LOL! You are a genius! I LOVE your definition of a tomboy. It is incredible and I'm going to steal it. I fix computers for a living and I get the strangest looks. Especially when my nails are done and I wear 'pink'. When I get asked whether or not I'm worried about my nails I say they make great screw drivers, tweezers and jumper pullers. But I swear when I fix something of theirs (men) that is broken I can see a certain amount of admiration in their faces. My ex husband once told me all the women I rode horses with looked like dikes...are you kidding me???? Lithe musular women with long pony tails and tanktops sporting chaps (essentially a leather frame for the behind)....what some guys think are sexy I don't know. I think that some men think that condfident women don't 'NEED' them. I personally would much rather be 'WANTED'. Let me tell you something, if someone like me WANTS you, it's a compliment. Why do we always need to be in distress????? I guess I should tie myself to some train tracks if I want to get a date.

Ya know, I'm one of those tomboys. I change my own oil, worked at Lube Pros before I was a non-union sider, before I became a union carpenter. My shout out to Rockford Local 792. I talk to all these guys that say a woman not afraid to hold her own would be the perfect find, but here I am and all the guys tell me I intimidate them, they can't do anything to impress me, or help me with anything 'cause all the handywork, I can do myself. Which is it boys, do you, or do you not want the "perfect" woman to be like the best guy friend only do-able. Make up your minds.

I'm definitely a tomboy! I don't mind getting dirty if it means getting something done. I like to hike, bike, walk, fish, camp, etc. It's all about having fun!

Depends how much. If she has dirt under her fingernails and big calous (spelling) on her feet then ick! If she is just willing to fo guy things, but can still clean up then thats atractive.

I think tomboys are awesome unless they're a little to manly (like body builder women.... yuck). And women who chew tobacco.... worse than smoking.

It depends...
If you're talking about those girls that look like the action heroines...
Having the nicest figure, yet can do stuff like riding a bike in dirt,
or jumping into lakes that look dirty,
and at the end of the day still have a perfect face and a perfect body...
Then it's a plus...

On the other hand, if she digs her nose in public,
looks dirty
and never bathes...
then a minus...

So being a girl (tom boy or not)
you must first be a perfect person...
that's what I call attractive...

Cause if you can't be perfect after being dirty,
don't try to get dirty in the first place...

Guys are people as well...
some are stuck-heads...
like the gas station guy (remember his occupation... don't get much gas station guys who are polite unless his boss instructed them to...)
so don't judge all guys by one guy's comments/behaviour...

Maybe if you start to judge guys as people... and girls like people...
then you'll start to realise it's not "The guys" in your life... it's the people in your life...

And if you're finding a guy in your life... it's just a matter of choosing one special friend...

I lovetomboys! My late wife was one. One of e most loviung, sensual, sexual, caring women in the world. Yet with a nice masculine streak. But not too much! So we could pal around as well as be intense lovers. God, I loved her.

for some of us it's not a matter of choice. If I'm not going to do it, who is? The old guy next door who just had his hips replaced? Trust me, no one out here has ANY doubts about how female I am, even under the car.

I am a big time TOMGIRL, Tomboys dress like guys. I love to do guy things, and have even done brake jobs, changed a radiator and thermostat, and even changed a valve cover gasket.
I drive a big truck, but I can surely walk dress in flashy clothes and look great.

TomBoys are a turn on. There is nothing sexier than a woman mixing concrete! LOL

Hey, if she's too good to get her hands dirty then she's probably too good to go out on a harley and get hot and sweaty on a summer day.

I found this Forum most interesting.

Having been raised between two brothers on a farm, being a Tomboy is as natural as rain to me.
I find it amusing that so many men say that they enjoy, or even prefer Tomboys. Over time I've found this to be a somewhat insincere statement. I think that most men find us a novelty, rather than desirable, in the final stretch. The helpless, painted and perfumed, one mark shy of an imbecile type woman seems to always walk off with the man.

I think there's nothing wrong with acting like a tomboy but dressing like one is not cool! God gave us curves, so why not accentuate them! My push up bra is the most important piece of clothing I own right now.
