No, it doesn't intimidate me, but I really like my women feminine.

Alot of the realy girly girls out there that I have met seam to me to be high maintenance. at lease a tomboy is willing to do some things for her self rather than getiing a guy to do it for her.

Depends on the type and the reason.

If she's doing this stuff because she's got something to prove then I wan't no part of her because she's a walking attitude problem.

If she does "because she can" then no problem at all.


I had a gf like this years ago. Not the full on tom boy but the bit that amused me was that she wore jeans most of the time. But she usually wore stockings and suspenders under them.

Girlfriends tell me off when they bring a man around that they think is a " good catch" to find me wearing scruffs and laying a deck
===============================
If he is a good catch he will be more than happy to join you laying the deck. And happier still to join you in the shower afterwards.

I was a tomboy until I decided to change myself(not too long ago) and act girly. But believe me guys want tom boyish girls as friends , they do not want them as girlfriends
======================

Your'e getting girlfriends and sex objects mixed up trish.

Guys want girly girls as sex objects.

Tom boys as friends

And girls who have comftable as either or both, as girlfreinds.

A definite plus in my opinion. They like to have fun!

I am not sure about the women who doesn't want to go outside and get dirty and have fun. If your girl that can't go hiking (or just outside) in the rain and not have to worry about your hair, etc., pee outside, light firecrackers, go camping without a bath, or just plain ENJOY life as a kid forever, what use are they??????

You have to have fun-we are all here for only such a short time. Too many people take life to seriously and don't relax enough to have fun(ny) time and enjoy it.

I say stay 17 forever!!! i really have no desire to grow up, and probably never will.

I am a sports fan, and enjoy cooking on the grill. I grilled some chicken this evening and was it good!

I have a little bit of tomboy in me but I also like to wear nice clothes.

The tomboy side of me loves big home theaters, playing pool, playing old video games, and sports cars. I love muscle cars from the '60s and '70s. I would love to own one, but I would send it to the shop to get worked on by people who work on cars every day. I also like fast racing boats and jet ski boats.

Honestly I think there's a tidbit of tomboy in most women. Even the girly girl types like to garden and enjoy pretty flowers. I enjoy that as well.

At the same time I love to put on the little black dress and go out to a fine restaurant. The girly side of me appreciates fine jewelry, shoes, purses, and clothes.

yes id definately rather be with a tomboy over a prissy girl.

matter of fact, thats my dreamgirl. she likes cars, playing ball, lifting, wrestling, watching football, getting dirty, riding quads etc etc. ive been praying to god for him to send me this girl, but so far shes a no show. thats okay, though. im patient. and im sure she'll be worth the wait.

Actualy guys. Can we all do a little survey here' I'd like to just toss around a few rude descriptions of various girls.

you guys rate them from minus ten to plus ten. It will be interesting to see where the tomboy lands.


- slut
- man hater
- attitude problem
- tomboy
- bisexual
- fat
- ugly
- fridgid
- independent
- messy
- needy
- boring
- fat
- loud
- horny
- preener
- beautiful
- sexy
- friendly
- touchy feely

That will do for starters. Best to the worst guys.

Geeze what a rotten list! I dont' think a tomboy's much of a problem at all.

as a former sexy tomboy during my twentys and thirtys....
it was the greatest times of my life,.... men just ate me up... real men....
as a prissy girl-ie girl all I attracted was shallow, insecure, prima-donnas....
(like the stupid second ex-husband----LAPD----aka----a--hole)

my forty's is a combination of sexy tom boy ,.. and pampered lady for my age.

nothing like bending over in my daisy dukes to dig out weeds in my garden....
it always ended with the ex boyfriend drawing a hot bath for me......ect ect ect ect.......

Joan above put it in an interesting way that it's best to balance being a tomboy and being feminine. Guys, do you agree that the woman who has a little bit of tomboy and a little bit of girly girl in her is the best combination? I enjoy both guy and gal things. Makes life more interesting to say the least.

"Tomboy" is not a problem for me, if it means that she does not accept traditional limitations on what she should be interested in. I *love* a girl who is capable, who can do things that make me sit back and say, yeah, that's my girl. :-) I would be so amused if, one night when I was out with a girl, some guy came up to bug us and she *kicked his ass* before I could. (Anybody ever read "Dune?" I quote, roughly: "When they find out Maud'Dib's woman can best any of them, they will cease to challenge you.")

Now, as for the list of rude descriptions, I notice that you put the word "fat" on there twice . . . wonder what that means? What's fun is to take any two of the words and put them together, like "fat man-hater" or "frigid slut" and imagine them as the headline on somebody's profile . . .

It means that I put the word fridgid in there twice too. But I noticed that one and fixed it.
And it means that I also should have put in the word picky/petty

Holy Cow, This thread is still going strong...lol.... I for one,admire and am attracted to a gal that is a bit of a "tomboy". A gal that can dress up a bit for when we go out to dinner or such, but can also feel comfortable in a pair of jeans as we work on one of our vehicles together. A "tomboy" is a gal that will sit on the dock and fish with you and then say, " Hey, nothing is biting and no one is around so let's go skinny dipping"....

Diamond u just have to be yourself and u will find the guy that thinks u are the hottest thing around.

U have had a lot of men scared of me because I am the kind of person that likes to try new things anything.

I dated a guy that broke up with me becuase I changed the battery on my car instead of asking him for help. " HOW RUDE"

Anyway it just depends on the guy and the situation

A guy who broke up with you over changing a car battery!!!!!??????

What an idiot it's so laughable! That's not a very good reason for breaking up with ANYONE. I am dumbstruck, shaking my head over that one. Over a car battery?????

He sounds like the kind of guy who gets upset over:

Way the toilet paper is set up in the bathroom
A dirty dish in the kitchen sink
Spilling his beer on a shirt
A mouse entering the house
Milk being spilled on the table
Dropping something

Basically this kind of guy is the kind you want to avoid--getting so upset over such small things! He did you a favor by dumping you over a......car battery!

i find it both, which ends up being sexy i think it has more to do with women with ambition - got it goin on men have a frame of mind that changes so much, but one thing never changes - gotta take care of business. when a woman has that drive, to dare to be different (probably just doing what she likes) thats so hot, and i got to give it up!

Even right now I'm a truck driver. I load, chain down, unload and unchain new cars and pick up trucks that needs to be delivered to dealerships. With a 80 feet rig.

Where are you driving an 80 ft rig? Didn't think that the USA tolerated much more than a 60 footer and 18 wheeler.
