I have seen women who juice, and yes, they tend to look rather "husky". Big deal. Some men like them that way, just like some men like BBWs, some like waifs... It is all a matter of personal preference.

Thank you bcdale39! Anyone I know who is sad about still being single will hear that one from me. I like that attitude, that all women are a turn on to someone. BRAVO!!!

It doesn't matter much what you put as your body type, as long as you have pictures in your profile. The only time I even look at body type is if all someone has for pictures are a head shots.

I like muscular women. Nothing like a toned body with well defined muscles.

Is this a haunted thread taken over by ghosts? The majority of people here are history.

I don't think its something that most men particularly look for. Men who are seen as physically attractive by women usually have six packs and strong muscles all over but many men are attracted to the opposite.

I guess even with visual attraction its connected to the actions or activity that they do (ie go to the gym, play sport etc) that they would need to do to get that physique. With women however sport and exercise doesn't have as much of an influence on what men find attractive.

I guess its still the perhaps sexist notion of men being judged by what they do and women by how they look.

"The majority of people here are history"

>>>they must have found their muscular gal.

I guess its a sign the forums are getting boring, we need to pull up old threads that aren't about people lying to get sex. pity this hadn't been posted in the forum it belongs, b/c it would have closed up like a Venus FlyTrap after 22 or 25 responses.

A muscular female wouldn't be interested in me, b/c i'm not similarly built due to not living the same lifestyle...so its a moot point.

If a women becomes muscular, then they're more than likely using steroids and testosterone boosters. Women dont naturally have enough testosterone to put on what would be abnormal looking muscle.

So the answer is that I wouldn't date a female bodybuilder who uses steroids. But I would date a women who works out and lifts weights... there is a huge difference between the two types of weightlifting. One is obsessive and extreme, the other is healthy and practical.

If I was with a muscular woman, I would do my own oil changes on my car. She could lift up the car and hold it in the air while I change the oil.

I agree with this. I've dated quite a few men who were extremely fit/ripped/muscular, and none of them were into women that were as ripped as they were. They wanted a toned, firm body with curves such as a nice round full butt, womanly hips and of course a nice rack. None of them liked super skinny women either, they wanted curves. I asked many men if they liked six packs on a woman and they all said no, it would made them feel like they are with another dude, lol. They also said they would rather have a woman with cellulite instead of rock hard muscles. Good to know I don't have to kill myself in the gym, just do some yoga and walking and some weights, and that's it.

I will repeat what was mentioned in another thread about the same topic. A woman that has a fit or athletic body type with SOME muscle can be very attractive. I'm not attracted to women that look like hard core bodybuilders.

Actually, I like a toned tummy on a women. 4 pack perhaps! lol

I am a leg /butt guy so I appreciate the muscles in those areas. But it is about tone NOT size. Don't want size.

OP --

If you want people to know that you are muscular, you might want to post some more accurate pictures.

This thread will soon be a decade old in a few months.
OP last posted to the Forums more than five years ago.
Updates are probably rather unlikely at this juncture.

You are absolutely right, Eric.

I guess I am really addressing everyone when I say:

The best way for everyone to represent his/her true body type in a profile is to use current pictures that accurately depict the body type. POF users are more likely to judge a persons body type by what they see rather than what they read.

OP, I'm not trying to be mean, but you don't appear athletic or muscular -- at least not in the pictures you have posted. And I don't even think "muscular" is an option on POF. You really just look average and that is an option.

flirtingwithdisaster, The OP asked a question for discussion. Would you expect her to flex rubbed down in oil? She may just have a naturally thick frame and especially back we can't see. Keep in mind too, you are looking at pictures posted relatively recently for the full body shots - less than 4 years old. The thread was started 10 years ago. A negative for passionate muscular men and women can be what happens when they quit? Will they adjust their diet appropriately? It's hard for most and can undo the health benefits one works so hard to attain.

My thoughts: I've seen women, especially of some body types develop far more stare-worthy muscle than some posters notice. Women's hormonal systems are different, but they're not physically frail or girly-girl as represented popularly. It is superficial to focus on testosterone as if it were the holy grail to making muscles, or write off all major muscle as "taking hormones". Genetics has a role but isn't absolutely necessary to getting naturally musclebound in either gender. There's training, diet, ambition, and local standards, etc.

Big deal what other people call beautiful, especially if she does it for her own well-being, she's more likely a keeper. If the personality is there and the muscles are healthy, I'd be proud of her accomplishment and supportive of her good habits. Same as if she were passionate yogi, a superb writer, an awesome gardener, daring traveler, or a passionate whatever ...

Designingwomen- Don't apologize for how you look, or try to find someone who "accepts" you.
First, accept yourself.
WHen you are confident and comfortable in your own skin, you will feel better about yourself and that is what matters.
Myself, I was raised by my grandparents, my grandfather was a farmer and make us work in the fields, Also, I mostly played with boys growing up, which made me pretty tough, then there is the fact that I have done private duty nursing for 19 years. (lots of lifting)
Being overly muscular is not an issue, but I am VERY strong.
Some men just can't handle it.
But you know what, that is their problem.
I suggest you adopt that attitude.
Even though it is cliche, there really is a lid for every pot, so go find your lid :)
