Yes. I find broad shoulders on a man to be very attractive.

Default Guys and Broad Shoulders

Agree. I know that the guys that they put in ads on tv or in magazines usually have broad shoulders and ripped abs. That is not the common guy though. It's just like all ads have women with hourglass figures. I have never heard a woman say that they are looking for a guy with broad shoulders.

The appearance of a man is only the facade. What comes out of their mouth and their character is what attracts me.

Of course it is dumb to focus on one exercise for one part of your body. You need a balanced physique to truly look good and to avoid developing later injuries or body pain. However, as far as shoulder exercises that will blast your shoulder size, I would say nothing beats push press/push jerk, snatch and the good ol' military press. Of course, some of the more power exercises I do, like Farmer's Walks beef up your traps, forearms and shoulders like nothing else, but work the entire core and upper body.

Broad shoulders are even sexy on a woman if they are not overkill.
I agree that slumped shoulders and skinny shoulder bones don't look good on anyone.

Bravo for this one! I'll add to it. I'm attracted to bookish men. VERY attracted to them. A man can spend hours at the gym every day and it's blah. But give me a man with intellectual curiosity, knowledge, wisdom, and an ability to analyze, and I melt.

You're just the class clown. Not knocking it. In the girl world, guys with a sense of humor go a long way.

Yeah, broad shoulders can be an extra added bump to the first-glance "whoa factor", but I'm not manic about them.

Looking like a professional bodybuilder is not even possible without the use of powerful (and dangerous) drugs and an extreme commitment to the lifestyle (diet, training, etc.)

An all natural guy with good genetics who weight trains will never go beyond the "great looking" category into the "gross" category. (As women would see it.) Very hard to get "too muscular" unless you're doing stupid stuff.
