Hi there do you like your men nuscular or do you prefer men with regular physiques? Not body building muscular but a little more muscels than average. Or does it satisfy you that he is able to lift you off your feet if he needed too??

Just to add a little spice to this discussion...I'm a lesbian so I don't really care about the physiques of men. lol. I want what anyone wants in their relationship....a partner who is my equal in all the ways yet one who can pick up the slack when I can't muster what is necessary. I'm not much into the physical aspects of my partner but lean more to the intellectual side. I'm lucky though in the fact that my partner can lift me off my feet, if she needed to. lol. She's got an adequate physique. She pulls out the screwdriver or hammer when need be and can fix just about anything. I just had to respond to this discussion as I am a "lady"! lol. Happy myLotting!

...Hi there veromar, Well you go girl, we are who we are. You bring a smile to my face as you are very open and honest. :o) The attributes you cite are the necessry or should be the necessary ingredients in any relationship. The only thing in this society or most societies, sadly at times, is that we are attracted or not attracted to the physical aspects of an individual first, be it a man or a woman, before we get too know them as an individual, and then we go from there. I am very attracted to a man who is able to communicate with me, I think smart is sexy. If he is physically atractive, that is a plus. I do not under any circumstances like a man who wants to have a body that looks like something went wrong in the laboratory. Thanks so much for sharing. Sorry I took so long in responding to you, my brain was a bit fried after the other day. :o) Take care. Happy holidays and a have a great New Year.

Hi Artistry. My turn to apologize for taking so long to reply. Holidays...ya know. I met my partner in a Xena chat room on the internet. It was a full year before we met each other in person...mostly because we lived in different countries! lol. We fell in love with each others intellect, sense of humor and things of that nature. Don't get me wrong about the physical attributes. She's a looker! lol. But, that wasn't the main attraction. It wasn't even a consideration for us. We had no choice but to get to know each other over the phone and internet. It gave us an extremely strong foundation to build on. The fact that she's attractive is an added bonus!

...Hi there verimar, Happy 2010. It sounds as if you two have a solid foundation. Your relationship should thrive, I always tell people that I sometimes try to help, always remember to listen to each other. Most of us like to talk, you must listen, not only hear, listen. Take it easy and enjoy the rest of the year. Time goes so fast, 2011 will be here in a little while. :o)

Hi Artistry, my chap isn't into body building muscles but he's muscular. As for the idea of being lifted off my feet if needed he can lift me off my feet whenever he wants, with one hand. (I'd space your discussions a bit more Artistry as they are coming in a block in the friends started).

...Hi thea, Thanks for responding and thanks for the suggestion about the block. That was for the 22nd only, so I would have comments to possibly respond to with having to go searching and taking the time to find something interesting. I am so out of subject matter for the moment and so brain tired, that there won't be any more blocks for a while :o). Well, it sounds like you've got a real winner in the men's body category on your hands. Nice. Men who body build are not attractive to me, as I said before here, they look a bit scary. Thanks again. take it easy.

Although lifts weights, my boyfriend is very skinny. I suppose a need a boy who is "muscular" enough to counter my curves, but I prefer a slim-ish boy. Arm muscles don't really impress me.. Just slightly toned ones.. Toned backs//shoulders are lovely! And a slightly defined stomach would never be missed! But anything too extreme is actually more of a turn off. -although, there are many girls who'd disagree with me!

...Hi chubit, Welcome to the ranch, enjoy, it's a fun place to hang out. :o) I think if the two of you are singing on the same page, that's a good thing. You found each other and that's what it is all about. If he wants too, he could try protein shakes to build up his body, healthy things, not, anything to do with steroids, which are dangerous. Men who are skinny can be very sexy as well. I can think of a few on television who are thin and very attractive. I do not like overly muscuar bodies, I think they look very weird, some women do, that's fine as well. But for me, give me a man with average muscles and I will be okay. Thanks for your response, sorry to take so long in replying to you. Take care, happy holidays to you and yours, and a very Happy New Year.

I don't like guys to be too muscular, but I like them to be in shape and have nice muscles. I definitely don't go for the vein-popping body builder look!!!

..Hi there michmich2, Thanks for your response. When I see men with an over abundance of musles, they remind me of the Incredible Hulk who was played by Lou Ferrigmo(sp), and I did not like the looks of the Incredible Hulk. A man who is a little bit buff and has a some muscles, not to the extreme, is much more my cup of tea. They look good in their clothing with an average amount of muscle and are, I think, attractive enough to the average woman. Thanks again. I apologuze for the time in getting back to you. Have a happy holiday, and a great New Year.

Ha, well I've never expected any of my boyfriends to "lift me off my feet", as you say. LOL. That might be too much work for him, even IF he were a really strong guy! . I don't have a preference. I think it's cool if my guy takes care of his body, and buffness is obviously sexy, but "regular" guys can be attractive all the same. Dating a regular guy (which I've always done) is probably less intimidating than dating a super-buff guy, because I'm not a super-buff chick, I might feel intimidated by his muscular-ness, and I would guess he wouldn't want to date a girl unless she has rock hard abs. So hmm..

....Hi there maezee, I think you make very valid points. If a guy was into keeping himself in shape, not always, but he probably would be attracted to a woman who he felt had that in commom with him. But as I said there are exceptions to that rule. I think a gentleman who has a body that has an average amount of muscles is attractive and they look great in their clothes. Thanks for your response. Sorry for the delay in my reply. Take care. Happy holiday and have a great New Year.
