Is it true that girls are into muscular men with bulging veins and ripped body, or do they prefer a skinny boy with a pretty face?
I remember when I was an obese little kid, and I thought women would fawn all over me once I develop a nice body.
I did manage to get a pretty decent body after years of hard work.
So, were girls all over me when I managed to sculpt an aesthetic looking body?
Well… the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
So, let’s talk about what I discovered about a girl’s preference for (or against) muscles.
1. Women are evolutionarily wired to prefer a V-shaped body
But, before we delve into talking about my personal experience, let’s talk about what the studies say about a girl’s preference for a muscular man.
Evolutionary psychologists have done more than a handful of studies regarding what type of body women prefer in men.
And they found out that a lot of women have a strong preference for men with a V-shaped body.
A V-shaped torso in a man signifies that he has a well-developed upper body musculature along with a lower body fat percentage.
It also tells a girl that the man likely has a higher level of testosterone which most girls subconsciously find attractive.
So, why have women developed a preference for a physically strong male with a high level of testosterone?
It is because these men make a better protector.
In the ancient times, women were under constant threats of sexual assaults.
A muscular man with a V-shaped torso was able to successfully defend his woman and himself against these threats.
Anyway, that is an evolutionary reason why a girl may prefer a man with muscles.
2. Your muscles make you stand out
Think about how most men are shaped in North America.
Most are either incredibly out of shape or have a very average body with no muscles.
If you are even in a half-decent shape, you will instantly stand out among the sea of average men.
Whatever that is common and abundant loses its’ value (i.e. average body).
On the other hand, your muscular physique will make you unique and instantly grab a girl’s eyes.
And in the world of dating, you are getting off to a good start if you can get a hold of a girl’s attention.
I need to note, however, it is a lot better to be subtle with your positive attributes rather than putting them on full display when it comes to attracting a girl.
For example, it is usually better to wear a long sleeve shirt that fits your body and shows a ‘hint’ of your muscles over wearing a skin tight shirt that looks like it belongs to your 8-year-old nephew.
As soon as a girl thinks you are being a try-hard, her attraction to you will disappear into thin air.
3. It is easier for girls to feel sexual with a muscular man
It is a lot easier for a woman to feel sexual desire toward you when you have a muscular body as opposed to a pudgy one.
This can be due to different reasons as we had discussed earlier.
Maybe, women have a hardwired preference for a man with muscles.
Or maybe, it is the media that’s conditioned women to associate muscles with sexual images.
It may also be a combination of both.
Whatever the reason may be, we know that women are more sexually attracted to men with muscles (assuming you don’t look like a steroid freak).
So, what muscles do women find most sexy?
A V-shaped torso ranks at the very top as we had mentioned earlier.
Many women also like muscular arms, abs, and butts.
But most importantly, you want to stay within a reasonable body fat percentage if you want to attract a lot of women.
As much as some girls love that dad bod look, the majority of girls still prefer a man with a lean body.
4. Your muscles signify hard-work
What else does your muscular body indirectly communicate to a girl?
It signifies your hard work.
It lets a girl know you are a reliable man.
It is not an easy task to acquire a well-developed body.
For most people, it takes years of hard work (assuming you are not using drugs) and consistency.
You also need to exercise a great deal of self-control when it comes to diet and sticking to your workout routine.
These are all signs of a quality man (The caveat is that you should be able to apply these habits to other areas of your life which most gym-goers struggle with…).
And most girls would happily date a man who is handsome, physically fit, and has a great deal of self-control.
How my dating life changed after going through a fat to fit transformation
Let me briefly talk about some of the comments I’ve received from girls after I improved my body.
One of the girls I dated told me that my forearm muscle instantly grabbed her attention when she saw me for the first time.
I’ve also heard another girl talk about how my body was distracting her (I was topless) when she was trying to fall asleep beside me.
And I don’t think I need to mention countless times girls would sneakily stare at me whenever I would wear a nice-fitted outfit at the gym.
Girls do care about muscles on men.
Some like to argue it is the confidence that comes with having a nice body that really does the trick for attracting women.
And when people say that, they are probably thinking of some awkward muscular man who cannot carry a conversation to save his life.
It is true that your muscles are not going to carry you very far if you have the personality of a rock.
It would be a lie if I told you I haven’t met plenty of men who struggle with women despite their impressive physiques.
My dating life didn’t change in any significant way (despite a nice physique) when my brain was filled with the fear of rejection, and I failed to hold a conversation for more than a few seconds.
With that being said, it would be foolish for me to deny that things weren’t a lot easier when I was in shape.
Girls were much more willing to give me the time of day, and it was a lot more effortless for me to get their attention.
I was Introduced to the world of seduction after being a virgin for the first 26 years of life and being dumped by my first girlfriend at the age of 28. The dating world wasn't so kind to a 28-year-old Asian man who barely had any experience with girls. But, I eventually cracked the "code" and began "attracting" two to three new girls a week on average when I was actively going out. I'm not mentioning that to impress you but to impress upon you that you can take your dating life to the next level... IF you are equipped with the right knowledge and a desire to take massive action.
