Super thin and huge fake boobs is not average and common.

And neither are most of the guys being posted on this thread.

That's kind of the point.

Brown hair

No hair on back
Rugged looks
Big chest/arms and legs
not too pretty
Not too ripped
Some facial growth

What most women end up with is all over the place
Good to know I fit the bill

Our feet our close (I'm a 11 1/2D Mens) my biggest 6' 3" buddy is a 13 D Mens. Our arms are about the same length too. My chest and shoulders are much broader and I have more of a Rottie build. One of my 6' 3" buddies is large build. Like a John Candy build and tips the scales at 325. It looks ok on him because he's always been big. I can give him a piggy back ride. His wife laughs her ass off when we do it! lol His size is starting to catch up with him though. He gets winded very quicky and has started to have some heath problems. The Doc says he need to lose some of it for his own good. I think that might be a good idea.
6'2 210 isn't skinny. In fact, it's overweight unless those extra pounds come from muscle, which is probably implied based on the kind of men being posted but for an average dude whose career doesn't depend on his physiqe, 210 is a guy who needs to watch his burger intake.

That looks okay on him because it's how you're used to seeing him, but it's really not a size the body was meant to handle. I looked it up, John Candy was 6'2 and, despite attempts to diet, always ballooned back to 325 (and more as he got older). He died of a heart attack at 43. I hope your friend is taking his size seriously, and not just writing it off as being the lovable fat guy.

Well, we aren't talking about mall ninjas here. 210 on a 6' 2" frame is skinny. I'm talking manly men who work manual labor. 210 on a 6' 2" suit is going to look plumpy. Most the guys I know who are 6' 2" 6' 3" are at least 230-240. They're far from fat. I even know several guys about 5' 6" to 5' 8" that are 175-185 and aren't fat. When you can bounce a quarter off your forearms, you know you made it.

You girls need to get out more and find some skilled tradesman/Cops/farmers etc... Not fat, just your typical short, stocky guy who works for a living. Even on a 5' 6" frame.

Mike Holmes is super hot!!! Plus has an awesome personality to boot (at least comes off as caring/nice on TV - maybe he is an a-hole in real life)
