Ok ladies and gentlemen! Pop open that bottle of wine and settle down

What is your ideal male body type and what can't you stand?

I figured the guys have a thread like this so now it's our turn


Please feel free to add pics as well.



For me:

between 5'10" and 6'1"

Hairy but not Borat hairy

Pure strength but visible ripped muscles aren't required

Big sexy tree trunk legs

Dark hair


Turn offs:

Very little body hair

Skinny...especially chicken legs if I see chicken legs SO UNATTRACTIVE

Flat ass....your ass looks like it belongs on a little girl



Your turn!

Between 6'7 and 6'10, well over 230 lbs, slightly chubby but with muscle underneath. Kind of like a super tall Mike Rowe

Turn offs? Skinny. Super visible muscles, or 'lean' like a runner/bike rider. No thanks.

I like men who can cook, are kind of nerdy, and have discerning taste

Hence my Food Network crushes

Love this. Ideal for me is 6'0-6'3. Great arms -- masculine and muscular, but not steroidy. If you've ever seen a guy who grew up doing farmwork or some other muscle-requiring work, you know what I mean.

Masculine hands - I don't like skinny fingers and I dislike fat "triangle" fingers. Athletic build.
Broad shoulders - didn't know I loved this till I met my husband.

Turn offs -
Steroid guy - like Ronnie from Jersey Shore. Gross!
Fat calves.
If he's smaller than me, either in weight or height.

Strong arms
Dark hair
Great smile

No skinny guys or chicken legs for me either. I don't want to be able to beat you at arm wrestling.

I like tall from around 5'10 to 6'4 or so. Taller is way too tall for me.

Broad shoulders, strong arms. I like muscles, as long as they aren't steroid-y or out of proportion or unbalanced.

I've got loads of other facial/looks traits too but we can focus on the body parts here.

I have a few types. My main type is left over from HS / College and I don't think it's that popular today.

I like guys who are slender and look good in jeans. No six packs or ripped or any of that. I like long hair and broad shoulders. Nice arms with a little cut but no0t overly muscular.

Hands are important to me and I like long fingers that are tapered. Artist's hands.

Height between 5'11" and 6'3" - an inch or two one way or another in fine.

Medium coloring, not swarthy but not too fair.

Major turn-offs - beer bellies, too worked out, Jersey Shore Types, gold chains.

This type was kind of my teen aged template. The slouchy, skinny, rock star, skater who looks great in a pair if jeans.

Who cares what he looks like, if he treats ya right?

I mean, seriously.

If you actually CAN find a man that treats you right, never let him go.

What I find amazing is how many guys think six packs and the steroid look is hot.


I don't see as much of it in Boston but in Florida there is a whole "sub genre" of men in their 20-30s (maybe 40s, not sure) who all they can talk about is the gym, protein supplements, etc.


It's really not attractive when you whole life revolves around it...pretty boring and vain

Wow, I'm not so sure what to make of this. Maybe I have been fortunate in this department although I had to dump my ex when he became psychotically possessive.
