I have seen attractive women with guys that are quite heavy & skinny. To each his or her own.

muscles are not important I think that if you do have muscles than a little bit is okay but a whole lot is too much what I mean by that is if I were to draw portrait of you your muscle should be able to be shaded not drawn with a single line.

women prefer lanky guys or guys with toned body, heck some even like chubby ones. What women usually dont like are very fat guys or extremely muscular men

80% of my exes are chubbies even though I am attracted to muscular bodies. It's one of the sacrifices I am willing to make if everything else is fine.

This is the US, most people are overweight and my dating pool is small enough, so discriminating overweight guys would bring it down to 2% for me.

As long as he is still fit and not lazy or gets annoyed with my way of eating, it's all good.

I clearly do not like skinny guys though. Hugging those just feels like hugging a girl.

Define "average male body".

If you're talking average as in overweight....then I personally don't find that to be attractive. Fat is not attractive on men or women, IMO. I find muscular/fit men most attractive because I know how much work and dedication it takes to achieve that look. However, a man can be non muscular and still be attractive as long as he isn't a fat slob.

I think some muscles are nice to look at but wouldn't rule out someone who didn't have them. I don't prefer super lanky guys but if they have a cute face and a nice personality I could work with it. I don't want a guy to be super squishy. I don't like the way it feels when my boobs rub up on someone else's so that would rule out some heavier guys.

You're making it sound like skinny=feminine/fat=masculine, when it's clearly the opposite - Women need fat in their body to carry babies. Men need muscles or have a slender figure (runners, soccer players, etc).

You're clearly going by the whole women-should-be-skinny mindset. They're the ones who look like boys, ironically. They usually lack definite curves where they'd easily be mistaken for a 15 year old boy from behind.

For me personally, if you want, hugging a chubby man would feel like hugging my flabby grandma. Oh, I take it, hugging a chubby woman feels like hugging a man for you?

I have a quite muscular body, more of a bodybuilder/powerlifter intermediate than a proper powerlifter, and I lift because I enjoy doing so, not because I do it to attract women. I still struggle with women.
