You will find a lot of guys who start going to the gym only because they think getting ripped will help them getting laid. There is another category of guys who start lifting only because their girlfriends want some meat on their bones. And then there are men who do it for themselves.
Is it the Body, Personality or Money?
The enlightened men who do it themselves just because they like doing it are the ones who stick around and continue to lift those heavy weights whereas the rest get lazy and leave the gym with no or little muscle on their bones. But the question still remains do girls really get attracted by muscular men?
Well, generally no girl would like their man to be sissy-looking and there is something about muscles which make men look dominant and aggressive. A slim guy who transforms himself into a muscular physique is likely to improve his success rate with women. However some women also perceive bodybuilders to be narcissistic, boring, unintelligent and insecure. What women don’t know is the fact that a bodybuilder is a consistent hard-worker. A keen researcher and one who likes to experiment from time to time. This means that the traits of a builder are discipline, commitment, and competitiveness.
All of this comes down to what you have heard a lot of times before from girls; personality is the key factor in getting laid. Being ripped and hunky isn’t the solution to get girls going crazy over you. The increased confidence gained by the improvement of your physique is what makes the impact. However, before you get completely fooled let me tell you in this era women are more into appearance.
It happens to be that women are interested in a man having a good personality, money and an aesthetic body. Studies have shown that men are getting more and more self-conscious about their physical appearance and putting everything to reach closer to their ideal body.
Some women would be attracted to the physiques of Zac Efron or Christiano Ronaldo. Both being toned and ripped but not much muscle whereas some women would want a build like that of Henry Cavill in Superman Man of Steel.
Although, some girls will admit finding big muscular guys more attractive while other girls find them a complete turn-off.
So the bottom-line is that whatever type of body you want to build go for it irrespective of the fact whether girls like it or not because at the end of the day it is no use if you’re only working out to impress women.
