect her from other men?
@ElizaPam It implies she has trouble with other men. Either because she provoked them or because she considers provoking them valid. Ghetto stories.
@soleil2666 provoke? Really? We don’t provoke men to hurt us. They just say we do as an excuse.
@soleil2666 Don't get smart with me, dude. Of course FGM kills very few women. It mostly makes them sexually miserable. What you're talking about is how comrades have each other's backs in life and death situations. I thought I might've been blinded in the eye that I was pistol whipped over and that my skull was fractured from the gun beating.. And I was depending on my friends to get me to help as I broke into a cold sweat and went into shock. It wasn't as dire, but they had my back.
They're freaks... I never tire of looking at arnold classics to see how bizarre they look. But the wirey hunter who cranked that boat the rest of the way out of the water had muscles inside of muscles. They only popped up when he needed them. It was stunning. My dad had that kind of strength. I think both of them could physically uproot saplings if they had to. That guy yanked a pole pushed into the mud to tie our boat to stabilize it while we sat in it to hunt. He asked me to pull the pole out. I couldn't budge it. He pulled it out like he was pulling a toothpick out of a pear. He might've weighed 185 lbs.
@Screenwriter Nice :) Thanks for that great comment.
id rather be strong and then be jacked... it's like the underdog scenario.
Pick one man:A) a bodybuilder with huge biceps who's never been in a fight and relies only on looks to intimidate othersB) a smaller framed guy with extensive MMA training and can effectively defend you and your family from even the most violent attacker
@SomeGuyCalledTom I'd pick "A".
Fair play, you seem to know what u want so go for it lol
@SomeGuyCalledTom The chances of our family being attacked are very small and might never even happen. But the chances of me having to look at him every day are 100%.
Strength is not overrated. The world is not a war zone lol. You think of strength only in the frame of conflict. People who lift weights do not do it to be able to beat people up or fight a gun battle. They do it for self improvement. They do it for health. They do it to look more sexually attractive. They do it because it increases bone density and allows you to be functional well into old age. Also people lift mostly for sport. To improve on the sport they play, they lift weights because being stronger is almost always better for sports depending on what it is.Of course anything can be taken to an extreme. Some people do steroids and kill themselves to “look big.” That doesn’t apply to the majority of the lifting community.
@Kaazsz Urban areas that are infested with violence like new Orleans, mississippi,& florida that make NY & LA look soft in comparable Will eat up any pretty boy who lifts for vanity like it's nothingWhat I got from your reply is that most of those youngsters lift for vanity, insecurity,& to an extent health benefits But at the end of the day if take any street car over some muscle head as an ally
You sound like a neckbeard.
@Kaazsz I live in reality man I never had mommy & daddy to protect me or to give me comfort since I never met them & never willThose suburban isolated "bubble boys & girls" are what Darwin was speaking off when it came to the ideology of "Survival Of The Fittest"I've lived in a few semi suburban neighborhoods & a lot of those "Gym Bros" & catty arrogant females were the most naive, arrogant,& easily scared types I've met Like I stated aboveI never knew my parents so I matured much faster than the majority of the people
No you’re a fat neckbeard that lives in his mother’s basement. If not, then I’d suggest you change the way you think. Fucking incel neckbeard fuck. Stop lying.
@Kaazsz you're 33 years old looking to start a flame war with a 19 year old You're trying to instigate some petty form of drama for reasons I'm not even aware of But that's on you I'm out & if you want to keep baiting me to respond then you're as free to do so
I’m not instigating. I’m telling your opinion is retarded and you sound like a neckbeard.
I think everyone can open a jar xD Even I can and I look like a pudding.
@Jemini_Crocket GIRL! Get out and walk off some of that wobble!!! Yeah... the secret to jar opening is the tap, tap tap (with a regular eating knife handle) until you hear the seal break...
Those are people who don't understand how useful competent strength is. It's why I lift weights and walk and work out in my garden... To get these tasks done, get exercise and enjoy the outdoors and fix my home...
Why not both?
Both to a extent but nothing to extreme. I'm not attracted to a six pack and too much muscles. I like a normal body type with a bit of belly.
